Planning the Event
All successful events start with a plan. A special event is an organized activity, incorporating many elements, so a plan helps you stay organized and includes all the details necessary to make your event a success. The elements that go into a plan for a special event of any type include determining your objectives, identifying your audience, and conducting research.
Logistics refers to working out everything involved in selecting and developing the right type of event to achieve your objectives. Even if you are organizing a simple meeting, the selection of the location, timing and date, speakers, and activities are all crucial decisions that influence the ultimate outcome.
Now you are ready to execute the plan you have developed. Event-day coordination involves executing the event plan and making sure everything goes as planned. As coordinator, it is the event manager’s job to be the point person responsible for the coordination of all activities. That could be as simple as arriving at the meeting room early and making sure officers are there and ready to give officer reports, or as complex as orchestrating the details for a crowd of attendees at a banquet. Event managers need to be good team leaders, good listeners, and good communicators. Other elements of event-day coordination include programming, atmosphere, and staffing.
