How to start an event organisation company

Organising different events and celebrations, involves certain amount of money, as well as a bit of hard work. If we want to launch a business in this area, first and foremost, we should remember about creativity and novelty. These two vital aspects will help us to prepare a unique and attractive offer that will stand out from the competition and dazzle our customers. The choice of the specific target group is equally important, and should depend on the current market situation in a given region. A narrow target group is suitable for those who want to run a locally oriented business. If we, however, consider organising events on a larger scale we will have to invest considerably more money. As already mentioned, the kind of business described in this article will rely heavily on our creative inspiration – a factor which is especially significant if our offer is to be directed to children.

What to focus our attention on?
When it comes to the ideas for different celebrations, we should remember that, most frequently, parents choose to organise parties connected with certain important events in the life of a child. These usually include birthdays, name days, Children’s Day, First Communions, christening parties, etc. Due to the unique nature of each of the above events, the general theme of the party as well as all of the decorations used, should fit into a particular occasion. Additionally, we must be open to parent’s suggestions, because in the majority of cases it is them who have a decisive voice.

Since, professional event organisation dedicated for children is nothing new, the competition on the market is rather strong. Therefore, to gain advantage over the other companies of the similar profile, we should focus on the exceptional attention to detail and the high level of flexibility. Additionally, our offer should be as comprehensive as possible. While for big companies the organisation of events for children is merely one of the many areas of activity, we can concentrate on them entirely. Thanks to such an approach towards the customer, our company will be perceived as reliable and trustworthy. Obviously, achieving such an ambitious goal will require a lot of hard work but we should not feel discouraged.

Necessary accessories and decorations
Choosing appropriate accessories and decorations is not easy. The vast majority of them should be bought after consulting the preferences of the parents, who frequently have their own view of how the party should look like. Obviously we may put forward our suggestions, however, in the first place we should take into account the expectations of the customer.
As already mentioned, our business should be characterised by a great attention to detail and comprehensiveness. Therefore, we should take care for a range of different factors, such as visual project, meals and beverages, entertaining games or sports activities etc. Obviously, the ideas should match the character of a given occasion, as well as the age of a child.
Starting up a child event planning company will require relatively small funds. First of all, we should invest money into a laptop computer (about $1000), internet connection and network equipment (at least 500$), promotional materials (at least $500), office devices such as a printer, fax etc.
It is also a good idea to co-operate with companies offering catering services, as well as decoration manufacturing, and confectionery manufacturing. Additionally, it is worth establishing contacts with a variety of institutions, schools, youth educational centres, marketing agencies, artistic agencies etc.
