Event planning guide

Cairns Regional Council is committed to developing and supporting events that provide entertainment and leisure opportunities for the whole community to enjoy. An important aspect of organising an event is the responsibility of the event organiser to ensure that their event is safe and successful.

This is not a complete guide for everything to do with events, instead, we are providing an overview of the stages of an event and the considerations event organisers need to address, mainly from Council’s point of view.

Stages of an event

1. Plan / coordinate

Planning is the most important part of running a successful event. Event management planning includes all activities and issues associated with the event and how you are going to plan for them.  You can read more about each of these planning considerations by working through the sections of this guide.

2. Marketing and promotions

3. Review
