Celebrate Communication Preparations

This is always an exciting time of year for me. Now the preparations start in earnest.

Tuesday, March 29

Finally got my Celebrate Communication 2011 book all put together.  The work on that spilled over into today.  Excel spreadsheet is started noting everyone who needs a Tablecloth or electric outlet, internet etc.  Lunch orders need to be entered and exhibitor names for the name tags that come later.  Emails are going back and forth with information, lunch changes and exhibitor paragraphs.

More to come . . .

Monday, March 28

This is always an exciting time of year for me.  By April all our exhibitors have been sent their packets and they are starting to come back.  Now the preparations start in earnest.

  • Place order for Tables and tablecloths - check
  • Contact Face Painter and Mother Goose for the kids - check
  • Arrange for Water, Coffee and Soda donations - check

Time to set up our Master Book where we put all the Exhibitor and Sponsor forms and keep track of everyone's needs, lunch orders, payments and Names of Exhibitors.  That's how I'll spend the rest of my afternoon - on logistics.
