What's your biggest fear when it comes to hosting a company picnic? Not enough activities? Bad food? Surprisingly, there's something much more fundamental that you should keep in mind when planning your next big event... and it's a pretty crappy conversation to have to think about. That’s right - one of the biggest party fouls is leaving the guests without the proper potty tools to keep themselves fresh and picnic ready. A venue can be appealing for a number of reasons and when you find one that fits your event then, book away! However, while the venue might fit your group size and requirements, make sure that the facilities can also meet the needs of your group. And by facilities, we mean restrooms. That’s right restrooms might be the last thing on your mind but when booking a public facility as a venue, and yet it is important to make sure to evaluate all aspects of the sites offerings. How inconvenient would it be if your venue’s restrooms were a far walk for guests? Are the bathrooms the only facilities for a large shared venue? Bathroom breaks are a key part to the comfort of party goers, and ruin an experience for younger or older guests who need to be close to functioning well stocked restrooms.
While it may seem like an odd topic to discuss with your event planner, it is important to have an open dialogue. At Team Play, no question is too odd or out of bounds and it’s appreciated when we know we can assist our clients take extra steps to ensure everyone has a pleasant experience. So, when a recent client asked about supplying extra toilet paper for her venue, the staff took that as an opportunity to go above and beyond. While the question seems silly and giggle worthy, this was obviously a lesson this client had learned previously with her venue and now our team can take note of that issue. Event planning encompasses so many details that so many can be overlooked. Hiring an event professional can take the pressure out of the equation before any bathroom mishaps have to be learned first hand.
