What to look for in event suppliers | part 3

How to choose partners that set YOU up for success

Choosing the right suppliers for your event is key. Your choice in partners impacts more than just your budget; it affects the look and feel of your event, the experience your clients and visitors will have, your time-schedule and maybe, just maybe, even your ability to sleep at night. In short: your partners play a significant role in the success of your event and, by extension, yours. Here are three tips from a centennial event supplier, that are meant to help you choose the partners that set both you and your event up for success.

Our top three tips for the selecting the perfect event suppliers:

Choose a partner:

  1. that will give you the best possible advice and is focussed on your goals
  2. that you can trust to deliver a safe solution and to get the job done – the show must go on
  3. that will take time off your hands, so that you can excel in what you do

Do this, and you will see your chances of success grow exponentially.

Expect involvement from your suppliers

Hosting or organizing an event takes a lot of time. Choose suppliers that really know this, that are available at all times and that are willing to take work off your hands. You have enough to do and to take care of, so you want suppliers that behave like partners. Ideally, they should offer you as close to a one-stop shop experience as possible.

Whoever organizes an event, has to overcome numerous obstacles, ranging from dealing with a large number of stakeholders and suppliers to logistical and budgetary challenges. Your ideal suppliers know this and will offer to help you with as much as possible. If they don’t show this intent from the get-go, you are unlikely to receive anything more than basic service. We feel there is a BIG difference between answering a request from a quote with standard products, or instantly knowing what the needs are behind the inquiry, responding with questions, adapting the offer accordingly and advising you on related matters, without you asking

How this relates to your venue

Ask for turnkey project management
Another way a supplier can help you, at least in the field op temporary buildings, is by offering turnkey delivery and project management. We always offer to act as one of your main contractor, which means that we are also responsible for things like:

  • Sourcing the right suppliers for all materials
  • Coordinating and executing site preparations
  • Logistical planning and coordination
  • Full building site management
  • On-site project management (incl. H&S officers)
  • Delivering a specialized building crew, supported by local workers
  • Arrange all required tools and equipment
  • Detailed project planning and progress reporting

In short: while we ensure that everything is arranged to the last detail, you can focus on your role and the success of your event.
