Event design and event planning work hand in hand to deliver a successful event. Event design is about bringing your event to life with appropriate colours, themes, seating, etc, whereas event planning co-ordinates the logistic elements and budget management.
We are meticulous about keeping track of everything we need to spend money on. This is done by constant monitoring and updating Spread sheets knowing where to prioritise spending and keeping aside a budget to cater for emergency contingencies.
We consider the location of the venue, the size and capacity of venue needed for the number of guests, facilities provided, parking, technical needs and budget constraints.
Whilst this obviously depends on the size and nature of the event, we’d always advise you to start putting plans in place as early as possible. At certain times of year certain venues may need to be booked well in advance, as too with reputable suppliers and vendors.
