Through my job I’ve come across Event Managers on events and I’m always intrigued (and surprised) by the random objects they pull out of nowhere that can literally save the day – a bit like Mary Poppins and her bottomless handbag! When something goes wrong, I’ve noticed how experienced Event Managers will just deal with it, using their own toolbox of ‘event essentials’, rather than chase the venue and wait for someone else to sort the problem out.
So I’ve created a checklist of event management essentials, inspired by their impressive organisational skills. My intent is that this list can be used by people who are new to event management and want to be well-prepared for upcoming events. (As a bonus I’ve included handy dandy check boxes)
I recommend printing this post out and using it as a shopping list to replenish items after an event. Hopefully this checklist will prevent you from worrying about forgetting something, so you can spend your time planning and managing successful events.
