Corporate Mondays: Have a back plan for your event
Chances are that something might go wrong at your event. Are you prepared for this? Do you have a back up plan? At RSVP, we are all about looking ahead and planning in advance. The first step is to meet with the client and come up with the most solid plan for the event. We then sit down with our team and come up with a secondary plan in case something does go wrong with the first plan. A few things that might go wrong at any event: Hosting an out door event- it starts to rain, an entertainer cancelling last minute, transportation not showing up and even a power outage!
Dealing with the problems at hand fast and efficiently tells you a lot about how prepared you were in case of an emergency. Having back up equipment is a good plan in case that microphone, laptop or projector stops working. What if that photographer does not show up? Having an extensive vendors data base, as well as great vendor relationships is huge when you pick up that phone to ask for the favour. A site tour with the venue is always a must. Ask the venue about solutions and steps they have taken in the past to solve problems as they arise.
