Locate your location carefully
If you are running a business event such as a conference or a meet up, make sure that the location is somewhere around the business hub of the city or an area where most companies are located. Because, the closer you are to them the less likely they are to encounter any travel related problem.
If you are organizing an event by inviting delegates visiting from different countries, it can be near the airport. Not only will it cut down the travel costs but help you ensure that all delegates will reach well on time.
Attitude is key
Just like laughter, happiness is infectious too. Keep your spirits high and your teammates will be happy too. It always happens that the vibe that you give out is the vibe that you will get back. So, don’t miss out happiness from the event checklist.
What could go wrong with every step of your event?
Imagine & write down - You might have been told - be positive and everything will be fine; or focus on the positives. Let me tell you, when it comes to events - do not focus on the positives. Remember the positives but focus on the possible negatives and plan accordingly. Write down everything that could go wrong in your event at every step and even plan out how you would solve them.
Honestly speaking, that would require some extraordinary planning! But that might just turn out to be the most useful thing you do for your event.
Always keep following up
There are two things you need to remember in this: make sure that each and every person involved in your event knows that you expect to get an update after a point of time and automate the event. Use event automation softwares available, conduct online registration, make sure your employees are always connected through any of the online apps.
This way you don’t have to bother asking others for updates and still be updated.

Video recording the entire event may or may not be a priority for you. But keeping track of all that happens in the event, in the form of videos and photographs can be a big help for social media marketing & future purposes.
A company that does this and also takes out a solid final output, one which is in sync with the message you are trying to communicate, will ease your stress manyfolds. After that, only remember to - Keep calm & let shoot.
