Corporate Event Organising and Management
Get trusted professional assistance from start to finish
A lot goes into successfully organising and managing a corporate event – big or small! In the lead up, you need to liaise with the venue and all the suppliers, coordinate the accommodation and travel, plan the program, put together the theme, stick to the budget, plan menus, and confirm quotes and contracts.
Then when the actual event rolls around, you find you need to be in about 10 places at once! Guests need to be registered and welcomed, VIPs and speakers taken care of, all suppliers kept on track, decorations done, program timings kept to, and any problems taken care of.
If all of that has you feeling overwhelmed, don’t worry – we are here to help! Simply Great Ideas are experienced corporate event organisers and managers. We’ve seen it all before and know exactly what it takes to make a good event amazing! Our secret? It comes down to our creative approach and our attention to detail (you can never be too organised).
