You have an important event coming up in NYC. You want it to be a smashing success but you aren’t quite sure how to handle all of the details. Event planners in NYC are around every corner and you need to make sure that you select right one. Here are some things to consider before making your final commitment:
- Event Purpose
Know exactly what type of event you want to host. Confirm if it is personal or corporate in nature. Determine who and how many people will be in attendance and what type of venue is preferred.
- Planner Role
Understand your expectations of the event planner. If you have already made some upfront non-negotiable decisions and/or purchases make certain that they are aware. Determine if you want help with something specific such as a venue or assistance with the entire event from A-Z.
Know your budget beforehand. Prioritize event details from most to least important so that the planner can re-work the budget for lesser items if required.
- Interview Planner
Through word of mouth or via professional membership groups specializing in event planning, select at least three potential candidates to interview.
- Meet and Greet / Finalize terms
Once you make a selection, bring the planner in to meet face-to-face to start talking specifics and finalize terms.
