About Booking Event Planners

Professional event coordinators and planners can bring ease to planning the intricate details of any event. Whether you're hosting a small intimate dinner party, week-long conference, corporate holiday party, or sweet sixteenth birthday, GigSalad will connect you with local event planners to successfully coordinate the details of your next event.

There are a few things you should keep in mind when hiring an event planner. First, you want to find an event planner who can see your vision and knows your style. Some planners will be able to throw a fabulous party, but it may not be what you have in mind. Interview three to five planners. Choose one who best demonstrates the knowledge of what you want for the event with your budget. Next, make a list of the areas you want the event planner to handle. Events can have several components including but not limited to booking audiovisual equipment, planning meals, arranging decorations, providing transportation, finding music, managing the guest list, and booking hotels. Last, book a professional within your budget. Do they charge by the hour or on a percentage of the total budget? Also, it is good to find out if they are a Certified Meeting Planner (CMP).
