Special Events


“Event planning is like performing a high-wire act without a safety net,” reads the jacket of Judy Allen's newest book. “Once your event starts, there are no second chances.” “The Business of Event Planning” goes behind the scenes of events large and small to offer more than 300 pages of practical advice for foolproof planning. Allen, who previously wrote “Event Planning: The Ultimate Guide to Successful Meetings, Corporate Events, Fundraising Galas, Conferences, Conventions, Incentives and Other Special Events,” covers proposals, contracts, fees, design and technology among other subjects, peppering her pages with boldface tips for troubleshooting potential problems.
