Fix It, Felix!
The Dilemmas of a Corporate Event Planner
I Got 99 Problems…
As an event planner or corporate client, have you had an event where things didn’t go as planned no matter organized you were?
Have you had a less-than-desirable experience with an event outside your typical work region?
Is your “go-to” provider still in business post-pandemic? Have they moved, changed industries, or retired?
When faced with a challenge, is your vendor’s response swift, and more importantly, does it meet your expectations? Or do you hear, “It is what it is?”
Of course, these event industry concerns are valid and worth discussing. Here, we’ll explore how The Full Pike addresses these issues.
When Things Go Awry
When things go awry (and they always will!), do you have a trusted and reliable Fixer to assist?
How do you solve a challenge on Sunday evening when the show starts Monday morning?
How do you know whom to contact in unfamiliar territory to fix your issues?
Partnering with reliable vendors isn’t always enough; when things don’t go as planned, you need someone to put out the fire AND solve the problem. You need a Fixer.
And that’s where Felix Pike comes into the picture. Let us assist you in understanding the advantages of having a local Fixer in the production business.
