All of those involved must have commitment to the group, share similar visions for the projects and strive for overall success.
2. Create idea and concept: Idea and concept are the two main parts for planning an event. Event is like a team project. Each and every person have their different ideas and concept.
Once you come up with an event ides, remember to be flexible. Leave yourself some room for modification and development of the idea.

Promotion is a necessity for any event as the means of informing interested people that an event will take place. Promotion requires a focused application of organization. Promoting an event through social media is the best way to attract people for an event.
5. Find sponsors and establish a budget: Seeking corporate sponsors to fund a portion of the event. This can range from national organizations that might want to sponsor a dinner, offer a door prize or a key silent auction item, to local businesses that might be able to provide goods or services, such as flowers for the tables, gift bag items, etc.
You should develop a budget because by creating a budget, you should have all the details and it should be specific. You need to consider each and every aspect of the event and how much money you are going to spend on each aspect.
