Event Planning


Event CAD planning. 

Event planners can often spend hours researching whether or not a venue will be suitable for their needs.
By providing event visualisation, you can deliver on the event experience, plan events faster, easier and more accurately.
It’s now more important than ever to deliver an exceptional personalised experience to your potential customer — no matter if it’s a simple board meeting or an elaborate wedding. 
An event CAD can be compared to sheet music that everyone is singing from. You, your team, your client, the venue and the fire marshal will all be on the same page


Whether organizing a small meeting or orchestrating a large conference, event planning is a huge task! Every event, no matter how simple or complex, requires detailed planning and organization. From establishing an accurate budget to promoting your event, there are a number of components you should start to consider early on to make the process as stress-free as possible.

While no two events are the same, and every event has varying goals, budgets, and audiences; there are several steps you can take to jump-start the planning process, keep on track, and maximize your event’s success. 

Gone are the days of drawing by hand and having to “pin” images together to present your vision to your clients!

Social Distancing!


The events and hospitality industries are understandably eager to resume organizing in-person gatherings, and some venues are already working hard on making that happen as soon as possible. 

If successful, this event could lead to others. However, social distancing will force venues to operate at an estimated 20-40% capacity, and the cost of implementing a socially distant event could be prohibitively expensive. So, in saying that, in order to justify operating at such a low capacity, traditional business models will have to change. 

At big, busy events, the halls can be like trying to walk a block at the New Orleans Mardi Gras. Walking 100 meters through the throng of revellers can take an hour. It’s jam-packed…….. now, how does 2020 and COVID impact this scenario.

Lesson 102a


Prepare a plan using any layout of your choice. You are an event planner, and have been tasked to create 3 x function layouts using three different venues.

Clients require a new, custom floorplan for their event but would like to see it before the event to make sure it works the way they would like.

When an event floor plan is designed well, guests don’t notice. Their focus is exactly where it should be—on enjoying the wedding celebration, university awards reception, or fundraising gala they’re attending.

But when event floor plans are designed poorly—it’s all guests notice. Attendees are cramped, uncomfortable, confused, or a bit lost. Guests may have trouble reaching their seats, get boxed in, or even feel exasperated because they can’t see the festivities or the guest speaker.


This event is of your choice, dinner, large birthday, cocktail or a wedding.
The choice is yours, social distancing is NOT required for this event, although ensure tables don’t overlap.
