Things To Remember While Organising An Event
Planning and executing an event that took months of hard work from you is not an easy thing to do. Once it is finally over, you might think your job here is done. But, most event managers forget how important the post-event managing is. Thus, here are few tips that every event manager must keep into consideration while organising an event.
- Polite Gestures– We all know how powerful being polite is. The basic manners taught to us since kindergarten like saying thank you, works throughout our lives in various ways. Expressing thanks to the attendees, speakers, photographers, caterers, sponsors and your partners is important once the event is over, successfully. Such polite gestures make it easier for every event management to collaborate with the person in future, which also improves attendee’s recurrence. The short and simple gestures create a positive impact on the people who values and appreciates you, also remembering you, even after the event ends. Making your attendees feel special in such small ways makes your career’s future brighter.
- Actions Speak Louder Than Words– when you have organised an event recently and it has been a grand success, don’t just talk about the success, show the people what you have done and allow them to judge for themselves. Collect materials like photographs, videos, and interviews of attendees and showcase them through your website, magazines, newspapers and other media. You could also send the photographs and videos of the attendees to them and let them have a flashback of the beautiful event organised by you. When your actions create a positive vibe among the people, it will eventually make them love you and want to work with you in future.
- Reflect On The Event– After the event is over, it is time for you to sit with your team and evaluate how the event was executed. Begin from planning to the execution, check every detail thoroughly and note down the problems you have faced while executing what you planned. When you list down the problems, find solutions to them so they do not occur the next time.
- Reviews On The Event– Right after the event is over or is about to end, ask your team of professionals to carry out a small survey to take feedbacks from the attendees about the event. Ask theme everything about the food, decorations, ambience and more to know about how the whole team has worked. This will also help you to understand if the caterers, photographers, sound recorders, decorators and other members of your team are good enough for working on your next project.
Great planners work on improvising their executions and growing their business, which includes the post-event also. Once the event ends, a good event manager will focus on the above mentioned tips and try to make the future events even better.
