How to plan and run an event in London
Planning and running a successful business event, meeting, or conference requires careful planning and attention to detail. Whether it’s a small team meeting or a large-scale conference, here are a few key steps to help you plan and execute a successful event in London. If you’re looking for a more detailed guide on managing a successful event this year, check out our full event management guide here.
Planning the Event
The first step is to determine the purpose of the event, the target audience, and your budget. Setting goals and objectives for the event, as well as developing a timeline for planning and executing it. Determine the size of the event and the number of delegates, the location, and the type of venue you’re going to need. For example, is your event a larger conference, a small meeting or an evening drinks party.
Choose a Location for the Event
When selecting a location for the event, consider the proximity to the target audience, accessibility, and the availability of parking or public transport. Meeting spaces in Farringdon are the ideal choice, surrounded by a vibrant atmosphere, public transport links and a wealth of London history. Our Smithfield venue has a range of different sized rooms providing adequate space for events of all sizes, as well as providing essential facilities, such as audio-visual equipment, seating, and restrooms.
Advertise the Event
Advertise the event through various channels, such as email invitations, social media, and online ads. If you’re selling tickets for your event, look at utilising professional event management software to manage registrations and ticket sales. A lot of the time, our delegates and clients use our Smithfield venue as an extension of their own office, so advertising isn’t always a priority.
However, with the increasing popularity of hybrid and remote working, many businesses are cutting back or even letting go of a physical office space entirely. Our venues offer an ideal solution for quarterly meetings or annual conferences for businesses whose staff are spread across London or the country.
Plan the Event Catering
Food and beverages are an essential part of any business event. You’ll need to plan the catering menu based on your budget, attendees, and event duration. Luckily, we have an award winning in-house catering team, well-versed in cooking delicious, restaurant-quality food for a range of events.
Consider our day delegate package, which includes the room with food and drinks to keep your guests feeling productive. We’ll consider dietary restrictions and preferences, work to your budget and provide enough fayre for everyone there. Our catering guarantees that the food at your event will be fresh, tasty, and visually appealing.
Managing the Event on the Day
On the day of the event, we’ll ensure that everything is set up and ready to go. Your venue manager will check that all equipment is in good working condition, and that the venue is clean and well-prepared, they’ll be your designated point of contact and can help with any last-minute changes or issues. We’ll be there during the event and ensure that everything runs smoothly, ensuring that attendees have a positive experience.
In conclusion, planning and running a business event in London requires careful attention to detail and a focus on delivering a high-quality experience for attendees. By following these five key steps, you can ensure that your event is successful, engaging, and memorable.
