Organizing a large-scale event can be an extremely stressful endeavor, even when you have experience in event management. There are some businesses and individuals who take on such events because they believe that hiring an outside company to help would be too great an expense to shoulder. This is a myth! The truth is, that in the long term, a venue-finding and events company mean massive savings in both money and the even more valuable resource – your time! How can this be so?
1) A large and reliable directory
An experienced venue finder is worth their weight in gold because their contact lists are usually overflowing with solid contacts at great venues across a wide area. Once you’ve told them what you want, they’ll likely know immediately the top five locations to look into and how to get in touch with the relevant folks there. No trawling through Google results = countless hours saved.
2) Experience dealing with all manner of demands
Any venue finding agency worth its salt will have helped source venues and organize a variety of different event types. So, when you start working with one, it’s very likely they have the right know-how to make your event a real success. If it’s your first time organizing something, you may not be aware of the same potential pitfalls that a venue finding agency would be! No risk of throwing money down the drain.
3) Your own personal consultant there
If you’re staging a one-off event, or you only do a handful of events in a year, then you’re probably not looking to have some kind of events coordinator on retainer. Finding a reliable agency means you’ll get your own consultant to call on when you need them, who understands your needs and past projects, and knows how to get what you’re looking for. Flexible, easy, hassle-free and likely a good saving in the long run.
4) One-stop services
Many venue finding agencies don’t just simply give you an address and phone number of a suitable venue, but also help with the event itself. If you still have to look at food, drink, hospitality, technology and all the other aspects yourself, then that’s just more and more hours of your time being taken up with things that could be handled by people with the right experience.
In short, a venue finding agency saves you both time and money because it allows you to focus on the big picture; on what you really know about – your business. Events are something that all kinds of businesses can benefit from, but that doesn’t mean the task of staging one will be easier or cheaper if you do it yourself.
