"What is so special about your company/product/brand that I or we should shell out costs to sponsor you?" That is the first and utmost logical question anyone would ask if you are approaching them for an event sponsorship. So better be prepared with a very good answer and presentation sheet to convince them. Sponsorship for an event can be in the form of goods, services, food and beverage, print-out materials, banners, décor or even a venue in the ultimate case. Workout a list of what you think you would like to have sponsored to offset your event management costs. Make a wish list of items you feel you are able to persuade companies or individuals to sponsor you for. Pick a special niche in your event that you would like to highlight, giving you the edge over others who have or had approached your target sponsors before. The more special and unique your event, the higher the chance of confirmed sponsorship.

We all can't live without color in our lives, more so when we need to make an impact during an event. Holding an event is basically on a short term so it is important for us to make the right impression that will in all cases remain in the minds of people we come into contact with, or to attract visitors to our event. Every event organizer will try to synergize lighting, sound system, décor and color to their best possible impact but the key to all this is color. You just might wreck your whole event if the color scheme is way off mark, unless off course if your intentions are to be notorious with a riot of mismatched colors! So how do you go about choosing the right color scheme for that special event?

Organizing an event is like building a bridge. It should be steady, stable and consistent from the start till the end. If a single nut or bolt is out of place, chances are, the bridge will collapse. An event is made of a series or a sequence of activities. Should there be a weak link in the chain of activities, the succeeding activities will be affected and could spell disaster in the end. Event organizing comprises a long list of “to-do’s”. In order to prepare and psych yourself up with the “do’s”, it would also help to call your attention towards the ‘not-to-do’s or the “don’t’s” of events management:

Day 1 Opening day of event: A full house! You rejoice at the overwhelming attendance. After the coffee break, you see some vacant seats. You just say to yourself, “hmmm…maybe it just takes then a while to get some coffee..”. However, as the event progresses, people seem to get restless. You could hear their mindless chatter within earshot. Some take restroom breaks one time too often. Some walk out then never come back. And some just sit quietly, you heave a sigh of relief, until you looked again, they’ve dozed off to sleep. You ask yourself, “what have I done?” You just violated the event commandment: ‘Thou shall not kill your event attendees with boredom’ !

Have you ever attended an event that made you ask yourself ‘why am I here?’ You’re silently sitting in your assigned seat or mindlessly wandering around the location because your mind has already drifted somewhere. you could not bring yourself to focus on the event itself; until you realize that it’s time to take action – you decide to stealthily step out because you are convinced that it’s pointless to stay, an utter waste of your precious time! Let’s turn the tables around. If you were the event organizer and saw your attendees sneaking out, you’d most likely ask yourself, “what seems to be the problem?” Now there, you just answered your own question. You don’t know what your audience’s problem is, thus, you don’t know what and how your event can address their problem/s.
