Event Staffing Toronto: Book with Tigris for Stellar Results!
When a client calls the Tigris office inquiring about event staffing in Toronto, in many cases, they have a precise idea of the type of brand ambassador they are looking for, and the details regarding their event. Time is money! So this being said, having a clear understanding of your needs will rapidly speed up the process of booking and scheduling a team for your event/promotion. If you need a little assistance with the process, or are on a tight time schedule, referencing our online submission form is a guideline.
First, we’d like to know some general details about your event. Here are a few things we will need to know:
* When is your event taking place?
* How many days/weeks/months is the event?
* How many hours a day will you need events staff?
* How many events staff will you need per shift?
* Are you providing uniforms, would you like Tigris to create and source uniforms, or is the uniform something simple, like a black t-shirt and pants, which the events staff will provide?
We will also be asking you if you require any experiential marketing support such as event planning, event marketing, event management or creative services such as a custom display or installation. Don’t forget to let us know which type of temporary staffing service you require. Tigris provides sales staff, brand ambassadors, promotional models, and field market researchers. They are similar but also very different. If you’d like clarification on this, we recommend you spend a few moments reviewing these sections of our site under “temporary staffing”.
Woah! It may sound like we want your life story, but we can assure you that all of these questions do speed up the process. When you have an answer to these questions, we can immediately compose a quote for you on our services. In some cases, we have been able to provide staffing for clients within 24 hours or less, depending on the region. If you do not have all the answers to the questions listed above for your event, don’t worry, we can still get a quote started for you 🙂 And don’t get us wrong, more lead time is ALWAYS better than less.
After you’ve received your complimentary quote or proposal from one of our account managers, make sure you take the time to review the details to ensure it adheres to your needs. It’s common courtesy to confirm receipt of a quote and of course, if there are any questions, it’s best to pick up the phone and give us a call to review so the quote/proposal can be tweaked as required. If you have any uncertainty over the # of hours, staff, services you require, Tigris can also supply a quote with multiple options so you can easily compare costs (e.g. 2 staff per day vs. 4 or 4hrs, 6hrs or 8hrs per shift).
Once you’ve decided to go ahead with Tigris for your event staffing and/or experiential marketing needs, we will put together an event services agreement and invoice for sign off and approval so we can get started on your booking. Unlike many other agency’s, Tigris is extremely specific with the staff they send opportunities to; which may be based on geography, special requests (e.g. look language or skill) and experience. This allows us to manage logistics and client requests effectively and supply accurate/up to date availability of candidates interested in the opportunity.
4 Tips for Selecting a Company your for Event Staffing Toronto Initiatives – or any City for that Matter!
You may have hired events staff before, or maybe this is your first time! Either way, we’ve composed a list of 4 tips when hiring for event staffing Toronto (and other locations) and selecting the appropriate staff for your team. Although we have amazing events staff across Canada, some may fit your needs better than others.
1. Factor You Brand’s Image
The ambassadors you choose from our exclusive roster for your event should reflect your brand’s image. These individuals will be engaging with consumers and acting as a memorable extension of the brand. For example, the events staff chosen for Taste of Nature differed from those chosen for Phasion Estates Winery. Our brand ambassadors for Taste of Nature were instructed to wear little to no makeup, wear their hair tied back, and embody a natural ‘fresh face’ look. Our promotional models for Phasion Estates wore full makeup, their hair was down and styled, and they wore black high heels. It’s all about the image best fit for your brand!
2. Understand The Needs of Your Event
Is this a results driven promotion? Do you need to have 30,000 samples distributed in 2 days, or 10,000 surveys completed in a couple weeks? You must factor the size and needs of your event to conclude how many staff you will need, gender, age and ethnicity. Tigris will further hand pick results motivated staff for the program to ensure deliverables are met and exceeded.
3. Share Your Company And Product Information
Be as transparent as possible with us when providing information about your company. It is our goal to ensure our events staff are fully equipped with key messaging, product knowledge and general details. The majority of the time, consumers believe our events staff work directly for the brands they are representing, because they are THAT good!
4. Do Not Hire Solely Based On Looks
It is important to factor in an individual’s relevant experience and personality when selecting who you’d like to
represent your brand. For example, we’ve recently worked with a client who required events staff with a background in theatre for their event. We composed a presentation with photos, bios and experience so our client knew exactly who they would be getting and enhance their ability to select the best fit for the job.
