Ensure an event’s success by choosing from conference venues in Johannesburg with qualified, experienced planners.Langhams
The first step your business needs to make after deciding to hold an event is to find a suitable venue. There are several conference venues in Sandton, Johannesburg that offer varying packages, but not all offer an experienced event planner that can pull the event together from start to finish. When you’re hiring a professional event planner, you’ll want to know you can entrust then with every detail of your planning.If they have the right qualifications you’re sure to have a great experience, but having a team that can offer you the below is a real win:
- They’re well connected
No event planner can execute every element of an event themselves, or the scope of their services might not cover everything needed to be done. If so, they should be able to provide you with a list of vetted vendors you can contact directly to fill in any gaps be it in catering, décor or floral arrangements. Similarly, if they outsource any services or products to vendors, they should be transparent of the fact.
- They expect the worst
The best event planner plans for the best, but expects the worst. A great planner will have a plan A, B and C for various scenarios that could occur, so that even if the worst should happen, the event can go on without a hitch. They will also be able to think on their feet should something go wrong in the moment, and come up with a plan to remedy the situation.
- They track everything
There is a wealth of project and event management tools available to today’s event planner, and this can be used to keep tabs on everything happening at any given time. This means you can get real-time updates on the progress of their planning, see where your budget is going, as well as view attendance lists, outstanding actions and other important checklists.
- They’re proactive
We’re all busy people and nobody has time to chase up others to get a job done. A great event planner will take it upon themselves to keep you updated and ensure any forms that need to be signed or approved are carried out timeously.
Integrate questions covering the above qualities into your event planning selection process to get a better idea if your planner’s potential is good or great.
