Stress. Right now, standing in the middle of the conference venue, you have this in epic amounts. It’s the annual conference today and there will be 300 people in this room in less than 4 hours. Everything is unravelling at an alarming pace. The event programmes haven’t arrived. You arranged for these to be delivered to the venue because the artwork wasn’t submitted on time. Carol, your assistant, forgot to do this because she was busy cutting out the place cards and stuffing delegate bags.
You turn your attention to setting the tables as there is little you can do about that now. It is then you discover that the place cards are wonky and items are missing from the bags. Just when you think nothing else could go wrong, the receptionist calls you in a panic. The postcode was wrong on the invitations – a coach of delegates has arrived at the Royal Hotel in Dartford instead of the Royal Hotel in Derby.
To make the best of a bad situation, you stick the place cards down with sticky tape and direct the delegates in using Google maps on your phone. You gave up on the programmes arriving an hour ago.
You try to set up the laptop and projector. The projector connects to the laptop with no problems. Result! At least that has gone to plan. Now, you need to run through the presentation. Carol isn’t good at PowerPoint so she asked Nigel in HR to put it together. Nigel is pretty good (although a little bit heavy with the clip art) so you don’t have any worries.
Or do you?
You open the presentation and find that it is one hot mess. You call Nigel who explains he gave it to his apprentice to do. You speak to the apprentice who admits they have never used PowerPoint before. Faaaaabulous. You hang up and cobble something together using 4 fonts and 12 colours and hope no one notices the lack of content.
The delegates start to arrive and the conference gathers its own pace. You try to get in touch with Carol but your phone is starting to go flat. It’s vibrating around in circles on the table making noises like a dying bee. There is nothing you can do now except hide behind the curtain at the front of the stage and pray for a power cut.
Now, to help you avoid this unwanted nightmare scenario, we have a full event support service. Need a venue? We’ll find it. Stuffed bags? Not a problem. We can even sort out your PowerPoint. You won’t have to worry about wonky place cards either. From planning the event to providing the artwork, to beautiful banners and awards, you can consider it done. We also have photography and video covered so you can remember what a fantastic worry-free and wonderful event it was. Even Carol can have the night off.
