4imprint White Paper and Podcast Released:
Effective Events Planning
Blue Paper® features tips and tricks to making your company event a success
(OSHKOSH, Wis.)— Promotional products retailer, 4imprint releases its most recent podcast and Blue Paper (its own version of a white paper), entitled Tips and Tools for Effective Event Planning.
Company-wide events, no matter a business’ industry or sector, can be well worth the effort, but require a great deal of planning and resources. Many events can be coordinated in-house, but at times it may be necessary to hire an event planner. This Blue Paper provides details as to the circumstances where a professional is most effective as well as tips to undertaking event planning internally.
When a company tackles its own events, it should begin with identifying the event goals and measurement indicators for its success. In their book, Event Planning Made Easy, Paulette Wolf, Jodi Wolf and Donielle Levine say the first step to planning a successful event is to establish the five W’s and the “how”:
1. Who are your guests?
2. What is your event?
3. When is your event?
4. Where is your event?
5. Why is this event happening?
6. How much money is in the budget?
From there, the real work begins and can easily take as much as 18 months to plan when considering location scheduling, vendor availability and entertainment contracting.
“Our customers use events for a variety of purposes,” states 4imprint Vice President of Human Resources Mary Curtin. “From corporate staff picnics to product launches to tradeshows, events are integral to not only sales, but employee satisfaction and recruitment efforts. This Blue Paper helps businesses, of any size or industry, improve their events to positively impact their bottom line.”
