Pelican Case

Pelican Case

If you have planned an event or hundreds that has happened: someone runs in a panic because they need _______ and think they will because you are the event planner. So is __blank__ you ask for anything and everything and need it now! pins, scissors, glue, a hammer, needle and thread, batteries, or Tylenol – What is and what they are concerned its crisis is far more important than anything that could handle the registration desk or between racks. Well, after a few cases like this I decided make the next "ask" met with an assuring "yes." So I created THE EVENT KIT. It is a kit that has everything that anyone could ask for at the same time in an event. Exhibitors, performers, catering assistants, limo drivers, and volunteers – I am prepared for all 911.

This was the most fun I've had in a long time shopping. I went on a shopping frenzy for Staples, Home Depot, and a few other stores (spent about $ 1,000 in total) and has prepared emergency equipment most amazing event I've seen them all. We're talking about big daddy event kits here. I started with a sentence because I wanted something durable Pelican (also I have a little envious of gear and it was my way of trying to be cool as my photographer and A / V friends). I bought some small organizers to make sense of the small pieces, then the task extremely difficult to make everything fit. Now, when I appear at the event day, I feel armed and ready to help everyone with their mini-emergencies.

Someone asked the other day if I got the idea to see The Wedding Planner (Jennifer Lopez) and I laughed out loud in your face right. I felt bad. No, I did not steal it of a film. I really do not remember any type of brain wave – inspiration not really come into play here. I have seen other kits planners before, but have always been small tool boxes or sewing kits and I just wanted to take over the top.
