25 Mar Choosing The Right Vendor For Your Hawaii Corporate Event—Part I
So, you’ve decided to make Hawaii the location for your corporate event. Excellent choice! There are few locations on Earth that can provide an island experience like Hawaii. The landscape, culture, food, activities, and weather keep people coming back every year. Businesses of all sorts host their events here annually as well.
During the setup of your event, you’ll likely need to rent items such as tents, chairs, dancefloors, bars, etc. However, which vendor should you choose? Below are a few points you may want to keep in mind.
Reputation, Reputation, Reputation
As you research your vendors, investigate their reputations. Of course, you can look into online reviews. However, when doing so, you should be discerning. Read their reviews to see if they are authentic. Check for details instead of a simple “they were awesome” reviews. As you boil down your list, ask the businesses if you can contact some of their former clients. Speaking with another company or client about whether they would work with a vendor again is very telling.
Standard of Service
While choosing your company in Hawaii, you’ll want everything to run smoothly so that everyone can enjoy themselves as much as possible. Working with a vendor who is willing to fulfill your needs is critical to having a successful event. Ask your vendor questions about setup and accommodations for unexpected events. They should be able to walk you through their protocols and give examples of what they’ve done in the past.
Quality of Rental Items
You’ll need to know the quality of the items you are renting. Furnishings that are flimsy or dirty can hurt the reputation of your business (particularly if you invite VIPs). The vendor should be able to send you images of the items you are renting or give you a pre-rental walkthrough of their items.
