I mentioned event management companies
because most events I have
attended had them. Just a thought. I dont even know how much they
charge. If we plan to have it managed by a professional company, I
could find out.
Would appreciate that peice of info from you SB. It will help us
streamline our idea/plans.
The advantage would be that there is a strong business support backup.
Things like sending out mailers, accepting registrations, collecting
cheques and banking them, keeping track of budgets, making sure there
are adequate trained personnel at the venue (pretty young girls for
registrations, giving out the agenda, cds etc. -- every event has
them), coording with the venue owners for seating, arrangements,
lighting, OHPs, etc.
Your inputs are welcome indeed. So....since you have been kind enough
on taking things forward on those lines could you take the trouble to ge
the details from the Event Managers and let us know about the same.
We need to start evaluating all our options starting now Luggers.
If we dont have an event managemnt company doing the above, then we
should have enough infrastructure and support system to do that type
of work. I think you are talking of workshops and seminars where a
large number of people would come over.
We will work those modalities out, everything depends on the Resources
at hand and the Commercial Backing we are able to garner.
(Mind you, I am not saying that volunteers from ILUG cannot do it,
what I am saying is that there are hundreds of boring jobs which are
to be done and these companies do it all the time, so for them it is
point noted SB...:)).
