Outsourcing Your Event Planning

How does your office decide who is in charge of event planning? Do you search for the parent that throws the best birthday parties? Is the person who planned a party at their last job the automatic choice? Is it your marketing team or HR’s responsibility? Or, do you draw straws to see who gets the task of planning out the annual holiday party? While event planning might seem like a straightforward task, it’s incredibly complicated to get right. That’s why so many businesses choose to outsource their event planning.  

Why Is Event Planning So Difficult and Time Consuming?

Planning a fundraiser, gala, product launch, grand opening, corporate retreat, holiday party or any other event takes a lot of time and effort. Without background knowledge in the intricacies of party planning, like how large a venue is needed, or long to anticipate it taking to serve dinner, or what size and shape tables work best, your event might not get the high impact you want. Companies that aren’t experienced in event planning also could end up spending more to produce the event due to a lack of expertise, spending countless hours researching appropriate venues and vendors. The right event planner will streamline the planning process to save your company time, money and energy.

Our process starts with a planning meeting to learn more about your vision for the event, understand your corporate values, determine the goal of your event and discuss your budget. Our team will work to outline a timeline for decision-making and supply procurement to keep things on track. We can assist with securing a venue, preparing your event timeline and manage all your vendors so that on your event day, your staff is fully immersed in the event experience, rather than tending to event details. Budgets, locations, timelines and vendor management are the things that we do every day, and we are pretty good at them!
