Using an event planner takes away stress and worry, and gives you peace of mind to enjoy your event.
How early do I need to book entertainment to get the act that I want?
Entertainment that is popular and good value for your money, will book up to 6 months in advance. It's best to get your main act booked as soon as possible.
What is the biggest mistake organisers make when planning an event?
They don't consider their audience and the event agenda. Timing and taste are the keys to good entertainment. Make sure you're confident in both.
How much should my entertainment cost?
There are many variables, but 30 to 80 BHD per person, per hour is a good guide.
How do I decide what type of entertainment to choose for my event?
The first thing to do is to analyse what the purpose of the entertainment is. Does the entertainment need to be engaging, or is it something simple on in the background? Once you decide that, the rest is easier.
Whats the difference between activities & entertainment?
Activities are things that your guests do, and entertainment is something that your guests watch.
Should I include activities in my event as well as entertainment?
This is always a tricky situation and requires careful consideration. You must not "overstimulate" your guests with so many things to the extent it is no longer enjoyable. The best thing to do is have everyone watch the main entertainment attraction at one time and then afterwards have other activities going on at the same time.
With a limited budget should I spend more on decor or entertainment?
This is easy. Spend more on entertainment and activities and less on decor. Guests will certainly appreciate the decor treatment but will definitely remember the fun they had on stage playing family feud.
What's an example of an activity that 300 guests could do at the same time?
Having interesting party hats at an event is a creative activity that guests can also take home as a souvenir. And, it can be customised to suit the theme or corporate colours and paired with a photo corner as well.
How far in advance of my event date should I book my venue?
It really depends on the type of event. Eid, Christmas and annual summer events can usually be booked 11 months in advance. The ideal time to book your venue is at least 6 months before your event, so that you have ample time to get everything perfect.
What is the biggest mistake when choosing a venue?
Underestimating hoe much space will be required. There is nothing worse than an overcrowded room once all of the activities and entertainment are in place.
What is the biggest mistake people make when planning their companies event?
They usually don't give much thought to the event agenda which results in guests sitting around awkwardly with nothing to do. Timing at events is critical.
