What type of hospitality staff do I need for my corporate event?

When it comes to events, presentation is everything. The quality of your hospitality staff will directly impact the quality of your event and the reputation of your company. Depending on how well you choose your staff, this can be a very positive or a very negative impact!

Who do I need?

The first step is to work out exactly who you will need to support the event because leaving roles unfilled is a recipe for organisational disaster. 

Most events require front of house staff for meet and greet and waiting staff to serve cocktails and canapes, a sit down meal or all of the above.  You may also need cloakroom staff, promotional staff for a sales-based event such as a trade show and promotional models for effective lead generation if you’re launching a brand or product range. 

If your event is a corporate one, we recommend specialist staff to take care of all the prestigious guests who have made the effort to attend. This might be corporate hostesses in hospitality boxes, VIP lift assistants or models and hostesses for private dinners and parties.

For conference events, you will require specialist staff to cover duties such as passing round the microphone during Q and As, manning the information desk and assisting with literature distribution. 

 Every event is unique, but this is a good overall picture of what type of staff you may need at yours.

Why is good hospitality so important?

Every point of contact that your guest has with your event is an opportunity to promote your brand and services in the best possible light, which is why it’s essential to pick qualified staff who are also highly presentable and personable. 

Our friendly and experienced hospitality teams have worked at some of the highest calibre events including exhibitions, private parties and awards ceremonies held at prestigious locations including Wembley Stadium, Royal Ascot and London Excel. We have also assigned staff to work on smaller, more intimate and boutique events. 

Every job is undertaken with a strict commitment to your needs and desires – our team love their work and are fully dedicated to making sure that your event is a success and the guests have a great experience from start to finish. From the moment that your guests arrive at your event, they will enjoy a warm, welcoming atmosphere where every member of staff adds something extra special without being overbearing. 

Our team at Event Hosts offer a fantastic range of staff to suit your exact requirements, however niche. We pride ourselves on offering the highest calibre of staff at an affordable cost. If you’d like us to take care of your staffing needs and join our ever-growing list of happy customers, contact us today.

Event Hosts have been working with HSBC for the last three years, most notably with their annual Diwali client event at the prestigious Hilton Hotel in Park Lane, London. The event requires our high-calibre VIP hostesses to meet and greet guests and provide first-class service throughout the event. 

And we’ve received some great feedback for the event too: 

“What can I say?! It is always such a bliss working with you and the team. The outfits were perfect, and as always, the hostesses add a unique charm and style to the event! Please thank each and every one of the hostesses; they were just brilliant! Without a doubt, I will be in touch for the next event. Keep up the fantastic service, charisma and unique offering.”

Some of the Melitta events we’ve helped with have included; creating a pop-up coffee shop at Old Street Underground Station and the Pub in the Park at Marlow and Tunbridge Wells. Event Hosts have also teamed up with Melitta at pop-up cinema events across London. 

Harrods and Wital Tea:

Working alongside Wital Tea and Harrods, our highly trained retail staff have been promoting and selling Wital Tea as well as providing delicious samples for shoppers in Harrods to enjoy. 

This long-term project means that our brand ambassadors will be greeting shoppers every Saturday at Harrods in Knightsbridge from June to November 2019. The team will be on-hand to improve brand awareness by offering samples of popular Wital Tea flavours.

promotional staffing at Ice Gaming event 2017

Why you need to use a Promotional Staffing Agency in 2017 …

There’s no denying it modern technology has allowed many businesses to flourish more quickly than they could have without it, but this doesn’t mean that traditional tried-and-tested methods aren’t still relevant in today’s business arena.

Putting your business directly in front of a relevant audience is still a proven way of getting relevant exposure and building your brand in a positive light.

promotional staffing from Event Hosts

Promotional staffing – a case in point.

Hundreds of businesses from a wide variety of different niches promote their services/products to the general public at events across the UK and abroad and still see this as a key area in their yearly marketing calendar.

However, for your business to truly succeed in this arena, it is crucial that you ensure your promotional staffing is both professional and knowledgeable and sourced from a reputable and proven agency.  

Although there are many promotional staffing companies available, not all of them offer true value in the service and staff they provide.

Many of these agencies talk a good job but lack the industry experience and know-how to back it up with the quality of staff they provide.

At Event Hosts we saw a genuine gap in the market for a truly tailored and professional premium event staffing agency that takes the stress out of finding the right people to promote your event, leaving you to focus on the finer details.

And since we formed we have built a strong reputation in the event staffing industry for the quality of our staff and excellence in customer service.

And so far 2017 is proving to be the busiest year yet for our promotional staffing activities …

The Furniture Show in January was the first outing in 2017 for Event Hosts, and saw us providing clients existing and new with a series of promotional staff, including sales assistants and hostesses.

Then the Lamma Show is an annual event catering for the farm services industry, and unveils a number of new inventive products to the industry every year. Again, Event Hosts were proud to be part of the event by supplying a number of reliable and professional event staff to help a variety of businesses connect with their customers in an effective and direct manner.

And we pride ourselves on the diverse range of events and clients in our yearly portfolio.

The notorious ICE Total Gaming event, was a great success for us this year and we even secured bookings for the event being held in 2018.

The London fashion show Pure saw us flourish again, with a series of existing and new clients taking full advantage of our promotional staffing services,  including a number of promotional models demonstrating the latest fashions.

And not forgetting The Spring Fair where, once again, a number of clients benefited from the quality and reliability of our promotional staff.

If you’re currently considering using promotional staffing at your next event, then why not contact Event Hosts today to discuss your requirements in more detail.
