What does your typical workday look like?
Similar to that of Wonder Woman! 😉 It involves a lot of typing, answering phones, handling client inquiries and occasionally humming random tunes in the showroom when it’s not busy.
What are some of your favourite events that you have worked on?
The Brock House Wedding Show and Crème de la Crème Wedding Show have been some of my favourite events.
What are some new rental items that you are coveting right now?
Corporate events such as conferences, tradeshows, or employee recognition events, can require a lot of planning. At A&B Partytime Rentals, we work with businesses and event planners to ensure these events have everything they need to run smoothly. Today, we wanted to share some corporate event planning tips, including examples of rental items regularly used for corporate events.
Determine goals and create a plan
As with most projects, determining goals is often the first step. Ask yourself: What is the event trying to achieve? How will success of the event be measured? Keep these goals in mind throughout the event planning process. Another essential first step is creating a comprehensive event plan that includes every detail from task delegation, deadlines, budgets, and invite management.
Carefully select vendors
From venues, caterers, and of course event rental suppliers, carefully select partners that will help make the event run without a hitch. Regularly communicate updates and changes to your suppliers, and have key contacts handy on the event day.
Make it memorable
What are some ways to leave a lasting impression on attendees? Whether through entertainment, a take-away, or a creative theme, think of ways to make the event really stand out from the rest.
