Planning a party is hard enough, but what more if you need to host an executive event like a company dinner or a fund-raising activity for investors?
With these types of events, you need to aim for as close to perfection as possible. Everything from the lighting to the food must be spot-on and faultless. You need to know every detail of the event, and must be as involved as you can with the preparations, in order to immediately address any issue that may arise. Here are some steps that you can follow when planning such an event:
Before anything else, finalize the guest list. This will let you know the number of people who will be attending, and allow you to make arrangements for the appropriate venue. You need to consider not only the number of attendees but also the purpose of the event. Getting a room that is too small is considered a disaster, while a room that’s too big is not cost-effective, and could lead to distractions.
