Once you have determined that an upcoming event needs to take place it’s time to hire an event planner to help with the organization, planning, and execution of your event. In order to make sure that all of the essentials are handled properly you’ll need to hire an effective and experienced planner that you can trust completely. Here are some of the essential ingredients you should look for in a planner to make sure that your event goes off without a hitch.
Look for an event planner that has a lot of experience planning different types of events. The more experience the better. There are never two events that are exactly the same and a lot of experience will ensure that any complications can be handled effortlessly on your behalf.
2. The Trust Factor
You’re going to be putting your event in the hands of another team. You’ll need to know that you can absolutely trust this company in terms of handling your event and your budget. Whether you plan on spending $2000 or $200,000 on the event, there needs to be a trust factor there. In order to build up this trust level, make sure that you check out the company’s credentials and their references. This is, in fact, the most important thing you can do when hiring an event planner. At Toronto Event Organizers we are more than willing to show you our credentials and provide a list of references that we have worked with in the past.
3. Understanding the Fee
Any event planning company should lay out a fee schedule that you can understand. There should be no hidden expenses behind this cost list and you should know upfront exactly how much this event is going to cost including the planning fee. There should be a written contract between both parties and it should be well-worded and easy to understand. A contract with a fee schedule is an indication that the company is professional.
4. Willing to Listen and Answer Questions
You’ll need to be able to communicate easily with the planner you hire. During the first phone conversation, you’ll be able to tell whether the event planner is listening and absorbing what you have to say and is willing to answer all of your questions. A planner that won’t listen and isn’t able to duplicate what you want and need for the event just isn’t going to be able to provide the essentials that distinguish a good event from a great one.
