Event planning is currently one of the fastest growing industries.
Check out these tips on how to set yourself apart and stand out from your competition.
Tip #1. Creativity is Key:
In an ever-moving industry, to stay relevant and in demand, you must take your creativity seriously.
It is important to say up with the trends and look for inspiration outside of the events industry.
Lean on your creative partners that help you with the visual appeal of your event. Choose vendors and suppliers that are looking into the future.
Tip #2. Don't Forget the Pics:
When you have created the most fantastic event, nothing is more tragic than not getting pictures and documenting it. Often we are so caught up in the production we forget to get the pics to showcase our work. Remember that all of those pictures are key to getting new referrals, creating content for your social media accounts, and to building your portfolio.
Tip #3. Proper Risk Management can Save the Day:
Even with the best risk management plan in place, things will go awry. But here is a little tip about that-This can be your moment to shine, and here's why-When something happens that is not planned for, it is up to you to decide how you will react to the situation. By staying calm, focused, and excellent communication with your team, almost everything can be solved. When you can do this, it reassures your clients that they are in the very best hands and ups the trust level that much more.
Tip #4. Green is the In Thing:
We all need to be doing our part in reducing our carbon footprint. When it comes to green meetings, a majority of venues, vendors, and suppliers are onboard. Putting on a green event can be a fantastic selling point if you are genuinely committed to doing your part to make it happen.
Tip #5. Education Matters:
Invest in your learning. Learning promotes growth and growth leads to improving the quality of your events. Just because something has worked well for you in the past doesn't mean it will always work. It is essential still to be learning and improving your skills. Invest in a live class, online course, or some other type of education platform to keep your skills fresh and sharp.
