Whether you’re planning a gala, a conference, or a board meeting, a single point of contact makes for maximum ease and minimum hassle.
No matter how large or small an event may seem, each and every one has a lot of moving parts. Catering, technology, activities, logistics—and that’s just the beginning! Whether you’re planning a gala, a business meeting, or a full-scale weekend conference, the sheer number of details can get overwhelming.
From the wellness center to Wi-Fi to water stations, The NEW Center offers top-to-bottom event services, all in one place. Trust us, we’re here to make life easier—here’s how.
1. Tech? Check
Most events require some kind of technology—microphones, video equipment, smart boards or projection tools, for example. If your venue is fully equipped with these tools from the start, there’s no coordination and no special IT scheduling needed. Everything will be set up and ready to go from the moment you arrive. 100% convenient, and 0% techno-failure.
The NEW Center provides helpful amenities that make meetings and seminars seamless including:
- LCD projectors
- Built-in and portable screens
- Microphones and stands
- Flip charts
- Portable lecterns
- Portable staging
2. Details, done—from tablecloths to team building
Some event venues provide four walls, a ceiling, and climate control—and the rest is left to you. While that allows a bride or a manager to design down to the tiniest detail, it also makes for a LOT of work! At The NEW Center, our expert team takes care of every detail—you can schedule catering service, conference spaces, and even a team building cookout or rock climbing adventure. We take care of everything, so you can take time to host without worrying about something silly but still important like having enough napkins.
3. Food for thought
Cooking for a crowd can be a challenge. That’s why venues with on-site catering can save any event planner tons of time—not to mention offer great package pricing! At The NEW Center, we’re lucky enough to have a brilliant Executive Chef, a full luncheon Bistro, and even a low-key coffee shop so that everything is covered down to the snack and coffee breaks.
4. Space to breathe
If you’re planning a major event, a single space just may not be enough. Opening speeches, networking hours, presentations and workshops often need unique settings to create the best experience. In some cases, this would require booking multiple venues and vendors, and coordinating the entire production. For our team, it’s as simple as choosing your space. Would the open atrium suit your welcome speech? Perhaps you’d like to use a few individual conference rooms for training? It’s available all in one place at The NEW Center!
5. One word: experience
Working out the logistics of special events requires time, patience and lots of planning. You may not have the extra room in your schedule to manage all of that, which is exactly why an event planner can be a lifesaver. In addition to already having lots of planning experience and expertise, a great planner knows to anticipate what you’ll need—even if you might otherwise forget!
The ease of working with a professional, straightforward event planner saves more than just time (though that’s a great benefit, too!). Teams like ours at The NEW Center ensure high quality, low stress planning, seamless events and unquestioned peace of mind. Reach out to learn more or to submit a proposal today!
