How To Find Event Vendors That Make Up Your A-Team

You know the saying, ‘it’s now what you know. It’s who you know.

No matter how great your ideas are, without a solid team of event vendors you can’t compete in the event industry. Creating a team of event vendors is one of the most important aspects of planning events because it creates long term success.

How To Find Event Vendors

Having the right event vendors is like a good marriage.

They’re going to be around for a while so choose them carefully. We often get excited about people we meet but it’s important to take time to get to know potential vendors , then decide if they’re right for your preferred vendor list, the occasional event or maybe you decide not to use them at all.

Event vendors can help you sell your event services to their customers through word of mouth advertising, updates on their website or by mentioning you in their newsletter.

If you have good vendor relationships but there’s one ‘C’ player who is dragging you or your event down, identify this person and replace them immediately. It’s important to trust your vendors and to use (and test) their services or products before you hire them for a client’s event.

    Planning for all stages of cleaning for an event comes with a set of challenges. I like to help my clients navigate and coordinate with ease so they can focus on more important tasks. Are there any avenues to connect vendors and corporate event planners that you may suggest?

    • Event Planning Blueprint says:

      There are no tactics or special avenues for connecting with vendors. Event planning is a people business so the best way to connect vendors and event planners, and develop a working relationship with between them, is to spend time getting to know them. Networking events are a good start, taking local planners out for coffee, supporting their events, etc are some examples of ways to connect with them.
