The key to organising a successful event involves considering many specific details.
Use the Event Management checklist available on SharePoint as part of your planning process to ensure you cover off all of the important details. This checklist is designed as a reference document to assist you with managing logistics, communicating with your event hosts, guest speakers and VIPs, and ensuring the event is delivered on time and on budget. This is an example template that can be adapted according to your event needs.
The timeline we provide is also only a guide. The most important thing to remember is to begin planning your event as early as possible to ensure your preferred suppliers and venue are available, as well as any guest speakers.
You should have your invitations and guest list designed, approved and ready to send a minimum of six weeks prior to the event.
While a timeline is included on the event management checklist, the sooner you begin planning the better!
