Planning a party. Not as much fun as, you know, going to the party. That said, with the right event planning strategies, your prep can be—almost—as enjoyable.

To write an event plan, begin by brainstorming event details and ideas. Then, define the scope of your event and nail down practical considerations such as budget, deadlines, and guest list.

Don’t forget to invite your team to the planning party. They’ll gauge your ideas, uncover new directions, and identify holes in your plan.

To plan a successful event, consider the what and the why of the event. What is the occasion—a wedding, launch party, industry-wide conference? Why is it important? Will it build culture? Inspire an exchange of ideas? Promote a product or a brand?

Use your answers as a way to home in on activities, speakers, venues, and more.

The first stage of event planning involves research and design. During this phase, you might focus on tailoring the event to your company or client—incorporating narrative, branding elements, and personal touches into everything from decor to activities.

On the day of the event itself, event planners are normally responsible for logistics coordination—addressing any last-minute changes to the guest list or mix-ups with vendors.

The last stage? The post-mortem. Gather your team (on your free FigJam event planning checklist template or over a well-deserved brunch) and discuss how the event went and what you can do differently for future events. Did you achieve your company’s purpose? What are the key takeaways?
