Let’s take a glimpse inside the mind of a modern event planner. On any given day, they’re likely consumed with thoughts of budgets, guest lists, event size, space requirements, locations, venue options, amenity requirements, contracts, confirmations and, of course, steadily shrinking timelines. Cue the check-lists that never end, and clients’ complete reliance that the meeting, event, or party they’ve imagine will come to life in a few weeks’ time. No pressure, right?

Sure, it might be some of that, but mostly it requires a lot of work, meticulous planning and attention to detail, a collaborative approach, and a little (or a lot) of help from technology. Rewarding? Absolutely. But the modern event landscape, especially with the continued rise of small meetings and corporate events, provides a long list of demands for event planners and venue spaces alike.
