Contacting a Production Agency

When planning a food and wine event, it’s crucial to work with a production agency to ensure a seamless event experience. You should ideally contact a production agency six months before your event to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Working with a production agency early on will give them enough time to understand your vision, plan accordingly, and ensure that your event is a success.

Production Time for Collateral

When it comes to producing collateral for your food and wine event, it’s essential to give yourself enough time. The amount of time required for producing collateral can vary depending on the complexity of the designs and the type of materials used. Generally, it takes around two to four weeks to produce collateral for a food and wine event. However, this can vary depending on the quantity, quality, and type of collateral required. It’s important to keep in mind that you should give yourself enough time to review and approve designs before going to print.


Items Not to Forget

When organizing a food and wine event, there are several items that you should not forget. These items can help elevate your event and ensure a seamless experience for your guests. Here are some essential items to include in your event planning:
  • Presentation Cards / Menus / Recipes: are essential components of a food and wine event. They provide guests with information about the dishes and wines being served, including the name, ingredients, and pairing recommendations.
  • Leaflets/Pamphlets/Other Printed Collateral/Site Maps / Directional Signage: Printed collateral can provide guests with more information about your event, sponsors, and partners. They also serve as a great takeaway for guests to remember your event.
Branded decor helps to reinforce your brand identity and creates a cohesive event experience. This can include tablecloths, banners, and branded backdrops. Branded utensils such as wine glasses and serving plates help to elevate the guest experience and create a sense of luxury. Giveaways are a great way to leave a lasting impression on your guests. They can be branded items such as tote bags or branded wine openers.

In conclusion, organizing a food and wine event requires proper planning and production to ensure its success. Working with a production agency, contacting them in advance, is an essential step to ensure that everything runs smoothly. Collateral production can take time and planning, and you should give yourself enough time to review and approve designs before printing.
