Has nothing to do with which events, but the efficient transitions between races. That indoor meets like Boston or UW can run 8 heats of the mile, 5 heats of 3ks, 3 heats of the 5k, 15 heats of the 800, (and 400s, 200s, 600s, 1000s, straightaway sprints and hurdles, and relays...) between noon and 9:00pm is all about getting the next race lined up and off within 60 seconds of the last finisher crossing the line.
So, the real checklist for a fast meet:
Staff the check in table with more people
Put the check in table right near the start
Make sure the timing company is quick and ready for a fast paced session
Starters are grumpy old guys who don't have time for you to tie your shoes, take off your warm ups, etc.
