Beware the charlatans, focus on your clients and team
It's old news now that the eventing industry got absolutely smashed by lockdowns. Our business was no exception. After reeling for weeks and dismissing it as 'just a short-term thing', we soon realised this wasn't a blip but a very real, long-term challenge. 23 Jun 2021 Read more

Time for the next step in this virtual journey
Virtual events are no longer the 'new' normal - the time to adapt and shift into the virtual space has come and passed as the world has dealt with Covid-19 and all that it brought with it, delivering us into a time where virtual, or at least hybrid, is now our normal.

The creative dilemma: Pitching in a world that sets you up for failure
The pitching process: a delicate dance between client and agency. It has its steps, its moments of push and pull and, if you're lucky, it ends with a flourish. But both clients and agencies have responsibilities when it comes to pitching and, if these responsibilities aren't taken seriously, projects with the potential for success are instead destined to fail. By mismanaging the process and not having the right people in the right room at the right time, clients step on their partners' toes and run the risk of ruining the entire dance. 23 Aug 2019 Read more

10 things your event planner should know but probably doesn't
What do you expect of a high-quality event planner? Do you expect them to be a clear communicator? Yes, probably. Do you expect them to be able to reverse a delivery truck or manage the audiovisual equipment? No, probably not. There should be other experts for that. When it comes to selecting a professional event planner, knowing what skills and expertise to look out for is a sure way to sift the wheat from the chaff. While the chaff might be able to bartend, the wheat should be able to perform any or all of the following tasks. 2 Aug 2019 Read more

Video production: A game changer in events
There's no doubting it: video isn't going anywhere. As time becomes an ever-scarcer commodity and attention spans continue to decline, video allows for information to be communicated quickly, succinctly and directly to a specific audience.

Worx Group's top tips for working with a difficult venue
When you're a bride searching for the perfect venue to host your big day, there's often a moment of pure joy when, after inevitably trawling every hall, garden, church, country club and farmyard, you finally find 'the one'.

Offsetting your most expensive event must-haves
As event managers, we all have dreams of an endless budget, but in reality, that's seldom (okay, never) the case. So, because it's imperative to us that our clients receive the very best event and the very greatest experience that their money can buy, a huge part of our job is creating that endless-budget-wow factor, but within our financial limits. Luckily, our years in the field means that we're experts at doing just that, and when you know what your most expensive must-haves are, you can build your budget around them. 21 Nov 2018 Read more

How to use social media to promote your event
Social media has gone from being a personal networking tool between close friends and family, to a mandatory tool for all businesses. Today, social media is a must-have for anyone aiming to take their company to the next level of audience engagement, feedback, and exposure while expanding opportunities to make revenue. In the events industry, this matters because we deal with people every day and if socialising is an inherent part of our jobs, then being well versed and up-to-date with the world of social is a must. But, with so many different platforms and ideas out there, where do we even start? 13 Nov 2018 Read more

5 tips to boost networking at your next event
Event planners are challenged now more than ever to #bringbacknetworking and make it great again! If this sounds like a campaign, that's probably because it is. Networking has received a bad rep over the past few years and this could be because its purpose isn't always clear, and guests genuinely do not know how to network effectively, but event experts can change all that. Here are our tips to boost networking at your events. 9 Nov 2018 Read more

Planning a fundraiser: What you need to know
Since we first started our business, we've been lucky enough to be involved with some incredible charitable causes. From golf days to comedy events, live performances to days outside, we've found that special events aren't just the most successful way of fundraising, they can genuinely be the most fun and engaging, too. There are so many ways to raise money for a great cause, but while social media challenges and text campaigns might seem like a step into the modern world, nothing beats the benefits of meeting with your potential donors face to face. 18 Sep 2018 Read more

Understanding event return on investment (ROI)
When it comes to eventing, calculating event return on investment (ROI) can be complicated.

Learning from negative event feedback
Remember, people need (and deserve) to be heard. If it's clear to an attendee that you've heard them and taken their negative event feedback seriously, they're much less likely to kick up a bigger fuss. Unhappy people can be demanding and may require you to adjust the way you normally communicate in order to fit their needs but think of it as experience gained - the more you practice communicating, the better you'll become at it. 27 Aug 2018 Read more

Event budgeting: Making informed budget estimates
When you're deep in the excitement of planning a new event, sometimes the last thing you want to have to think about is the B word... Budget. We get it: Nothing puts a damper on big dreams, big ideas, and big plans quite like a limited budget, but there's no denying that developing a budget (and then sticking to it!) is key to having a successful event. After all, you don't want to book a huge act to perform, only to find that you've blown the budget and now don't have anything left to spend on things like a venue and food - definite Event Must-Haves. 10 Jul 2018 Read more

