What is an Event?
What are the
types of Events?
Event
 An event can be described as a public assembly
for the purpose of celebration, education,
marketing or reunion.
 Something that happens or is regarded as
happening; an occurrence, especially one of some
importance. the outcome, issue, or result of
anything: The venture had no successful event.
something that occurs in a certain place during a
particular interval of time.
Corporate events
 a corporate event is an activity that’s organized by
a business and is intended for employees, clients,
stakeholders, a charity, or the public. The intended
audience usually depends on what the aim of the
event is – for example, to launch a new product or
service, to celebrate the achievements of staff
members, or to demonstrate expertise within a
specific field. Some types of corporate events will
be held quarterly or annually, while others might
be a one-off activity – perhaps to coincide with an
important announcement or to present an award.
1. Seminars
 A seminar is organized
 with a specific target audience in mind and aims
to convey highly relevant information. This type of
event can be held at a community space, your
company headquarters, or even online via a
platform like Zoom or Vimeo. It’s typical for a
single speaker, or a small number of speakers, to
address the audience, so researching speakers
and approaching potential sponsors should be
high on your seminar planning checklist.
2. Conferences
 Conferences tend to be much more complex events
with multiple speakers and sessions across a number
of spaces within one or more venues. With the aim of
encouraging conversations and offering people a
platform to share their expertise, conferences are one
of the most fruitful types of business networking events,
usually beginning with a keynote session before
moving to interviews, roundtables, and panel
discussions. Preparing to welcome your guests can
seem like a huge task, but the Eventbrite Organiser
app can help with contact-free check-in and sales.
3. Trade shows
 Trade shows offer a chance to showcase your
latest product and introduce your brand to
other businesses or the general public. As the
focus is on displaying or
 exhibiting products, trade shows usually take
place in spacious venues with room for lots of
vendors. As a result, they present a great
opportunity to generate sales leads.
4. Workshops
 4. Workshops
 While many business-to-business (B2B) events
will fall into one of the three categories above, it’s
important to consider the value of workshops and
training sessions, too, as they can help
businesses connect with both staff and the public.
Whether you want to bring together employees to
brainstorm ideas or help your target audience to
better understand your product, these types of
corporate events offer the equivalent of a
collaborative classroom where the emphasis is
firmly on learning.
 Social events
 There are plenty of reasons to get a group of
people together away from a business or
workplace environment, be it an anniversary
or a team-building night out. Social events
should speak to people’s personal interests
and tend to revolve around the likes of eating
and entertainment.
1. Reunions
 From a get-together with old classmates to an
event that marks an important anniversary,
reunions are often highly personal occasions. It
can include things like speeches, a DJ playing
songs everyone used to dance to, a slideshow of
old photos – essentially, the event should help
people reminisce. Hiring a photographer and
videographer will help to record the new
memories being made. And if invitees are living in
destinations across the world, making your
reunion a virtual one will give everyone the
opportunity to attend.
 2. Themed parties
 A great event creator will always find an excuse to
celebrate, and hosting a themed party can really
help when it comes to making decisions around
the types of event marketing, decorating, and
catering that you opt for. From intimate gatherings
to larger online events, a creative idea could be
timeless – think Alice in Wonderland,
superheroes, a murder mystery – or align with a
particular date or fun occasion like Eurovision.
 Virtual events
 Virtual events take place online, where attendees
are able to join in from the comfort of their own
homes. A growing (and necessary) event type in
recent times, online events are here to stay as an
ideal way to boost your business. One of the
biggest advantages of online events is the ability
to reach a larger audience, as you’re not restricted
by geography. There are also budgetary benefits
such as not having to pay for venue rental or
catering, along with fewer concerns about physical
accessibility.
 1. Webinars
 A webinar involves an online presentation to a
virtual audience around a specific topic, whether it
be academic, like a historical event, or business-
focused, like a sales masterclass. And there’s
usually time for a handy Q&A at the end. Often,
there’s just one person presenting at a time, which
makes the format especially suited to educational
talks. There are plenty of great platforms for
running a webinar, including Vimeo and YouTube.
 2. Classes
 From twerking to wine tasting, there’s an online
class for almost everything. Extra points to
consider for a virtual class are whether you need
to send out samples (for food or drink tastings), if
your students need any special tools (for a
cookery or pottery class), and how well your
technology works. For example, you may need to
invest in higher-quality audio devices so that
attendees can clearly hear you.
 3. Interactive performances
 Enterprising performers have found new ways to
hold plays and other performances live. Stand-up
comedy gigs can be hosted online, with people
paying extra for a VIP ticket which allows them
access to the virtual audience (and the
opportunity to be “picked on” by the host) while
everyone else watches in safety from a
livestream. Another successful event type is a
virtual murder mystery, with creators offering
online challenges and the audience helping to
solve the crime.
 . Summits
 This collaborative event type is similar to an in-person
conference, except it takes place online. Tickets give
the attendees access to numerous talks, interviews,
and presentations, all following a similar theme. There
are usually interactive aspects, too, such as “breakout
rooms” for mastermind sessions and networking.
 undraising events
 As the name suggests, the goal for these events is to
generate funding for an organisation. So it’s no surprise
that they’re often used by charities, non-profits, and
school sports clubs.
 Festivals
 In its simplest definition, a festival is an
organised series of events or performances
surrounding the same theme – for example
music, food, or comedy. It can either take
place in one space, such as a field or park, or
it can be spaced throughout different venues
in a city or area. Festivals usually last for one
day or more, while some span a whole month,
so you’ll need to be extra prepared.
 . Music festivals
 To host a successful music festival, it’s best to curate
acts in related genres, as this helps you to narrow
down your audience and target them appropriately.
Consider hiring other acts like comedians, too, for
variety. Although in-person music events can require a
big space and a hefty budget, virtual ones are often
much more accessible. Performers can pre-record their
performances to be streamed on the day, or they can
perform live via the likes of Facebook or Zoom. There
are also immersive platforms like Sansar to give
attendees a more realistic festival experience.
 2. Food festivals
 Food festivals involve a combination of food
trucks, live demonstrations, and tents selling
foodie goodies like innovative ingredients or the
latest kitchen tools. They’re often focused on a
certain theme, such as vegan food or international
cuisine, and are a great way to bring a local
community together. You can even hold a food
festival virtually by asking attendees to pay for
personalised meal boxes that are delivered
straight to their door, and using a video hosting
platform for meal and vendor chats.
 Community events
 Community events are designed to bring
people together, create positive change, and
build relationships between people in your
town or neighbourhood.

 1. Street parties
 One of the most popular ways to get your
neighbours together is to throw a street party,
whether that’s a traditional long table setup or
a doorstep drinks scenario. People often do
this for special events, such as Royal
Jubilees. But there are some rules and
regulations to abide by. For example, you’ll
usually need to get in touch with your local
council to ask for a road closure.
 2. Swap shops
 A fun way to get to know each other – and
reduce waste – is to host a neighbourhood
swap shop for second-hand goods. Everyone
has a table or stall and fills it with things they
no longer need. Unlike a car boot sale,
nobody has to pay for what they take and
leftovers can often be donated to a local
charity shop.
 3. Litter-picking and more
 Nothing says “community” like getting
together to actively make yours better.
Organise a day to improve a space in your
local area by picking litter, raking leaves, or
doing some guerrilla gardening. You could
also knock on doors and offer to help elderly
neighbours with their weeding or planting.
