How To Put On A Cracking Student Event

Nov. 16, 2017

When it comes to making an event that will be the talk of an entire student body, there’s no room for the mundane and average. The bold, innovative and exciting are the things which are going to get a response, which is why the student event you plan needs to be as wild and whacky as possible. We’re going to be looking at how to put on a show-stopping activity and create something which gets everyone talking.

Step One - Brainstorm

The first step you’ll need to take for this event is to come up with some ideas of the kind of direction you want to take with this venture. You could host a May Ball, or a Summer Fun Fest; the idea being that whatever you do host has an infectious enthusiasm which your attendees will love.

What would you want if you were one the students you’re trying to attract? Would you want a nice and proper ball with music, dancing and frivolities, or would you want a wild festival where everyone’s letting loose and doing all the crazy things young people do? Putting yourself in the mindset of the people you’re trying to appeal to is vital for making sure that you’re coming up with applicable ideas and choices for the event.

Step Two - Implementation

Now that you’ve come up with a few ideas as to what you’re going to do with your event, it’s time to put them into action. Spread the word like wildfire, making it one of the most hotly anticipated events of the term. Make sure as many people know as possible. You can accomplish this with informative yet eye-catching posters, putting announcements into the circular that goes around the campus if you can. People will soon be interested, and this can be further amplified by using social media. Make an event or a page, and share it around, get as much reach as possible.

As well as all of this, you’ll need to make sure that there’s a suitable way for people to buy tickets, and you’ll need to manage the flow of tickets as well. A platform such as Bookitbee is a good idea in this instance, as you’ll find that it is straightforward to manage the inflow of tickets and attendees and that people can buy them without any issues.

Overall, the key to planning a student event which gets everyone talking is innovation and then a decisive approach to implementing it. You need to be firm and bold with your ideas, getting them as far out into the public as you can. If you want an event for the student body which will get everyone excited, then appeal to what as many people want as possible. Whatever you do, try and put a unique spin on it, something which hasn’t been done before; it’ll help with appealing to as many people as possible and making everyone stop and talk about it.
