Creating an event is no small feat. It takes planning and understanding of the process. When planning an event, there are a multitude of tasks to consider. In this guide we will explore together how to effectively plan and produce an event.
Types of Events
An event is a planned social occasion. Events can be small intimate family gatherings, or huge galas. You can have an event for charity, or for your baby’s first steps. Because the spectrum is so vast, there are of course many different types of events. In this section, we will review the most common types of events. Conferences and Seminars are one example.
Conferences and Seminars
Conferences and seminars are meetings for discussion or training. Usually, they are offered in a large setting, like an auditorium, and have speakers. These types of events can have singular or multiple speakers. They can incorporate an open forum or have a question-and-answer allotted time. A corporation can use this type of event to train new employees, or share new techniques for the employees’ job. They can also use this forum to get feedback from their employees on new implemented policies. A group such as a club or non-corporate organization, can use this type of event for giving information to its members, or getting feedback. An example would be Boy Scouts of America Troup Leaders collecting for a conference on new merit badges.
