How do you carry out an objective assessment of the success of an event? In other words what in your professional opinion would you say is the criteria to terming an event ‘successful’.
‘A successful event’ means different things to different people, which is why it is very important to ask your clients from the get go “How would you measure the success of this event?” That way everyone is on the same page and you can focus your energy on the things that matter to the client. Having said that though I’d say focus your attention on every aspect of the event, it’s all in the detail!
The décor is as important as the event flow and everything else within the event. It’s about creating an unforgettable experience for your guests.
