Event Management – Start Planning Early
We know, we know. How can we already be talking about the year-end function? Well, that actually brings us to tip 1: Start planning early. Venues get booked up early in the year, so if you have a certain venue in mind, you should book it ASAP. With event management, it is better to get started early.
Ask the Right Questions
Even if you think you have found your dream venue, don’t settle on it until you have done market research. What looks like a good deal to you may actually be a total rip-off. Make sure you ask about packages before signing on the dotted line. If you don’t have the time to manage all the details of your event, a package that includes catering may be the right thing for you.
Make it Interactive
Any event – whether it be a music festival or a conference – needs to be interactive. Make sure there are a bunch of fun things planned to keep everyone entertained. For example, we built one of the largest Scalextric in the country for Autotrader.
Leave People with Great Memories
Whether it’s an onsite photographer or a gift, leave people with something to remind them of the great time they had. A great way to create an activity and give people a little memento at the same time is to make a selfie booth! Grab a bunch of fun headdresses, wigs, and costumes and let your guests get creative with their event selfies.
When in doubt, Call an Event Manager
If it all seems just too much, and you just don’t have time or energy, hand the management of your event over to specialists. With a decade of experience, we know the tips and tricks to make sure that your year-end event is your most memorable one yet.
