For even the most experienced of event managers, planning events can be extremely stressful.
Having to coordinate every detail alone from beginning to end could potentially set you up to fail, especially for a large scale event. You will be working long, unsociable and irregular hours leading up to the event date. There is no shame in hiring help and splitting the work and lightening the load.
There’s a lot to consider when hiring help, especially when their work will directly affect how the event runs and your reputation as an events manager. Do meetings with clients and suppliers together so they can get a true understanding of the vision and plans.
Having a team around that you wholeheartedly trust is key here. Have people around that you know will use initiative and take charge of their own tasks to a high standard. You may think you can but you really can’t-do EVERYTHING yourself.
