Whether they're throwing a corporate fundraiser, a concert in the park, or a wedding in Colorado's backcountry, there's one thing all our hosts have in common. They want to throw an event that tops the charts and leaves their guests reminiscing about the good times for years to come.
While throwing an event of epic proportions may sound daunting, it doesn't have to be. Here are a few things you can do to ensure your event is one of a kind.
Hire a professional to handle event production.
There is more to a successful event than the venue and the guest list. Details like the lighting, the music, and the placement of the bar can make a significant impact on the success of your event, and a professional event production company has the know-how to get it just right. They can also help you get the proper licensing and staff to comply with the codes and regulations of your event space. Don't let the tedious details bog you down — hire a professional to handle event production.
Choose a fun and appropriate theme.
The right theme can take your event from blah to unforgettable. How? The best parties allow you to escape from your reality and let loose. They invite you to leave your troubles at the door and transport you to another world for the evening. From black-tie galas to corporate carnivals, your event's theme has the power to get guests excited, give them space to try something new, and encourage them to have a little fun. Want some ideas?

Hire a professional bar staff.
Did you know the bar is one of the most visited areas of any event? No matter your theme, it's safe to say your guests will be visiting the bar multiple times throughout the evening. So hiring a professional staff is crucial. A well-trained bartender will ensure that drinks are tasty and made in a timely manner. Your bartenders are also one of the only staff members your guests may talk to throughout the evening. The right person will make your guests feel welcome and be happy to answer any questions they may have.
Start planning your event well in advance.
One of the biggest mistakes we see event first-timers make is thinking an event can be planned in a matter of weeks. Getting the right venue, permits, caterers, bartenders, and more takes time. It's important to give yourself 4-6 months to plan and execute your event. Worried about pulling it off? An event production company can take all the tedious tasks off your plate and ensure you don't miss a thing.
Throwing an unforgettable event is all about getting the proper planning in place and being able to roll with punches as they come. With the right people in place, you can sit back and enjoy the festivities, knowing every detail will be addressed. But don't wait to hire a professional! The best companies book quickly.
