Congrats on your new business!!!
I know, you haven’t started a new business. But if you had, I would hope that you are consulting a professional event planner to coordinate your grand opening. I know what you’re thinking, “Why on Earth do I need an event planner when I’ve been doing everything by myself already??” I’m glad you asked 🙂
Your grand opening, whether for a new business startup or announcing a new location, is the absolute best opportunity you will have for a long time to touch as many potential customers at one time. Don’t waste it. Besides, after working your tail off to move in, set up shop, and get ready to sell, sell, sell, why would you want to be stuck managing refreshments while your customers are wandering around? You should WANT to be right there with them, telling them how great your business is, and why they should take a card, flyer, or pen and file your contact information in their mental rolodex to be used when the need arises. Having an event planner available doing what they do best gives you the freedom to do what you do best.
Here’s to a successful grand opening!
