Event Planner Series: Event Check List

The second in my Event Planning series is on how Event Producers organize themselves and make sure they are on track. There are so many apps and programs that can help keep you on track, but my favorite way is the good old fashioned checklist. Whether you update your moleskin or your iPhone, all event producers need a checklist from the beginning to the end. See below for the initial 10 points I start every event with. 

  1. Venue (Capacity, restrooms etc)
  2. Marketing Plan
  3. Food and beverage – allergies, special meals
  4. Signage
  5. AV
  6. Photographer
  7. Temporary Staff
  8. Internet – wifi
  9. Insurance
  10. Run of Show
Throughout the series I will review each of the above points to give pointers, tips and some great products, apps and technology to consider to help you on your way. Check back for the first one on Venues and what to look for at a site visit!

Not into the notebook style of checklists? Here are some great apps and programs to help keep you on target:
