Planning for an event is not easy. You could get confused and frustrated in no time. However, you need to take it easy and go one step at a time with the event planning process. Creating an event timeline can help you stay on track and bring the excitement of hosting the event back into the mix.
Of course, the current realities of the pandemic can throw a lot of things into the uncertainty bin. But as long as you have a solid event timeline and have trusted partners on your side, you have no reason to fear. An event timeline can give you an insight into how far out you should plan your event, the contingencies to be in place, and what you should focus on at specific milestones as indicated in your plan.
Setting Up Your Event Timeline
Event timelines keep your event and event planning process on track. It records deadlines and expectations for all members of the event management team. These guidelines also include measurable indices that are vital to avoid derailing the overall planning process. Without it, your team can easily get lost in the myriad of uncertainties. The event timeline has to be visualized at all times to ensure all team members remain motivated and focused.
The type of event planned would determine how far out the event timeline should be created. For instance, preparing for a conference or most corporate events may require a year. Therefore booking venues and planning activities for the event are done as soon as possible. On the other hand, a virtual event timeline may require just 12 weeks out in most cases.
