Event Planning Request

If you are planning an event at Brown and desire consultation or management support from Event Strategy and Management, please complete our inquiry form.

Whether it is by managing high-profile events, offering consultation services, or providing units with information and resources, ESM provides a range of services to campus event planners.

For your request:

  • Describe the vision and desired outcomes for your event, and the Event Strategy Team can determine how best to assist. Our team will assess each event inquiry to determine the level of assistance we can provide.
  • Event requests should be made at least six months in advance of the date of the event. Please note that submission of the form does not guarantee that we will be able to provide a level of planning support to your event.
  • ESM reserves the right to assess a 20% Event Planning Service Fee for services for third-party events. A third-party event is one sponsored by an organization that does not hold a University-controlled account. The Event Planning Service fee does not apply to events or activities that are fully sponsored by Brown and have no involvement with a third-party organization.
