Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Event Development (continued)

 The following is a continuation of my Event Development Series. Several months ago, I started the series with the first section, “Initial Development”. The second section is entitled “Research and Preliminary Planning”. Now that you and your team have decided to proceed with the event, it’s time to get serious! As suggested previously, any thoughts and idea are more then welcome!

Research and Preliminary Planning

Research (Continued)

  1. What will our costs be?
  2. When will we hold our event?
  3. What will the theme of our event be and will it be relevant to our area?
  4. What can we expect in revenue?
  5. Will we be able to find donors and sponsors in our area to support the event?
  6. Where can we hold the event?
  7. Will the location accommodate all we want to do?
  8. What type of people will come to our event and from where?
  9. Can we count on any government assistance and what form will it take if it is available?
  10. How much manpower will we need during the event and where will they come from?
  11. Are there enough core volunteers to plan and execute the event?
  12. Will there be community support for the event?
  13. What materials do we need to rent, borrow or purchase to make our event happen?
  14. Where will the materials come from – locally or out of region?
  15. What special requirements will we need to consider – licenses, road closures, fencing, washrooms, electricity, security, garbage disposal, etc?
