Is event management just a buzz word or is there really something to it? Here at Event Specialists we like to think of event management as the responsibility to plan and care for “the nitty gritty details’ of an experience. Be it a meeting, corporate event, or celebration, there are countless small details that go into making that day a success. From the to-do lists, to event registration, to the list of sponsors that are important to thank for making this day a reality, event management is all about making sure that an event fulfills its objectives while ensuring that nothing and no one falls through the cracks.
Right from the very beginning, it’s important to be clear about what your goals and objectives are for the experience that you are needing event management support services for. Here at Event Specialists we exist to take the stress of an event from you. We catch your vision and execute on your objectives, freeing you up to procure the critical information required to make an event a success, attend vision and strategy meetings, liaise with stakeholders, and – on the day in question – actually enjoy the event yourself! From measuring KPIs (Key Performance Indicators) to designing a RACI chart (also known as a Responsibility Assignment Matrix), we are ready to catch your vision, track your metrics, and translate your vision into a reality.
If there was one piece of advice we could give to prospective clients, it would be to ask for help from the event manager or event management team you contract. Don’t be afraid – a good event management team is not there to take over your job. Instead, they should function as an extension of you and reflect your vision.
