How To Prepare for a Busy Event Season

How To Prepare for a Busy Event Season

After experiencing what will go down as one of the hardest years for the event industry because of Covid-19 shut downs, the year ahead looks brighter and busier than ever. 

Both party rental companies and venues alike are double-booked because of last year’s postponements.

As government restrictions loosen over the next year, as an event business you may even be booking out further than before. 

We’re sharing a few tips on how to prepare for this “new” busy event season:

Maintain and Clean Inventory

If you are a seasoned venue or party rental company, you know how important it is to regularly clean, touch up and/or replace your inventory of tables and chairs. If your inventory was sitting over the last year, be sure to do a thorough check and make sure nothing was worn or damaged in storage.

Update Inventory

After maintaining your current inventory, also think about what inventory you may need to fill a busier event schedule.

Do you need to order more plastic folding tables or sneeze guards to maintain safety precautions? 

Also consider the trends that have developed in the last year. Despite the lift on event capacities, customers may still opt for more intimate events. Should you consider specialty chairs such as cross back chairs?

Get Organized

What did last year teach you about your event business? Developing systems and processes is the best way to maximize time, efficiency and earnings.

Consider new software such as an inventory management system like Goodshuffle Pro which many of our customers use. 

Are your website and contracts up to date with new safety precautions? Make sure everything is squared away on the back end to better ensure you can dive right in when you event season begins.
