Creating a post-event report is an essential part of any event that was organized by you. This is because reporting on an event gives you and your client valuable insight as to how effective the event actually was.
An agenda for the event can help you significantly in terms of planning and organizing. It’s a great way to know whether you have the required resources to conduct the entire event without any disruptions.
Aside from this, a comprehensive agenda may also include instructions as to what should be done if some aspect of the event goes wrong. This is perhaps a form of contingency planning which is vital for any event.
It might come as some surprise to people that the subject of sponsorships still eludes event organizers or conference planners. It is, after all, not an easy task to find a company or corporation that’s willing to sponsor anything that costs money at your event these days, especially in today’s challenging economic situation.
Not-for-profit organizations have a limited amount of funds. It makes event organizing a real challenge. One of the main attention getters, is a guest speaker, preferably one who will speak for free.
The primary source of funding for non-profit events is pro-bono services and sponsorship. There are a variety of free speaker resources for event organizers to approach. To find the right person for the job, organizers must look at their criteria and then send a “spellbinding” invitation to a few chosen candidates.
Sponsorship is the fastest growing form of marketing. With this in mind, you can find unlimited opportunities to broaden your competitive advantage by increasing your credibility, image, and prestige in sponsoring events which attract your target market.
There’s nothing more depressing than spending a ton of money and endless hours planning an event which turns into a total “non-event” because of the lack of attendance. Empty chairs are probably the biggest nightmare for event planners.
An event sponsorship can be defined as a critical source of funding for all kinds of events where companies, nonprofits, and small businesses give a certain amount of cash or incentives, in exchange for both visibility and brand awareness at an event.
