A professional, passionate & creative event planner must be able to bring together the different core elements of an event to aesthetically enlighten your event. In this way this way most attendees will be able to determine the theme, importance & topic of your event the minute they walk in. It’s not enough to know you’re going to a corporate or private event; it has to feel that way too.
One of the leading names in event planning Ron Wendt in an interview on party planning once said “If you can align the feel of an event with décor, you can make a flower tell the story of the whole event”.
Another vital skill set to look for in your next event planner is their ability to engage the attendees of the event by incorporating elements of bonding activities that engage the spirit of teamwork which in most corporate events are is the lifeblood of the event but even more intimate events like a wedding or baby shower this skill set can be very useful in keeping the event mood maintained throughout the event & make the event enjoyable & entertaining.
If your corporate or intimate event involves an exotic location where attendees will be arriving from different places then a MUST have feature to look for is the planner’s ability to manage travel plans, accommodation, transport and establish a partnership network of local hosts & suppliers.
Destination events like weddings can be double the challenge so never be afraid to ask your event planner if they have an established network surrounding your venue in mind or if they have a destination venue in mind where a network of vendors & suppliers is already established.
