Event Planning: learn how to plan a great event

How to write an Event Management Plan and convince your permit officer



Ytterligare information




You have a great idea for an event or festival. But where do you start? What does it actually mean to organise an event for 300 people? Let alone 3,000 people. When I worked as a university lecturer I asked my students to organise a community festival. The ideas were there. The creativity, the performers, the enthusiasm…it was all there. But they still had to talk to the permit and license officer. What do they expect to see from an event planner? Welcome to the workshop Event Planning.

If you want to organise an event or festival you need to submit an Event Management Plan to your license or permit officer. I will teach you what you need to include in your plan.

This 13+ hour workshop is divided in 13 sections in which you will learn everything you need to include in your Event Plan.

In this workshop you will learn about:

  • Planning your event
  • Researching your audience
  • Permits, licenses & festival insurances
  • Health & Safety aspects at events
  • Event marketing and sponsorship
  • Event production
  • Contract & procurement
  • Site survey and site design

The workshop is a combination of tutorialspresentationsexercises and interviews with event and festival professionals. Interviews with event and festival professionals will provide you with fantastic insight into an amazing industry!

What other students say about this workshop

”The course is filled with great details and practical examples from real world. The interviews and the case study are really helpful. Overall, the course has an excellent structure and useful content.” Anna Santiago

”I am an events coordinator and wedding planner. I found this course to be invaluable for organizing and enhancing my already successful businesses. It started out somewhat slow, but quickly moved on to relevant and timely instruction on what needs to be done, how to do it and how to work smarter, not harder. I absolutely loved this course and learned much new information from the instructor on topics I really had never thought about before. Thank you!” Susan Konopik

The benefits of this workshop for you

At the end of the workshop you will understand what is expected of you in order to plan and produce a successful event or festival. You will be able to write an comprehensive Event Management Plan that complies with the rules and regulations set by your local authorities.

This workshop is for you if you are passionate about events and festivals, if you keep dreaming about organizing your own event, and for (aspiring) event producers!


1. Can I contact you if I have a question about the course content?

A. Absolutely! That’s what a tutor is for. You can contact me via Jarno@eventtutor.com. My aim is to respond to your email as quick as possible.

2. Is this event planning workshop only useful if I want to plan a festival?

A. It is useful if you want to plan any type of event. The workshop covers a wide variety of subjects and will benefit any event planner. Truth be told though that I will teach you how to write an Event Management Plan. When you plan a wedding you most likely do not need to submit an event management plan to a license officer. If your event requires permits or licenses, than this workshop is for you!

3. I’ve seen other online courses that are more expensive. Why is this course so cheap?

A. I want to make sure the course is accessible to those who dream about organising their first event. I want to teach them what event planning entails. I do not want my students to be out of pocket.

How much is this workshop?

Only $50! Yes, let that sink in for a moment. 13 hours worth of content, interviews with event industry experts, and 1-to-1 tutorials on request. All of that for only $50.
