It’s pretty satisfying to check off items from your to-do list. Accomplishing things one by one and getting ever so close to achieving your goals can be quite the stress reliever.    

If only creating the to-do list was just as satisfying. For event professionals, putting together an event checklist can be one of the most overwhelming parts of the planning process, but it doesn’t have to be. 

We’ve created this comprehensive event planning checklist template to guide you every step of the way. It details essential event tasks in chronological order, starting nine months before your event begins and ending after your event is complete. 

Use this template to: 

  • Quickly navigate between stages of the event planning process. 
  • Add comments or notes to each task to keep track of important information as it arises.  
  • Easily delegate tasks to your team members. 
  • Add target dates for completing tasks and easily stay on track. 
  • Cross off items as you finish them.
