Have you ever been in need of just a little event planning help? Perhaps you wanted someone to help find a unique venue to impress your client for an off-site meeting. Or maybe you just needed some fun suggestions for a company team building activity. Or you just simply had some questions related to minimum guarantees for a catered event and wanted some help reviewing your catering contract?
Hiring a professional event planner often means handing over the reins for the entire function to someone else and while they definitely have the knowledge, expertise and connections to help plan your event, they can be too expensive for most people or companies to afford and in most cases they won’t take on the small stuff anyways. This is where the Eventsage team comes in!
With 50 years of combined experience planning corporate events, conferences, team buildings and incentive trips, we understand that planning is time-consuming and can be quite stressful, especially when you already have a jam-packed to-do list. As professional planners working for large event agencies, we were often in the position to have to turn down business that didn’t make sense for our companies whether it be for budgetary or staffing reasons. Time and time again we had to tell companies “No. Unfortunately we can’t help you with your event.” Those experiences left us with a strong desire to change the system. Thus Eventsage was born. Our mission is to give everyone, at any organization, access to a professional event planning team when they need it!
Through our Sage Support service, Eventsage provides “light-touch” event planning support giving you as little, or as much help as you need with any of your small or medium sized events, meetings, team buildings, group activities and more. Half the price of regular event planning companies, we provide an affordable, boutique service to meet all your needs. Think of us as your personal event concierge, sharing our expertise so you can shine!
Event planning help with our Sage Support service…
More than just event advice, our Sage Support service provides light-touch meeting or event planning support to anyone planning a small to medium-sized function across Greater Vancouver.
We believe in working smarter not harder. Sometimes that means asking for help. By taking some tasks off your plate, we help you get back to all the other things you need to accomplish. We work behind the scenes so you can shine!
We provide a curated list of venues within your budget, preferred neighbourhood, and requirements and estimate pricing. Unique options, trusted staples and newcomers are our specialty. Once you’ve shortlisted your favourites, we arrange site-inspections to ensure the venues meet all your needs, introduce you to venue managers, and give preliminary recommendations on space planning.
Food & Beverage Suggestions
We help with menu planning, customization, food and beverage pairing, and minimum guarantees to ensure you stay within budget while making sure none of your guests go home on an empty stomach. Worried about the environmental impact of your event? We compile waste reduction plans and make arrangements for leftover food collection and donation.
Event Decor, Activities & Gift Ideas
Who has time to scour the internet endlessly for ideas? Let us do the digging for you. We keep informed on current trends in the market, have access to an arsenal of supplier partners and love to brainstorm creative concepts. Whether you’re looking for unique non-floral centrepieces, exciting group activities for your next corporate team building, or fresh swag items, we’ll compile a list of ideas, provide pricing estimates and coordinate service contracts with vendors.
Curating Entire Experiences
Sometimes an event starts off small and then grows into something much bigger than you originally anticipated. Whether you’re planning a cocktail party, product launch, corporate retreat, holiday party, offsite meeting, entertaining clients, birthday parties or anything else for that matter, just let us know what you need (venues, entertainers, decor, catering…) and we’ll make it happen!
Additional Support Services
If the above services aren’t quite what you’re looking for, we can also help with contract review and revisions, contingency planning, budgeting, set-up support, planning templates, checklists and more!
