Many venues already work with a list of approved suppliers for their events, and for good reason – there are various benefits that come along with developing these long-standing relationships. For venues that don’t already work closely with approved suppliers, you might be wondering exactly what those benefits are…
Here at Jaspers Event Hire, we work closely with many venues within a 30-mile radius of our warehouse in Luton, so we have put together a quick guide to help suppliers reason with finding a set list of approved suppliers for their event.
Building working relationships are imperative in business, and this is no different when it comes to hiring furniture and equipment for events. With both venue and supplier working closely together, a mutual understanding is developed that plays nicely into working on events with efficiency.
When a level of trust and understanding is achieved, this can also lead to deals struck between venue and supplier that benefit both parties.
Policies and Regulations
In terms of putting on successful and safe events, suppliers and venues both will have policies and regulations that they have to stick to in order to ensure they work to their standards. These will differ for each supplier and each venue, with some common themes, but a long-standing relationship ensures there is a preconceived understanding. This means there is far less likelihood of confusion or miscommunication, helping everything run smoothly.
Style and Planning
Another great benefit of working closely with approved suppliers is that an event can truly flourish under a consistent and close working relationship between venue and supplier. Once the event planners at the venue have a good understanding of the stock and capabilities of the supplier, they can use their individual expertise to be able to utilise this equipment for the best possible experience for the customer.
What’s more, having an understanding of the ‘tools’ available makes it much easier to sell to potential customers, and there is no risk of misunderstanding – reducing, or even eradicating, the amount of unhappy customers for venues.
Positive for Venue and Supplier
In essence, working closely with an approved list of suppliers is all positive, providing you choose the right suppliers for your venue and clientele. There is a lot to be said for loyalty as it can help improve the efficiency, effectiveness, and efficacy of your venue’s events.
