, Bell Tower CEO, knows that details count when it comes to planning an event of any size. However, fully analyzing the festivities from start to finish is especially important when it comes to major events. This allows the person in charge of planning to ensure that they have not missed any major details that may harm the overall success of the day. For this reason, Igo applauds a new article
offering this and other tips in order to help an event planner enjoy success.
The focal point of the day will vary depending on the type of event and the people expected to attend, but Roger Igo encourages all event planners to focus on the atmosphere as they create a special day. Whether it is a fancy wedding, a trade show, or an anniversary party, the atmosphere contributes to the overall success of the festivities. Attendees should have plenty of room to walk around and socialize, without feeling as if they are crowding other partygoers. The decorations should also reflect the atmosphere. A formal wedding will call for elegant and romantic decorations, whereas a trade show should exude energy and inspiration.
For events where food will be served, a careful attention to detail is a must when doing the menu planning. The food selection should have choices that appeal to a diverse range of tastes. This includes gluten-free and vegetarian options, as well as choices that kids will love. The time of year will also help to shape the menu. For example, heavy pasta dishes feel out of place during an outdoor wedding in July. However, light fruit salad and fruity drinks may feel strange at a networking event held in December. A person should consider these elements as they plan the meal for the festivities.
The beverage choices matter too, and should include a range of choices for non-drinkers. While a wide selection of wine and beer is sure to please, there should still be appealing and creative options for those skipping alcohol too. This may include fresh iced tea or lemonade, or selections of unusual coffees and teas. A deep list of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic choices ensures that everyone feels comfortable no matter what their personal preferences may be.
The type of event will also determine how the room is set up. For a networking event, an intimate setup of smaller tables may be too intimate. However, a small wedding is the perfect place for a few small tables. Should the event focus on a speech, it is imperative that all people, regardless of where they are sitting in the room, can see the speaker. Keeping these points in mind helps the event planner to select the perfect layout.
"It's often helpful to have a few different people working together on an event. They can offer unique perspectives and work together to ensure that no small detail falls through the cracks. A group of people will also have access to more connections than just one person alone," explains Roger Igo, Bell Tower CEO.
