No matter how enticing it sounds, event management is definitely a stressful profession. There are a plethora of things to be achieved at a limited time you are given, and in most cases, the deadline is just a step away from approaching. Since we all agree to the notion of time being the money, here are few tips to make you’re planning a bit easier by saving time during the entire procedure of planning, preparing, and executing. So, let’s just hop into it.
TIME-SAVING EVENT PLANNING TIPS
BETTER TO START BEFORE TIME
For an imposing task like event planning, it is always best to start as early as possible. This way, you will be able to give yourself more time to consider every little detail and work on it. The early you commence, the more options you will have in terms of venue, catering, decoration, etc.
TAKE A HELP OF EVENT SOFTWARE
Thanks to the inimitable technologies that introduced the event industry to such amazing event applications and software to ease out the burden. Using these resources will not only save you time but it will also create a complete brand/company experience for each of the participants.
There are ample of useful applications to make your lives less difficult as event planners. Choose the one based on your event requirements to deliver an outstanding event.
PRIORITIZE TIME AND TASKS
It’s a basic tip for planners to speed up and increase productivity. Prioritize your checklist based on the important tasks and define a relevant deadline for each of them. Now start with the most important one but remember, one task at a time. This straight and simple practice will help you to manage time when planning an event.
PURSUE A PROVEN STRATEGY
There is no harm in taking inspiration from proven templates and processes you can follow. You will gain valuable insights by carefully overviewing previous successes and failures of other planners. Try to learn from fail practices and apply the successful ones in your event.
START WITH CREATING TASK LIST
Writing down the task in a checklist format and mark the status against them in the same has many benefits. Firstly, you will never leave any task unattempt, not even the smallest detail. Secondly, the list will allow you to structure your day (accomplishments, in-process task, yet to start, etc.) Once everything has been written down, you can begin to schedule each task for specific days. This is a perfect way to be organized during the process.
HIRE OUTSIDE HELP IF REQUIRED
At times you might feel the need for hiring event freelancers. Especially, when the event is bigger and assigning tasks to your team is not enough. Freelancers can help you out in a number of areas such as website development, customer support, and event photography.
BE READY FOR UNEXPECTED
Event planning includes numerous variables from planning to implementation. Therefore, not everything goes as smoothly as you have planned. It’s better to be prepared for unexpected situations during the event. Re-check even the tiniest detail related to the event a few weeks before it starts. Hence, you will have enough time to complete the unfinished tasks.
