Templates for Event Planning

Below are the templates we commonly use to plan our events.

  1. A Marketing and Promotions Plan should be used to strategize and plan out all of the marketing and promotions you will conduct leading up to your event. The document can also help guide you through what your goals, purpose and programming will be.
  2. Run of Show can be extremely helpful as a schedule. It can be sued prior to the event to get everyone on the same page for the flow of the event. It can also be used during the event to ensure you stay on track and leave enough time for all the scheduled activities.
  3. In order to have a great event, you need to be prepared with the right supplies. This Supplies Checklist will help you consider all of the supplies you should bring to your event.

Please note the following for the King Center inquiries.

The Kenneth King Academic and Performing Arts Center is only available for summer season rentals mid-May through mid-August. Once the fall semester begins, the facility returns to its intended purpose of supporting the campus’ Performing Arts departments as instructional, lab, and performance space. To that end, performance and support facilities may not be scheduled by any other programs for use during the fall and spring academic semesters. This includes use by any other on-campus departments, student organizations, or off-campus commercial clients. If you identify a date during our rental season that works for your purposes, please reach out so we can further discuss the details.

Contact Adam Popovich to discuss your individual needs, or to obtain more information on policies and space availability.
