So it’s time to plan your event. Whether you’re seasoned in event planning or it’s your first rodeo (editor’s note: if your first event management undertaking is an actual rodeo, please accept our heartfelt sympathies), you’ll need to spend some time building a foundation of knowledge about the event. Why is this so important? Ultimately, events are typically a one-shot deal. There’s a lot of pressure to get it right and you only have one opportunity to do it.
