"It's not the plan that's important, it's the planning." ~~Dr. Gramme Edwards~~

In Springfield, as the State Capitol, we are anticipating the beginning of the Illinois State Fair this week. We know friends and neighbors who have been attending the Fair every year since they were young children. Planning for the State Fair begins almost immediately after the finish of the Fair in August for the next year. And why is that?

Successful events are the product of weeks and months of planning and organization. Planning ahead allows for careful thoughtful preparation to achieve and perhaps exceed your vision and goals. You are able to strategically evaluate what worked and what didn't work from previous events. Planning ahead also allows for better preparation in the face of unexpected occurrences.

Do you plan conferences, seminars or events for your company or business? Even if you are planning your first event or you are an "ole" pro at event planning, Capitol City Speakers Bureau is able to help you in selecting the most appropriate speakers to meet the goals of your event. We work with some of the best speakers in the business: motivational speakers, healthcare speakers, business leaders, sports personalities, and more. An inspiring keynote speaker will provide far reaching benefits. We have been partnering with meeting planners for more than 22 years and our motto is: WE HELP YOU THRILL YOUR AUDIENCE! And yes, proactive planning leads to incredible performances!
