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.

The Walking Dead New Season Launch Event


As part of a global launch of season 6 of “The Walking Dead”, Fox held a European press tour. One stop on the tour was Greece. With an already large fan base, the goal was to strengthen this even further. We were asked to recreate the style of one of the episodes, so the overall production had to be at a high level to correspond with the overall aesthetic of “The Walking Dead”.


Our Approach:

The events kicked off with a VIP party The Loft Collage in Kapnikareas, with cast members Michael Cudlitz, Josh McDermitt, Ross Marquand and Greg Nicotero. The VIP party was followed the next day by press conferences in the St. George Lycabettus suite and one-on-one interviews with the cast.

We recreated the set and decorated an industrial space with black roses, and various zombie elements such as cages, chains, and smoke machine which completed the “thriller” scene.

Two giant zombies greeted the guests and acted as the backdrop to photos, chained to columns or placed inside cages. Served were literal “finger food”, bite sized snacks designed as various body parts.



The event achieved the desired results, the VIP party created a lot of buzz and the interviews of the actors played continuously on various media outlets.
