Cvent has provided us with a fascinating article. It's the day in a life of an event planner.
People who work in the industry are very busy. They're constantly running around arranging and rearranging things every day, every minute of the day. Sometimes these guys work even extra hours to ensure that everything is perfect and the client will meet every need and requirement.
We know that these people are very busy but do we know what goes through the day and their minds?
We probably have this general idea of how event planning works because we have never professionally hosted or planned an event. First of all, these event planners have to find the right venue which hosts The Party. Finding the right venue is not as simple as it may sound because it requires a suitable space for the number of guests that may arrive. Apart from the area, the location is also critical. Maybe the client is particular about the place, or perhaps he doesn't know what he wants but has this general idea of what he likes; you are the one who must find the perfect location for his clients so that both of you are happy.
Finding the area or the Venue is just the beginning of the whole day because, during the event, there are many more things we have to consider. During the event, there are so many things we have to keep in mind, for example, the Party Planner must keep in mind what food is going to be served, what music is going to be played what kind of decorations are going to be put around the venue or maybe in the Open Space where the events take part.
Guests are always searching for something. That's why the planners and their employees must be vigilant at all times. Nothing should go wrong.
Some events might last longer than one day, some last for up to 3 or four days, making it very tiring and very difficult to attend and make sure to make everything perfect. That is not it! The after-party is also a topic on its own. Having to clean up everything, gather all your belongings, and relax before your next event.
