Mistakes to Avoid When Planning or Hosting an Event
Date: 11 October 2016

Putting together a big event can be very exciting – but it can also be rather stressful. As you might expect, any event production in London worth its stripes needs to be properly planned and given plenty of consideration.

If it’s not, you risk going out with a whimper, rather than a bang. If you are in charge of putting together an event – whether it’s on a small scale or a large scale – here are three elements of the planning process that you must give some careful consideration.


The worst mistake you can make is not sticking to a firm budget. That is why you should have a solid understanding of how much you can and can’t spend from the early stages. It would be extremely unfortunate to blow chunks of the budget on one element of the event, only to later discover that a more important element will suffer as a result.



Time is extremely valuable when you are planning an event. Obviously, it’s possible to put together a memorable night in just a few weeks, but that doesn’t mean you can play fast and loose with your own deadlines. The more you leave things to the last minute, the more you’re playing with fire. While anything could go wrong, the most damaging would be something like an unavailable venue.



There’s one trap that is easy to fall into – and it’s to do with originality. The last thing you want is for your guests to arrive and feel like they’ve ‘been there, done that’. Of course, some familiarity is important, but generally, each event should be individual and special in its own right. It would be a mistake to not put your own touch on an event. Instead, you’ll find the most success by doing things your own way and going in a more bespoke direction.
