6 Benefits to Hiring an Event Planner
More often than not I hear the question, why should I hire an event planner when I can do it myself or I can just give the task to my admin staff because it will cost me less money.
Well the answer is quite simple! Would you install your electrical when you are not an Electrician? Now you may take a stab at it because it may seem like a simple task or you think it will save you money. But the end result could add to additional man hours of staff and potentially lead to a big disaster.
Event professionals are super-organized people who have a flair for creativity and understand the requirements for all types of events. Hiring a recognized corporate event management company such as ReFresh Event Management Inc. will provide you with numerous benefits, including but not limited to the following:
Event planners are skilled professionals who can potentially save your company money in the long run. Now I know what you are thinking, many people assume that planning an event in-house will cut costs, save money and you may think, how hard it can really be…
However, there is more to it to consider than the initial cost. Event planners typically have built trusted and lasting relationships from venues, speakers, decor company’s, rental facilities, AV companies, production, photographers, etc. Planners are privy to discounts that may not be available to the general public simply due to the relationships they have already made in the industry. Professional event planners have vast experience when it comes to areas where costs can be cut, therefore actually saving a client money.
Vision to Reality
Corporate event planners are in the business of making dreams come true. It is their job to take your vision and make it a successful reality. Due to this, planners tend to look at events in a different way. Trust a corporate event planner to turn your ideas into a successful party for you.
Things just look better
Most of us don’t consider the psychological impact of how chairs are angled, nor do we think of the effect that certain colors have on guests. Rather, when we plan an event, we focus on the practical and technical needs. How many chairs should there be? What food should be served? A professional event planner, on the other hand, is trained to understand that a great event looks and feels great. They plan for the hundreds of details that the average person overlooks. This way guests know they are somewhere special even if they don’t fully understand what gives them that impression.
Event planners will monitor guests, food, beverage, music, entertainment, safety, and other elements to ensure a successful event. You will not be bothered with the minute details of the event, which means that you can give your full attention to the purpose of event and your attendees.
You’ll be able to breathe
Doing everything yourself is a tremendously challenging and stressful task. Hiring an event planner allows you to step back, focus on the areas that you know and care most about, and be your most productive self. During the occasion itself, the event planner takes care of the guests, contends with obstacles as they arise, and ensures that all of the logistics are effectively addressed. Having this freedom allows you the opportunity to make sure guests feel welcome and comfortable, and also helps you center on any presentations that you may have to give.
The last, and most important, benefit of hiring a corporate event planner is the passion that they bring to your event. Event planning is what they live and breathe on a daily basis, and almost all event planners are incredibly passionate about what they do. This translates to success on your next event.
Planning an event doesn’t have to be stressful; hiring an event planner cuts down that stress, leaving you to do your job. Corporate event planners not only save you time, stress, and money, but they can also take your vision and make it a reality.
