Five Things You Need To Know About Event Planning

Almost everybody has planned an event at some point in their lives, even if they didn’t exactly consider it to be event planning at the time. Whether it was a wedding or a 21st birthday, a picnic or a dinner party, the chances are it was a stressful and time-consuming process. At a corporate level the things that can go wrong are many. This is one time when, if things go wrong, pizza and ice cream are most definitely not going to cut it.

Here are five reasons to call in the event planning cavalry:

Money

You’ll spend it but you’ll save it. An event planning company knows how to wring every penny out of even the most modest budgets. They will negotiate contracts, sweet talk suppliers and find ways to cut costs without cutting corners. Meanwhile you and your staff can concentrate on the jobs they are paid to do.

Time

It really can’t be emphasised enough how much time it takes to plan an event of this size. Something as supposedly simple as hiring a venue is a mammoth task that can take weeks of phone calls and negotiating to settle. Do they have the correct type of facilities? Is there sufficient parking? What are the transport options like? An event planning company will take these kind of details in its stride.

Aesthetics

In many ways a corporate event is like a theatrical performance, with stage directions, timings and technical details to put in place. These are all the things that make an event look great and create a buzz around your company name. There is an array of details that need to be carefully thought out, from decorations to lighting requirements. Hiring a specialist to take care of the visual and practical details will create an event that sticks in the mind of the audience.

Setting

When it comes to where to host an event the options are often limitless. Should it be this venue or that one? This city or different? All of these decisions can affect sales and attendance as well as being dependent on logistics such as transport and accommodation. Provide the event planning company with an outline of your needs and they will help choose the perfect venue for your event.

Get the Expertise You Need

An event of this size requires employing staff from various sources, whether they be caterers, security, technical staff or event hosts. An event planning company will always know the best man or woman for the job.
