To increase public awareness of the exhibition, Lateral Events Management will adopt various marketing strategies. The company will start an e-mail contact list of the families, friends, and companies interested in learning about the exhibition. When they come across the news, articles or information, they forward to every person on the list. The company will also add a catchy quote to the taglines of the companies’ emails by creating an e-mail signature. This will remind the public on the importance of the issue at hand. The company will also create its own website in support of the exhibition. The created website will educate the public and make a point to them. On the websites, the colorful web stickers will make it easy for the public to contact the concerned organizers. The website will also contain the location of the Brighton Centre and the purpose of exhibitions.
The company will also have radio talk shows. It will make a statement on what the exhibition will be, on the importance and venue of the exhibition. Additionally, the company will put meaningful stickers on the street walls, and billboards. We will also attend community meetings and local political forums. The company will speak about the issue and give provisions for questions from the public. The companies will also give presentations at the community events, local lodge and local libraries (Mehndiratta, 2008).
The presentation will submit an announcement of the event to post flyers around the city so that the public knows about it. Lateral events management will also write to local media, newspapers and television stations. The company will develop a professional and friendly relationship with the media. It will also campaign through the word of mouth by telling the public about the exhibition. The company will also write to the newsletters to focus on the marketing of the exhibition. Considering the cost of newsletters, the company will also send e-mail newsletters to people to confirm their attendance.
The manager needs to come up with an event proposal. The event proposal is a document that outlines the reason for the exhibition. Proposal also dictates what the company is planning to carry out. This will enable the manager to focus on the companies involved and a directive for delivery decisions and planning. The document will also enable the manager to think ahead on the requirement and those companies that will be involved in running and organizing various events on the show. The crucial questions that the proposal will answer include what the event is all about, happenings at the event, a reason for the event, who is the exhibition for, who will run and plan the exhibition, cost of the exhibition, date of the exhibition and venue for the event. The manager also needs to put in details the event plan that will break down all the tasks and assign duties and deadlines for each concerned party. The manager should also regularly update the tasks or alter for proper posting.
Consequently, the manager needs to prepare a simple budget that caters for the projected costs, is very fast to complete but will offer crucial tools for monitoring and evaluating their expenditure. The events office needs to design the budget form that will help in estimating the expenditures. The budget should tally with the holder of the budget prior to spending. Core costs that might arise include transport, stationery, audition, venue, and printing. Other miscellaneous costs include security, decorations, speaker expenses, photography, and posting that should not be avoided. The manager’s office should contact the potential exhibitors four days prior to the event. The manager also needs to send letters to the exhibitors for suggestions and review before the invitations are made. The manager should also leave a few days after the deadline for replies from the potential exhibitors, to find out their attendance (Mehndiratta, 2008).
