The event planner works under stressful environment with strict deadlines to meet. It’s them who in spite of taking care of each and every minute details will have to get in touch with a lot of people at a single point of time hence making more hectic for them. Their working hours can be extensively long. For instance, the day the event is taking place, event planners day could begin in the early hours at 5:00 a.m. continuing till midnight and their busy schedule sometimes demands working on weekends as well, which is the time when most events take place.
Even if it’s for a wedding or a company event or birthday celebration or festival, graduation or convocation or for that matter any event, detailed planning is required. From these, the event planner will have to select guest list, entertainment, venue and content. Venues for an event can vary from restaurants or hotels to swimming pools to lawns, depending on what type of event it is and when the location is finalized, the coordinator/planner needs to set up and organize the event with the staffs, prepare for the entertainment, and will have to speak with the client for the final approval. Once these things are taken care of, the event planner has to look into all the minor details like food, drinks, music, advertising, marketing, decorations in order for the event to run smoothly. Therefore, time management is an essential factor for an event planner to run a particular event successfully so that the length of preparation required for each event is well balanced!
