Ahhh. So you were the luck of the draw, the “chosen one.” Your boss has just assigned you with the task of planning your next company conference or training. Congrats, but since you are reading this, I can literally feel your hesitance through the screen. You are probably thinking, “Great, WHAT NOW!?”
From experience I can assure you that not only is your boss counting on you to choose the perfect venue, but he/she is also counting on you to choose a venue which falls within your allotted budget. If this is your first time planning a meeting, I will also tell you this, get used to the title of “miracle worker”, because sometimes event planners are expected to squeeze blood out of a turnip.
Let me also tell you, and not because I work here, but if you are looking for the best bang for your buck, as in the right venue at the right price, you are looking right at it.
So, put your thinking cap on, grab huge amounts of your favorite caffeinated beverage, and prepare for the most time consuming, and possibly the most attention to detail experience of your professional career. For the record, not all meeting planners are official “event planners”. We recognize that a good majority of our planners already wear many hats at their current jobs, and that this is just an extra task piled on their plate.
I am going to post a more lengthy explanation later regarding all of the “how to’s”, but regardless of your current job title, if you have just been asked to take on the monumental task of planning an event for your company, you are going to need a friend to help you along the way. If you have chosen our facility, say hello to me, your new bff. Every event planner needs a side kick, the person who walks them through all stages from beginning to end.
I’ve got you. I won’t just assist prior to your event. I will be with you, onsite, every step of the way!
Take a look at our conference and event tab, solidify your preferred event date, and give me a shout! I look forward to speaking with you regarding sleeping room and classroom availability, as well as meals and special event ideas towards making your meeting a huge success.
See you soon!
