Event management is the application of project management to the creation and development of meetings, festivals, galas, fundraisers, celebrations and other types of events. Event management involves studying the goals and objectives of the event, identifying the target audience, devising the event concept, planning the logistics and coordinating the technical aspects before actually executing the modalities of the proposed event.
Excellent research reduces risk. The better research conducted prior to an event, the more likely the event will match the planned outcome. During the research period, we can assist the event organizer in a feasibility study utilizing tools like pre-event surveys, identifying stakeholder’s desired outcomes, and a SWOT analysis.
At the beginning of the design phase, we will meet with the event organizer to discuss the concept of the event. The Technisch Creative team will then continue the creative development process, including site selection, décor, technical production, entertainment and all other supporting components.
During the planning stage, we will conduct a site inspection, if needed, to thoroughly understand venue capabilities and restrictions. Details to be considered will include capacity, catering operation/support, equipment, utilities, location, parking, medical/first aid, ADA compliance, and other amenities. Our production team will also draft a timeline and production schedule for the event.
Each event produced by Technisch Creative, regardless of size, is coordinated by a team member of Technisch Creative, not a sub-contractor, which assures quality and accuracy in the end result. When on site, the Technisch Creative event manager will oversee every component of the event including set up, registration, catering, VIP services, audio/visual, ground transportation, and volunteer coordination.
At the completion of each event, we will follow up to evaluate the program and identify successes and areas for improvement. The evaluation can be conducted in different methods ranging from a casual meeting with the organizer, to a formal survey distributed to all attendees.
