Starting Up An Event Management Business

If you are looking to start up a business in hospitality and event management, you will need to start thinking about which aspects of the event you intend on handling yourself and which aspects of the event you would be considering outsourcing. There are many aspects to each event that you will need to think about such as location, catering and entertainment. It is important to remember that handling a certain aspect of the event yourself as opposed to outsourcing is going to bring you a lot more money than it would if you were outsourcing it. However, at the same time this means that you will have a lot more work to do on your own as opposed to simply handing over the work tosomeone else.

Outdoor event planning

You may consider specializing in outdoor events and parties where are you will not need a specific function hall to host the event. You may consider hosting the event at a large garden, even if it is a garden in a house that you rent for a few days. If you have your own big yard you may even partition it and host the event in a grand manner at your own place, however you will need to purchase outdoor blinds to put up in case of bad weather. Additionally, you will need to have at least a small area of your garden that is covered from bad weather to keep food and drinks. This may be a part of a veranda or even a cleaned up garage.

If you do not have a small covered up area you may even consider hiring a tent with automatic awnings in Adelaide. This is important because with an outdoor event you can never predict the weather and you do not want a sudden drizzle or hard rain to ruin all of your hard work that you have put into the event.

If you are hosting is an outdoor event you may want to consider serving cocktail type food with wine and champagne as opposed to a full buffet. For an outdoor event you will not need to have too many chairs and tables as your guests will be likely to enjoy a little walk around the garden. However, it is important that you hire cocktail tables so that your guests will have the opportunity to put the glasses and the plates down when they feel the need to do so. One great idea for décor for an outdoor event is to have simple fairy lights and simple white lanterns hanging on trees.
