And those mistakes could cost you your reputation and maybe even the big promotion you were looking for if you’re not on top of every detail.

Here are the most common mistakes made – and the solutions – to help avoid such problems:

  • Failing to identify meeting objectives. Define your objectives Be sure to know one hundred percent what your management expects from this event. Examples: education, recruiting, awards presentations, new product roll-out, executive installation, etc.
  • Failing to budget properly. Many planners make this mistake by overlooking some very costly items.
  • Failing to have a plan. This is probably the most common error that hurts an event. Many planners try to run a catering event without a plan and detailed checklist – missing important details that could make or break the event. Lighting, seating, room temperature, music, decorations, audio/visual, and location of the bathrooms and telephones are just some of the details that are often forgotten.
  • Failing to select the right facility. It’s location, location, location! Depending on the locale of your and the Edwards Scott House is the perfect location in Lancaster, South Carolina.
  • Failing to work out who should be coming and how to reach them. Secure your entire list before securing your date in writing. Be sure your list has all names, titles, mailing addresses, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses. Your attendees can’t register if you can’t reach them.
  • Failing to secure confirmation. Here’s where you can really run into trouble. Do NOT promote your event without
  • Failing to allow everyone to know months before the event. Once you’ve created your marketing plan, stick to it!

Once your event is booked it’s critical all of your marketing contacts go as planned. Remember to use every means to reach your attendees.

One method alone doesn’t reach everyone because we are all different.

    I like your tip to have a plan for your corporate event. There’s a lot more to such a meeting than gathering a bunch of people in a room and talking to them. Ignoring seemingly minor details like bathroom location and room temperature can cause discomfort to guests. I’m surprised you included decorations as something often forgotten in corporate events, since it is one of the first things people notice, but it’s definitely a good thing to keep in mind. Thanks for the tips.
