Why choose Enable East to manage your event?

We know how important an effective event can be: from increasing employee engagement, to effectively communicating with your target markets, events are a way of telling your story and facilitating the exchanging of ideas and visions to move your organisation forward.

 

Event planning and design:

East of England Well-being Show

We will work with you from the outset to help design and plan your event:

  • The ‘When and Where’ – We have an established network of event venues on our books and can negotiate competitive rates on your behalf. We can advise you on the best location for your event if you require it to be held offsite, alternatively we can work with you to find a suitable venue within your organisation for in-house events
  • Keeping your delegates energised – Venues often provide a ‘day delegate’ rate which includes refreshments and lunch/dinner – however we have worked with many local suppliers to provide these at venues which do not offer in house catering or if you are hosting your event at your organisation
  • Shaping the day – We will meet with you to discuss what you want to achieve from the event, and design an agenda which will deliver against these objectives. We can advise on possible speakers, provide cutting edge ideas to encourage audience participation and ensure there is just the right mix of activities and learning opportunities included in the event to keep your delegates engaged
  • Putting things in motion – Having established all the design elements of your event, we then take control of making your ideas a reality. We will liaise with and book your venue, negotiate the best possible rates, organise catering and utilise our excellent relationships with suppliers to bring your event in within budget

 

Marketing your event:

An amazing event is only amazing if people are there to appreciate it – let us take that pressure off by marketing your event to your target event-marketingaudience:

  • The ‘Who’ – We will work with you to define your target audience for your event and ensure the content provides them with a valuable return on their time invested
  • Promotional Strategy – Once your target audience has been identified, we can develop a strategy by which to engage them and promote your event. This could incorporate flier design and printing, social media content plans, advertising in local and regional press, promotion through our established network of relevant contacts and organisations and producing promotional copy to be included in your internal communications channels. We have a range of partners we work closely with to ensure news of your event reaches the right people
  • Get people talking – Perhaps you want to initiate conversation with potential delegates prior to the event: we have experience of establishing successful social media pages and websites which can provide a platform for discussion and help update delegates with the latest developments regarding the event

 

Event collateral production:

A good event needs fantastic materials to support it: from innovative delegate pack production to the development of thought provoking delegate-packspresentations, we can help build a collateral package that packs a punch.

  • Inspire your delegates – Providing a comprehensive, well designed delegate pack adds substance to an event by offering supporting materials and resources that enhance your delegates’ experience. We work closely with our supplier network to design and produce products such as delegate packs, handouts, professional presentations and invitation cards all of which will sit within your organisation’s branding and reflect your individual identity. See more on our Delegate Pack Production service
  • Provide follow up – Don’t let the momentum your event creates fall flat once it’s over – producing a report can help encourage further debate and keeps actions on the top of people’s agendas. We can take comprehensive notes during the event which capture the key learning and talking points, and produce an attractive engaging report that can be disseminated to delegates or uploaded on to your website
  • Capture it on film – We can ensure that the spirit of your event is captured in a professionally produced film which can be used to promote your organisation through your website and social media. Working with partners who have vast experience in filming and production at institutions such as the BBC, our film production service includes storyboarding, scripting, filming and professional lighting equipment, editing, design of interactive graphics and incorporation of music

 

On the day:

Let us take the strain by co-ordinating every aspect of your event on the day itself. Our experienced team of event co ordinators will take care of setting up the venue, co ordinating refreshments, booking delegates in, ensuring the smooth running of projectors, laptops and other electronic equipment, collating feedback cards and clearing up at the end of the day.
