If you’ve ever organized a large event, whether it be for a company or your own wedding, then you know how difficult it is to get everything planned out just right, have all the vendors show up on time, and not spend far over your allotted budget. One common misconception is that hiring an event planner will cost you lots of extra money, but many times just the opposite is the truth. Let’s examine how an event planner in Malaysia can end up saving hundreds or even thousands of dollars by using their experience and knowledge in planning your event.
An Event Planner Can Save You Time And Money With Their Connections.
An experienced event planner will have built previous relationships with hundreds of different suppliers in different niches where they have the ability to get a discount, sometimes substantial. When the average guy calls, like you for instance, you’re always going to pay full retail on everything, which can be 20 to 25% more than what and event planner could get for you. Another thing that usually happens is that the average guy is going to have to call 10 or 15 different vendors for each different product that he needs in order to find one that can supply the right product, at the right price and is available on the day of the event. On the other hand, a professional event planner in Malaysia will most likely know exactly who to call the first time.
How Do You Find The Perfect Event Planner For Your Big Party?
Depending on what kind of event that you’re going to have, you’ll want to make an effort to find people who have used planners with experience in that particular area. If it is a large corporate event that you’re planning the best resource to find a good planner would be another corporation of about the same size that has had a successful corporate event, so get on the phone and call several other businesses and get a hold of the human resources department to find out who they’ve used in the past and how happy they were with their services. It is just as important to know if there was anyone they were quite unhappy with, and why, so you can avoid the same mistake.
What To Ask A Planner During The Interview.
Start with how much in experience that they have in scheduling the kind of event that you’re going to have. Also check to see what kinds of events this particular planner specializes in, what are his fortes? Most experienced planners will have a portfolio, including pictures, that they can show you of past parties, weddings, and anniversaries that they have completed so you can have some idea. Since planning a large event is fraught full of cancellations by vendors and other suppliers ask your prospective planner how they would most likely handle such a setback and if they have backup suppliers at the ready.
Having a large corporate party, or other huge function, doesn’t have to be an overly stressful time if you find the right planner, delegate all of the small details, and spend your time overseeing and double checking everything as you go.
