Attending and exhibiting at an event is a great opportunity for a business. It can be time consuming when you are running your business as a sole trader.
I have recently helped one of my clients prepare for an exhibition at a business conference.
The tasks included:
- Liaising with the event co-ordinator to confirm stand, adverts and delivery of items
- Liaising with the graphic design on artwork and marketing materials
- Researching and liaising with suppliers for promotional items needed: Branded clothing, chocolates and fridge magnets
- Meeting deadlines
- Collating data from business cards and creating a spreadsheet
By taking over the organising, my client was able to continue working with their clients. I regularly kept him up to date and ensure that deadlines were met.
What tips do you have for organising an event and keeping on top of the deadlines?
