Event planning and production can be very rewarding, whether a staff
person, a supplier or the event planner or proeucder. When someone
finally is THE event planner or event producer we know that should mean that the person is both knowledgable and experienced.
follows then, that the event planner or event producer must have enough
knoweldge and experience to know which vendors and contractors to bring
into the event, as well as a good plan.  With experience and knowledge
should come self assurance and the ability to trust. If the event
planner doesn't trust his vendors or contractors he'll have a tendency
to micromanage. Becoming over worked and not allowing people to do
their job results. This could negatively affect performance and an
event that doesn't meet the potential of its vendors.

Trust and
empowerment are crucial to success. Its' amazing how much one can
accomplish, often more than you'd ever expect, when a supplier feels
respected and empowered by the planner and can take ownership of his
part of the project.

Not to sound simplistic, but being able to trust and empower  becomes a "win-win" for all and a successful event production.

    Event production requires lot of experience and imagination to make the event successful and memorable. There will be brainstorming, sharing of ideas and even arguments just to make the job done. Once the event run and ends well then all the commendation will be yours. And a potential to get more projects.

    Thank you. I had hoped to have more comments, but perhaps a lot of people just read and move on. Hopefully they’re thinking about what they read to help them at some point. My reason for blogging is to hopefully help and inform.

    I’m surprised that this posting hasn’t had more responses. I agree with you completely, it is definitely the event planners responsibility to ensure the overall success of their events. They are the glue that binds, so to speak. Great posting…thanks for sharing, Christopher
