How To Start An Event Company
less the same way you start any other business.
Just in a moment we will talk about how you can use it for your project.
Event design is a unique and wonderful, systematic way to weigh the success, or failure of a particular event with a team of the same interest.
We help to simplify the tool to fit into a piece of paper.
And this will help you sketch every part of your event with your team members.
This tool is designed so that every member of your team can share their views, or ideas or discuss the best approach for a better event design; also to achieve a maximum productivity.
Events have an inherent power that can change participants' behavior.
I want us to analyze each of those major boxes in the screenshot above. The first one is pain.
#1. Pain - you need to ask yourself these questions:
what are the fears of the stakeholders? What are their road blocks? Or what do they feel frustrating? What borders them so much?
In the business world when we say pain, it could be things like; let's use the example of professor Mark juliano.
He said, "it's actually the case that people tend to buy products or more, because they have pain.
The hurting that they experience is because they have something to gain.
Let's assume for a seconds that there are no hybrid cars.
So all the cars in the world are regular engines, let's say they have 20 mouths per gallon.
Let's also assume that gas goes up to 3; you know 4 hours a gallon, I am in pain.
I basically want to save money on gas, it's costing me hundreds of dollars a week. Thousands of dollars a year.
And I literally, can't afford to drive to my job everyday which is 50 miles away.
It just cost me too much. So you might buy a hybrid car purely for the reason of pain, you are in pain for cars.
You buy a car you save money on gas."
So the kind of pain we are talking about here is the feelings or thoughts that hinder people from doing a certain thing.
It pays to understand these pains, because it is important to your stakeholders.
So if the event can relieve the pain he/she will be responsive.
#2. Expectations - what was the recent experience he had?
His previous experience might not be as good as he expected.
He might expect something far better than the previous events.
What other people involved say; they may tell the stakeholder their own personal experiences, and also what they perceived from others.
a. Internet - another expectation is, what is discussed on online forums, Facebook, Twitter or other social media about the event.
b. Marketing information - this is the information which the event organizer brings to the table.
Those are the expectations very important to the stakeholder which he or she has in mind going to the event.
If you want to exceed those expectations you should know their nature.
#3. Cost - there are some items and services You would require during the event.
Different things cost money, for example a glass house costs more money than a block house.
Every business requires funds. And again, the bigger the event, the bigger the budget vice versa; also the income statement.
Cost is directly proportional to financial expenses that a stakeholder takes into account as influenced by the event.
Cost block helps in providing insight on how the event works.
#4. Revenue - income is directly related to the event. Revenue for a team member could be the cost for the other.
For example, the $30 raffle ticket cost for people who attended the event is a revenue, for joe that helps him balance his cost of the eatery bill.
Some team members as well as some events may not have any income stream.
As you plan to start a new event company or you are an existing one, follow those step by step as we outlined above to guide you on each process.
When you complete the analysis, then you merge all the event canvases to form the ultimate canvas.
You can use colours to differentiate team members, meaning, sticky notes per colour to make the canvas more understandable and accessible.
You can see how the event canvas designers analyze it on the screenshots above.
Take advantage of technology; that is another tool.
Although I don't know your specialty, because this particular tool works best for pod show.
According to an Arabian company's case study on the screenshot below
The poken made the USB stick interactive, for networking and participants meeting check in.
It is also for meeting tracking and team members lead generation.
The platform also provides event mobile app, and onsite registration and badging.
Finally - you know, as in somebody who want to start an event company. You can choose the tool that best fit in to the event design of your choice.
So, Event is a very sensitive mechanism therefore, work effectively on your security management, stakeholders and also take advantage of what your strengths are.
