Another main principle is flexibility. When an event whose entire strategy hinges on one single arrangement, that could end up not working out, the event can turn out to be a disaster. Thinking about how to pivot and salvage an event when an critical part has fallen through should therefore always be important, as well.
The third principle we want to point out is to see the event through the eyes of guests. This, can be seen as nother important part of the two former principles, with the shift in perspective contributing every bit as much of value. With these three basic ideas in mind, novice event planners can expect to develop plenty of related principles of their own.
