Planning as such is a part and parcel of our life, but event planning is a different ball game because event planning is all about taking care of every single detail which starts from concept and ends at eventís grand finale. Only undivided attention from you as an event planner will make your event a success story. As a planner you have to take care of the venue, create invitations and guest lists, catering, transportation, gifts, in fact the list is quite long and unending. Hence, it makes sense to hire an event planner and coordinator.
The basic objective of the event planner is to know the purpose of the event and as a planner what they can contribute in to it. Always remember they closely work with their clients, which means you will be in the loop throughout. They work in a highly organized and systematic way. As a planner they make it a point to understand the complete requirements of the clients and discuss everything in detail, like; location, dates, purpose of the event, number of guests, what about the transportation, catering, gifts, and lodging etc. In fact the success of the events entirely depends upon the planner.
This is why while hiring someone, make sure that he/ she should posses certain qualities like; cool, calm and collected under pressure, has a fine sense of timing and budget management and the most important thing he/she should understand the true meaning of deadline. Generally people claim that they are the best in the business, but it makes sense to cross check the facts. In fact event management companies are all over the place, which means finding an event planner is not an issue. The real issue is whether he/she is capable of pulling it or not, hence cross checking the facts makes sense.
A seasoned event planner generally also works as a coordinator. But the basic difference between a planner and coordinator is that as an event coordinator, it is their duty to see to it that the event is going according to the plan. In another word, they are the people who ultimately make your event a success story. Only correct and detailed planning is nothing, if it is not well coordinated. This is the reason why events coordinator is in demand. Events coordinator is also famous for fixing things at the last moment and the beauty is that nobody will notice it. In a nutshell event planner is the guy who will be doing the most of the planning and on the other hand event coordinator is the executor of the plan.
