Event Management

 

Part of your Team

 

At Outsourced Events we live and breathe event management. Our enthusiastic and friendly team of event professionals have decades of event industry experience between them. By working with us you are effectively able to access this expertise and energy through your very own OE event manager, who will bring a whole raft of extra resources and insight to your event planning and management.

Your brand integrity is important to us, which is why we’ll approach your company in the same way we approach our own company, with professionalism and passion. With minimum training, we can be embedded and running as a direct extension to your team within a week.

 

Event Industry Knowledge

 

Our passion is matched only by our industry knowledge and know-how. Whether you want an individual service or a full end to end event planning and management service, we can tailor our service to suit your budget, your event and your internal processes.

As well as a deep understanding of what’s involved in setting up and running an event, we also have access to an extensive network of contacts and can bring in new services at a moment’s notice. This all allows you to effectively scale up or scale down your event related operations at short notice, without the need to increase headcount.

 

End to End Event Management

 

SplunkLive! End to End Event Management

We provide a comprehensive end to end event management service that spans a range of services, from venue sourcing to onsite presence and post event reporting. We can provide as little or as much support as you require, whether you’re putting on a small CXO dinner or a huge annual conference.

We’ll not only help you put together your financial plan, but we can help keep you on budget by delivering cost savings and economies of scale through the relationships we have with venues and suppliers, as well as our value added communications. We can even help you supplement your marketing budget through sponsorship selling on your behalf.

We’ll look after all your communications activity, from signage and design to the internet connections and electric sockets, as well as manage all the vendors involved in making your event a huge success. We’ll even staff your booths for you.

 

Focused on Data

 

Event management is about so much more than planning for the big day. Data is an essential ingredient and resource in creating events that not only leave your delegates wanting more, but in developing informed and tactical follow-up marketing and lead generation strategies in the weeks and months following your event.

Our advanced software and API allows us to provide a true end to end data management system that is fully customisable to the specific needs and KPIs of your marketing strategy. We’ll even cleanse and migrate all the delegate data collected at your event to sit in your own templates, so your team can view it on your systems.

A key part of this service offering is our badging and onsite registration software, which allows your staff to check in delegates and print their badges in seconds instead of minutes. Not only does this make queues at the check-in desk a thing of the past, but it allows you to use QR codes to track delegate activity around your event.
