    Event Management - Enjoying the Show! Part 9 of 9

    Tracy Garrity, Event Producer, concludes her 9-part series on producing exceptional events and event management, insight for the Marketing and Sales Leader.

    When I first started in this industry, I had a very wise boss who told me that by the time a good Producer arrives on-site, there is nothing for them to do but sit back and enjoy the show.  “You are the guy who brings the ice to the party,” he told me. “Everything else is ready to go.  It’s the last thing you need and the one thing everyone else forgets.”

    Event Production: 5 Promises to Expect - Part 7 of 9

    This is Part 7 (5 Promises to Expect) in an 9-part series on creative event production by expert event producer Tracy Garrity. When I buy anything, it is critically important that I understand exactly what I’m buying. I want to know what it’s made of, how long it will last and what maintenance is required.

    If it allows for customization, I want to know how much input I have and what are the approval points along the way. I want to understand how much it costs, all inclusive, and when I can have it. The more the item costs, the more due diligence I’m willing to put into the purchasing decision.

    As an informed buyer, it is my responsibility to ferret out this information, weigh it against competitive products and then assess how much I really need it. I want to make sure that I’m getting what I need – for the greatest value.

    Best Event Production Companies: What's Inside? Part 1 of 9

    I've asked Tracy Garrity, a colleague and an exceptional Event Planner, to write a series of 9 guest blogs on working with the best event production companies in the industry. When you have the best event production company working for you, it gives you the freedom to take care of other priorities. But how do you know that you have the best?  Below is the first in an 9-Part Series.

    Finding the right production company is a critical first step in putting together a successful meeting.  There are a lot of good production companies out there.  How do you determine which one is right for you?

    Begin with the end in mind. What will make the event successful in your mind, your boss’s mind and the minds of the attendees?  Is there more than one audience?  What do they need to learn, believe, feel and embrace when they leave the experience?  You want to find a production company that will get in the trenches and work with you to achieve those goals.

This is part 4 of a 9-part series on effective event management by our guest bloggers.
