Event Planning Companies Toronto
Whatever the task may be, you can get an event planner for that. Event planning companies have been skyrocketing throughout the past decade, and they’re not slowing down! Not only are there courses on event planning, but post-secondary schools are offering event planning programs full time, and enrollment is growing at a fast rate.
Whether it is event management, special events planning, or sport and event marketing, people are really starting to notice the growing demand of event planners. The excitement of event planning has a hold on many people, which is great! Some people are more creative and resourceful than others, and that’s okay. That’s why there are so many event planning companies Toronto. Someone needs to do the job, and do it precisely. After all, we have to admit that being in the event planning industry, we have a tad bit of perfectionism to deliver the most exception events!
Over the past 11 years, Tigris has had many opportunities to take on the role of event planning for various clients. One of the biggest events we manage the planning and production for is for our long-time client, CHIN Radio, located on College St. in Toronto.
Since 2004, Tigris President, Serena Schwab, has taken on the lead role of event planner for the Miss & Mr. CHIN Bikini Pageant and is supported by others in the office to help everything come together. From casting competitors to securing sponsors, there’s a lot of work to be put into the production. When planning a big event, it is important to ensure that every aspect of the event is covered. The easiest way to keep track of everything is to form a detailed critical path. Here’s a sample checklist of things we look for when planning the Miss & Mr. CHIN Bikini Pageant– of course every event is different, but this is a great guideline for planning an event.
