Should You Hire An Event Planner?
An event planner can be worth his or her fees simply for keeping everyone else’s stress levels at bay. She will assist you in creating a plan and executing it so that your event is a success. Whether you are doing a promotion, product launch, trade show, a non-profit fundraiser, educational event, celebration or memorial, having a go-to person to oversee and coordinate your event can insure it’s a success.
Event planners can help arrange food, décor, entertainment, speakers, emcees, transportation, cleanup, security and more. They usually take a fee for the overall planning and then make a small percentage of the price of products and services. Fees vary based on the circumstances of the event.
It is a good idea to interview more than one planner. You’ll want to be able to communicate easily. Ask for references and call them! An event planner will have contacts and ideas that will make your special occasion all that it can be.
