The Future of Event Planning

February 14, 2024

Within the last 20 years, the event planning industry has seen remarkable growth. With the advancement of technology and the increasing trend of sharing personal experiences, the way events are planned and organized has undergone a significant transformation. As practices modernize, event planners must continue to evolve and adapt.

Future Trends in Event Planning Happening Right Now 

The event planning industry undergoes continuous evolution, with a blend of optimism and uncertainty that challenge even the most experienced planners. Let’s focus on identifying some enduring trends amidst this dynamic landscape. 

Hybrid Events

When event planners had to rethink how to organize and plan important events during the pandemic, they turned to virtual event platforms, webinars, and other connected technology. Post-pandemic, hybrid events have continued to withstand the test of time, and have become even more popular. The hybrid concept adds additional value as event content is often available in the form of documents, presentations, or recordings after the event has taken place, providing event planners ongoing reference and resource materials . 


Smaller and more intimate events have grown in popularity over the past few years. Attendees often have a better experience as the smaller crowds provide better networking opportunities and more one-on-one interactions. These micro-events have served as an effective way to build trust and brand identity while also yielding great ROI, even with limited attendees.

Greater Focus on Health and Safety

Post-pandemic, there has been a greater emphasis on health, hygiene, and safety. From registering to attending the event, planners have seen a greater interest in contactless methods. These new changes include event landing pages, email marketing, apps, and QR codes to meet this new need.