The biggest event fails to avoid
We've said it before, and we'll say it again: when you're in the event planning business, things go wrong. It's unavoidable - live events carry uncontrollable factors so there's always an element of potential unpredictability, so we've learnt to take these factors in our stride and think on our feet when those unavoidable mishaps do crop up. But, what about the avoidable ones? 6 Jul 2018 Read more

8 tactics to make your event greener
Greener eventing has been one of the major trends we've picked up on in 2018, and we understand its significance: being conscious of your impact on the environment is important and is something close to our hearts. Even though it might not necessarily be your cheapest choice when it comes to budgeting, we think that conscious eventing is imperative and is going to become more and more important into the future. 26 Jun 2018 Read more

The importance of building strong relationships with event suppliers
When you've been in the industry for over 20 years, you learn again and again the importance of building and maintaining good relationships. This doesn't just apply to your clients but extends to your suppliers - especially if you plan to offer a reliable service or product that sets you apart from your competition. So, it's good to have numbers in your little black book that you know and trust to deliver - and make sure you're maintaining these relationships so that they always answer when you call. As event planners (and so, in many situations a 'middleman'), we know that you live and die on the service offering of suppliers, so at Worx Group, our approach has always been to build real partnerships with our trusted suppliers, and we've found that this benefits us in more ways than we can mention. 25 Jun 2018 Read more

Time-saving hacks for event planners
Event planners all over the world could do with a bit more of two things: time and money, and while we've tried to help with the latter here we'll be talking a little bit about the former. As great as having an abundance of time to plan an event would be, in most cases we find that ample lead time and manageable timelines are more best-case scenarios than actual realities. 21 Jun 2018 Read more

Professional MCs - They're worth it
Here's a little insight - you'd probably be surprised by how often we're faced with a situation where somebody who has no experience as a Master of Ceremonies decides that they can pull off the job. And while there have been a few occasions where we've been pleasantly surprised by the hidden presenting talents of our guests, MC-ing in general is far more complex a skill than most people assume. 30 May 2018 Read more

The power of unconventional venues
For the modern-day event planner, unconventional eventing is an undeniable trend in the future. Done with a strategy that aims to produce an experience where guests proactively engage with organisers (either directly or indirectly), the setup in this form of event planning is key in determining whether your guests will be able to engage and experience the event like never before. Gone are the days where guests attended events to merely consume information for long periods of time in a conference hall at a generic hotel - contrary to popular belief, the real eventing magic happens outside the boardroom, and choosing an edgy venue is a big part of making that magic happen... 14 May 2018 Read more

How to define your event goals and objectives
Event planning has become more than just organising get-togethers that people will enjoy. Yes, that's obviously important, but to keep a finger on the pulse in an ever-evolving industry, you need a sound strategy.

Turning event guests into brand ambassadors
In today's event climate, we've already established that the growing experience economy means that there are more events than ever before for guests to attend, and getting them to select yours from the pack is a huge step - but, unfortunately, it's really only half the battle. Everyone can consider their event guests to be fans, but the real strength comes in when you convert those fans into actual brand ambassadors. 2 May 2018 Read more

So, how do you as an event host take control and deliver your 50% as easily as possible? With the perfect event brief. 18 Apr 2018 Read more

What is The Experience Economy?
"Goods and services are no longer enough." Way back in 1999, this sentence was the reading line (following the book's subtitle) that accompanied the original hardbound edition of The Experience Economy, a book written by B. Joseph Pine II and James H. Gilmore, describing what they believed would be the next economy to shape the way that businesses work. Today, nearly twenty years later, the line remains truer than ever before, with Pine and Gilmore's theory standing strong in the modern-day events industry. 20 Feb 2018 Read more

When you're running an event or a roadshow over a few weeks or even months, keeping the energy up is key, but it's not always easy.

Opportunity everywhere: ICC annual meeting
Since we first opened our doors, we've taken on projects of all shapes and sizes. From visually large but technically small conferences to complex, multifaceted gatherings, we're proud of our ability to face each new project with enthusiasm and professionalism, no matter the scale. In the middle of 2015, we were awarded the contract to be at the forefront of organising the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) Banking Commission Annual Meeting in South Africa, proudly hosted by Standard Bank. As with any big project, the scale and the diversity of the project made for interesting and complex challenges, and we're incredibly proud of how our team worked together to make it happen. 6 Oct 2016 Read more

The Worx Group internship programme
There's no denying the importance of internships in business today. Over the past 15 years, internships have been increasingly highlighted as integral in developing not only individual careers and businesses, but also in shaping the economy. By building work forces from the internship up, the number of skilled applicants at entry level has increased, improving quality of work and cutting down basic training time for companies. With interns able to improve their experience levels from the get-go, and companies able to develop talent that understands how their business works, it's a win-win situation - and an opportunity that we're really excited to be involved in. 5 Oct 2016 Read more
