Find the Right Location

Depending on the type of event and the number of people you expect to attend, the location that you choose can vary from a small indoor hallto a huge outdoor site. For festivals, for example, you will need a large venue or outdoor space. For a conference you might want to stick to an indoor venue as this can be more desirable.

The venue can make or break your event, so this will almost certainly be the first consideration you want to nail down.

Decide on the Catering

If you’re planning to provide any kind of catering at your event then the food and drink will probably be the second thing you consider after the venue.

Whether it’s silver service dining for your high-end awards ceremony, or food trucks and catering vans for your local music festival, it’s a good idea to ensure the catering complements the nature of your event.

Determine the Numbers

When you have decided on the type of event that you want to run and where you will host it, you will be able to decide how many people you will be able to have at the event.

When you’ve determined the maximum amount of people that you can have at the event, you will be able to start promoting it to gauge interest and estimate expected attendance numbers.

Consider Insurance

Accidents can happen anywhere and everywhere, but if you’re the event organiser there is the risk that you might be held accountable if something goes wrong at your event.

Event insurance can help cover you in these situations, and fortunately you don’t have to buy an annual policy you’re planning a one-off event. The website, for instance, will allow you to compare quotes for one day event insurance from a range of providers, making it more likely that you’ll find the right policy at the right price.

Start Planning Your One Day Event

There’s a lot to consider when planning a one day event, but it’s that word ‘planning’ that will ensure you pull it off without a hitch.
