Our approach to finding venues takes the practical and psychological into account. Naturally, the venue must tick the right boxes in terms of size, location, facilities, reputation, prestige, availability and budget. But we also want a venue that brings out the theme and atmosphere of your event, whether through specific architecture or design features, or what we can create within the space available.
Venue finding is part of the overall event management process that ensures everything comes together seamlessly on the day. We plan in detail to minimise risk and ensure nothing is left to chance, including insurance, back-up equipment, and weather and transportation contingencies. We are experienced at handling unforeseen events and last minute changes, a skill that was tested to the extreme in the early days of the pandemic.
We approach design from the audience perspective but with your objectives firmly in mind. We design all aspects of the experience from the moment guests arrive to the moment they leave, making sure your theme and messages are front and centre throughout. We also spend time designing the virtual aspects of events, such as the interface, camera positions and the way guests interact with content.
Production covers the many event management activities that transform design into reality. This includes the staging, seating, lighting, sound, staff, catering, entertainment and clean up. We can prepare all graphical elements such as banners, posters, presentations, videos, delegate packs and other literature, handling both the design and writing as required. We can also organise impressive merchandise and giveaways for guests.
Purple Patch is an experienced logistics coordinator that can manage all aspects of supply and delivery. We can hire and procure equipment and materials, and then manage their transportation, tracking, storage, security and disposal. We can ensure an orderly setup at the venue, including traffic planning and management. We can also handle people logistics such as travel arrangements for your staff, speakers and guests.
Our skilled onsite teams know how to provide the best event management support possible. We know your guests are the most important aspect, and we work hard to ensure they are enjoying themselves while getting the value you want them to get from the event. We are experienced stage managers, hosts, problem solvers and even guest wranglers. On the day, our only objective is to help you achieve yours.
