Your Live Event Staffing Plan

Your live event is just around the corner, which means you should be putting the finishing touches on your event staffing plan. If this is still on your “To-Do” checklist, don’t fret—there’s still time to create a last-minute staffing plan.

Use our guide to help you run a successful event using prepared talent who have the right skills, experience, and aptitude for last-minute staffing.

Recruit the Right People 

Hiring talent that is right for the job is a key element to a successful experience. Do this by partnering with an event staffing agency or a talent agency that has a seasoned list of talent to staff your event well.

At 360x Events and Promotions, we recruit live performers, actors, mascots, brand ambassadors, hosts, specialized talent, and more to staff any event—and quick.

We’re a nationwide agency that specializes in talent procurement and providing event support. In our world, “presentation is everything.” We ensure the talent you hire through us is professional and prepared so that your event runs as smoothly as possible.

Our goal is to solve your problems and simplify your life, and we have been doing this for our clients for over 20 years.

Hire the Right Number of People 

How do you know how many people to staff for an event?

Consider the following: 

  • How many people will attend the event? 
  • How long will the event last?
  • What kind of talent do I need to hire? 
  • What is my talent budget?

Our general rule of thumb is to hire more hands than you need while expecting people will not show up. For example, we send 120 bodies of talent to an event that booked 100 because we expect that a few people will not show up. That’s showbusiness, baby.

Set Clear Expectations

Communicate. Communicate. Communicate.

The talent you hire should know what is expected of them while they work the event. You can do this by providing information that guides the talent. Explain the following:  

  • What time should they arrive?
  • Where should they park?
  • Where can they leave their personal belongings?
  • Where can they pick up badges, uniforms, or any other required items?
  • Where should they be stationed?
  • How long will they be stationed?
  • What will they be doing? 
  • What should they do after their shift? 

In addition to answering these questions, you should provide:

  • A timeline of the day
  • A frequently asked questions page to help the talent prepare for any questions attendees may have
  • Any additional information relevant to your specific event

Providing your hired talent the resources to know what is clearly expected of them helps the event run efficiently. Furthermore, it also helps guests feel at ease and happier.

Setting clear expectations will help your event go as planned, eliminating the potential for the event to be confusing for anyone attending.

Know that the Show Must Go On 

Sometimes, things don’t go according to plan—and that’s okay! When your live event does finally come around, understand that some things may pop up that you weren’t prepared for. 

If that happens, remember the show must go on. Take any unexpected surprises in stride.

A last-minute staffing plan doesn’t have to be complicated, especially if you work with us at 360x Events. We procure top talent for events and are your one-stop shop for talent and event support.

Convention

Top Tips to Make Your Trade Show or Convention a Success

Do you have an upcoming trade show or convention on your calendar? At 360x Events and Promotions, we staff some of the biggest brands’ conferences and some of the most-attended trade shows.

Here are our tips for what makes a great experience!

Brand Everything!

From staff t-shirts to lanyards, giant digital signs to cocktails, reinforce your brand with visuals.

How to do that? You’ll need a great planner to imagine every opportunity to brand swag and decor, then some creatives to make it happen.

Share on Social

Your participants want to share their experiences so make it fun and easy! 

Think: QR codes to connect with social media, bespoke hashtags for your event and photo booths, live performers, and once-in-a-lifetime experiences that cry out “take a picture of me!”

Go Digital

Some people have truly embraced the virtual conference world. Other people are dying to be back in person…

Luckily, you can have your cake and eat it too with interactive apps, augmented reality opportunities, and big screen streaming options so your physical participants feel like they have access to the digital crowd and vice versa.

Send Them Away with Something to Remember

Gone are the days of a mousepad and a baseball cap cutting the mustard for swag takeaways. It’s time to get creative! (You’d be amazed at what fun and creative gifts people come up with at the trade shows we staff!)

Think outside the box and send people home with swag that will grace their homes and offices for years to come. Think blankets, speakers, cool hanging pendant lights, hand-tooled leather goods, vegan decals with 80s bands on them, and our fave… Inflatable unicorns!

Tease the Next BIG Thing!

You’re hosting a conference or trade show to accomplish a goal. Be clear on what metrics you’ll use to gauge success and plan everything backward from those goals.

Likely, you’ll have some long-term plans for your participants so, let them in on the next big thing. Motivating employees? Tease the next incentive trip. Bringing tradespeople together? Tease the next event you’ll be hosting.

Work With Our 360x Team!

At Events360x, we partner with some of the top brands to create a memorable event for all who attend. Our global network of talent allows us to assist your event coordinators with all their staffing needs. Worried about under/overstaffing? We’ve got you covered!

Your Guide to Creating a Memorable Live Event

“People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” —Maya Angelou

Do you want the ultimate key to creating a memorable live event? At 360x Events & Promotions, we’ve got you covered.

The number one rule for creating a memorable event is this: Create an experience that makes people feel wonderful and you’ll create a lasting connection!

Despite popular belief, it’s not about spending a fortune to create non-stop entertainment or throwing a list of high-profile speakers at your attendees, it’s about creating connection and impact.

So, follow along for some tips on how to create that memorable event that will blow the socks off your attendees.

Create an Unforgettable Entrance with Docents and Concierge Staffing

There is no better experience than arriving at your event with a dedicated staff just waiting to cater to your attendees’ every need. 

Greet your guests with smiling faces and all their questions answered.

It works for high-end hospitality and it will work for you.

Make It a Game!

Add elements of gamification to your event and watch the friendly competition ramp up a level.  Everyone loves to see their name in lights so have a board that’s highly visible where the leaders are displayed.

A little friendly competition never hurt anyone!

Get Creative with Name Badges

“Hello, My Name Is…” badges can be fun—especially if you offer stickers with fun filler words (think “bacon”)… but don’t stop there!

Think about your attendees: Are they elegant? Hip? Funny? Would a mathematical option appeal to your nerdier demographic?

Putting thought into the element your participants will wear every day is worth the time and investment.

Rethink the Agenda (and Networking!)

If COVID-19 taught us anything, it’s that digital is the way of the future. Use QR codes for agendas and consider using a networking app that allows participants to connect on social media with each other within the conference app.

Spice Up the Day with Visualizations

Hire artists to take the words that presenters are using and visualize them either in physical works or massive digital displays (or both).

Offer participants the opportunity to take the art home if they accomplish a certain level of participation or social sharing. Or, just give the art away at random. Surprises are delightful!

Incorporate Themes into Everything

From food to music, you can create memorable pods of experiential marketing using all five senses (careful with touch, of course!)

Think of areas of your event as islands of experience, then customize the environment to delight attendees with food, music, and even temporary tattoos and face paint (think tequila tastings and Dia de Los Muertos designs).

Don’t Forget the Follow-Up

Most companies strive to turn casual visitors into raving fans. Post-event, you’re likely to have raving fans at the ready. Don’t waste all the goodwill!

Make it easy to share pictures of your event on social media, and remind your attendees of the fun they had with photo montages posted to your company page.

Additionally, follow up with polls, surveys, and feedback opportunities. If you’re like us, you’re always striving to be better, and feedback is a great way to do more of what works (and less of what doesn’t!)
