I recently started my new job as the event designer and planner for my company, which was a big surprise to me as well as a personal challenge I was more than willing to take on! I had been desiring to do something new with my time and this was going to be that which I had hoped for. For our first conference I decided that I would go with the the woodlands conference center. This place is exactly what our employees heading to the conference needed. This place is amazingly beautiful and has everything that they needed; with a resort and a golf course giving us everything that we could hope for, I knew that everyone was going to have an amazing time staying here. Our conference was going to be a huge hit with our company and that, to me, was more than I could ask for; I needed this challenge in my life!
One of the most difficult aspects of being an event designer andmanager is that finding the right venues for your conferences and events. You want a place that isn’t too over priced but you need to know what sort of event you’re going to be running. You should know exactly who is going to be present at the event, what sort of work that they do and what sort of expectations they might have from your event. I’ve also found that a contributing factor is finding a proper catering company. Food is everything for any event, you can lose a crowd quickly if you have some terrible food. I have seen entire halls evacuate in an hour’s time simply because the food was atrocious. Who wants to stick around for an event that can’t even deliver quality food? Not me, I know, so I always ensure the venue has great food.
