Event IQ is the blog of Planet Planit. It was originally created to help event organisers plan and produce more successful events. That original thinking remains but the blog has now been developed to include posts that have  a focus on research and strategy.  After all producing a great conference that didn’t add to the overall objectives of the organisation would be pointless.

Event IQ is your free source of articles on conferences and events.

The amount of content for event planners on the web has grown exponentially. The drawback is it can be hard to find knowledgable, trusted experts with practical advice.

Planet Planit is a go-to resource that cuts through the clutter to do just that.

Event IQ – Sharing Insights on Events

Putting on a conference requires a lot of work by many people. Making it run smoothly and ensuring that it exceeds all expectations requires many skills.

Understanding the pressures on event organisers and to help share tips and techniques across the globe, our blog was created.

It was and still is packed full of key advice to help event organisers, PR companies and suppliers.

Organising events may not be your key role. If so, you are in the right place. Event IQ can help take some of the pressure from you by providing you with knowledge on how to organise your event.

And even if you are experienced at producing events we believe that you will find useful information to help make your event more successful.

Writers & Contributors from across the Globe

Within Event IQ you will find that posts are provided by a mix of contributors from across the globe. Some posts are operational, some are strategic and some are commentary on events and business in general.

Our contributors have one thing in one common: they have a deep understanding of their field of expertise and have willingly agreed to share their knowledge to help you.

The guest posts are from practitioners who have the sweat and tears of hard work in their area. They share what has worked and what hasn’t worked for them.
