Sure your event planner has skills in negotiating contracts, booking vendors, coordinating timelines, and registering guests. But there’s one major skill necessary to facilitate a successful event that is often overlooked.
Tech is nearly part of every major event. There’s screens, microphones, speakers, lighting, and not to mention the actual technical knowledge of being able to coordinate online registration. There’s nothing worse than getting ready to kick off your event and suddenly the screen goes black. Imagine the horror.
Why It’s Important to have a Tech Savvy Event Planner
What happens on stage…doesn’t stay on stage, unfortunately. You have an audience expecting a flawless presentation and so you can’t leave that to chance. Here’s why it’s important to hire the right event planner with technical knowledge.
We Ask the Right Prerequisite Questions
When we meet to discuss your event, we know what to ask. We’re able to assess the technical needs, coordinate the right vendors, and ultimately create safe plans in place to prepare for the worst.
We Know What Looks and Sounds Best
Instead of worrying about the technical details (and speaking a language you don’t understand), we help to understand your audience/event and recommend the right volume, the optimal aspect ratio for your screens, etc. Plus we coordinate that with the slideshow presenter so we know that everything will look and sound it’s best on the big day.
We Find the Right Venue
Turns out that location, capacity, and budget aren’t the only factors when trying to determine a venue. Based on your technical needs, we can help find the right venue that has the necessary technical setup so we can set up the stage properly, music, lights, and more.
