Events that work hard

“It always seems impossible until it’s done” – Nelson Mandela

A good event prepared well can produce a valuable harvest for any organisation.  With careful planning the rewards will be plentiful.  Whether it’s launching a service or campaign, raising awareness or changing attitudes that’s your primary goal, one event can work on multiple levels.  It’s a question of making the most of the opportunity.

Food display
A feast from around the world drew residents together in a public consultation

Our brief to consult residents on urban regeneration in Great Yarmouth and encourage integration on a shoestring budget was a fabulous challenge.  Harnessing the skills of the community itself, we brought dancers, food from around the world, flags from all nations and children’s activities together in a vibrant event that ticked all the boxes and more.  All ages were on their feet dancing, feasting and filling in surveys – and the community was integrating in what some Afro-Portuguese people described as “the first of such an occasion”.

international consultation
A festival of international food with Afro-Portuguese dancers created a great environment for a public consultation in Great Yarmouth.  Not only did it allow us to survey the community, it also encouraged integration and identified people with aspirations to start-up small enterprises.

An event needn’t cost the earth.  At Get It we believe in making your money go a long way and make it work to boost your profile, meet objectives and engage your audience in as many ways as possible.  There’s no point in going fishing and only catching one fish when you’ve 5,000 to feed!  We will net you as many benefits from your event as we possibly can.
