ORGANISING AN EVENT - February 16th, 2006

An one-off event - like a vigil, demo, or petition - can help develop your campaign
Whether it's a conference, a demo, fundraising event or vigil, a one-off event can be extremely useful to your campaign.

The benefits...
Organising an event can help you to :

attract lots of new supporters

it can attract high-profile support from local celebrities or politicians

it can publicise your campaign by attracting media coverage

it can embarrass the organisation that you're trying to influence.
There are however, several things you need to think about if you're planning to do a one-off event. These include the following:

it takes time and effort to organise

it can be expensive

if it's outside, it can be affected by bad weather

people may not turn up and you can feel as if you have wasted your time

you could get bad publicity if things go wrong.
Whatever you decide to do, you are unlikely to be doing it very often so you need to get it right first time.

Planning for an event
There are some things that are common to organising any event. Ask yourself these questions before you go any further.

1. What is the event for? Who are the people you want to reach? What will the event achieve and how will you know if it is a success?


2. What needs to be done and who will pay for it? Work out everything that you have to do to run the event. Who will write the leaflets? Will you need a street stall? Then think about how you will fund it. How much will the venue cost? Do you know anyone that could fund the whole thing? Who will apply for police permission if you need it? Will you want to collect donations on the day?


3. Who will organise the event? How many people do you have and who is good at what? How can you share things out? How often will you meet to check progress? If you're doing anything public, you will need one person to be in charge on the day, who will be visible and make any necessary decisions. This is absolutely vital if you're doing anything that will involve police liaison.


4. How will you make sure people know about your event? Run through all the possible ways in which you could get publicity - posters, leaflets, word of mouth, email. Make sure that the publicity goes out in good time. For more publicity tips, click here.

5. How will you make people care?
You already think your campaign is important but how can you make other people think so too? How can you make sure people relate to the issue and how it affects them.
