Tools For Business Events

What tools do you need to manage an event? Well, the main tool you need is an Event Organiser who is good at what they do, is well organised, works well with their events team and knows how to use all the resources at their disposal. As well as their personnel tools there are an increasing number of software packages that can be used as tools for planning events.

There are a number of specific event planning tools available which can further aid event planning and enable clear record keeping, Event management software includes Online registration and delegate management, which could include online payment. This helps keep track of exactly how many attendees are expected.

Other useful software tools for planning events include packages for venue selection – databases which may be linked to large venue companies with details of locations, venue sizes etc. Software is also available for Exhibition Management and these packages can manage all aspects of planning, booking and billing – especially useful for event management companies regularly planning large and complex exhibitions. Further tools also aid on-site requirements for such large events, such as registration and badge production. 

Increasingly, event management tools are available as online resources, which enables staff working remotely to access them and can avoid limitations on the number of users and required licences. With the increase in use of laptops, smart phones etc, -these web-based tools for planning events can only make event planning easier – not just for the organisation planning the event but for attendees too, and anything which makes it easier for attendees and delegates to book and confirm attendance at an event can only be a good thing!

Corporate Events

Its very frustrating when you have travelled to a location, only to be told by reception staff that they haven’t heard of the event you are supposed to be attending and there are no signs anywhere to tell you where to go – as this is when people just want to turn around and go home.


Setting Up A Business

If an unforeseen accident happens at your event, who pays?As we all become increasingly aware of our legal rights, and with access to legal services become more widely available, more and more individuals and companies will resort to legal action to address any losses incurred either to property or as a result of personal injury.


Branded Live Events

This is built around the customer’s experience (at the Live Event) of interacting with the Brand in a seemingly natural environment, which is why drinks, phone network and social networking brands do so much with live music in particular. Such brands are looking for new and different ways with which to interact with new potential – and particularly young – customers and there is no better way than with Branded Live Entertainment.


Event Management

There are a number of charities that are also looking for volunteers to help out with events too as well as a number of Event Management qualifications that can be obtained. The function of live events management involves much planning and attention to detail, so is suitable for people who thrive on this kind of pressure.



Sub-letting can give you some welcome extra income, as you rent areas of your office your business is not using – you’re heating and lighting them, after all, so they may as well have people in them. If you want full control this is the way to go, as well as being cheap per square foot – as long as you take into consideration you’ll be doing all the admin and paying all the bills.


Event Insurance

A wave of litigation and expensive settlements means that H&S and insurance are two very hot topics for anyone putting on an event nowadays and there are stringent laws and guidelines covering both. Very recent parliamentary action is starting to curtail the personal accident claims and ‘ambulance chaser’ industry, but events organisers still need to be covered and protected.
