Production for Mobile Event

People think that emotion and intuition have no place in the fast-paced environment of event production. I completely disagree. Time after time, it has been my intuition and emotional skills that has made the difference. So here is a breakdown of all the things I was responsible for:

  • Contacting and negotiating with suppliers
  • Selection of catering menu
  • Meetings with venue to iron out details
  • Meetings with technical collaborators
  • Updated the Women in Mobile web with event information
  • Dealt with sponsors
  • Selected team of people to work at the event
  • Liaise with speakers and their presentations
  • Proofread all texts in English
  • Help communication team
  • Special guests, attendees and press lists
  • Made sure everything was running smoothly on the day of the event
