To ensure everything is well planned on the day of the event, here’s the ultimate event planning checklist you must always use.
If you are handling a reunion or family event planning during Christmas or any festive season, always ask your client if the members have allergies or perhaps ask for their food preferences. Moreover, if the client does not want to spend some time in food choices, handle him sets of the menu that you can cater for the event.
When it comes to logistics, make it a point that your chosen venue can accommodate the number of expected guests to avoid inconvenience during the event. Part of the logistics is preparing an emergency kit. If the client wants to go live on their social media accounts to share the event with family members from abroad or just get more audiences for the company brand awareness, verify digital connections are excellent.
Meanwhile, for the last part of the event planning checklist, do not forget the wrap-up section! It means this is your time to survey to the attendees, de-brief and share the recap of what happened during the event with the client.
The Wrap-up section of event planning checklist is to help you to identify if you were able to satisfy the client and if not, let this be your guide in improving your service. You should be able to accept constructive criticism to get ahead of your competitors. Wrap up also means to discuss within your team about the event goals that you were able to accomplish and the other whatnots.
Remember the three essential parts in event planning checklist: Food, logistics and wrap up!
