Packed full of useful and exciting information, this session will cover the fundamental knowledge needed to flawlessly execute events ranging from 10-1,000 guests and beyond. What steps do you need to take to get prepared for events ahead of time? We all know BEO meetings and scheduling staff are imperative, but don't overlook the power of pre-con and group resume meetings, event timelines, and preparing BEO and setup packets for your employees. What steps can you take on event day to make everyone's job easier? Also covered will be delegation techniques for efficiency and fairness, how to set up the BOH for success, how to run plated meals and buffets, how to create floor sections and set up banquet portable bars, and much, much more! Multiple demonstration videos will be included. This 60 minute session will provide attendees with knowledge that would normally take event professionals years to learn on the job.
