This is the first and the foremost thing in event management. Even a minor mistake in this may leave a negative impact on the entire event. It is the most complicated part too as you have to plan a lot of things such as event date, an alternative date, venue, transportation, guest list etc. Besides, you should plan in advance for getting necessary permissions and date and time of celebrities if any.

It is better to have spreadsheet with details such as required items, rental costs, transportation costs, catering costs, proposed total estimate etc. This will give a clear idea to the client about the destination up to where he or she can go.
Deciding Event Venues
While deciding on a venue, you should have a detailed talk with the sales team of the venue to find out whether the same will meet all your requirements for the event. It is better to carry a checklist of needs with you while inspecting the venue or while having discussions with the venue staff.

A lot of accessories may need to create the expected mood of the event. Apart from lightings and sound, many minor items such as balloons, caps, paper crafts etc may also be necessary. Similarly, pens, bottled water, scribbling pads etc also may require some time. You should be prepared with a checklist well in advance after a detailed discussion with the client.
This is one of the most important part of any event and this is the area where more number of complaints arises. Here the client can help you in deciding the menu. Menu will change depending on the time of the event and the type of the event. Both the quantity and quality should be taken care here. Nature of the food can be decided on the likes of the client but you should be prepared with the best cooks and supporting staff to serve the food. If you are hiring a catering company to meet this requirement, you should give clear instructions about the quantity, and the time of serving of food.
This is another complicated area in Event Management.Different modes of transportation may require for some events. When the guests are coming from faraway places, even the accommodation also be needed to arrange. Apart from organizing transportation, event managers should organize the facilities for proper parking too.
A professional event manager should take equal care in promoting the event too. Certainly, it is not needed if it is a private event with limited guests. For a public event, promotion is very much needed and a professional event manager should be able to do it effectively. Various media, including the social media should be used for this purpose.
These are the basic needs of an event to be successful. There are many other minor things also involved in making or marring the chances of an event to be successful. A professional event manager should take care of all those things.
