The Business of Event Planning: Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of Successful Special Events

 
9780470831885: The Business of Event Planning: Behind-the-Scenes Secrets of Successful Special Events

Practical tools and expert advice for professional event planners

Before planning an event, there is much that must be done behind the scenes to make the event successful. Before any thought is even given to timing or location of the event, before the menus are selected and the decor designed, there are proposals to be written, fees and contracts to be negotiated, and safety issues to be considered. This book takes you behind the scenes of event planning and explains every aspect of organizing and strategic planning. This book will be of value to both the professional event planner and to clients who are dealing with planners.

Its comprehensive coverage includes: how to prepare winning proposals, and how to understand them if you are the client; how to determine management fees; negotiating contracts; safety issues; designing events in multicultural settings; and new technology that makes operations more efficient (such as online registration and response management, database project management tools). The book also includes practical tools such as sample letters of agreement, sample layouts for client proposals, forms, and checklists. Professional event planner Judy Allen offers first-time or professional event planners all the top-class advice they need to make their special events come off without a hitch.

From the Author:

Event planning is like performing a high-wire act without a safety net. Once your event starts, there are no second chances. It is all done in one take, and there are no dress rehearsals. You cannot predict how your guests and suppliers will interact and react when you bring them together, but you can organize, plan and be prepared for the unexpected.

The Business of Event Planning helps event planners and their clients produce outstanding events that meet and exceed both client and guest expectations, by going beyond the details of the event itself. This book explains every aspect of the business and the strategy behind successful events.

Its comprehensive coverage includes:

The strategic thinking behind event design

How to prepare winning proposals, and how to understand them if you’re the client.

How to determine management fees and negotiate contracts

The safety issues that every planner needs to take into consideration

Designing events in multicultural settings

New technology that makes operations more efficient

Practical tools such as sample letters of agreement, sample layouts for client proposals, forms, tips, and checklists

A detailed case study that runs throughout the book – one company that is organizing two very different events
