Event Planning Manual - Under Development

Marketing an event is often times the most challenging part of the event planning process. However it also creates a lot of opportunities to communicate your organizations vision.

Step 1: Event Summary & Details

Before advertising an event, several prerequisites must be fulfilled by the planning team.

  • Event Summary - write 2 paragraphs or about 170 words to describe the event.

Example: The strategic manipulation of information has become a powerful political tool for creating confusion in healthy countries. The erosion of trust between citizens, communities and nation-states threatens global peace and security in the 21st century. It is our responsibility as Data+Scientists to inoculate society from this threat by deploying intelligent algorithms which identify and tag troll comments | profiles. The Machine Learning Society and the CO Science & Tech Social Network are currently designing a Hackathon which aims to restore trust on the internet.

  • Artwork - A cool image allows you to visualize the event and helps your audience do the same. Contact Tristen@MLsociety.com for art.
  • Venue - Finding a venue is difficult without a semi-formed event structure and interested speakers / attendees. Use this venue template to help book a location.

Impressions

The number of impressions that you make is directly correlated with how many people will know about the event and RSVP for it.

Broadcasting on Social Media & Event Managers

Crowdsourcing RSVPs

Cross-promotion

  • All upcoming Events should be posted on several platforms for maximum exposure.

Meetup

  • Eventbrite
  • Facebook (through eventbrite integration)
  • Twitter
  • CO Chapter Page.
