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 Three)

 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 Plan Implementation

  1. Event Tickets

It is important to finalize your basic event information as soon as possible. You will need this information for your tickets. Information such as what, where, when need to be included on your ticket.  The other item that needs to be included is a ticket number. This should be on the ticket so that you can control the number of tickets sold verse the number not sold. You will need this for your final reconciliation. You can also use the ticket numbers as a control for your silent and live auctions. As long as you have the ticket holders name, you can use the number as a control rather. This is a much easier method than having the winner write out his/her name during the auction.
