Whether you’re hosting a corporate or social event, it can become stressful even when you have a professional Miami event planner handling venues, travel, accommodations, menus, themes, and other details for you. At Events & Logistics, our goal is to help you feel like a guest at your own event by eliminating the stress and anxiety! We know there is simply no way to completely alleviate all of the stress, but you can reduce it significantly. We have a few tips below that will help you cope in the days and weeks prior to your event!
Make a to-do list that’s manageable. Break your list down into smaller tasks that are easily manageable – and don’t try to do everything in one day. As you mark one task off the list, you’ll feel a little of the stress leaving your body. It will help keep you organized if you group tasks that are related together, and organize them in order of importance. Also be sure to set deadlines so that you don’t find yourself running behind as your event draws nearer. A detailed list will keep you accountable – and ensure you’re not stressed-out when event day arrives.
Make use of today’s technology. The Internet can be a great source of tools to use whether you’re considering online registration, automated reminders, check-ins, or promotion via social media. While social media is an outstanding way to promote your event, be sure your target audience actually uses any platform you are considering (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc.) otherwise you will be wasting your time, and putting undue stress on yourself.
Take care of yourself. Dwelling on your upcoming event every second of the day isn’t good for you physically, or mentally. Eat healthy meals, get in some exercise, stick to a bedtime routine so that you sleep well, and “disconnect” from it every now and then by reading a book, seeing a movie you’ve been wanting to see, or doing anything you find relaxing and enjoyable.
As trusted Miami destination event planning and logistics experts, we know that it isn’t about totally eliminating stress (because there is no way to do it), but managing stress. There is a lot that goes into the planning and execution of any event, whether corporate or social – and there is bound to be a little “hiccup” along the way. At Events & Logistics, our goal is to make your event as perfect as possible, and help eliminate much of the stress you may be under. Give us a call today, and expect a fabulous event!
