Fall is a great time to host events. It’s not too hot, not too cold, and if you’re somewhere like New York, the changing leaves are breathtaking. Planning is also considerably easier for #EventProfs because they don’t have to account for summer vacations and weekend getaways. Life goes back to normal and getting guests to commit in advance once again possible. Here are the four best reasons to take advantage of autumn and organize some awesome events.
Unless you plan on trick-or-treating with your cousin in elementary school, there is only one move for Halloween: a party. Don’t wait until the last second to put something together. Start thinking about who you want to attend and your ideal venue, not to mention prizes for a killer costume competition. The options for Halloween themed food and drinks are endless. Make sure you have plenty of time to spend testing them out by creating your event on SquadUP ahead of time.
I’m sorry to say that if you’re not in the northeast tri-state area, this one doesn’t apply. If you are, you’re in luck! The Hunt is a fall horse race in Far Hills, NJ. It’s the perfect opportunity to break out that new flannel-vest combination you’ve been wanting to wear. If you don’t care about horse racing, don’t worry, neither does anybody else. You may not even see one. This event is a giant tailgate party. Instead of worrying about transportation, reserving plots, buying tickets, booze, food, music, games, and more, let SquadUP handle all that for you. Just get a solid group of friends together and buy your tickets before prices go up.
Non-profit event planners don’t want to miss out on Giving Tuesday. America has a day for giving thanks and even two for getting shopping deals. Now we have #GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. Plan an event for your charity and take advantage of the growing support Giving Tuesday.
Any good #EventProf knows that Holiday Party planning takes place well before the holidays. Whether we’re talking about an office party, a secret-santa-exchange, seder, or a giant blow-out event, it’s time to start thinking about logistics. Create your event on SquadUP so you can spend your time on the fun parts, like perfecting your playlist and finding the ugliest of all the ugly sweaters.
