Understanding Your Vision:
Before we can start to develop your event, it is imperative for us to understand what you would like to achieve in holding the event. It is important to be aware where you have held events previously; what worked for you and what did not. We can then discuss your budget and how much of the project Melt Productions will be involved in and what we will do to assist you.
Creating A Detailed Project Plan:
Project plans are important for any event, both to understand deadlines and to recognise expectations and time frames. We will work with you to prioritise tasks that you believe are urgent and work with your day-to-day schedule to ensure everything we are doing is transparent and matches the ethos of your company.
Understanding Changes Are Inevitable:
Our experienced team have superb organisational and time management skills, through facilitating countless successful meetings. Despite this, you cannot avoid the fact that event planning is an unpredictable process. Our invaluable team are flexible, approachable and are able to manipulate tasks to adapt to changes and any obstacles that pop up along the way. We will work with you and review the project plan to re-prioritise when the situation calls for it.
Details, Details, Details:
No event is successful without attention to detail. We ensure that every contract is scrutinised, rates negotiated and function sheets double checked. If the venue is not aware of the finer details, then they cannot provide your delegates with the experience that you wish to provide. We use our wealth of knowledge and reflect on what has worked in the past to develop your events in the future, and getting it wrong is not an option.
That’s a Wrap!
Once your event is complete we continue to work with you to ensure that the event met your expectations and the experience for your delegates was smooth and fulfilling. We can develop a clear and concise breakdown of charges for the whole period that all parties agree with.
It is important for us to reflect on the event and obtain your feedback. This way we can develop and make sure that we further exceed your expectations on your next conference, meeting, product launch, website, venue find or whatever it might be that maximise your time can do to ensure you can concentrate on your core business.
Events can benefit your business in more ways than one…
Here are just two!
Using Your Space:
Do you have warehouse or outside space that can be used for an event installation? Hiring event space is a huge part to event budgets, why fork out for a venue when you have a perfectly useable space that you manage?
An event production company can transform any space into an unimaginable event. From creating a rainforest inside your loading bay, to building a festival site in your car park.
Not only would you save money on your own Christmas parties or summer celebrations, but you could potentially offer your creative event space to other businesses in your area. Selling tables or tickets to Winter Balls, Charity Galas or Summer Celebrations as well as seeing financial revenue from the event.
Celebration events of this nature are also a great way to develop relationships with clients, potential clients and suppliers. Offering tables as gifts or even competition prizes can create a big buzz and engagement with your brand. And everything just becomes a little more achievable when the event is held on your premises. (As well as you saving a fair bit of cash).
On top of this enlisting the help of a professional bar company could make you revenue from bar sales, however it is vital you are operating within licensing laws and heath and safety. All of which would be covered by an event production company that knows how.
The possibilities are endless when you have useable space, if you are interested in a free event space evaluation get in touch with Melt Productions. We carry out a feasibility study of your space and offer ideas as to what is achievable, we have created winter wonderlands in workshops and award ceremonies in car parks there really is no limit to what can be achieved.
The age of cliché team building days are firmly in the past, with huge leaps in technology influencing the way in which we communicate it is crucial to adapt and understand how these developments affect your workforce.
The most noticeable is the constant craving for something new and exciting, living in an information rich world creates hungry thumbs swiping for the next nugget of stimulus.
As an employer you must question… How do you keep your employees engaged? Not only with the task in hand but with each other, always developing and building a solid team dynamic.
As event creators we must be at the forefront of technology and communication platforms, using these platforms to engage your employees, increasing face to face interactions and providing them with new and exciting ways to connect with and learn about each other.
A great example of this is the boom in 'Escape Rooms’ or 'Locked-In' challenges. These are not a new phenomenon, team building activities like these have been around for years they have just undergone a re-vamp using immersive technology such as Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality. Not only this the addition of lasers, lighting, smoke machines all add to a greater immersive experience.
Whether it’s a ‘Crystal Maze’ style physical challenge or testing the groups mental strengths, all are designed to increase communication, engage the entire group and find leaders. Putting your employees into a challenge with some jeopardy will always bring them together, importantly allowing them to experience new and different ways of communication.
If you’re looking for something extreme, taking your workforce out of the office away form the norm. Developing communication, changing perceptions and pushing boundaries get in touch with Melt Productions. We have out of the box event ideas in the new age of team building.
