When Should I Plan My Event?

The golden rule is simple: the earlier you start planning, the better.

 

  • For example, if you want to organize an event in September, you should start contacting event agencies in May!
  • Generally, you should always make a request to an agency at least 2 to 3 months before the event.
  • The best times to hold your events? The end of the year and late spring… just before summer!

 

To help you better understand the event calendar, we offer a summary table that explains when you should start planning based on the month you intend to hold your event.

The Importance of Anticipating Your Requests 

In event planning, deadlines are not mere guidelines but crucial elements for the success of your event. By paying special attention to time management and anticipating your needs, you increase your chances of creating an event that people will remember.

First of all, as clients, it is important to anticipate your requests to limit expenses. Procrastination has a cost, and in event planning, this cost can be quite high. The longer you wait to submit your brief and provide your directives, the more expensive and complex the process becomes.

Additionally, the longer you delay contacting an agency, the fewer venues and suppliers will be available for your event. It will also become more challenging to achieve your objectives. The best venues are often booked months or even years in advance. Similarly, the schedules of the most qualified service providers fill up very quickly.

By planning ahead, you will have the opportunity to negotiate better rates and enjoy a wider selection of available options.

 

In short, anticipating your needs and acting accordingly is the key to ensuring that your event runs smoothly and meets your expectations and those of your guests!

The Role of the Event Agency

Finally, planning in advance also shows consideration for the agency you are contacting.

By understanding the importance of deadlines, you allow the agency to work properly and provide you with a quality event. A reasonable timeframe gives the agency team the necessary time to find the best suppliers, the best venues, design creative concepts, and go above and beyond to satisfy you.

Moreover, it is important to account for the time required to sign contracts, which can sometimes take several months! Negotiations, adjustments, and administrative formalities can take a lot of time, especially if multiple parties are involved.
