Event hosting can be a fun way to celebrate something special or personal. It’s a way to collaborate and get together with like-minded individuals who can feed into your planning and offer solutions, options and assistance with the event you’re looking to host. But with event hosting comes the responsibility of making it a successful, memorable event for you and the attendees.To figure out what you need to do to make a “big bang” out of your event, you’ll need creativity, patience, and equitable party venues Florida accommodations.
So you have the event idea, but now it’s time to pair it with a theme. Your theme obviously needs to be geared towards the event that you’re hosting. People need to know, not just by the invitation, but when they first walk through the door, what you are all about. For example, let’s imagine you’re putting on a benefit for a local high school. You’ll want to go with the school’s colors, as well as perhaps having the lunchroom theme paired with the theme of the benefit you are supporting. Also, your vendors and entertainment should be geared towards the theme. For musical entertainment, you could try getting a local school band together to play. Try to arrange as much of the local high school’s theme as possible, while getting ideas from those who are participating.
Everyone looks forward to the entertainment and food at benefits or events. The food does not have to be catered or hold some luxurious standard, but the entertainment must be on point. Perhaps a local singer, magician, comedian, or even children’s talent show can bring interest to the scene that will prompt the attendees to get involved and even think about the benefit. For the high school idea, you can get students to participate as well!
Sometimes we think we can take on these tasks all by ourselves. But the truth is, we’re more successful in numbers. Find a responsible team that is willing to dedicate the time to making the event a success, such as making phone calls for vendors and entertainment, setting up and tearing down, making the invitations and sending them out, and assisting with parking. Your teammates can collaborate with you on their ideas.
Aside from entertainment, you’re going to need a prolific guest speaker. If you’re the one putting on the benefit, chances are you’re not going to feel like speaking (unless that’s your thing!). You want a great guest speaker that will entertain and encourage the attendees to participate in your event. So, perhaps you could hire somebody within the organization you’re participating in. Have somebody with a lot of zest and opportunity take the weight of speaking off of your shoulders.
Because every event that you host will require some sort of gift or “take-away” for your attendees, you need to think about what you’d like them to take home. Let’s use the example of the high school, where children will benefit. Aside from just an empty envelope asking for a donation at each table, you can have each of the kids use their artistic skills to paint or sculpt prizes for each of the attendees, or have one big raffle at the end of the event.
