Whether you are planning or selling an intimate home dinner party or a large scale complex multiday event… Someone must inspect the site to really know what you are getting into and explore potential upsell opportunities.

This session, drawn for 20+ years of experience and guided by a 32 pages checklist reviews all the points of an event site inspection. The questions to ask… Research to do before going. Who needs to attend? What tools to take… Asking all the important questions and getting answers for improving the guest's experience. Addressing logistics challenges for the staff -- where to cook? Security, parking, weather, Plan B considerations, resources, and refuse disposal. Plus, specific nuances for wedding events will be covered.

Head home with a format to follow -- so every site inspection is complete, void of surprises and potential opportunities explored!
