Different Type of Events

Thinking of going into and dreaming of organizing your first event? You will first have to decide how familiar you are with event organizing.

What type of events organizing field you would like to be involved in?

Have you done it before and did you enjoy doing it?

What is actually event planning and which category you would like to be involved in?

Things to consider before deciding

Deciding on the category of events that you would like to delve into, you would need to know your experience level.

You would have to distinguish your area of speciality.

You would also have to consider the business prospect of the event type you are considering and is it in demand.

Once you have that worked out, focus on a particular core competency.

Decide on what you can or cannot do and will you have the supporting team to manage what you are not able to do.


Type of events

Event planning is basically using your creativity and interpersonal skills to organize occasions for a specific purpose or celebration and at the same time provide a service for a fee.

It is both exciting and yet can be a hectic business as everything will be based on a dateline.

To help you along, here are some possible categories of events that you can consider specializing in:

  • Bridal events

    To organize weddings and bridal showers.

    It requires skills in venue setups, arranging dinners, lunches or tea as well as floral, gift and dealing with a guest list.

    You would have to be creative in venue design, floral arrangements, colour co-ordinating, music selection and have a knack for knowing what would make the occasion a truly memorable one for the wedded couple and guest.

    This is a once in a lifetime occasion for them!


  • Educational conferencing

    Arranging seminars, online webinars, debates and forums.

    This is a highly specialized field as it can involve international guest speakers and attendees depending on the size of the event.

    You would have to know how to arrange presentation materials, handle international or high ranking officials (their protocols).

    Knowledge about how conferencing events are organized as some of the larger events may require more complicated setups that involve hotel accommodation arrangements, transport and par services for the spouses or their delegation.


  • Commemorative events

    Public events for promotions of civil or non-government persons or even memorials.

    If it is a celebratory event, you will need skills in theme planning, entertainment and catering.

    On the other hand, if it is a memorial, you would have to be familiar with ethnic customs and have a special touch of sympathetic skills to lessen the burden of loss for the bereaved.


  • Product launch events

    Normally are big events organized for the launching of new products or services.

    You will require exceptional task management skills, good theme and colour sense, an eye for detail into co-ordination, people skills as well as good marketing knowledge.

    This is one of the most lucrative events to hold and also the most complicated and stressful.

    You will require a really cool and level head to manage the number of people under you, not to mention the client and the attendees for the event!


So now that you have more or less an idea of the type of events you want to be involved in, how do you go about planning your start-off to become a successful event organizer?
