Why an Interview,,,

Over the years we have been able to meet and talk with some very interesting people. They have shared with us their knowledge and have provided us with a great deal of insight as to how and why festivals and events work and why they are so important to our communities and to the Province of Ontario. With this in mind, we decided that we wanted you to meet and hear from some of the wonderful people who work so hard to provide us all with such wonderful Ontario Festivals and Events! We are pleased and proud to present "THE INSIDE SCOOP"!

Developing An Auction Dinner (Part One - Continued)

 I have had the privilege of attending and working with thousands of auction dinners throughout North America for over 20 years. Some had several thousand attendees, while others only had fifty or so. The articles that follow are meant to give an overview of how successful auction dinners are conceived, planned and managed.

For anyone who wants a complete "Developing An Auction Dinner" package, complete with working manuals, workbooks, sample forms and PowerPoint presentations, visit my Festival and Event Planning website.

Event Development

19. Event Materials

Developing and producing event materials is an important part of controlling your event. These items include: event tickets, raffle tickets, posters, sponsorship letters, auction receipts, silent auction bid sheets, etc. Try to think of all your needs and then develop the materials needed.

20. Event Equipment

You need to make a list of all the extra equipment you will need to hold your event. Some of it you may already have, but others you may have to rent or purchase. If you are going to hold your event repeatedly, you may want to purchase some of the items rather than rent. Here is a partial list to help you start.

·         Easels for framed art

·         Raffle buckets

·         Signage

·         Pens, pencils & paper

·         Adding machine

·         Computer

·         Printer

·         Charge card machines

·         Calculator

·         Balloons

·         Site and table decorations

·         Name tags
