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 - 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 Plan Implementation 

14. Sound System

Sound systems are likely the last thing you worry about in planning an event. More events have “crashed and burned” because of poor sound quality. Listen to the existing sound system BEFORE the event. If it is not of the highest quality, rent a replacement system and test it also. The problem may be with the acoustics of the room. If that’s the case, you may have to hire a professional sound expert to help you find a solution. Don’t underestimate the need for quality sound.

15. Signage

Sometimes it’s easier to hand write a sign then to have one professionally made. This would be a big mistake. The quality of your event shows in your “little touches”. Most hand written sign are tacky and should avoided. However, with the advancement of computers and their printers, computer generated signs can be both professional and interesting as long as whoever is making them knows what they are doing!
