Planit Events Inc. shares 3 reasons hiring an event planner can help make your event an even bigger success.
3 Reasons Hiring an Event Planner is Beneficial
Events, especially large events, take considerable amounts of planning, organizing, and much more. The task of putting an event together and executing it can be extremely stressful and time-consuming, especially if it is the first few events you are putting together. In this case, it can be beneficial to consider hiring a professional event planner to help ease the stress and time commitment, even if they are only helping with certain aspects of the event. In today’s blog, I will share three reasons you should consider hiring an event planner for your upcoming event, whether it is in person or virtual.
One of the many great perks of hiring an event planner or coordinator to help you is that you can save a great deal of money. Consider what your budget is for the event and present it to your event planner. From a professional standpoint, we can tell you if the expectations you have for your event match the budget you have put together, and in the case, it doesn’t, we can help with that too! Budgets can be tricky for events, but with practice, they become more manageable (trust me, I know). For example, perhaps you want a specific venue, but it cuts quite deeply into your budget; event planners can find ways of cutting costs to ensure that you get precisely what you want out of your event.
Numerous years in the industry have allowed many event planners like myself to create long-term, meaningful relationships with vendors, caterers, venues, and much more, so why not take advantage of these special industry offers. The vendors recommended to you have proven their skills to be above industry standards to ensure that they are the best fit for the event you are putting together.
Do you need a liquor or gambling license for your event? Not to worry, event planners know all the requirements for attaining a license to ensure that your event runs smoothly and stays within all legal limits. Using an event planner can ensure that you have all of your boxes ticked off so that you don’t have to worry about fines for improper licensing.
Ok, we’ve all heard the saying “time is money,” and there is real substance behind it. Your time is valuable, and you want to use it to the best of your ability. However, if you already have a busy schedule, adding the enormous task of planning and executing an event can be stressful. Adding an event planning professional into the mix can save you time, which means you can focus on the things that are top priorities to you while we handle the event! Working alongside an event planner can look so different. Perhaps you are still involved in the planning but need an extra hand, or if time is a significant constraint, we can take your vision of the event and make it a reality; it’s our specialty and passion!
In addition to saving you time, event planners bring excellent project management to the table. We can handle everything from booking the venue to ensuring that you meet your goal for the event. Events can be tricky sometimes, and it’s essential to have plans in place if certain aspects fall through. For example, living in Alberta, we frequent snow storms (I know I’m sorry I shouldn’t be mentioning the “s” word this early), but there have been cases where vendors fall through due to terrible weather. Professional event planners are trained and have the industry knowledge to fill in the gaps to ensure that the event runs just as smoothly as planned when unforeseen circumstances arise. I’ve also seen cases where your dream venue isn’t available, but I assure you, working together, we can find something just as great!
Whether you need a little bit of help or want the entirety of the event planning and execution off of your hands, a professional event planner can help! Let’s take the stress off your shoulders so that you can sit back and relax the wonderful event that you envision. I’ve attached a checklist below to see if you could use the help of an event planner.
