3 Ways to Stand Out from Event Competition

If you’re looking for ways to stand out from the Orlando event planning competition, look no further. We at Fun Planners are here to help you find out the best products, plans, and activities to help you host your next event.

Social Media

In order to showcase the cool carnival rides, games, and more that you will have at your next event, you’ll want to encourage your audience to share on their individual social media channels. This will reach a wider audience without having to spend all of your planning budget. You can also start social media pages for your event so you can turn the reach on the Internet to guests at your event.

Equipment

At Fun Planners, we believe in only having the best rides, activities, and games at any event. That’s why we love to partner with Orlando event planning agents. Whether you’re looking for inflatables for a birthday party, team bonding exercises for a corporate event, or just carnival rides for your town’s fall festival, we have everything you’ll need.

Have Fun

A surefire way to get your event off on the right foot is to keep in mind the one reason everyone goes to events: to have fun. When you keep this mind, you will have a better understanding of what people are looking for. They want to make memories and they want to enjoy it with people they know, people they don’t know, and people they are bound to meet. Customer service can go along way for event planners, and if you’re thoughtful and listen to what your audience wants, your event is bound to gain some traction.

How Storytelling Can Help Your Event Planning

The key to every great event is a great story. Every event manager wants their guests to feel welcome, to have a great time, and to never forget any aspect of the night. What’s one way to do that, you ask? Creating a great story to go along with your event.

Themes
We’ve all heard how important themes can be for an event. It sets the tone and the mood for the night ahead. Whether it’s a corporate event, birthday party, or anniversary, themes are detrimental to the success of your event. Is a holiday coming up, is there a trend sweeping the nation? These are all questions you should be asking yourself and your Orlando event management team.

Make it Relatable

One of the worst things you could do when planning an event is not listening to your audience. Your audience, at the end of the day, are the ones that will be snapping, sharing, and tweeting their experience. You want to make sure that everyone at the party knows the theme, feels accepted, and is there to have a great time. You can do this by sending out invites ahead of time, laying out the theme to employees and/ or volunteers and to make sure you stand out just as much as the guests!

Have the Right Equipment

With the right equipment, any event can make a splash. Whether it’s inflatables, pool tables, bouncy houses, or more, Fun Planners can help you take your event to the next level. Every event need games, activities, and entertainment to keep the audience paying attention. Opt for the more unique and interesting games, activities, and more that you can find in our catalog.

How Volunteering Can Help You Start Event Planning

For any Orlando event management team, volunteering is the easiest and smartest way to help out in the community. As an added bonus, volunteering can catapult your company through brand awareness, acquired skill, and improved decision-making skills.

We all know how much expertise means in an industry like event planning, if you don’t have experience, skills, and the ability to multitask in a fast-paced environment, clients are not afraid to look the other way. Volunteering in your community can be the freeway for networking, for growing relationships, and retaining work ethic. Most clients look for event planners with great reviews and an outstanding reputation. When you put all of these together, you have an event planning powerhouse.

If an organization hears about how great their last event was, they often ask “who planned it?” Chances are, they have an event coming up that needs to wow their boss. Word of mouth is a key marketing asset that can help your team get recognized, contacted, and eventually hired. Volunteering is not only about growing your own business, however. Every organization has a tie to their local community and a great way to team build, even for an event planning company, can be done through local volunteer opportunities.

We realize this isn’t always the easiest thing to do. With busy schedules, existing clients, and future events, sometimes it’s difficult to find time to give back or volunteer. It’s important to keep in mind, however, that it doesn’t have to be a huge volunteer event. Any opportunity counts and is a chance to get in front of the clients you’re looking for and to build your portfolio.

Whether you’re an organization looking for unique activities to help with team-building or an Orlando event management team needing to host an interactive, fun, and different event, we are here to help you. As your one-stop shop for every game, carnival ride, and activity out there, we can help bring new life to your volunteer or corporate event.

Ways to Stretch Your Event Budget

As an event planner, you may constantly ask yourself, “How can I make the most of my budget?” We all know that attendees have certain expectations that need to be met, and although smaller events can give you bang for your buck, sometimes as your events grow, so does your wallet. To better help you budget, your Orlando event planning experts at Fun Planners are here to provide you with some ways to supersize your event without supersizing your wallet.

