What are we grateful for at EventCheck Knox?

Happy Thanksgiving to all planners, venue directors, organizers, vendors, bartenders, caterers and everyone involved in the execution of events.

EventCheck Knox will be 1.5 years old next month, and we are grateful for the support from Moxley Carmichael and Pilot Flying J that allows us to offer this calendar and resource for planners.

We also are grateful for you – the ones who use EventCheck Knox to schedule your events. Here are my top five reasons for being thankful.

Early birds

EventCheck Knox works best when planners can see as much in advance as possible when events will be held. Thank you to everyone who sends in their events months in advance. Remember, all we need is a confirmed date. We can add details later.

Calendar checkers

I adore planners who say their first step is to check EventCheck. For example, the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum needed to pick a date for its popular Hats in Bloom in 2016 and settled on April 22. Why? The organization saw that the Women’s Fund of East Tennessee Luncheon was April 21 and the YWCA Keys of Hope Luncheon was the following week on April 28.

All three events target a similar audience of female supporters so the Knoxville Botanical Garden chose the Friday between those Thursday luncheons to avoid splintering attendees. That is exactly what EventCheck was intended to do.


We got an email Monday that said: EventCheck is a step above other event calendars! That made my week. We want to hear all feedback and truly appreciate anyone who takes the time to ask questions or offer insight.

Blog subjects

We reach out to organizations and their staff members to be interview subjects for our blog entries at “In Any Event.” I am grateful for the time and willingness to talk to our various blog writers, including interns who are delighted to get “real world” experience.

If you have an idea for a blog or are interested in being interviewed, please let me know by email at [email protected].

All event planners

I send a lot of emails and ask a lot of questions to get entries on the calendar and updated information. I am grateful for all event planners and especially their patience. This calendar works because of all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving!
