Discover how to plan a successful event this summer!

It’s officially summertime, which means Washington, D.C. will be full of rooftop parties and late night events. Planning a successful event in a densely populated city like Washington, D.C. requires ample preparation. Whether you’re organizing an office event or an engagement party, discover how to get started with the following tips.

Set an Objective

Before you start researching venues, set an objective for your event. This may be the easiest step, especially if the objective is already clear. However, if you want to throw a party but don’t have a specific reason, determine a goal before continuing with the party-planning process.

Choose a Theme

Deciding on a theme can help you determine where the event will take place and other important factors like food and entertainment. For example, a bar might be the perfect place for your birthday party, but your corporate event might be more successful in a restaurant or upscale venue.  

Select a Location

Once you’ve settled on the goal and theme of your event, you can start consulting with venues. Narrow your selection down to a select few, and choose the venue that will work best for your guests. Read online reviews and ask for references. Discuss your plans with the private events manager and ensure that they are able to accommodate all of your needs.
