4 Incredible Ways to Find Inspiration for Event Setups

The Experience Economy drives event planners to think of the best setups to provide a transformational experience. Here are some ways to find inspiration for event setup and design.

Defined Event Goals Can Give You Clarity

If you have mapped out the event objectives with your team, it will be easier to brainstorm ideas on design and setup. You can hit the mark by sticking to the defined event goals and progress ahead by narrowing down the best ideas that align with the plan.

For example, if your summit is on Sustainability in 2022, you can source eco-friendly décor suppliers and items for creating the event setup.

Event Venue Can Inspire Theme Based Designs

There are cases where locations have inspired event ideas and themes! For example, if you have a Roman architecture venue, the event setup could be Renaissance-themed. The design could emphasize symmetry, geometry and proportions.

Tune in to the Right Social Media Channels

There's no shortage of design inspirations, styles, DIY ideas, etc., on social media networks like Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Reddit, Tumblr and Pinterest. To grace your feed with the best examples, follow popular event vendors, planners, designers and organizers.

You can streamline search by using proper hashtags like #Eventplanning #Eventideas #Eventdesign #Eventplanners #Eventstyling #Eventdecor #DIYideas and #Eventinspiration. By following the best accounts, discovering trendy event setups and design ideas pops up naturally.

Join Event Communities and Attend Local Events

One of the easiest ways for searching event design inspirations is by joining event communities on LinkedIn and other social media platforms. Now, you will always be up-to-date with the latest ways events are happening around the globe.

Another fun way of going through different event setups is attending events of all kinds. You can also network at local events and understand how they come up with designs to intrigue natives. Using that knowledge, you can develop unique plans for your event.
