The In’s and Out’s of Working with Event Planning Agencies in Toronto to Meet your Needs
Many people don’t realize that Tigris is a small business company capable not only staffing events but also conceptualizing, planning and executing them! This is one of the main reasons that our company re-branded in late December 2013 from ‘Tigris Personnel’ to ‘Tigris Incorporated’. The main objective of this name change was to refresh the brand identity of the company, and to alter its corporate image. As one of the top event planning agencies in Toronto, Tigris is fully integrated in personnel, promotions, marketing and events – not only temporary staffing (even though we do offer and excel in that component!) We also have a partnership with digital and creative agency to truly bring all of our ideas and clients brands to life!
Planning an event, regardless of the size, can be overwhelming. From site selection and food/beverage to decor, entertainment, lighting, linens and support staff such as photographers and hostesses, there are endless components to consider. As you can imagine, the # of emails and phone calls can be pretty crazy if you don’t keep yourself organized. Here at Tigris, we can plan your entire event from the branding of the promotional flyer to the acrobat you have in-between courses. Event planning can include budgeting, establishing dates, acquiring permits, developing a theme, arranging speakers, arranging décor and temporary staffing. Events, planned by many companies and industries, are a tool to market themselves, build business relationships, raise money or celebrate.
Each type of event is an excellent opportunity to build and increase your relationship with your customers. It is important to make this face-to-face encounter a meaningful one! At Tigris, we are experts in brand experiences and we recognize the value of advertising beyond the television screen. Our event planning expertise has been utilized for corporate galas and golf tournaments for KRG Children’s Charities and RONA, parades for St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation, bbq’s for Molson Canadian Cider in association with Bell Media, mobile/campus tours, street promotions and trade shows for countless companies including Taste of Nature, Zoom Media and Rogers (to name but a few)
Tigris is a leader in the industry and known as one of the top event planning agencies in Toronto. We know that event planning must be relevant and focused to make sure you are getting the message out to those who matter. We are able to work with you to manage the logistics of the program and see it through to the successful on site execution.
What Do You Want To Achieve from Event Planning Agencies in Toronto?
Before you call us for a free, no obligations quote, ask yourself this question: What are you hoping to achieve with your event and by liaising with an event planning agency? Are you looking to lean on someone’s creative expertise or take some stress and work off of your plate? Here are a few examples of events that highlight our skills.
From 2004 to 2011, Tigris supplied teams of professional promotional models to engage golfers to participate in fundraising initiatives for KRG Children Charities Fundraiser. The fundraising initiatives included mulligan tickets, raffle tickets, crack the safe, and scratch tickets. Our staff were also responsible for assisting with the overall execution of the vent. With the assistance of our promotional models, the event was able to fundraise over $20,000! We also assisted with the planning in 2005.
In 2011 and 2012, Tigris assisted Terrain Marketing with a wide range of events including 2 grand opening promotions for RONA in Edmonton and Calgary, two Moulin Rouge themed corporate events in Calgary and Toronto as well as four golf tournaments in Calgary, Edmonton, Kelowna and Toronto. For the corporate events specifically, Tigris was heavily involved in all of the planning and production for a VIP Thank You Night for RONA’s VIP customers. Some event planning agencies in Toronto are specific to the one city alone – but Tigris took care of both, traveling to Calgary for site checks and the execution. Our deliverables included impressive staging, lighting and AV along with sourcing a dance troupe, DJ, musicians as well as table decor (linens/centrepieces), hostesses, a photo booth and photographer with printed photos and giveaways for guests. The events were a smashing success! Guests ranted and raved about the exciting experience and re-affirmed their loyalty to RONA.
What about a product launch? Tigris knows how to generate buzz about absolutely anything! Last year, Tigris booked a male promotional model to promote the release of the sexually liberating novel, S.E.C.R.E.T for Random House on Feb. 5th. The promotional model accompanied the client to Kobo offices to distribute mardi gras beads and masks to Kobo employees for a fun publicity stunt.
From the simple to the sophisticated, Tigris’ capabilities are as flexible as they are diverse. Our client’s budgets may range from $500 to $500,000. We just need to know how big they want to build their house and what budget they have to work with to make it happen.
As you can see, Tigris is one of the most experienced event planning agencies in Toronto. While we are happy to staff your event, we would also love and would must rather take part from the beginning! Let’s work together – call us at 416. 283. 9119 today.
