As we wind down on our 2013 events, we start thinking about 2014 Festivals and Events.
If water stations are on your radar for next years events or you are considering a change from your current supplier, check out the tips below to get the most out of this service.
1. First thing you should have in mind is when you will require the stations to be in place, set-up is sometimes overlooked. If you want to have everything in place before the start of your event make sure you specify this with your contractor.
2. Find out what the water station supplier needs to provide their service. Most suppliers will need a potable water source and some will need an electrical outlet. Stations should be set up on a level surface with ample space for patrons to line up as well.
3. Will the contractor provide staff or will you be asked to provide volunteers to run the stations? Every contractor is different in this area, so make sure you know what you are getting for the rice you are paying.
4. What is the cost and what does that include? Make sure you get an all inclusive price that includes delivery, set-up and staffing that you think will be adequate for your event.
5. Last but least, make sure you ask as many questions as it takes to be comfortable with this great service. When done right you will have everyone talking about what a great service this was and they probably didn’t miss paying 3 or 4 dollars for a bottle of water.
Good luck in your event planning for next year and will see you at the water station.
