Top Tips For Organising A Great Pop Up Workshop Or Event
Whether your pop-up event is happening for one day or for a longer period of time, having it organised and running as smoothly as possible for the entire duration is essential in making the most of the event.
Pop-up events are a great way to host exclusive or one-of-a-kind workshops and events without the need to locate a permanent space or venue and they can be a great way to create interest or excitement for your company or business.
Whether you're hosting a pop-up workshop for your employees or an event for your customers and clients, these tips and tricks are sure to make it as smooth sailing as possible.
Anticipating bad weather and planning for this, even if the forecast looks clear, is essential. You never know when the rain clouds will appear and being unprepared, uncovered and exposed to the elements in the event of a rainstorm can cut your event short.
Utilising portable shelters and canopies is a great way to make sure that your event can continue, even if the rain decides to attend as well. These are usually really easy to install and set up and give you security and peace of mind.
Ensure you have refreshments. If you are hosting a workshop for employees and the event is likely to go on for a while, having refreshments available is essential. People are more likely to remain energised and interested if they have access to snacks and drinks during the day.
This also creates a more welcoming environment and can give people something to bond over during breaks or quiet times. There’s nothing like a cup of coffee to get the conversation flowing.
If your pop-up event is a shop of some kind, ensure you have backup stock to hand. The worst case scenario is that you run out of products and need to close up shop early. Having extras in your vehicle which are easy to grab and set out is essential.
