Planning is the key to any successful holiday event. Sometimes, planning multiple months in advance is needed, especially if there are speakers, catered food, and other things that should be scheduled in advance. To ensure you feature the best at your event, start planning early.

Make a timeline and stick with it. If you are going to take a four to six month time period to plan, be sure to include every aspect of the overall organizing and planning into the timeline. Make sure you give yourself enough time to coordinate, schedule, and invite people to come.

In your planning, it’s important to consider where you’ll host the event. Will you rent a venue or have it at your place of business? Whatever you choose, make sure it’s large enough and won’t be difficult to find for those hoping to attend.

Take time to consider a budget and how you’re going to finance it. The overall conference doesn’t have to be expensive, but there will be costs involved. Within your budget, you’ll want to think about a venue again. This could account for a large part of your budget. The catering costs could also be a large factor. Be sure to network and ask for sponsors if you feel comfortable doing so. That way, you’ll may have donations to work within your budget.

What kind of theme will you have? Will you serve a meal, appetizers and drinks, or desserts? All of these details should be sorted and organized as soon as possible. The more details you have in place, the better response you’ll have when you begin to invite others to your event.

When will you host your holiday recruiting event? Your recruiting conference should have a set time and date long before you begin advertising it. Be sure to choose a date and time that doesn’t coincide with any holidays or other major events in the area.

Plan for volunteers to help you the day of the event. If you’re not sure you’ll have enough by using your own recruiters and staff, find others in the industry that might be interested in helping you!

Once you’ve set the date and time, theme, and decided on other details, you can begin to think about marketing your event! We will cover that in our next blog.

Waiting until the last minute to iron out the details of this event will be stressful and overwhelming. It’s important to start planning early so that when the time comes you can focus on getting the word out about your holiday recruiting event.
