Party Planning With Kristin D. Williams, CEO, F.A.M.E. Production Group
Here, Williams reveals how to select the right events partner for your holiday party.
What are the telltale signs of a professional events management company?
Every events management company should have vendor and venue relationships and should be able to contract photographers and videographers for your event. Staff should be provided as well. If you, the client, must provide any of these elements, think twice.
What questions should consumers ask before hiring an events management company?
Does this company plan, market and execute — some companies just plan, others plan and execute and some help you market the event too. Be sure you understand exactly what their responsibilities include.
Can you turn a bad or boring party around — as it is happening? If so, how?
Social media! If the turnout for your party is not what you expected, use social media to your advantage. Instagram cool pictures of the setup to entice your audience. Tweet any specials or promotions. Social media happens in real time and people are visual so once they see the party happening, it may become the difference between someone staying home or coming to your event.
