Not in CA! – this phrase has been heard at least once by everyone who has ever encountered advertising and failed. And this is also point number 1 in all marketing and event classes – you need to clearly understand the target audience of your event. Start by defining the target audience, and everything will become easier and clearer with all the other points. We need a list! You will plan a large-scale event definitely brag about your incredible memory later in the circle of friends, and to prepare the event you definitely need a notebook (for example, in electronic form). In the list, you should reflect everything that is required for the event: from lighting and transport to napkins and paper in the printer.
