Feeling happy after an event

The feeling after an event

I love the feeling I get after an event is over. When the last guests have gone back home, I get to pack, clean, and organise the venue. Everything will be back to how it was when we arrived, or better. The feeling of fulfillment, happiness, success, quietness, ease, and peace of mind after a hectic day… It is like receiving a big award and the cherry on top of the event project. I know I did a good job, as the guests truly showed their appreciation for all the organising, the way the venue looked, the catering service, and how the evening’s program went. It’s great to go home after all this and go to sleep with a smile of gratitude. My guests being happy makes me happy.

But do I really need an event organiser?

Smaller events like this one with fewer than 20 guests can be organised with just one person taking care of everything. Everything including catering and cleaning, and it doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Some people believe that event organisers should only be hired for big conferences or galas. It is true that smaller events can be planned and executed by the host who wants an event to happen. But, does that person then get to enjoy the event themselves? It’s similar to building your own website and managing marketing campaigns on your own compared to hiring a professional. It’s possible, but is the end result really what you wanted?

OMG – there’s so much to do even for a small event!

Preparing the venue, food, drinks, transporting everything, warming and cooling, setting the tables, decorating, handling technical aspects like presentations, music, and online meeting, making sure everyone knows how to get to the venue, and getting themselves ready. These are just some of the things that happen before welcoming the guests and engaging with them. Not to mention what needs to happen during the event. Small tasks, such as ensuring that the food trays and coffee pots are filled during the event, and that the spills are cleaned up should not be done by the main person of the event in his tuxedo / her gala dress.

And when it’s time to close down the event, the host should be able to leave for home (or to an afterparty) without worrying about packing up roll-ups, cables and empty bottles.

When there’s a reason for a party or an event, it’s worth doing it well and allowing the official host to enjoy the event with their guests. This is why Zeny AB exists — to make even the event hosts happy.
