Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter, an outside event will always be welcomed by many. The more viruses that lurk around, the more big groups are going to want to meet inside instead of being stuck in one small area. For some events, it’s essential to be outside for space, like sports events for example. Here are some of our top tips to help you plan an outside event and make it successful. If you are planning an event in Thailand, you should consider hiring an event planner in Thailand to help relieve some of the stress. They will assist you in organising everything from the food to the entertainment.

How can I use decoration for my outside event?

If you want your outside event to be successful, you should consider decoration and make sure it’s aesthetically pleasing. Annually events will need to be especially successful the first time around as nobody will want to return to your event next year if it doesn’t look pleasing to the eye. Capture your target audience by using inflatables, if it’s a sports event you can go for inflatable arches. These are ideal for indicating where the start and finish line is if it’s a running event, for example. 

Consider the type of event

The type of event is important to consider as you will approach it in different ways depending on who you are trying to attract. If it’s a children’s birthday party it’s going to be a completely different vibe to a tattoo convention or a work conference. Narrow down the target audience and who you want to attend the event before planning exactly what you need to do. If it’s a work event you will want to go for a more corporate approach and make sure everyone knows it will be held outside. 

What to remember for outside events in autumn and winter

If your event is in the UK, make sure you prepare for any weather. There could possibly be rain and you will regret it if you aren’t prepared. There are options like gazebos and decorative umbrellas you can invest in for the event. If you need a lot of undercover areas, why not hire something? You won’t always need to buy event props outright, hiring is an equally acceptable option. 

Make sure you have a plan and a checklist

Using an excel spreadsheet as a planner can be a great idea if you want to do things online, or perhaps write a plan down if you prefer the old school way. Organisation will all come down to how many guests you will have at your event, the bigger the event the more time you will need to spend on planning. Before the big day you can create a little checklist to have ready in the morning before the event, you can then tick off what you have done. This is crucial to make sure you don’t forget anything before your guests arrive. 

Now you know exactly what to take into consideration when you are planning an outdoor event, it’s time to make a plan and get started. No matter what the season, you can make an outdoor event exciting for everyone attending.
