For Event Planners, Taking Care of Logistics Means:

Exceptional

Timing and Coordination

(ETC)


Choosing a date:

  • Adequate lead time is usually + 6 weeks for most logistical needs.

  • Try to avoid religious observances.

  • Check campus calendars :

    • Academic calendar

    • Campus events

    • Student events

    • Performances

    • Athletic events

    • Holidays


Choosing a time:

  • Will the event interfere with classes?

  • Will invitees get caught in traffic?

  • Does it coincide with a meal time?

    (if so “light snacks” may become a meal)

  • Does it need daylight to occur and remain safe for attendees?


Choosing a location:

  • Check with Campus Reservations:

    http://www.union.umd.edu/reservations/

  • Don’t assume who “owns” the space!

    (Get your reservation in writing)

  • Is the size adequate for the #’s you expect?


Is it a safe location for what you plan to do?

Is it accessible:

to delivery and service personnel?

to people with disabilities?

to people with mobility limitations?

Ie: “Frail Folk”
