Event Management

Is it expensive to use an Event Manager for a corporate event?

Last Updated: October 11, 2023

It’s time to bust a myth… Whilst we can’t speak for other Event Management companies, using us, Salone Events, as your event manager to help plan, coordinate, and successfully execute an event, usually comes at no extra cost to you. So cutting straight to the answer, no, it is not expensive to use an event manager for a corporate event. 

Using our connections and relationships that we have built over many years, we get our payment via a commission structure, and usually end up securing you better rates than if you were to go direct.

As an example, we hosted a large event for a company which ended up saving them close to £32,000, compared to if they had gone direct. 

In our history of running Salone Events, we have only ever had to charge an event management fee once – which was very minimal. 

What events does this payment structure apply to?

There are many different types of events that this applies to. From individuals to businesses, the benefits are applicable for everyone. As an example, below is a brief list of where this applies: 

  • Hospitality bookings at Festival of Speed, Goodwood Revival, or the British Grand Prix
  • Sales Incentive Events
  • Employee or client entertainment 
  • Hotel bookings 
  • Meeting room bookings
  • Conferences

Why would you use an event manager?

There are many reasons to consider using an Event Manager, all of which are equally important. 

By using a professional such as Salone Events, you ensure that your event will be successful, your guests will have the perfect time, and you yourself can enjoy the event as you have us there to manage guests, and problem solve as required. 

If working within a company, you can hand over the workload to someone else, and not have your daily job effected by the planning that goes into running a successful event – something that is usually underestimated. 

It gives you peace of mind knowing that we will be securing you the best possible rates using our contacts and network, utilising our existing relationships with suppliers and venues. 

And with it coming with no additional cost, why wouldn’t you use an Event Manager?
