Event Starter Guide 2017

Introduction

The Event Starter Guide has been prepared to assist people from the community to navigate their way through some of the many issues involved in organising an event. In particular, those people organising public, outdoor events in New South Wales should find the guide helpful.

Events are an important part of community life and contributing to a safe and successful event is a rewarding experience. However, organising an event can seem a daunting task for someone with little experience in this area. To ensure the success, smooth running and safety of an event, organisers must undertake careful planning and preparation and this can be quite a complex process.

This guide has been prepared to assist people from the community to navigate their way through some of the many issues involved in organising an event. In particular, those people organising public, outdoor events in New South Wales should find the guide helpful.

It should be noted that this guide is only a starting point for event organisers. It is not a manual showing you how to organise an event—it simply outlines some of the issues you may need to address and tells you where to go for further information. In addition to using this guide, it is important to seek advice from qualified professionals.

The guide has been divided into sections to allow you to choose the information that is relevant to the event you are organising. There is also a resources list at the end of the guide.
