It might just be me, but has anyone noticed the number of events taking place where the invitations go out a few days or a week before?
It seems whilst there are many more free events with ‘expert panels’, the notice time is shortening dramatically.
It could be that I only get invited last minute to make up numbers (surely not? 🙂 but here’s feedback for anyone organising panel discussions, breakfasts, dinner or receptions:
Please give us a bit more notice. Diaries are often full weeks in advance. Small companies, like the two I work on, have little capacity and need, even more than large firms, to plan in advance as we have no cover if something interesting comes up and we are already busy.
Why not organise your event with more advance time and put out invitations a month or six weeks before?
Just a thought.
