Top Events related questions

How far in advance should I book an event organiser?

Bringing a professional as early as possible to the planning phase is always better. Having someone to work with you from the start can increase the chances of everything going smoothly. After all, your hired Tasker will be focused on ensuring that the best suppliers are present and that everything goes according to plan moving forward.

How can I save money on an event?

It may be cliché, but a no-fail way of saving money is to work with an expert. A professional has worked with numerous suppliers and can connect you to people worth your buck. Don’t pour money down the drain by accidentally booking unsavoury food or lacklustre performances. Let a reliable Tasker handle it for you.

Can I DIY my event planning?

Numerous people do the DIY route. Fair warning, though. Organising an event requires you to have ample time, loads of patience, excellent communication skills, a quick mind, and never-ending creativity. It could be something fun for you to try, but if you don’t have the heart for it, you may be better off hiring someone to get the job done for you instead.

How do I know I need ​an event organiser?

You can hire one no matter how intimate or simple an event is. It might help you decide if you know the number of guests and other details. Corporate gatherings like press launches, conferences, and awards nights need a team of event coordinators. In addition, having one plan for a birthday dinner with your closest friends may help you enjoy the night better.

Should I hire one event planner or a team?

Events with more attendees or suppliers will need a team, while just one planner can handle smaller parties. Since this can vary from one event to another, it’s best to include these details when you put up a task. Taskers who send you an offer can inform you if one person will be working on it or have a team handle all your requirements.

Aside from event planning, what other services can I book through Airtasker?

There are plenty of Taskers on our platform ready to make any occasion special. You can book a show director, entertainers, a cleaning crew, and even ushers! It’s also possible to send a surprise gift or even order a bouquet for the celebrant. Airtasker can connect you to nearby professionals dedicated to making your day extraordinary.

What do event management services include?

Your event manager will take care of all aspects on your event day and will likely fix any problems before you even know about them. Because event management isn’t about theming or decorations (although some offer this service), but how your event runs behind the scenes. Here’s what you can expect from working with an event manager:

Pre-event planning
Your event manager will start with a pre-planning discussion to confirm timelines and budgets, ensuring you’re on the same page. They’ll then arrange insurance and permits, liaising with local councils or governing bodies and conducting risk assessments for health and safety reports. Your event management service may include planning media and PR campaigns, along with producing marketing material to give your event maximum exposure. Finally, your event planner will develop a schedule or timetable for your event.

Venue & equipment hire
With your event looming, your corporate event manager will start organising venues and equipment. They’ll work to secure the best deal for you, identifying appropriate venues within your budget for your chosen date. They’ll handle contract review and negotiations for venues and suppliers and organise catering that fits your event theme and guest requirements. Your event manager will also arrange equipment hire, including audio-visual, marquees, toilets, fences, stages, lighting, and any decorations needed. They’ll coordinate all these suppliers and manage the deposits and final payments.

Hiring staff & third-party liaison
From MCs and wait staff to security personnel, all corporate events need staff for the efficient operation of an event. The role of an event manager is to ensure all positions are filled with qualified or experienced staff who are fully briefed on the expectations for the event. They’ll oversee staff activity during the event to make sure everything goes to plan. Your event manager will also liaise with third parties including speakers, sponsors, and entertainment.

Event day management
Finally, your event manager will help with managing your event on-the-day, arriving first on the scene, they’ll also probably be the last ones to leave. From setting up to cleaning up, your event manager will manage all aspects behind the scenes to ensure a seamless experience for all attendees. They’ll ensure venue logistics are locked down and will keep communication lines open during the event, without burdening you with questions or concerns. They’ll manage all supplier and event enquiries, as well as qualified or experienced staff and speakers, so you don’t have to.
