How to Create an Event Budget

An event budget is the estimated costs associated with putting on an event. It is based on research, expert guidance and planning the event. Types of events include private, corporate, and hybrid events. Private events are invitation-only, while corporate events are invitation-only and focus on the company's employees or clients. Corporate events can be used to train staff, educate the public, celebrate milestones, usher in changes in the company, and provide networking opportunities or team-building exercises.

In-person events involve participants and event staff physically present in the same space, while online events involve participants and event producers and vendors interacting in real time. To create an accurate budget for an event, it is important to identify the event planning strategy and a ballpark figure of what you're willing to pay. To create an event plan, it is important to identify the venue, speakers, staffing, branding, food, marketing, and equipment.

The most important details are to estimate fixed and variable costs, create an event budget, and monitor actual and planned costs.

Knowing these costs helps you come up with a more accurate event budget. Finally, you need to monitor actual costs and compare them to planned costs to stay on budget.
