Event Management: A Quick Guide

Event management is the process of creating an event, from the idea to the planning, execution and maintenance of the event. It can be anything from a birthday party for your kid to a business convention and can involve a variety of disciplines such as sourcing designing, regulation checks and on-site management. An event manager starts with an event plan, deciding on essentials such as when and where the event will take place, developing a theme, if appropriate, and overseeing the event to make sure it runs as planned. An event planner is the one who chooses the theme and concept, selects the venue, plans the menu and arranges for any entertainment or speakers. Both event managers and event planners work hand-in-glove or sometimes one person will fill both roles depending on the size and type of event being planned.

Event management can be applied to any event, but professional events are especially important because they can have a financial impact on the business. Corporate events are put on by a company or organization and can include team building, conferences, recruiting, product launches, etc. Private events can be a birthday party or an event for adults. The difference between a corporate and private event is the planning and effort that goes into creating a great experience.
