The Power of To-Do Lists

To-do lists are imperative for any Orlando event planning agent. A list of things that need to be done in advance can be the difference between having an event take the world by storm or end in disaster. To learn more about what should be on your event planning to-do list, keep reading.

4-6 Months Before Event

It’s important that four to six months before your event, you have the event goals, objectives, date, and venue established. If you don’t have the finish venue yet, keep a running list of backup plans so you don’t end up with an event and no venue. It’s important that you have an idea of how many event managers, committees, and volunteers you will need to set off the event. This will help you develop the brand of your event, the publicity you want to surround the event, and more.

2 Months Before Event

The two-month mark before your event, you should be sending reminders to your guests. Along with reminders, you will want to make sure you are briefing any of your hosts, greeters, or volunteers; you can do this by planning run-throughs so your team will know exactly what time, plans, and events are in place throughout the night. This is the time you will start planning for photo, interview, and video opportunities as well. You will want to discuss and plan how you want your event to be shared and executed over social media.

Event Day

The day of the event, you want to make sure all of your ducks in a row so everything goes swimmingly. Check in with each committee, each volunteer, host, or speaker to make sure they are prepared. You can provide them with print outs of their speeches, their job duties, and a timesheet for better record keeping and to keep everyone on track at all times throughout the event.

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.

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.

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.

How Live Streaming Can Boost Your Events

If you’re looking for ways to spice up your Florida corporate events, look no further. We have your answer and it’s live streaming. Yes, as we transition into a completely technologically-advanced day in age, we must adapt our events in order to stay ahead. Here are some tips on how to make the most of these new technological advancements for your upcoming events

So Long Television, Hello Livestream

Recent research says that the majority of users in the United States, about 56 percent, watch live-streamed content at least once a month. With 48 percent of those users watching live streams weekly. Unlike television, live streaming seems to make users feel more like active participants. With many expressing a new sense of keeping up-to-date and informed.

Internet users are now demanding for their content to be available anytime they want, on whatever device they are on. Rather than the idea of sitting down at a specific time in order to watch something on live TV. From Facebook to Twitter, and now Instagram, videos and “stories” are finding their way to the heart of any event-goer.

One Stream vs. Many Streams

When it comes to the new age of technology and event planning, it’s important to know where your audience is, when marketing your event and also when hosting your event. Knowing their social media habits can also benefit how you reach that audience and in what ways you will attract attendees. Instead of sticking to one social media platform, take into consideration using multiple platforms. From Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook stories, to Twitter moments and live streaming capabilities, your options are endless!

Although live streaming is changing the way people attend and even market events, it’s still all about atmosphere and adapting to your audience. As your Florida corporate event experts, we’re here to give you some insight as to how to make the best of any event.

3 Event Themes for Any Party

As everyone knows, themes are the cornerstone of the event planning process. From trends that are shaking up the industry to what society believes is what is cool and unique, it’s important for event planners to keep these theme ideas in mind. We’re here to give your Orlando event planning company the tips they’ll need to have the best-themed party on this side of town!

Top Secret Entry

A unique idea for a theme this year is to keep the event exclusive. If you keep locations discreet with hush-hush instructions, people are more likely to be interested in your event and will be telling all their friends about it! As a bonus, revealing your location a day or two before it’s set to happen will make event-goers antsier and will heighten interest in those looking to attend!

Gather Around a Campfire

For smaller businesses, something as simple as a campfire session for your employees can help team building. Find a night that works for employees and leadership and take turns telling stories around the fire. They can be related to the workplace or just interesting things about their life. This will encourage everyone to become closer and get to each other better, and what could make an employer happier than that?

Switch up the Mundane Lunchtime

Rather than heading to a local Orlando grill, try creating a space in your office to hold a small dance party. Serve spritzer and finger foods and have everyone take a moment from their busy days to relax and have fun. Not only will this boost overall morale of the team, you will also be known as the “cool office” in town.

How to Make Your Event More Interactive

When it comes to Florida corporate events, Fun Planners has all the answers. From our stock of interactive games to custom branding, and tips on marketing your event, we’ve got it all. Check out these cool and unique ways to help make your corporate event and attendees more lively.

Consider Your Audience

Is your audience younger? Are they older? Is this for an intimate celebration or a bigger networking event? Is team-bonding one of the main goals of your event? These are all questions that event planners have to ask. These answers will give you a better idea of what props, what games, and what type of atmosphere you want to create.

Encourage Memories

No matter what individual goals are present for an organization’s event, they almost always have at least one common goal: to be memorable. One simple way to encourage your guests to make memories is with a photobooth. As one of our most popular rentals at Fun Planners, photo booths are a great way to get attendees to participate. As an added bonus, you can encourage them to share their memories and their photobooth pictures on social media using a common hashtag. This will not only make your event more interactive, but it doubles as a great marketing tool!

Throw a Raffle

Guests of all ages agree that one important way to garner interactivity at your corporate events is with a good, old-fashioned raffle. Many people believe that raffles and giveaway need to be huge, but that’s not always the case. In fact, raffles don’t always have to be a huge part of your budget. Gift cards, branded merch, or small things you can buy wholesale often work just as well.

When it comes to planning any Florida corporate event, it’s important to keep in mind that events should be fun and unique. Some small ways that you can create a positive atmosphere at any event is often by making it interactive. From team-building icebreakers to photobooths, and traditional carnival games, Fun Planners can help any organization put on the event of the year.

3 Innovative Trends in Event Tech

It’s no surprise that the event planning industry has recently taken a dip in the technology field as well. When it comes to enhancing events and making them more memorable for event-goers, it’s important that Orlando event planners keep in mind these valuable trends that can take any event from drab to fab.

Eco-Friendly Deals

The best way to encourage a more “green” event is to incorporate more digital favors. Get rid of the swag, the glitter, and confetti that often clutter the venue floors. Instead, opt for great lighting techniques, e-gift card raffles, and more that way you’re still creating an immersive and positive experience for attendees, but you’re also diminishing your environmental impact!

Live Streaming is the New Thing

At this point, we’ve all dabbled in a little bit of live streaming. Did you know it could also be a great way to market your events too? Live streaming allows attendees to share real-time memories with their social media profiles. Not only can this garner people to share, comment, and like, it also is a great way to get more exposure for your company!

Crowdsourced Content

Putting like-minded people at the forefront of your event is something that many Orlando event planners forget. If you’re holding a conference or even a concert, incorporating user-generated content is a great way to be seen on social media and the Internet. Include a screen where people can ask questions or a live feed of tweets that use similar or relevant hashtags. Whether a big or small event, user-generated content is one of the simplest and most effective ways to get more brand exposure!

However, businesses of any size can put on events that are memorable, entertaining, and well-planned. Here are our Orlando event management tips for small businesses!

Who’s Going?

It’s important for any event planner to consider who will be attending their event. Before you start planning, the wants, needs, and desires of the target demo should be clearly defined. Having your event-goers in mind can jump-start the rest of the process and can get you started on thinking about entertainment, food, rides, games, and more!

It’s in the Details

The most important part of your event, arguably, is in the details. From lighting to music to transportation, every planner wants things to go off with no troubles at all! That’s why the details are some of the items that you’ll want to check off your list first. Always be sure to check that everything is working for the event, keep back up batteries, flashlights, and anything you’ll need handy!
