4 Easy Tips to Deal With Bad Weather at Events

By | Event Planning Tips, Events | No Comments

You’re planning an outdoor event a few months out. You’ve got audio, lights, entertainment, marketing, invites, and everything else in place and ready to go. The day of the event comes and, when you look outside, you see clouds and rain with no signs of going away.

Ever happened to you? 

Dealing with and preparing for bad weather is an inescapable issue when planning events outdoors. Even when conditions, locations, and time of the year are working in your favor, there’s still a chance of inclement weather taking a toll on your event. I had an event a couple of years ago in the middle of the summer in the desert of Arizona and, like clockwork, it ended up raining for the first time in two months on the day of the event. And that’s not counting plenty of other events I’ve worked where we had to deal with rain and storms (check me out in the picture at the top of the page…).

You can’t escape bad weather at events, but you CAN prepare for it! Let’s explore 4 simple ways that you can prepare for whatever comes when planning an outdoor event. Read More

Every Friday for the next couple of months we will be having a Staff Spotlight blog, highlighting one member of our incredible staff each week. This week let’s take a look at Andrew Latimer, our Equipment Manager!

How did you get started at Endless?

I knew Will [Curran, President] from working events in college. There were a handful of times that we worked the same event.

SocialTagg: A Platform for Better Networking, Better Events

By | Event Technology, Events | No Comments

Imagine this: you’re an attendee at a conference or professional mixer, and you’ve just waited in a long line to check-in, pick up your badge, and get through security. Once inside, you meet a few people whom you’d like to get to know. You reach into your pocket and realize something: you’ve forgotten your business cards. After the event, you come home with a stack of business cards, with the terrible realization that you can’t remember who you spoke to or what you talked about, and may be missing a few cards.

Meanwhile, if you’re the event planner hosting the event, you’re running around in the background to monitor the check-in table, manage event logistics, and find ways to measure your event’s success.

Have any of these situations happened to you before? Or, perhaps a better question: how many times have these situations happened to you? Read More

Little Known Ways to Save Big On Your Events

By | Events | No Comments

Even though there are many hurdles an event planner has to overcome in order to make his events a success, the biggest one is almost always the same – financial constrictions are ultimately the deciding factor for most of the choices that are made when planning an event.

The important thing is to know what can be sacrificed without significant consequences and what cannot be compromised under any circumstances. Experienced event planners understand that there are many ways to approach any situation and thus can be flexible when figuring out what’s the best way to stay on budget.

When you know the areas in which you can cut costs, it becomes a lot easier to slice the bottom line of any event and be able to spend more on the aspects that are really important. Read More
