Planning an event for your company, club, charity group, or family?

Learn the secrets of the pros.

No matter what the scale, budget or occasion, event planning can be an immense challenge. There's a reason why companies often hire outside specialists to handle the task. These specialists know what they're doing. But there's no reason you can't use the proven secrets of professionals to plan your own successful events.

Written by Paulette Wolf and Jodi Wolf--the industry's top leaders in corporate event production--this simple comprehensive guide takes you through every step of the party-planning process, from early conceptualization, sourcing and contracting, to last-minute details and follow-ups. By taking advantage of their years of experience, you can easily sidestep stress, balance the budget, anticipate problems--and create a smoothly run event that makes a positive, lasting impression. These time-tested tricks of the trade will help you to:

  • Choose the right venue at the best price
  • Create an organized event book
  • Develop an ideal menu and theme
  • Book entertainment, staff, and caterers
  • Manage behind-the-scenes operations and security
  • Make every event a smashing success

Event Planning Made Easy takes the guesswork out of party organization--so you have more time to focus on the creative and social aspects of the job. The book even includes all the fill-in sheets and forms you'll need to keep track of everything. Event production may be work, but when you know the secrets of the pros, you'll be surprised at how fun and rewarding it can be.
