Is bigger always better? So often large-scale events can be overwhelming and sometimes disappointing for attendees. Large groups of people trying to network will typically find a small group of familiar faces and remain there for most of the event.
It’s like that with big conferences too, sometimes more isn’t better, it’s just more. Over the past few years there’s been a trend of conferences and events getting shorter and smaller. Sure, it could be budget restrictions and management wanting their team to spend less days out of the office but it also challenges business owners to get the most bang for their buck and squeeze in maximum information into minimum hours.
In the same way that many elements are required to pull off an amazing event, it also takes a variety of people to make it happen.
As it’s important at every conference or business event for an organisation to showcase the very best version of itself (to their staff, clients, key stakeholders, etc.) it’s vital that each member of your team works together seamlessly. We’ve all been in a position where one grumpy staff member has given us a bad impression or left us feeling as though an experience could’ve been done better. The same applies for your guests. From the moment a delegate or guest arrives at your event, you’ll want to make a good impression and it only takes one person to drop the ball to create a bad one. Since you only get one chance to make a first impression, here are a few reasons why working as a team is always a better strategy than flying solo and some ideas on ensuring you get the very best out of your event team.
