Event Planning Tips for Beginners

February 11, 2020

#1 - Building An Event Budget 


Budget planning is all about maximizing cost-effectiveness. It’s essential to think critically about what you will be spending your money on. 

#2 - Selecting The Right Venue 

Once you have a good understanding of budget, estimated event size, and space requirements, you can begin your search for a venue. Be sure to take a guided tour of any potential venue on your list so you can check out the facilities before you book.

VenueHub brings 1,200+ memorable event spaces together in one place making it fast and simple to find somewhere that fits your exact needs.

#3 - Create An Master Plan


Mapping out all major activities, event planners can estimate the duration of each task, set deadlines, and assign responsibilities. This ensures everyone else on the team has a clear idea of what work is needed from them and when.  

#4 - Do A Run Through


Organize a meeting with your team and mentally walk through everything before the event, from initial set up to the follow up process. Often complications are highlighted at these meetings, and you will have time to correct them.
