Planning events is demanding, high-pressure and meticulous work. Miss one step and the entire operation can come toppling down. Not everybody has this locked down to an art, which is why event management companies exist in Johannesburg. It’s great that you have the option to entrust professionals with your events. However, we’re not magicians – although we come close! There are a few things we wish our clients knew. In this article, we share a few of the more important ones for the next time you hire a company to do your events.

Professional Your Gala Event

1) The Sooner You Confirm A Date, The Better It Is For Everyone

If there’s one common challenge that every event planner has experienced multiple times, it’s the uncertain date. It’s difficult to plan an event efficiently if you don’t know when it will be happening. Sharing a date in advance allows planners to strategise and carry out logistical stuff, such as invites, while there’s still time. Decide on a date as soon a possible.

2) Come To Us With An Open Mind – Even If You Already Have Ideas

Client’s with a clear vision can be both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because they know exactly what they want, but a curse if they aren’t open to alternative solutions. We appreciate your input; there’s no doubt about that. However, please let us merge it with our expertise to produce excellence. You won’t regret it.

3) Believe It Or Not, We’re On Your Team

This just adds on to the previous point. The moment you approach us, we take on your event vision and goals as our own. Trust us with it – we’re here for you.

4) A Clear Brief Helps Us To Help You More Accurately

Speaking of ideas, it’s important to note that briefing can make or break an event. Communication is key, always. Layout your expectations clearly on paper to ensure that your ideas can’t be misinterpreted. Once we have solid brief, we can make alterations and additions to suit any changes that come up as time goes by.

5) Murphy’s Law Is A Thing, But That’s Why You’ve Hired Us

“Anything that can go wrong will go wrong”. We’ve all heard this a gazillion times, but, lucky for you, we’re prepared. We work hard to cover blind spots and ensure a seamless experience for you, so go ahead and kick your feet up while we’re in the driver’s seat.
