Planning an event for 200 people in 7 weeks, of course we can do that! Isn’t that what event planners are for? We were honoured to have been asked by the Local Apprenticeship Committee to help them plan the 51st Annual Graduation Banquet.
The banquet was held at Algonquin College. We have never worked at their venue before, the food was fantastic! Our responsibilities for this event included managing ticket sales, working with the venue on logistics and catering, and managing registration the night of the event.
My favourite feature of planning this event had to be that we brought some creativity to the tables that they’ve never had before. I love adding a little unexpected to our events. We created centrepieces using old hub caps and napkin rings using pipe clamps and large (very heavy) bolts. The reaction of the committee members was exactly what I was hoping for.
The event was successful and ran smoothly. What else can we ask for!
