  • Avoid These 3 Mistakes When Planning Your Corporate Events

Your event planning team surely wants the best for your organization but might be making these mistakes without even realizing it, hence hindering the success of your organisations’ corporate  events.

DOXA Digital would like to share with you 3 mistakes to avoid when planning for your next corporate events.

Let’s dive in.

1.Taking Your Goal Wrong

No matter how big or small, every event needs to have a clear, attainable objective. It is not sufficient to just outline a goal and then hope everything works itself out because this could lead to needless delays. Nonetheless, every stakeholder needs to be aware of and supportive of this objective. Creating a feedback loop where team members can independently verify their comprehension and contributions can help you do this. 

To forestall this therefore, arrange a presentation meeting or a scripting conference that can be held virtually or in person.

2. Targeting the Wrong Audience

Audiences, guests, markets, and prospects are key factors to consider when putting together a corporate event. Targeting the wrong people can lead to frustration and wasted resources. 

To avoid this mistake, identify and understand your audience. A simple audience analysis can help a lot. For instance, it will expose who they are, what they like, how they behave, and where they spend their time. If needed, seek expert help to pinpoint your audience accurately.

3. Copying Your Competitors

In today’s interconnected world of globalisation, it’s easy to see what your competitors are doing. However, learning from them is great but copying them might not be the best. Imitation dilutes your unique identity and strengthens your competitor’s position.

 Instead, focus on showcasing your brand’s unique strengths and values. The image you create in your audience’s minds should be distinct and authentic. No matter how small your organisation may be, you may never have a second opportunity to make a lasting first impression.

Bonus Tip: Never Walk Alone

Globalization allows organizations to focus on their core strengths while leveraging the expertise of others. Forming partnerships can help you achieve your goals more efficiently. For instance, DOXA Digital Nigeria collaborates with other upcoming event managers  to develop their capacities and offer exposures that ordinarily will not come cheap.. 

For your next event, find partners who can deliver on promises, allowing you to concentrate on your core competencies.


Avoiding these common mistakes will help you plan successful events that achieve your goals. Remember to set clear goals, target the right audience, maintain your unique identity, and leverage strategic partnerships.
