Being in the event industry there are a lot of terms I’ve learned along the way. Let me start by telling you an embarrassing story at the beginning of my event planning career. Many years ago, I was working an event and was asked to grab some chargers. So…… obviously (to me at least), I looked all over the venue for different phone chargers to grab. Eventually I came back with my hands full of chargers and, oh boy, you should’ve seen the look on their face! Little did I know a charger was just a decorative plate.
Although some terminologies might be straight forward, others may be left to interpretation. It’s important to know these terms when communicating your event’s needs. Below I have compiled a list of the usual’s to help save you the challenge of pretending you know what is being said and secretly googling the definition later. ;)
Don’t make the same mistake I did. Remember these words and overuse the heck out of them. I don’t know about you, but I’m guilty of learning a new word and using it in about every sentence. No shame in my game! I’d love to hear any funny stories you have had when learning the lingo. Comment below on what you were confused about or a term you don’t understand. I’d love to hear!