Get Creative with Your Space

Although Florida can be hot, as we get into the fall and winter months, it’s the best time to be outside. Instead of immediately renting a hall or a convention center, opt for an outdoor area. They tend to be cheaper, and hey, nothing says Fall in Florida like a cool, crisp outdoor event.

Don’t Serve a Full Meal

Eliminating the traditional meal service can help you save some room in your wallet. There’s a trend going around across the country, and especially in corporate, sporting, and various other events: appetizers. Appetizers are an event planner’s best friend; they’re cheap, there is enough of them, and you don’t have to sit down to eat them. For networking events, these are a cheaper alternative and gives time to mingle and be merry. For sporting events, no fan cheers while sitting! Appetizers are a win-win for everyone.

Use Sponsors
Using sponsors is one way to keep your budget and your wallet happy. Sponsors not only offer a fun and unique way to market events, but it also leaves it open to networking, mingling, and an overall positive aspect for your attendees. Finding local sponsors is rarely difficult, as the small business and entrepreneurial industry are popular in the Central Florida area.

When in doubt, Fun Planners can be your one-stop shop for fun, interactive, and unique ways to host an event. From top-notch audio-visual equipment to custom branding, and the best of the best in games, you know you can trust us. As your Orlando event planning experts, we’ll be sure to turn your event from drab, to budget-friendly and fab!

Food Trends For Your Next Event

One easy way to spice up your fall events is with food. Paying close attention to food trends is the best way to integrate a fun twist for your attendees. As your Orlando event management experts, Fun Planners is your one-stop shop for creating and hosting the best corporate, networking, birthday, or team-building event in the Central Florida area. Here are some tips on how to make food trends a staple in your upcoming events.

Raw Vegetables

So long are the days of finger foods like french fries and chicken nuggets. Nowadays, conscientious-eating is a part of any household. Event attendees are paying close attention to what they’re eating and most of the time, they’d choose something fresh over something fried. To ensure that your event has food for everyone, opt for an equal balance of health-related foods and traditional snacks.

Restaurant-Worthy Foods

Along with health-conscious foods becoming popular among event goers, is the need for other quality meals. Attendees are looking for out-of-the-box delicious foods that make them feel like they’re at a top-notch restaurant. Opt for foods that are made locally while keeping an eye on farm-to-table restaurants that are looking to sponsor or market for varying events.

Moving Meals

A fun, interactive way to incorporate new food trends is to make it more interactive. Attendees often like to see how their meals are made. Try integrating cooking demonstrations or even “fresh food here” signs to let people know that what they’re eating was made fresh with quality in mind.

As your source for Orlando event management, Fun Planners is dedicated to giving you the best advice to creating and hosting interactive and unique events.

How to: Plan Your Event on a Budget

The most crucial step to event planning is creating the budget. The budget for your event is the tell-all of your event, are there going to be 50 balloons? Will there be a bouncy castle? Are you going to have those arcade machines that every kid wanted when they were little? All of these questions are what you need to ask yourself in order to get started. The experts of Orlando event planning are here to walk you through the steps to the perfect event on a budget.

What Are You Budgeting For?
The first and most important question to ask yourself is what kind of party are you throwing? Is it a corporate event, is it a bar mitzvah, a wedding, a town fair? All of these have completely different budgets, and even different attractions and activities that range in accessibility and of course, price. Start by making a list of what events and activities will cost money. Include descriptions, estimated and actual costs, and the amount needed. This will give you the perfect idea of what and how much you will spend for the event.

Researching Costs
Now that you have a rough idea of the supplies you will need for your event, it’s important to find the right price. At Fun Planners, we pride ourselves on being affordable, reliable, and honest. We also have a plethora of activities for every event! From arcade games to carnival games, to even team bonding exercises, everything you need can be found at a decent and enjoyable price.

Having a Back-Up
Living in the Sunshine State and can sometimes be unpredictable. It’s important to set aside some time to figure out what the cost of cancellation would be. Although the worst case scenario rarely happens, it’s better to be prepared for what may come. Asking yourself, “How much will this set me back?” “What unexpected costs can come from this event?” When it comes to safe, effective, and budget-friendly event planning, it’s better to be prepared than not.
