The expansive area of ‘Operations’ is where the rubber meets the road and this session will cover multiple areas that can make or break an event. Event Infrastructure: The infrastructure for many events is a lot like building a small village where the day before there was nothing. Stage, lights, sound, tents, vehicles, decorations, bleachers, food delivery, trash pick-up, communications, utilities, parking, et al., we’ll talk about what you may need, where to go get it, and lots of insider-tips to remember in the process.
Attendee & Support Services: Whenever you plan to draw a crowd, you’ve got to be thinking about what their needs may be: information, medical, lost kids, rest areas, ATM’s, restrooms, trash disposal, signage, communications, safety and security plans; accessibility; and much more. We’ll make sure you don’t forget anything.
Programming, Site-Design and Event Flow: When did having fun require so much thinking? Like a theme park, effectively planning your event programming, site layout, service accessibility, etc., can ultimately affect sales; safety; friendly-neighbor relationships; and the overall experience for your attendees. We’ll cover some important, if not critical, considerations that will keep your event flowing smoothly.
- Environmental Realities: Events can play an important role through education and as a role model in protecting the environment. We’ll touch on some of the ‘Green Reality’ options that events can consider today.
