Event planners are responsible for creating and executing every aspect of an event – a daunting task. With the advent of some great tools and emergence of great resources the event planning process is becoming a bit easier.

This infographic via Mashable/CrowdCompass is an awesome overview of event planning process loaded with useful stats to help you understand the planning world better. Here are some of my favorites:

  • On average only 35% of RVSPs will attend

  • 1.78 staff to guest is the ideal ratio
