Importance of Latest Communication Technology for Event Planners
Event planning is a very busy field requiring a whole lot of time, planning, organization, ideas, creativity, and most importantly a large creative team (depending on how big your business if of course). For most event planning companies, they have different agents or managers as you can call them who take on various clients and assignments at a time. However, all the resources of that company, be it decorations, caterers, venues, partners in clothing, stage design, security, tents, or limousines are shared by all the agents.
Because of this issue, it is very important that all the agents and their workers always stay in touch. They need to have the latest technology in communications. Therefore regular cellphones don’t work, smart phones is a must have for everyone so they can check email from clients, send Facebook or Twitter messages to other agents if they are unable to reach them via phone or email and need to discuss some sort of an emergency that needs to be handled urgently. Time sharing is also an option on today’s smart phones such as iPhones and BlackBerries for group discussion. When something that requires pre-planning and also a lot of time and energy in the moment like an event management job, all workers involved in the project need to have access with each other for any last minute changes such as a change in the guest list, seats for more people, or other types of duties their clients/ hosts of the event may ask for.
