Summertime Event Planning

Summer in Florida can be a wonderful time to plan and host events. However, the high temperatures and pesky mosquitoes can make event planning challenging. If you are planning an event in Florida during the summer, here are some tips to make sure your event is a success.

Handling the Heat and Humidity

Florida is known for its hot and humid summers. To make sure your guests stay cool and comfortable, consider holding your event indoors or in a shaded outdoor space. If you do choose to host your event outdoors, make sure to provide plenty of water and other cool beverages for your guests. You may also want to consider renting misting fans or portable air conditioning units to keep your guests cool.

If indoors, remember to ensure that the air conditioning in the venue is set to an appropriate level.  The more people in an enclosed space, the warmer the room!  On the other hand, when too few people occupy a space and the air conditioning is turned up too high, then there is a chance that the temperature will be uncomfortably low. Either way, be sure to take temperature into consideration as you plan your event

Avoiding Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes can be a major annoyance during the summer in Florida. To keep mosquitos at bay, consider using citronella candles or mosquito repellent sprays. You may also want to consider having your event in a screened-in porch or outdoor space to prevent mosquitoes from entering the area.

In recent years, there has been a lot of advancement in the area of ecologically friendly pest control of mosquitoes in outdoor spaces.  Inquire about mosquito control methods with a provider near you for options.

Finding Suitable Venues

Florida has many venues that are suitable for summer events. If you are looking for an indoor venue, consider hotels, conference centers, or event spaces. If you are looking for an outdoor venue, consider parks, botanical gardens, beaches, or waterfront areas. Make sure to book your venue early, as popular locations can fill up quickly during the summer months.

Finding Appropriate Entertainment

When planning your event, make sure to consider the type of entertainment that will be appropriate for the occasion. Standard go-to entertainment for a family-friendly event includes a DJ or a live band that plays music suitable for all ages. If you are hosting a corporate event, the typical approach includes hiring a motivational speaker or arranging for a team-building activity of some sort. However, why be “standard” or “typical”?  Why not hire event entertainment that accentuates the tone of your event and creates fond memories in the minds of your guests?
