Outsourcing your Corporate Training Weekend? Of course, you are. You’re not going to pay someone – on staff – as much as you’d have to pay to keep a qualified planner year around. You’ll want to hire the best, someone who knows music, entertainment, great venues, and how to make the most of your corporate event, without costing you untold dollars in trial and error.
#1 Reason to Hire an Event Planner
Limited budget? Of course, you have a limited budget. Even the biggest companies need to maximize the results obtained for dollars spent, unless you’re the IRS with an unending account balance. But, in reality, you’re probably not, so you’ll want to make the most of your corporate event budget. An entertainment planner knows how to make the big picture better and better, while cutting the budget on the details that don’t matter.
#2 Reason to Hire an Event Planner
Short time line, long stress line? Yeah, about that. If you’re scheduling for an event that has to happen on time, everything on the same weekend, and all the details maximized for corporate benefit, you’ll want to know that your corporate trainer isn’t also trying to get out an ad campaign for your best client. Hire the event planner and lose the stress.
#3 Reason to Hire an Event Planner
Don’t know the first thing about entertainment for a corporate training event? Of course, you don’t. That’s why you need to hire someone who works in the entertainment industry, who will readily know the difference between a cover band, a big band, a string band, and a look-a-like entertainer. You want someone who knows the insider knowledge about hiring bands, and has access to the BEST cover bands available.
#4 Reason to Hire an Event Planner
Do you know any music vendors personally? Nope. I didn’t think so. Having someone to negotiate those nasty contract details, search through acres and acres of random audio/video selections to find the right entertainer, and manage all the travel details to bring your show together would simply take the problem out of making an event happen.
#5 Reason to Hire an Event Planner
Star struck much? When they whisper Elvis has left the building, does your heart stop, because you missed him? Your event planner has met Elvis in person, can bring him back to the building, and won’t think twice about over-booking “Big Name Entertainers” for your event, to make your corporate training event the talk of the century! If you want to bring on the best managers, sales reps, and marketing agents, you’ll want a show-class event that gets talked about for the entire rest of the year. Your event planner can make that happen.
Planning a Talk of the Century Event is an investment of time, stress, money, and totally worthy of hiring the BEST event planner available.
