WHAT IS THE ROLE OF AN EVENT MANAGER?
Event managers have the important job of ensuring that their client’s event runs as smoothly as it possibly can. Based on their client’s interests, they hire and supervise staff, reserve one or many locations, arrange catering services, organize entertainment, and set up other accommodations for the event. Professional event management will set an objective as to how they want your event to be executed or accomplished.
From there, the event manager meets with professional organizers, vendors, and other event specialists to develop an agenda for the event within the client’s budget.

There are a wide variety of benefits offered by utilizing an experienced event management company such as BConfident.

All these ideas are then put together and combined into a strategic, clear, and detailed proposal for you to consider and present to your team.
Venue finding is the first step of the process. You need to know what type of event you are looking to arrange – a conference, product launch, exhibition, Christmas party, Channel Partner meeting, etc. You also need to know the ideal location which will depend on where your audience is coming from – if they are flying in from abroad you will need to be near an airport. If they are driving you may want to be near a motorway. If you are looking for a quiet country venue then your requirements here will be different and accessibility won’t be as important as the surroundings. Then you need to know how many people are expected to attend the event and how many function rooms you need. If it’s a conference you may want to consider breakout rooms but if it’s an outside summer party you will want a building big enough to accommodate guests on a rainy day or if the weather is better even consider a rooftop garden event.
You should also consider the catering – do you need a buffet, sit-down meal, braai, etc? Also, there are a wide variety of food requirements, cultural preferences, and allergies that must be instructed to any caterers. Also what onsite facilities are required?
– A golf course
– grounds for activities etc.
