Corporate events are always fun for everyone, apart from the person whose job it is to organise all of the fun! If you’re the person in charge, who as well as having to deal with the fact that a lot of people that didn’t reply to your invites have just turned-up, unannounced, and that rain is closing in on the big starlight extravaganza that you’ve been planning for months, then you need to make sure that you’ve carefully chosen experienced furniture hire Brisbane suppliers who have the know-how to help you to plan for all eventualities.
From product launches and sports team announcements, to corporate hospitality events, award galas, music performances and festivals and public weddings and parties, partnering with a team that are as dedicated as you are means that your event will be memorable for all of the right reasons.
If you are a regular organiser of exhibitions and events, you’ll know only too well the pitfalls of suppliers that either increasingly hike their prices or fob you off with tired, worn and poor-quality furniture.
When it comes to sourcing chairs, stools, tables, reception counters, lounges, audio visual equipment, ottomans, carpet and lockable storage cupboards for your next event, you need to find a supplier whose stock is going to enable your event to demonstrate a strong point of difference. Sadly, many of the suppliers in Australia source their products from the same manufacturers, which means that if you’re in competition with other exhibitors at an event, and their stand looks like yours, then the chances are that you’re not communicating the unique qualities of your brand, product and service as well as you could.
Decorative hire and event styling can showcase the individual qualities of your company’s products. With a simple bit of input and careful consideration of props, theming and styling, all of which you need to ensure will be available to hire when you need them for your event, are the way to turn your event into an experience.
The more reputable suppliers out there often showcase unique and promote the most stylish aspects of their hire collection on their website. Make sure to find a company whose events furniture both looks and is regularly updated. Does the hire company provide on-trend pieces or does the stock all look a bit, well, yesteryear daahling!?
One final point to consider if the event that you are planning is going to be a pretty major date in the upcoming social calendar of many well to do people, is that it might be worth having a rendered illustration done on CAD drawing system, so that you can get a lifelike example of how your event is going to look. The beauty of this is that if larger numbers are involved, you can give clear consideration to people traffic flow, lighting planning and even special features such as a stage, amplification and a dancefloor.
We all know a great function or event is way more than just the furniture, props and marquees. Besides everything that goes in to planning, success is also a lot to do with hard work, great customer service and always delivering. So, when you’re choosing a furniture hire provider, speak with them too. If they seem proactive, pre-emptive, sharp, patient and sound like reasonable people then you’ve probably hit upon the perfect partner for your next event.
