Event Ideas

This page is a curated collection of event ideas for event pros by event pros. It’s the perfect place to get inspired and discover new trends.

At ThymeBase, we build event planning software, and we’ve seen some pretty innovative and memorable event ideas being planned. We know that crafting special events takes creativity, artistry, skill, and research. Sometimes ideas come from clients, but more often than not, your clients will rely on you, the event pro, for suggestions. 

Sure, scrolling through Instagram is one thing. But do you know the right hashtags to follow? Are you tracking the trends on Pinterest and Google Trends? There’s a ton of inspiration out there!

Ideas can come from anywhere and everywhere, and that’s why we cover new trends. But these articles also discuss the how and not only the where and what. Here, you’ll find articles on event ideas that will help you find new inspiration and give you the tools to uncover new ideas for event design.

You could just browse the articles, and I’d definitely recommend that sometime, but you can also use the blog’s search bar to look for specific keywords. Or you can reach out to us here at ThymeBase and ask. The team is always happy to talk about events and help you find relevant articles. And if we don’t have anything suitable, we’ll reach out to our community of pros to find some great tips.
