What is our Event PA service and how does it work for you?
Before we get into the advantages of hiring Lisa Loves Events for your next function and what makes this “Event PA” service of benefit to my clients, let’s take a look at the reasons why we tend to engage a specialist in a particular field.
SPECIALIST V DIY
Most will relate to this scenario! You decide to freshen up your home and decide to paint it yourself…because how hard can it be? Not to mention the cost savings. You head off to the paint store and you buy the paint, brushes, drop sheets and the bits you need to get the job done.
You start prepping the job and figure out that the time needed is bit longer then you thought, but you keep going. Then the painting gets started. Again time and management of the task starts to get out of hand, the stress levels rise, life gets in the way and you either finish the job unhappy with the quality of the end result (because in the right light you can see the spot that wasn’t done to your satisfaction and bugs you no end), or you give up and call in the professionals. You do manage to achieve the end result you wanted, but the cost has been high (money, time & stress)! Either way you are now are left unsatisfied.
EVENT MANAGEMENT SPECIALISTS
As an event management professional, my service is no different to any other specialist. I specialise in events and functions, and work with and alongside all manner of contractors and vendors including florists, stylists, caterers, venue managers, lighting technicians…the list goes on. But at the heart of my abilities is time-management, organisation and a flare for pulling multiple elements together. This is why it is of benefit to you - it can save you money, time and of course, a stress-free experience as the client.
MY EVENT PA SPECIALISATION
There are lots of different specialist services within this event management industry, but I have my own specialisation. Think of me as your Personal Assistant for your parties, celebration dinners, weddings, christenings, baby showers, business events, gala events…any occasion!
This PA Event services comes in many forms. You may just need me to do an assessment of venues, locations or extra’s to help you make the right decisions for your function. Perhaps you have made most of the decisions and done the planning, and just need the help to pull it all together and co-ordinate on the day so you can kick back and spend time with your guests. Maybe you are just feeling overwhelmed with the whole process and the thought of even trying to start to make the first decision is just too much, and you want someone to handle it all for you!
In general we are time poor so having someone to take the reins and arrange your event or function can and will save you time and money in the long run. How many times have you heard someone say they just had to have a particular centrepiece or decoration only to find out it doesn’t fit or you’re not allow to install it at the venue.
CONSULATION AND COSTS
No client is the same, and no job is ever the same, so it’s important to consult with clients to get a true understanding of the scope of their requirements. My initial consultation is offered for free and whilst I can provide general proposals and packages, realistically there is no standard pricing to apply to every job. Additionally, you tend to get cost savings by getting a quote that is tailored to your needs.
Let’s break down one main function that my Event PA service can help you with On-the-Day-Co-ordination. This service can save you time, money, and frustration (not to mention save relationships and friendships!). Most importantly, this service can ease your stress leading up to and during your event, and allow you to actually enjoy yourself!
How many times have you heard this horror story? The bride had her initial directions for decorations revised and not by her. Unfortunately, the supplier doing the styling set-up decided that they thought the flowers looked better somewhere else, or the helper ran out of time setting things up because they didn’t realise how long it was going to take, and they to needed to get ready for the wedding or function themselves?
Your Event PA on the day has the appropriate meetings and site inspections, and asks the right questions to ensure you get what you want. I’ll sort out your run-sheet, make contact with all vendors and contracted services, liaise with them prior to the event, and oversee the set up. All your needs are discussed and all concerns that may arise are managed before they become a problem on the day. Of course there are times when things don’t go to plan on the day, but I’m there to step-in and solve issues as they occur, so that you can get on with enjoying a magical event you dreamed of.
My Event PA service gives you confidence to know that all will be taken care of, and every vendor, contactor and venue is assured that the event or function will run smoothly.
