Should your company hire a corporate event planner or a DMC (Destination Management Company)?
It depends. Many companies have employees who work to plan corporate events in house. If this is a dedicated position, that can be an excellent option. When it is an extra task thrown on an employee, problems may arise. Corporate event planning is an extremely stressful job for someone who is already busy with other company projects.
If your staff feels overworked, adding a corporate event to their workload is never advised. The success of the event will reflect on them and their co-workers may blame them if something goes sour.
But An Overworked Staff Isn't The Only Reason You Should Consider Hiring A Corporate Event Planner.
Depending on the scale of the event, it may require connections, insights or experience that are outside of an employee's skill set. In this case, hiring a corporate event planner or a Destination Management Company may be the perfect solution.
Professional event planners have developed a network of companies and people that they can call upon to make your corporate event a dream. They understand what is possible, and know the individuals who can make things happen. From venue managers, to caterers, to entertainment, they will listen to your needs, work with your budget and make your next corporate event stress free.
