"For event planners, there's no such thing as a dress rehearsal!"
- by Judy Allen



Snowflake Ball 2006


Event Planning is a community for people who organize events, whether professionally (nonprofit/corporate) or socially...or for those just looking for a little bit of inspiration!

Event planners are detailed multi-taskers – if you watch the Apprentice TV show, there’s no wonder why the two final tasks of each series are always planning events!!! Event Planners organize and track THOUSANDS of details, including venues, logistics, music, food, invites, printing, party favors, etc., etc.

So this is the perfect community if you are responsible for producing any of the following (but certainly not excluded to!):

• Corporate and Sporting Events
• Fundraising Galas
• Successful Meetings, Conferences and Trade Shows
• Marketing and Sale launches
• Proms and Formals
• Award and Fashion Shows
• Book, Craft and Garage Sales
• Dinner Parties
• Bridal, Bachelorette and Baby Showers
• Weddings and Other Social Gatherings</font>

To ensure the success of the community and respect of all members, please adhere to the following rules.

1. PLEASE KEEP ALL POSTS ON TOPIC.
