One of the best ways to choose an event manager is to see them in action, which is why we host a number of networking events. Not only does it increase our business connections and relationships with potential suppliers, but it allows potential clients to see us in action.
If you’re still unsure whether you want to invest in an event manager for your event, consider these points:
Organising an event takes careful preparation and organisation. Using an experienced event manager means:
- You save time and money
- Staff are working on their proper job rather than dealing with the minutiae of the event
- You get expert advice and ideas
- You benefit from their many years experience
- You benefit from the best rates from suppliers/venues
- Staff attending on the day can mingle with guests rather than trying to deal with any issues that arise
Invest in your event – many attendees have strong opinions on whether an event was good or not based on how well it was organised.
How we can help you
To provide the best event management possible it’s important that we fully understand your event and what you, the client, is looking to get from it. Once we’ve done that, we can embrace your event and put our passion and organisational skills into it as well as our superb event management.
We arrange an initial meeting with you over a coffee to talk about your ideas. Once we have a good understanding we will then provide you with three different pricing structures based on full event management, pre-event management, and front of house management only. This gives our clients a clear picture of how we can work together.
Charity eventsThese can be as small or as large as you wish. A charity pub quiz, a charity dinner, raffles, auctions... the list goes on.
Christmas eventsThese come thick and fast from mid-November and business people can end up being very careful about which they go to. Make yours unique and interesting by having it at an unusual venue or adding a twist to the evening.
Ladies-only eventsThese can include afternoon tea, exclusive shopping events when the shop is closed to others, spa sessions.
Lunchtime seminarIdeal to increase other businesses understanding of what you do. Either roundtable or lecture theatre style, depending on numbers. If hosting, arrange delivery of light finger buffet, or if attending another premises give detailed timings for catering and finish.
Golfing eventsIdeal for networking on the golf course. Starting up a regular monthly group at a variety of local golf clubs early morning can work well to build relationships.
Doing 9 holes means you can all be back in your offices by midday.
Business breakfastIdeal for small groups in your own office to have business discussions to learn more about each other and improve working relationships. Usual start time is 7.30am for 8.00am with a 9.30am finish. Breakfast rolls and tea and coffee would be served at 7.30am.
Private tours/dinnersFinding an exclusive venue to entertain guests is always a winner. If you get the reputation of putting on bespoke events that no one else does, yours will always be the preferred one to attend in the event of there being another one on the same night.
Most venues are happy to accommodate the most elaborate of events, and if they can’t, then it’s the wrong venue!
