Practical Tips: What do you consider when you plan a date for your event?

Some people think that any day would be the best day for an event. But most are surprised when they do not get the results that they want in terms of attendance. Here are some simple guidelines that might help when you consider doing an event.


The first thing to consider is the size of your event and what type it is.  If it’s a big party or a concert the best day to do it is on a Saturday.  Your target guests will be given enough time to get dressed or be prepped up for your event.  They will also have enough time to consider traffic and their activity for the day.


How about for a Press Conference? Make sure you do not hold a press conference or a press party on a Friday or a Saturday.  It is usually best to do it on a Tuesday or a Wednesday.  Here press people have time and most of them are not rushing for a story.  Traffic will also be minimal, giving them ample time to cover your event.

For Cocktails and small events. The best would be to do it on a Friday, most specially if your crowd is not via personal invitation.  You need to consider, that the guests will be coming from their offices and would probably want to unwind and have a good time with friends and colleagues. And since most people are not working on Saturdays, they can stay up late and enjoy what you have got to offer.

And yeah, if you plan to have more guests, make sure that you plan it during the non-rainy season.

Choosing the day may seem very trivial, but through years of experience, I have found it to be a very important factor in the success of your party or event.

Of course, choosing of the day is only one thing to consider, there are a lot more to consider. Watch out for more tips and techniques.
