EVENT MANAGEMENT; WHEN IS IT TIME TO EMBRACE A LITTLE CHANGE?

Event management is not for the fainthearted, it’s fast paced where you need to think on your feet. As event organisers ourselves we are always looking for ways to be as efficient as possible in the live environment. And sometimes that’s with event tech.

The variety of event tech available at our fingertips means that the way we manage tasks can be completely different to years gone by, and will continue to change. But how do you decipher what will benefit your event?

Not every solution is for you, your budget or the size of your event. You need to think about what you are trying to achieve, how you can achieve it and weigh up the benefits whether it’s saving time, money, waste or increasing reach, attendees and diversity.

Improve Efficiency

Introducing technology, even minimally, can provide a really efficient way of dealing with otherwise manual jobs and help raise morale for those usually laborious tasks.

Take Grub Stub for example. The online system makes managing meals from planning, to live event, through to post event simple. As a result, there is no more updating spreadsheets and translating multiple emails into one format. You can easily delegate to managers controlled by limits you set, access live data and gain valuable insights post event.

Scope for Improvements

Or maybe you’re not looking to introduce a completely new system yet or you’re working on a smaller scale event. That doesn’t mean there isn’t scope for improvements.

Little Tickets

Turn your spreadsheets into tickets.

Little Tickets provides event managers with a handy stepping stone. The free-to-use web-based app helps you manage the entire process of ticket and token creation, from design, to grouping, through to printing. Whether it’s meal tickets, drinks tokens, upgrades, freebies or any other promotion or activity, upload your spreadsheet and produce your crew’s pre-counted tickets.

Little Tickets is the only service that takes care of the admin side. It delivers serialised tickets grouped and ready to issue, relieving production teams of the hours spent cutting, counting and sorting. Post-event redemption data can also be input, so you don’t have to miss out on valuable insights for future budgeting and planning.

Sometimes it might seem easier to stick to the same old methods. But, without breaking the bank, you can improve processes to benefit team efficiency, morale and quality of output.
