May 6 • Corporate Events • 620 Views • No Comments on What To Consider When Choosing An Event Management Agency

You can’t overestimate the importance of partnering with the right Event Management Agency. All companies are not created equal and choosing the wrong Event Management Agency can mean all sorts of problems.
Here are the things we reckon you need to be looking for.

1- GENERAL EXPERIENCE

There’s a new trend in events at the minute that sees anyone who has ever helped organize a school event or a teen disco deciding they’re an ‘event manager’. Add to that the fact that it’s very quick and easy to have a slick looking website and you’ve a recipe for a very effective con.

2- RELEVANT EXPERIENCE

It’s quite common for Event Management companies to specialize in certain areas. It’s less common for Event Management companies to be brilliant in all areas. Look for an Event Management Agency with specific expertise in what you need.

3- QUALIFICATIONS

There are courses in Event Management now. You can actually go to college now and study Event Management. If you were looking for an accountant you’d want them to have studied accountancy, right? If you were looking for an SEO company you’d want people who had studied digital marketing, right? It may be worth checking if the Event Management Agency you’re speaking to actually have staff who has studied in the area.

4- TESTIMONIALS

Any Event Management Agency doing good work and interested in doing more should have testimonials from happy clients on their website, in their marketing material etc… Professional Event Management Agency should be actively directing you towards them but, if they’re not, don’t be shy about asking.
Bottom Line: Look beyond the marketing speech and fancy suits. Look into what they say they’ve done before and who they say they’ve done it for.
