What To Consider When Setting a Date For Your Next Event

Are you hosting an event such as a birthday party, corporate training, wedding, or something else? You might think picking a date is just a matter of looking at a calendar. However, if you want people to attend your event, you need to be intentional about setting the date. Ask yourself the following questions before you settle on the perfect date:

  • How much time do I need to prepare for the event?
  • Will my guests be coming from out of town? If so, how much travel time do they need?
  • Are there weather changes that could make hosting an outside event difficult?
  • Is there a competing event in the area the same day I want to host my event?
  • If the event will have speakers, presenters, or vendors, are these individuals available on that date?
  • Are there any federal holidays or state holidays that could affect the availability of the event venue?
  • What is my budget? Dates around holidays and weekends can be pricier than other times of the year.
