Usually, an event planner and meeting planner are two different people. However, at Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, we’re an event rental company who specializes in both. Though we have to agree, trying to balance both can be quite tough because there are instances where we feel like we’re caught between worlds. For instance, as a non-profit planner, we usually work on educational events and meeting conferences, but being an event planner as well, there are occasions where we organize special events, formal weddings, dinners, and the like. Some people say those two are very different, and they’re right. Fortunately, we successfully plan and organize both.
Roles of a Meeting Planner
In the meetings world, the focus is usually the logistics, but we also work on the meeting design. The meeting design can mean several things, but it’s similar to making decisions around the meeting as a way to achieve its goals. For instance, for those who are planning an educational conference session, this must be highly interactive and it will be very inappropriate if the guests are sitting in a straight row, facing you. Instead, a more collaborative-friendly set, such as crescent rounds or circles of chairs will be more ideal.
Meeting design can be more difficult because there’s a need to consider the science of how people think, react, and interact. This is where the menu and nutrition selection are also organized. Being the host, aside from feeding your guests, you should also give them the right food that will make them feel satisfied and healthy. The meeting design should have an impact on the sensory stimulation and it should have the ability to change the mood of the room.
Expertise of an Event Planner
Most people believe that the only job of event planners is to create the environment and that’s all. Even though high-end events with limitless budgets are capable of creating a very remarkable environment, this isn’t really the goal of an event planner. At Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, we want to ensure that the guests will have a good time and every goal will be met by the end of the day. For instance, weddings have a goal, and that’s to show that couples are now committed to each other, and the family and friends are there to celebrate that.
Overall, event planners and meeting planners have similarities and differences. Both sides can learn from each other if given the chance, and that’s what our company strives for. We want our clients to feel that we’re more than just a bounce house company, we are a full event rental company. We can help with the ideas of planning, logistics, team building, fund raising, and other services that can guarantee the success of your event. We are always willing to come to committee meetings or be available by phone conference. Work with us at Big Bounce Fun House Rentals, and let our experience work for you.
