I’ve been working on multiple events for a few different clients over the past couple weeks. The anticipation and hard work that goes into planning events is pretty much half of our job description, while the actual event goes by in a flash. The event that I just wrapped up yesterday I have been planning for months, so it’s kind of surreal to know that it’s all over.
This was me and my team yesterday, but in heels
Of course crashing into bed the night after event day isn’t the end of it. Here are a couple things you need to be aware of and work to solve in your post-event depression:
Expect some crazy dreams – After spending all day in an event space and working your butt off, expect some weird work dreams in the nights ahead
Continue to work for your event – Follow up with all attendees and make sure they received all the information they needed at the event. Follow up with any samples, pictures or info
Start your event recap while it’s fresh in your mind – It’s easy to put off talking about the event since you’ve done nothing BUT for the past couple weeks, but write down some great feedback or details while you remember
Think of all the positives – When you next talk to your client, talk up your event! Did you have great attendance? Did you see a new side of the brand you haven’t seen before?
Remember new relationships – Whether it’s a new vendor or editor you never met before, keep track of the new relationships you have
