What are the steps to organize an event?

The event organization is important to make it a success. However, it is a process that requires a lot of work, time, patience, responsibility and investment. Every event, whether small or large, is a social space where many people interact, so it is necessary to pay attention to every detail of the planning process to leave the best impression on your audience. 

However, if this is your first time planning an event, here are some steps that will ensure you stay on track and guarantee a successful event.

1- Define the objectives of your event

To start with the event organization, you must first be clear about your objectives, you must ask yourself the following questions: What do I want to achieve with this event, what type of audience is it aimed at, what type of format will best suit them? With these questions, you will be able to make a list of the objectives and goals you wish to achieve in your event.

For example, if it is a corporate event, one of the main objectives may be “To enhance the company’s brand”, “To increase the number of sales of a certain product”, among others. Therefore, it is important to define well what you are looking to achieve. 

2- Establish a budget for the event

Events require a lot of investment, especially if you want a large audience. Therefore, one way to verify your expenses will be through the creation of a budget. Generally, what you should cover in your budget are the products, the venue, the extra services of an organizer (if requested) and other emergency expenses.

3- Choose an executor

When we talk about choosing an executor, we mean getting an agency that offers event organization services or a supplier of raw materials. Both options are ideal to have an extra help in the planning process, since we need expert and qualified people who provide us with the best advice to obtain a successful event. 

However, if you are a complete beginner in the event organization, it is best to have an event planner with you. At Clarine Daniel we have the best event planners and coordinators, so they will guide you through your project without any inconvenience. 

4- Develop an outstanding brand

In an event it is important to stand out from the competition, and to achieve this it is necessary to develop a good brand. Therefore, you must have a practical but authentic event name, and have an interesting theme for the audience. So the best thing to do is to brainstorm ideas taking into account what we have mentioned.

5- Locate a suitable site and choose a date

Two important details in any event organization are the date and the location. You should start looking for available venues for the type of event you want to create, you also need to verify that it has good access for your audience. Also, the date is a factor to consider when choosing a venue as it can change due to various circumstances, therefore, it is best to secure a good date and location that meets your needs for the event. 

6- Search for sponsors

It can be difficult to find sponsors to host an event, but it is possible. The first step is to research potential sponsors within your industry. Often, the companies you want to sponsor have participated in similar events in the past. If you contact these companies and offer benefits, it may increase the likelihood that they will sponsor your event.

7- Plan the program to be executed at your event

An event cannot be improvised, especially if you are looking for partnerships. Within the event’s organization, you must also plan the program, which will depend on the main theme or the selected format. Whether you plan to include workshops, conferences or a touristic tour, you must organize the time, the disposition of the speakers (if any) and the order of execution so that everything flows smoothly.

8- Create a team for the event

Events are difficult to manage alone; you always need more people to assign functions to be performed during the event. Therefore, the people who will help you must be fully responsible, competent and stable. Make sure you have the right number of helpers and that each one has a set function, without repeating themselves.

The event organization is not an easy task; it is a very well structured process to leave no room for mistakes.
