The Importance of Hiring a Qualified Los Angeles Event Planner





You only get one shot at putting on a memorable business event or wedding, so donât gamble on planning. Here is a checklist for identifying a good organizer.

Just about everyone has a general idea of what makes a good event planner: Organized, creative, and attentive to the needs of the client are some of the things that readily come to mind.

But regardless of whether youâre looking for corporate catering or wedding catering in Los Angeles, there are additional characteristics that define qualified event planners:

Leadership talent/impactful persona - This is one of those squishy concepts that are talked about in almost every business. But being able influence the teams of people involved in events, both in the planning and execution stages, is critically important. Picture these moments: âCatering company, youâll need to plan for big appetites because this is a group of athletes.â âDJ, letâs put together a music program that appeals to the broad range of ages of guests.â âTent people, give us at least three ideas on how we can work around this sloped site.â

Flexibility - Here are things that can wrong at events: Weather. Catering truck has an accident on the way over. Ring bearer loses his tie. Corporate sponsor has a PR crisis offsite. Drunk partygoer falls into the buffet table. Something always goes wrong. Qualified Los Angeles caterers might be a little bit better at these things because many cut their teeth on movie sets, which have their own set of unexpected incidents. But the astute client should throw a curve ball at their event planner in early meetings, just to see how the planner responds.

Communications skills and technology use - A good corporate caterer will always be buttoned up on informing clients about what is unfolding in the planning stages and at getting proper approvals. But for more sophisticated clients that means also using event management software and apps, and paying attention to how the client prefers to communicate, be it through texts, emails, phone calls, or face-to-face meetings.

Negotiating skills - Sure, your event planner might have talked you into a wedding catering contract that was a little bit pricier than you planned. But that means he or she might be equally talented at negotiating the best prices from event vendors. Every event should have some wiggle room for all players.

Eye on the bottom line - In a similar vein, no one wants surprises in the final bill. Wedding catering in Los Angeles is far more about the budgets of regular folks than those of Pippa Middleton and Jason Stratham (both married in 2017, not to each other).

Of course all of this boils down to having experience in catering and event planning. Your event might be a once-in-a-lifetime affair, but you really want someone who does these week after week, month after month, and year after year.

Why the Chemistry Between Venue Event Planners and Caterers Matters
Higher-end catering is about more than fresh ingredients and master chefs. The food and the venue have to work together–as do the people running both. Perhaps a term used in catering and event planning, “ballet service,” sums up the importance of a well-coordinated event. It specifically refers to synchronized meal service, where a line of servers places a meal in front of each guest at the same time. It takes timing, coordination, planning – and grace. Every guest is treated equally...
