Small-scale meetings are becoming popular because of their flexibility and ability to bring people closer. Sometimes they happen as standalone events but can also be a series of events.
With 50 to 100 people, these events need small venues and don’t cost much. Still, you’ll need a proper checklist detailing your plan to gain the most out of small meetings.
What should be in a planning checklist for a small scale meeting? Let’s find out.
What Should be in the Planning Checklist of a Small Meeting?
Your checklist should include the following:
1. Goals and Objectives
Before planning anything, start by defining the reason for hosting the event. A specific goal will help you determine:
- Target audience
- What they’ll gain from the meeting
- How the meeting will benefit your business
2. Event’s Venue
While finding a venue for a small meeting is easy, early booking avoids clashing with other events. Set a specific date and ensure the room can accommodate the maximum number of people you expect. Also, ask about the policies, on-site AV, and parking.
Your budget should cover all costs attributable to the event. It should include the cost of:
- Room rentals
- Food and drinks
- Speaker fees
4. Event’s Theme
Having a theme and design sets up the mood for your event. The goal of your event should guide you in creating a theme that matches your attendees’ expectations.
- Do you want a formal or informal design?
- What color and decor match the event?
5. Marketing Strategy
Promoting your event attracts your target audience and opens an engagement rapport. In your plan, consider a promotional strategy either on social media or on your blog.
