Plan for your level of expertise. If you have never planned a business event before and you have decided that rather than adding a professional planner to your team and try it on your own; start slow and low key – creating a smaller happening, rather than a very large conference or dinner party. This will help you learn some of the basics behind doing this and it will give you confidence when planning the next event.
If you decide that you’re going to bring on a professional or you don’t have the ability to be on the “down low” then…

Choose wisely – these people are going to be there for you throughout the entire process, so you need them to be truly trustworthy and make you and your company’s vision and brand a priority.
Create a budget. How much can you really afford to spend with this event? Set your budget on paper and allow some extra for unexpected expenses. Also, do make sure to stick to your plan if you don’t want to face financial issues after the event.
Visualize the entire event from start to finish. This will help you put its elements in order and it will also help you pay attention to all those minute (but extremely important details). Sit down with your team and think things through!
