Our experienced event team manages memorable events across the world. We offer a turnkey service for clients across many sectors. Some clients make full use of this turnkey approach and rely on us to manage the entire process whilst others select from the broad range of services you can see below dependent on the nature and size of the event.
We are finding that an increasing number of clients turn to us after they have kicked off an event project having found that their time is being taken up by the detail required. Once we are involved, your time becomes your own once again and you can focus on your core role.
Our network of MYT approved partners across the world gives us reach beyond our shores. The database of overseas venues that we have visited and often placed events in means that we are confident of passing accurate and informed advice to you.
MYT Professional Conference Organiser (PCO) Services
We believe Event Planning is a critical element of the whole process and to ensure the smooth and effective management of an event, a named Project Manager will be assigned to you from the beginning to co-ordinate, work with and be your main liaison. Your Project Manager will design a timeline project plan with an Operational Programme of Events to ensure that all tasks on the programme management are identified and actions managed on time and in budget. This highly detailed briefing document includes project timelines, points of contact, call for abstracts, set-up times and all the information needed for your event. This is collaborated on and shared with you throughout the planning stage and execution of your event.
Within the event planning we will organise site visits to the event destination and venues that adhere to your requirements. We will arrange meetings with the local partners, venues and suppliers, running through options and ensuring the most suitable partners are chosen.
Financial management requires careful planning and budgeting and is critical in the success of a conference as well as understanding the financial achievement level it involves. We will work with you to ensure sponsor, exhibitor and delegate invoices and receipts, payment processing and credit control are reconciled monthly and provide a final conference profit and loss account. Our financial controller will manage the budget process and assist in:
- preparing the initial budget and business plan
- develop budgets
- forecasting revenue and expenditure
- identification of revenue streams
- negotiating with key suppliers
- budget review and cash flow forecasts
- provide on-site payment facilities
We will work closely with Exhibitors and Sponsors to ensure event success for both of these stakeholders.
For Exhibitors, we start with pre-planning of the Exhibition Hall and setup of Exhibitor booking procedures. Once an Exhibitor has confirmed their attendance we collect their booking details via a dedicated online booking form. Then we send out an order confirmation form along with terms and conditions of business and an invoice for payment.
We liaise with your exhibitors to collect the details needed for the website and programme. We then send out Exhibitor Timeline and Exhibitor Journey emails which contain all relevant deadlines for the Exhibitors to adhere to. We assist with finalising the floorplan and location for each exhibitor and make sure that each Exhibitor is provided with an Exhibitors Manual. We ensure consistent and effective communication between Exhibitors and Exhibition Supplier Company and Venue – thus on the event day everything runs smoothly.
For Sponsors, we provide a point of contact who will be responsible for liasing with on the on-site suppliers and the event stake holders, to ensure that the terms of your sponsorship deal are met.
“I thought you and your team did a great job in organising a successful event, and from an exhibitor’s point of view everything went smoothly and the various elements that we had requested for the stand set up were all available on time so set up and breakdown was all managed swiftly.” Jon Wild, Keeler Ltd & Volk Optical Inc, Exhibitor
“I can’t praise you guys high enough for the superb organisation from an exhibitors view point. In the lead up to the event your persistence, kept me on track with organisation which meant come exhibition day even I felt organised!” Pedro Polsen, Humanware, Exhibitor
MYT will have direct liaison with the venue and related suppliers negotiating the best rates, including room hire, technical/AV, catering, to ensure value for money.
Venue risk assessment will be undertaken and we work closely with the venue safety officer, the event safety officer and the exhibition, branding and AV suppliers confirming we are fully compliant with the Health and Safety regulations.
Once the planning is completed and executed, the success of the final delivery is down to the production of the final Programme of Events. This document is adhered to by all suppliers and the venue and is directed by the Project Team. The compiled information contains all the event details including contact names, access and set-up times, room layouts, delegate lists, timings, accounting details and a full running schedule. For the AV side we recommend and work with experienced suppliers to understand and deliver your set, staging and live production requirements.
We work with hotel and venues internationally on a daily basis and understand how they work and operate. We would look to work in collaboration with a Local DMC to provide room blocks with release dates for delegates – we would look to organise an online booking system for each hotel in the vicinity of the main event venue where the delegates can book up to a month prior to the event on negotiated rates. Our expertise in managing delegate accommodation bookings will reassure you of a smooth run event.
We can build Online Event Website and Delegate Registration tool. Benefits are that the systems can be integrated and you have only one point of contact for any amendments required plus you will have your own dedicated web co-ordinator within the MYT team.
