Event permit requirements change constantly to meet the ever-evolving world of city and state governments. That is why you need a full understanding of event permits. All that information you provide for an event permit is just so the issuing agency and its individuals cannot be held liable in the case of negligence or accidents. An event permit is a legal document and it gives everyone involved peace of mind. The cost of an event permit is nominal compared to the cost of an event getting shut down by the authorities.
2. What is the biggest headache when it comes to obtaining an event permit?
They are not cheap and often when conceptualizing an event or planning one the client has forgotten to factor in event permit costs. In addition for one single event it is often a myriad of different permits that are required by the city authorities.
3. How soon should you think about trying to get permits for an event?
As soon as the client or brand has approved the event. Depending on the venue and the type of event permits that are required many event permits have strict lead times.
4. What is the most common event permitting mistake?
The biggest mistake would be telling yourself “we will get away with it.” Brands and agencies invest tons of time and hours in experiential events and the last thing you want is an event to get shut down before it even starts.
5. The second most common event permitting mistake?
Not giving enough detail. It is not enough to get an event permit- you need to get one that is specific to your event. The more detail you provide the better and the greater the chance you will have of having a successful event.
