How to organise a great Trivia or Game show event

  1. Request information. Gather information you need about the event before you start doing any research. Completing this step before moving on will save you a lot of time. Knowing your budget at the start will reduce you wasting time in getting quotes that will not be approved. In addition, group size, location, date and time are important to get accurate quotes
  2. Research. Gathering information and ideas. Venues be expensive, but can make a difference to the success of your event. It is important to get the venue right.
  3. Checklist. Once you have gathered your information and ideas, keep on top of them in a spreadsheet or list. This will ensure that organising the event does not get too stressful for you. Try to have a key decision maker on your committee – it will in turn save a lot of time. In addition, promotion of the event is important to the team building activities’ success. Preparing your audience can make a huge difference to the success or failure of the event. Make sure you leave a little mystery about the event, as people love mystery.
  4. Follow up. The final step is to gather feedback. This can be fantastic guidance for next time. In particular ask what worked well and what didn’t work well. Was everyone able to join in the activity, or did people feel left out? Was the venue appropriate? Did you feel as though it was value for money?

Compile the results as well as if there is anything you would do different next time.
