A pharmaceutical company exhibiting at a medical convention trade show in your city wants to host an off-site evening hospitality reception for 200 of their best customers, featuring a theme that celebrates the local culture.

The pharmaceutical company is proud to host a hospitality reception to thank their customers and their workers for their services. Not only is this for the people a part of this company but is intended for everyone as well. However, this specific event is mainly designed for everyone to share their experiences and motivate others to wanting to pursue the medical field. The best part of any event is the anticipation of it all. Thinking about who will be there, what the environment will feel like, the food that will be catered, the activities that will go on, and the souvenirs are all part of what gets an event planner excited when creating events.

Lights, camera, action! The pharmaceutical company is excited to host an event providing to their customers. The anticipation will be built by making fliers, making invitations, posting online, and of course, word of mouth. The first time the event becomes just a thought is probably almost just as exciting as when the event is actually happening.

... customers. The anticipation will be built by making fliers, making invitations, posting online, and of course, word of mouth. The first time the event becomes just a thought is probably almost just as exciting as when the event is actually happening. It creates imagination and hope for the exact image of what the event is going to look like. The pharmaceutical company is looking forward to targeting out to those who are in the medical field or at least have interest in the medical field so these people can network with one another. The start of the planning will be the most fun and most stressful time as the company will need to look into the budgeting and participation of the event. Dealing with the event itself is one thing, but dealing with the people of the event is another. It is important to look into where the attendees will park, the cost of the parking, and how to deal with the entrance and exit traffic. The pharmaceutical company will have to get together with a parking company. When the guests arrive, the flow of them entering the event will be an issue as well, so it will be important for someone to control the flow of arrival. We would like the atmosphere of this event to be casual for the guests to feel comfortable enough to speak with one another without feeling too awkward. The temperature of the room will lean towards on the cooler side so it will allow the guests to walk around a lot and not sit down too much. Temperature affects what a person feels...

...What you need to know about banquet halls We receive about 10 phone calls a day and about 15 emails a day. 95% of the inquiries is about wanting to have a reception or party at the lowest price. This is understandable but it's important to know what it takes to have a special event. 1. Ordering: linens, food, etc. 2. Set up - cleaning floors, set up tables, chairs, putting on linens, table settings, etc. 3. Payroll - It is necessary to have at least 2 chefs, wait staff, bartender, security, coordinator 4. Making sure your event goes smoothly is what we call "behind the scenes" and this consists of things you may never know go on. For instance, is the cake arriving on time, is the food order correct or perhaps something is missing, the DJ needs to have the list of songs and know the order of event, restrooms need to be supplied regularly, spills need to be cleaned up right away etc.  5. Clean up - Kitchen to be completely cleaned, All dishes/silverware/pots/pans to be cleaned, all linens removed & sent out to be cleaned, all tables and chairs moved to clean floors and polish, bar area to be cleaned etc. 6. Utilities - The A/C units have to be set at about 65 degrees with all the people in the room. Lights, ovens, ice machine, etc all adds us tremendously! 7. Overhead - Rent, advertisement costs, print costs etc. It is a misconception that the price per person is just the food. In fact, that can't be farther from the truth. Remember too that when you go to a...

...Event Planning – Questions To Answer Before You Begini 1. Do you have clear goals for staging a special event? Is the purpose to raise money? Assuming one of your purposes is to raise funds, it is important to determine when the funds are needed and what your financial net goal is. The strategy to raise significant dollars will be considerably different than one to generate a few hundred dollars. As a basic rule of thumb, match the event to your financial needs and timeline. Is the purpose to generate new donor prospects or volunteers? In most successful fundraising events, one of the goals is to attract new volunteers and money to support the organization. Otherwise you may be redirecting money previously given to the organization through other avenues and overtaxing current volunteers. Is the purpose to increase public awareness of your organization? If you want to increase the visibility of the organization, the event should be held where many people are exposed to the name and mission of your organization and great efforts should be aimed at good media coverage. Is the purpose to bring attention to your cause or mission? Too often the population served by the organization is confused with the audience for an event. Although the two should be compatible with regards to the basic values of the organization, the audience of your event may be significantly different than the clients you serve.

Catastrophic Event Response Planning

...The Leader You Want By nature, a catastrophic event will be chaotic and stressful. In these types of events, damage will occur in the form of lives and property can be lost. Some of the damage will come directly from the event, while additional damage occurs during the response to the catastrophic event. The abilities and guidance of the Catastrophic Event Response Team Leader can either mitigate or aggravate the impact of the event. The Response Team Leader is the single most important position during a catastrophic event. Not everyone has the abilities necessary to perform as the Team Leader. The ability to make sound decisions is not enough for a Team Leader. He must be able to make decisions under a range of conditions. On one hand, a Team Leader needs to be able to meticulously analyze a situation to determine the best outcome and on the other, he must be able to “think on his feet” and determine a quick and sufficient decision when time is a factor. During a catastrophic event, a Team Leader must be able to do more than make good decisions; he must be able to lead the members of the Catastrophic Event Response Team. The Team Leader must be able to supervise and manage personnel with a variety of backgrounds, skills, jobs and personalities. He must keep them motivated and on task regardless of the conditions. The Event Team Leader must also have the ability to organize projects and manage time effectively. As FEMA demonstrated, it is easy to lose......

...Event Planning – Industry Analysis Endra Newell Overall Summary Event planning is the organization, preplanning and preparation of countless details required for an event as well as the management of these details during the time the event actually occurs. It is the event planner’s responsibility to ensure all details of the event are being managed from selecting the appropriate venue to ensuring all invitations are printed and sent. They are accountable for the event running smoothly and effortlessly on the host’s behalf. History and Evolvement About 30 years ago, event planning was a service that the average person did themselves without seeking assistance from a third party. Event planning was indeed a service utilized more so by the wealthy and/or successful corporations. Fast forward to present day and an event planner has become more of a necessity than that of a housekeeper or nanny. The demand for such a service has increased due to time constraints of an individual, recognition of the industry amongst the middle class and the lowering cost associated with the use of such a service. This service is looked upon as one that eliminates the hassles and headaches of putting a tremendous amount of effort into planning and executing such events without enjoying yourself in the long run. According to the Bureau of Labor and Statistic, employment of event planners is expected to grow 20% from 2006 to 2016. Threat of New Entrance The event planning...
