Grimes Events and Party Tents have been serving the community for years, providing event rentals to create functional designs for clients. With the many events we have serviced, there is a certain level of purpose behind all of them. Big or small, the purpose is present at every event. Even though there is an intention behind every event, the nature behind the intent is what makes the event truly purposeful or not. With the many things going on in the world, we are offered many opportunities as event professionals to make changes with the events we create.
When planning an event with purpose you or the planner is thinking about it from a non-commercial mindset. The value of this event has a bigger effect than anything we can physically see or gain capital on. An event can be private, corporate, or charitable, all can be done purposely if intended. If the event creates change or brings awareness to a challenging area it successfully served a purpose that ultimately serves the community’s greatest good.
There are a few things that can qualify your event as one that embodies purpose. The more important strategy behind creating a purposeful event is the intent behind the function. Why are you having this event? How is it going to have a long-term positive effect on others? These answers can be very simple or more complex but regardless, the pure intention behind the answers ensures the event is yielding a level of purpose. If you want to give back through your event there are so many ways to do this. Some examples are having a reputable speaker, inviting members of your community who sit in high places, as their presence is a resource to uplift the purpose. Lastly, using admission to give proceeds to an establishment in need.
Having a purposeful event also offers some hidden perks besides being overall beneficial to a cause. One of the biggest highlights of a purposeful event is the transformation it brings. If you promote a purpose at your event, you are also creating a space for the public to engage with the topic or purpose. This engagement works as a catalyst to educate and inform your guest about a purpose you find important. Another thing that makes an event with purpose stand out is the feedback you’ll get after the event. Feedback gives your event exposure that continues far after the event is over. This feedback can also manifest itself as new followers, subscribers, sign-ups, or donations. Overall, this is giving your purpose the support it deserves.
When we think of purposeful events, we automatically think of a charitable type of event. Food drives, raising funds for cancer research, helping the homeless, etc. All these events are clearly doing something to give back to a moral cause. Although this is a direct way to create a purposeful event, there are other subtle ways to incorporate purpose in any event.
For example, a wedding. Depending on your theme and time of year for a wedding, the host can incorporate purpose through their personalization. Incorporating information on an important cause in the wedding favor, asking guests to donate to a cause rather than gifts, or ensuring all materials and vendors you’re working with have an ethical and sustainable background, are just some of the ways to bring a deeper purpose to a wedding day.
