7 roles of an event organizer The following are seven roles of an event organizer: 1. Managing event planning Event organizers work in tandem with clients during planning to tightly manage all aspects of the event. They are in charge of securing that the event goes as expected and that everyone involved in it performs their part well. Some facets of the planning process include: budget allocation arranging for the venue working out the food menu design and printing of event materials collaborating with subcontractors. 2. Managing budget issues Before event organizers can begin the planning process, they typically ask the client for an estimation of their budget. They can also make suggestions to the client for budget modifications according to their expectations. They guarantee getting the best offers from caterers and local venues. Event organizers subsequently hire skilled individuals without exceeding the limits of the budget. 3. Transportation & lodging of guests At times, event organizers offer transportation services to assist guests with getting to the venue. They can provide accommodation services as well, or make agreements with lodging providers in case the event lasts longer. Event organizers also ensure they arrange for the best deals within the confines of the client’s budget. 4. Choosing the venue As an event organizer, you may work closely with your client to determine the best venue for your event. Clients may prefer larger or smaller venues, in accordance with their requirements. Event organizers can create lists of candidate venues, and inspect venues so that they ensure they meet their client’s specifications. 5. Communicating & network development Event organizers can communicate with venue staff to ensure their events turn out even more efficient. They build networks with other event organizers or clients so that they can collaborate. Event organizers can also use advice and suggestions from other professionals to help make the projects they’re working on even more successful. 6. Supervision of event setups Event organizers supervise the setting and the aesthetics for their organized events. They also manage equipment like projectors or sound systems. They seek ways to keep participants entertained and engaged. 7. Selection of event speakers (if required) If the event is a conference or a seminar, event organizers help clients select speakers relevant to the topics and aims of the event. Event organizers help confirm availability of the speakers and ensure everything happens as scheduled. If there is a need for any date changes, event organizers make sure they inform the speakers accordingly.

DHL
DHL 40 Years

Challenge:

DHL Express, the leader in International Postal Services, celebrated its 40 year presence in Greece. We were asked to organize a glamorous evening of celebration dedicated to its customers and partners at the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Center.

 

Our Approach:

“Excellence. Simply Delivered.” We took DHL’s words and applied it to the event.

We began by designing the 40 year campaign, including branding and communication materials. In addition, we created a film dedicated to the staff and their day-to-day life at DHL.

For the party, we designed the event flow, configured the venue, set up the stage and décor based on the branded materials.

 

Result:

The DHL 40th anniversary event was attended by more than 500 people including company representatives, institutions, organizations, embassies and the Minister of Energy and Environment, Mr. George Stathakis.

Through all the action DHL managed to revive the morale of its partners and to strengthen team dynamics.
