Whether the event you are planning is small or big, a lot of planning is involved. The job of an event manager is so challenging and stressful because a lot of angles have to be covered. Right from securing permissions to proceeding with the event, the event manager will have to provide a roadmap to the stakeholders covering all the relevant angles during the planning stage and making sure nothing is left out.

These days, event managers do not have to carry a pen and paper or create a checklist that almost invariably gets lost at a crucial time. Instead, they can enter all the details into an event management app and take it forward from there.
