What are the Benefits of Outsourcing Your Event Planning?

Darlene Lyons

Planning an event can be stressful, and it often involves many questions: Where should it be held? What kind of food do we need? How will people register? It can also be time-consuming, especially if you’re trying to plan an event for hundreds or even thousands of people! That’s when turning to experts in the field who offer full-service event management can be very beneficial by taking the stress and worry of planning and running the event off of your plate. 

Event planning agencies like T3 Events Group provide full-service event management to help your vision come to life and your events thrive. Keep reading to learn more about the benefits of outsourcing event planning for your next big event. 

Site Selection  - One of the first steps with any event is finding where you want to have it held. Depending on the size, you may need a massive venue or even multiple locations. And, if it’s in an area different from where most attendees are, you may also need hotels. If you have a specific theme for your event, the location can also play a major role in complementing it. Event management companies can take the stress out of finding the perfect location for the big day by completing the research and using their expertise on locations they may have previously worked with or tapping into their network of connections to find them. 

Contracts & Negotiations - Part of planning an event is creating contracts and conducting negotiations with site locations and vendors. Leave it to the event coordinator with lots of experience with event-specific contracts to complete this process! Often, well-developed event agencies, like T3 Events Group, can also have partnerships with hotels and vendors to save you money. Plus, with their experience, they have trusted vendors they know who will help make your event unforgettable. 

Branding & Design - Have a vision in mind for your theme of the event but just don’t know how to make it come to life? By creating a specific theme for the big event and designing logos and color themes to match, event planners can make the entire event feel cohesive and fit your business's branding. The event agency can also help with curating SWAG (stuff we all get). You want to make sure your event is memorable, and providing swag, such as clothing, gift bags, and mugs with the event's theme, will make attendees remember the great time they had even after it concluded. 

Registration Management - Outsourcing event management also takes the stress out of registration. Thousands of people may be trying to register, depending on your event size. There may also be specific packages or deals associated with registration, making it a time-consuming task. By outsourcing this process, the agencies may have specific software that will save you time and simplify the process. 

Food & Beverage - Food and beverage choices can also make or break an event. You want to make sure it fits your theme, is within your budget, and has options for any specific dietary restrictions that attendees may have. Having an expert in the event management field with many years of experience knows just the right vendors you want to meet the needs of your attendees at the event.

AV Management -  If your event plans to have any type of entertainment where you need audio and visual technology to make it extra exciting, then you’ll need AV management. Outsourcing to an agency brings in professionals, so you don’t have to worry about finding someone yourself, making sure everything works, and can take your event to the next level. 

Day of Staffing & Management - When it comes to the day of the event, why not spend the day enjoying it yourself and spending time with your attendees!? By hiring a full-service event planner, they will be there on the day of the event to make sure everything is running smoothly. They also will be able to provide the extra staff needed to run your event, such as at registration, help desks, set-up, break-down, serving staff, and more. 

Hybrid & Virtual Events - In the post-pandemic world, events have changed. Some people may still feel uncomfortable in large crowds or prefer attending events virtually. By creating a hybrid or an entirely virtual event, you can increase your attendance and allow those from all over the world to attend and participate. Outsourcing virtual event management to professionals in this space ensures you have the technology and skills to make sure your event happens flawlessly. 

By outsourcing your event planning – either fully or picking specific services –  you’re passing it on to experts in the field. Agencies like T3 Events Group have been planning events you have been trying to create for years. They think of minor details that may have never crossed your mind, like “how many trash cans will we need and how far apart do they need to be placed?”By not having to worry about all of the event details before, during, and after, event management agencies saves you a lot of time and allow you to enjoy the event on the day. All you have to do is share your goals for the event and give feedback on their planning so they can make your event spectacular!
