Events large and small require a good plan, with a carefully crafted itinerary and a schedule that tells everyone where they need to be, and when. There are several important ingredients that will go into a plan, ensuring that an event can run to schedule. These are some of the most important ones:
- Plans for external resources and contractors. This will usually include photographers primarily; their services make events successful and ensure there are memories to look back on. If the event is a business event, they can also provide marketing imagery to promote the event and other services for the business in question.
- Venue hire. This is one of the factors that will need to be secured well ahead of time. Venues are in demand and good ones get booked up quickly.
- Travel and transport. Arrangements will need to be made for people travelling to the venue. It is also important to communicate transport options to people, such as car parks and public transport.
