Being an event planner is not an easy job. Stress can really take a toll on your body, mind and energy levels. So how to get past the pressure in order to focus on making sure that event goes as planned and makes an impact for your guests? From choosing reliable partners, to looking after your work-life balance, here are some tips to help make your life a little bit easier.
Be choosy with the event venue
Choosing a venue is one of the most important decisions in event planning, and it can be a major hurdle if you don’t select the best partner to work with – the last thing you want is a flaky or unresponsive host to add to this stress! By choosing a reliable partner with a solid track record, you can make sure that you and your guests are well taken care of and all pressure points are covered. When you choose any of our over 1,400 Radisson Hotel Group proprieties worldwide, you can rest assured that you will benefit from the same quality consistent service every time.
The meeting and events team at Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow for example has been trained in cooperation with Meeting Professionals International (MPI). This hotel doesn’t only offer great customer service, but also a premier location in Glasgow and 1,611 square metres of event space.
Ask for help on site
Don’t be afraid to ask for some help. If planning an important event feels overwhelming and you need some ideas or an extra hand with the planning, ask for suggestions and collaborate with the experts at your selected venue. They’re there to help and to ensure that your event can be executed to the highest possible standard. For example, when choosing our hotels, you’ll have your own dedicated point of contact for the event who’ll work with you as though they’re part of your own team. They’ll coordinate everything for you and link directly to all our experts across the business to ensure everything goes as planned. They’ll also help you identify opportunities to improve the experience for your event and give you recommendations.
Our team at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Cologne has great experience in handling any types of events and works closely with you to bring your vision to life. The hotel offers 997 square meters of stylish event space that is full of natural light. And the plus is that it’s right beside the trade fair.
Stay hydrated and healthy
Busy days can mean little time for the important things – the things that keep you going. Make a point of keeping a bottle of water on hand to always stay hydrated instead of fuelling with coffee. Likewise, if you want to keep delegates and guests energized and enthusiastic, make sure you offer them nutritious meals at your events.
Psst! Menus that perfectly balance health with touches of indulgence is one of Radisson Meetings’ secrets to success.
