Send to Kindle

(SPARKAH NYC – For Immediate Release) Have you ever taken care of a child all day for the first time ever?

I’m not talking about your own child that you love and care about. I’m talking about someone else’s child that you like and cute-about.

How’d that work out for you?

going from managing an event in one industry to an event in a different industry is like trading kids for the weekend with your Mongolian neighbor

There’s a lot there that never meets the eye — n’est pas?

Well, imagine suddenly taking care of several hundred grumpy, irritable, jet lagged, executives from dozens of different cultures and languages from all over the world. This will pose all sorts of stuff that never meets a lot of other body parts of yours. Even if you have experience managing events, going from managing an event in one industry to an event in a different industry is like trading kids for the weekend with your Mongolian neighbor. Don’t do it — without qualified help from a Event Planner.

Well, if your last event wasn’t the smoothest ride, before convention and trade show season this year, have a talk. Consult with one of the the Top 100 who actually have experience in your industry. They are just a scroll wheel away…
