Many companies who are hosting an event, whether in the city where they are based or in another location such as Miami, appoint a staff member within the company to handle all of the details. Is this a good idea? Not so much. At Events & Logistics, our Miami event and logistics professionals can handle every detail of your corporate or social event, conference, or meeting. It’s what we do, the core of our services!
If you’re tempted to have someone within your company handle the coordination of an event, there are some compelling reasons to hire professionals. Here are a few.
Do you really want to put your employee under so much stress? According to some studies, event coordinators – also called meeting planners – are placed under a tremendous amount of stress. In fact, event coordinators rank right up there in terms of stress with airline pilots, police officers, and corporate executives. Do you really want to place one or more of your dedicated employees under that much stress? While certain employees may be extremely talented when it comes to marketing tactics such as email marketing, social media, or management of content (blog posts, newsletters, etc.), planning an important conference or meeting is an entirely different ball game. In addition, when you appoint someone in marketing or even the office manager to coordinate an event, you are taking their time and effort away from the essential tasks they perform on a daily basis.
Hiring an event planner or coordinator is not an expense you cannot afford. Considering that a professional event planner can take care of every detail from venue selection, menu, decor, booking entertainment, invitations, correspondence, and even photography or stage set up, the cost is actually a non-issue considering the likelihood that your event will be a huge – and perhaps profitable – success.
If planning an event, would someone on your own staff know what NOT to do? Not likely. Reputable, established event planning & logistics professionals are just as knowledgeable regarding what not to do as they are about what must be done. At Events & Logistics, we understand what makes any event successful, and more important, we understand why so many fail. We are experts in crisis management, and capable of saving the day when something unexpected happens at the last possible minute. What happens if the entertainment you have planned has to cancel at the last minute for medical/personal reasons? When times get tough, the tough get going. Again, it’s what we do!
Don’t put your employees under pressure in an effort to save money. At Events & Logistics, our specialty is handling every detail for corporations, companies, or any business or social event for those who desire to travel to Miami from the northeast cities of Boston, Philly, New York, Baltimore, or any other location in the U.S. or around the world! Let us make your event a smashing success.
