How can we save money hiring you?
Review the big picture and put your dollars into what is really important in building value into your events and meetings for your attendees. An example is spending money on expensive linens or a theatrical facade on the exterior of an event ballroom. While both elements add to a function, the costs add to your budget and may not have a long lasting impact on your guests.Eliminate the carving stations of prime rib and jumbo shrimp as appetizers -opting for more inexpensive fare such as chicken, fish and mini appetizers.The expensive mousse dessert can be substituted for a more traditional and simple chocolate cake, mini cupcakes, etc. The rule of thumb is that most guests take two bites of dessert and the remainder is tossed. Perhaps, instead of serving dessert as a part of dinner service, set-up a dessert station as a post event function. A dessert station can have less quantity for only those with a sweet tooth. You're basically not paying for dessert for those that won't eat it.Request the venue to provide seasonal vegetables instead of more pricey items that are out-of-season such as asparagus, artichokes and exotic fruits such as mangoes, papayas, etc.Use more lighting to achieve the desired ambiance instead of a lot of props and theatrical scenery.Request pitchers of water instead of bottled water.Select more inexpensive items to give as gifts to speakers. More than likely, these individuals already have a plethora of ink pens, plaques, glassware, etc. A more inexpensive substitute might be a donation to thespeaker's favorite charity -- or just a Certificate of Appreciation signed by senior management.Turn your evening dinner function into a luncheon. You'll save money on the luncheon, which is often less expensive than a dinner menu. In addition, if you're providing a hosted bar, guests tend to drink less atluncheons than at after work or evening functions. If an evening function, definitely consider a 1 or 2 drink ticket allotment, then it goes into a cash bar. You might also opt to do hosted wine and beer.Suggest that guests purchase any hard alcohol.
Bravo Productions was founded as a company whose sole mission was the design and creation of Tournament of Roses Parade floats and soon became a preeminent event planning and production company specializing in staging corporate, association, government, military and non-profit events nationwide.
