Destination management isn’t necessarily the most well known industry out there, but the niche market that these company’s do occupy is much bigger than you might first assume. The crux of a destination management company is expertise that falls outside of your own sphere of knowledge in regards to local arrangements that aren’t necessarily close to home. To elaborate, this means that a destination management company will be able to provide you with vetted and tested local contacts, as well as many more services, just about anywhere. In fact, if you have ever tried to plan a corporate event then you have probably felt the pain and stress such organisation can cause. There are a great many options open to organisers all throughout the continent, so if you are trying to plan an event, then there are some invaluable services to be gained should you decide to find an Australian destination management company to help you.
It probably seems obvious, but a destination management company will be exceedingly useful in the selection and booking of a venue for your event. This can also include the schedule for the day as well as liaising with the staff at both a management and ground level and even arranging any decorations that you may desire. Basically they can handle the venue and everything associated with it.
A destination management company can also handle all of the other suppliers that might be required for your event, not just the venue. This might include caterers, entertainment, florists, furniture hire, pretty much anything and everything that you might need for your event can be channelled through your destination management company and they will make it happen.
Along with the booking of venues and suppliers comes the need to pay them, and rather than having money being paid out through various methods at various times, the destination management company can handle all of accounting for you. This means that you are provided with a centralised service to handle your events finances, which can total a large number of different organisations, and you simply need to make payments to one place. This simplifies the process for you massively and provides some consistency for anyone being booked.
Having the idea for an event is one thing, finding the people and companies that you wish to book is another, but pulling all of the threads together to produce a cohesive experience on the day is something all of its own. Having a centralised body, such as Funktionality for example, handling all of the planning for your event will mean that you don’t have to worry about the how, simply the what. It is perfectly possible for the guests list to be handled by your destination management company, along with a schedule of the day and any transport requirements outside as well as inside the event venue. Essentially, hiring a destination management company is a lot like hiring the best personal assistant you’ve never had.
