When you are organizing the event, you think that your meeting will be very important. Unfortunately, the guests do not always think the same way. For them, your event is one of many who are invited.
So to avoid standing alone in the meeting room, you should choose the date after you’ve made 3 simple questions.

On what day of the week you want to organize your meeting?

While it is a professional meeting, it is best not to propose it on Sunday.
People that day want to dedicate themselves to the family and their hobbies. On the other side, the association meetings are held almost obligatory on Saturdays and Sundays.
During the week, most people do not have the opportunity to participate because of the work.

In which period of the year?

There are some months when people are more engaged. Of course you have to understand what are based on the target to which you refer. If you work with the lifeguards, for example,

avoid to involve them in the period of August because it probably will all guard the beaches. If you organize the union meeting of Santas, keep her in December otherwise nobody will come!

Is there any other event in that period?

It seems obvious, but many people organize their meetings in conjunction of events almost identical a few kilometres away! You avoid making this mistake. Rather than compete with other events within your industry and risk losing, be smart and organize them in another period!

Now that we have dusted off these common sense tips, you’re ready to know the solution of all problems related to the choice of the date of an event.
