033

 

  1. Save time and energy

Be it your birthday party or an annual trade show, planning an event takes a lot of time and energy. Whatever the occasion you want to be worrying about making sure you get to see and mix with everyone, not if the caterers have remembered guest dietary requirements!

  1. Access event managers knowledge, experience and skills

Ever wondered how complex and extravagant events go off without a hitch? Event managers have usually worked in the industry for a long time, meaning they have connections and a reputation with suppliers, venues, photographers and many more! Resulting in a smooth process for all the questions you have ‘Who is the best caterer in town’, ‘How do I save money when it comes to table decorations’ etc!

  1. What if something goes wrong?

It’s only natural to have these worries I.e. what happens if it starts raining, what if there is a table knocked over etc. With an event manager, you don’t have to worry about this! They will do their best to resolve any problems that arise, quickly and efficiently. Leaving you to enjoy your event!

  1. Save valuable money and avoid hidden costs

One of the only things that may put you off hiring an event manager is the cost, but their costs are often less than you think. The money they can save you soon makes up for their cost, from avoiding hidden charges with venue hire and saving money with suppliers they have previously dealt with, event managers are more than worth their fee!

5) Stress free life

The stress incurred whilst planning an event can often take away from the enjoyment of the actual event itself, stay stress free with a professional event manager to handle all the stresses and worries that come with planning events and hire and event manager!

NE Event, baby shower, event planner

How I survived not organising my own baby shower…

Neelam Sultan, baby shower, event plannerYou get very accustomed to having things your own way when you’re an event manager. You have to lavish everything with a huge dash of imagination to ensure your parties, gatherings and networking events stand out. Alongside which, you have to exhibit that precision and attention to detail, ensuring everything has that just-so flavour, acclimatising you to a certain standard of results. So I definitely found it difficult to hand over the reins to my friend, ‘Little Claire’, who I have known for a good fifteen years, to choose and plan everything for the day…

I was wondering if the party was going to meet my expectations. There was about 30 people on the list, including my mum from Manchester and my sister who is visiting from Pakistan. It needed to be a big day with zero boredom and a complete rush of fun and games knowing me, so a tall order to say the least..!

NE Event, baby shower, event planner  I was hoping that we’d be set to have a great day with nothing ordinary. If we had ended up doing something that we could do anywhere, I have to admit that I might been a little disappointed. I was worried Little Claire may get nervous and bogged down with the details about money and tickets, and as a result lose the focus on the big picture of making it memorable for everyone.

Although I’d been thinking considerably about this event, I had to take a deep breath and let go. It was hard, but I managed to detach myself considerably from the whole idea of the day, apart from putting my foot down on the venue, Hamptons Home & Garden in Bawdeswell, Norfolk..!

NE Event, baby shower, event plannerThe big day…

NE Event, baby shower, event plannerAll the girls had mucked in and put a real focus on the actual activities that we got involved in on the day and everyone had an amazing time, especially me and it was a nice job done even if it was different to how I would have done it. There was a delicious afternoon tea, then lots of crazy baby shower games, like tasting baby food, guessing baby items and sniffing chocolate in baby’s nappies. If only real nappies smelt that good!

So what have I learned about the whole affair? Well, even though I thought I might not be a control freak, this whole adventure has proved that I am probably simply one of those people who has to have things their own way! Is this a bad thing? After lots of contemplation, I’ve decided it’s probably not. Having to work in an industry where attention to detail is vital, a critical eye for getting things right is not only preferable, but somewhat essential.

Four reasons you should leave event planning to the experts

Sometimes you’d be forgiven for thinking that you might be able to put on an event in your own business. After all you organise a mean summer barbeque and your wedding went well a few years ago. However, when you need to impress business contacts and attract potential new customers, there’s every chance you’re being judged on your ability to get it right.

And key to creating the perfect event is using a brilliant event planner. There are loads of reasons as to why… so we’ve given you four of the best…

  • Perfect Timing – like cooking a brilliant Sunday dinner, event planning is about the timing. If one element, such as the sound system, doesn’t arrive when its needed this will be the thing all your guests remember. For a smooth and trouble free delivery, get the experts in.
  • It’s a Stress – unless you’re an expert at keeping a whole load of balls in the air and plates spinning, then event management isn’t for you. And that’s just looking after the entertainment. Unless you’re the kind of person who knows how to get everything right on time then you’ll exhaust yourself planning a party.
  • Knowing What Works – sometimes ideas sound better on paper than they do in real life. There’s no substitute for experience as they say, and a proper event planner will know that it’s not a great idea for everyone at a wedding to wear tuxedos or for a free bar to serve shots of tequila.
  • Watch Out for Hidden Extras – all too often there are those crazy little charges that creep in from nowhere if you don’t know what you’re doing. The original quote didn’t include the VAT? Delivery is extra? If you want to make sure your event is on budget then why not pay one cost to someone who knows what they’re doing.

If you’re thinking of putting on a party, why take any chances? The knowledge and expertise of NE Event will not only make sure all the details are in place for a fantastic show, presentation evening or gala, but also that there are big smiles on the faces of all your guests.
