Developing the Event Strategy
Once you have your event goals confidently defined, brainstorm the steps and strategy to help achieve them. When thinking strategy, it is helpful to look from two perspectives - the companies and also, from the perspective of your attendees. How will both the planning team and the attendee realize their individual goals?
The strategy might involve some mini-goals so ideally, map out a plan either in outline or as a more detailed project plan.
No two events are the same. Some events lend themselves to making connections and not necessarily delivering content. For other events, the goal is to teach attendees. In cases like these, think about what attendees are learning, why, and what you want to teach them? With these answers you can then start to build out the essential items like speakers and content, ensuring that you are selecting the right content for the defined target audience.
Once you determine your overall event goals and objectives, all other planning seem to just be pieces to the puzzle. Your event budget, theme, speakers, and entertainment each have a place and will ultimately aid commonality with your given goals.
