Can you blow dry your own hair? Of course you can. Does a professional hairstylist in a salon do better?
Of course they do as they add the creativity and finesse that their talent and years of training allows them to. Can you decorate your own house? Of course you can. Does a professional decorator do it better? Of course they do as they add the efficiency, quality and finish that their profession allows them to. Can you run your own events around the world? Of course you can. Does an event agency do it better? Of course they do as they add an experienced perspective, a knowledgeable process and a skill set to the proceedings.
A good agency will be able to wax lyrical about all the events they have done around the globe and will know more than you do – but you would expect that. A good agency will save you an enormous amount of time in the lead up to an event and you will learn to trust them very early on. A good agency, if you have never used one before, should on a minimum of 3 occasions, make you utter those immortal words “I would never have thought of that” to yourself and a good agency will run the event on site with such efficiency that it all just seems to “happen”. There is a caveat. Some hairdressers and decorators do not deliver what they promise. Choose your agency wisely.
Experience is everything!
