Events are born under many circumstances. An event can be centered on a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, or wedding celebration. A fashion show, music concert, or art show can become an event. In the business world, entertaining clients, recruiting new employees, and holiday celebrations can all constitute events. But all events are not created equal. Each individual function will need different time commitments to plan and execute. Whatever the cause for the event, care needs to be taken in the planning stages.
