For most event organisers, when the day or evening arrives, the result of months of hard work, meticulous planning and endless calls to various companies confirming space requirements and timings, the last thing on their mind is sitting back and enjoying the fruits of their labour because they still have hours of coordinating, question answering and service nudging to get through before the event is over and they can finally relax.
It doesn’t have to be that way – as was discovered by one of our most recent Event Management clients – how? Let us explain:
Johnson Tiles are a manufacturer & supplier of ceramic and porcelain tiles to architects and designers all over the world. Sharon at Johnson Tiles organises their events carefully year on year, choosing a suitable venue, sourcing great suppliers and being there on the night to make sure it all runs nicely, to schedule and without issue.
This year, Sharon got in touch with KDM and asked us to help out by providing evening entertainment in the form of casino tables. While we were discussing the requirements we let slip that, as with many of the venues across the UK, we have first hand knowledge of and strong working relationship with her chosen venue; the Best Western Stoke-On-Trent Moat House. This led to KDM taking on a much broader role in the planning, production & management of the event.
We provided planning assistance, a complete AV set with double screens, technicians and music, pre-dinner entertainment; magicians and caricaturists, Roulette, Black Jack & Stud Poker Tables with giant props to add to the mood set by our favourite DJ and we managed the whole event from start to finish to ensure it ran beautifully, to schedule, without a hitch.
Sharon didn’t need to worry about a thing!
We plan over 500 events every year at conference venues, hotels and specialist team building activity venues across the country, so we get to know these venues and their respective spaces, accesses and conference staff pretty well.
And that’s our entire secret, that’s how we manage events so well and put our clients at ease, we’ve amassed a huge amount of knowledge and with that we can happily provide every assurance that your event will run exactly to plan.
Sharon was delighted with the success of her event, and here’s what she had to say afterwards:
“Absolutely awesome – not one single hitch, everything ran seamlessly – a great bunch of guys. My thanks to them and you, Jane.”
So, to avoid the worry of no shows, late suppliers and equipment not fitting through the door, give us a call and let us handle the details while you prepare to enjoy the event.
