Event Development – Direction (Part One)
“The following is a continuation of my Event Development Series. The last Blog started describing the “Commitment” section, now I want to move to the “Direction” section. This week’s Blog is the beginning of this section. As suggested previously, any thoughts and idea are more then welcome!”
Would you take an important trip without having a final destination planned? I doubt it. Holding a successful event is much the same. You need to know your ultimate goal. Like your trip, there are many methods and routes you can take, but the final destination is always the same. Knowing exactly what you want to achieve is absolutely essential to completing a successful event. Knowing the final destination tells you where you want to go lets you plan how to get there and finally, lets you reach your target quickly with minimum problems. Having frank and open discussions on the project’s ultimate goals, will allow all participants to take ownership and work together to make the project happen.
