You can accomplish a lot in a few weeks. Which is good, because that’s about how much time you have left until the Open begins on Feb. 24, 2022.
Planning Your 2022 Open Event
It’s a lot of work to go from New Year’s resolution season straight into prep for the Open. But you can do this. The key is staying organized so your to-dos are always under control. If you chip away at your tasks bit by bit, your event will fall into place.
Did you have an event-planning method that worked for you last year? Try building off of that by asking yourself:
- What went well in 2021?
- How can I replicate those results?
- What could’ve gone better?
- How can I make adjustments to improve this year’s event?
If you’re running an Open event for the first time, we have a step-by-step plan already outlined for you in this year’s Ultimate Guide to Running the Open. This will bring some structure to your event planning.
And if you’re an experienced gym owner, you can use our guide to improve specific aspects of your Open and gain new ideas to freshen up your event.
