CMT Agency Event Staffing

Are you looking for staff for your next event? If so, you are looking at event staffing agencies. These agencies are the ones to help you find the right people at the right times, for the right reasons. Choosing the right agency will make a difference in the quality of your event and the results you achieve.
When looking for an agency, there are certain things you want to look for. Here are five of the most relevant aspects of event staffing agencies:

  • Handles a wide assortment of talent – What kind of talent do you want to hire? Event staffing agencies have many options available. Maybe you want promotional models to staff a live event. Maybe you need some help from trade booth models. Do you need street marketing? Try a guerrilla marketing team. Do you need live entertainment? Many agencies have everything from comedians to musicians and more. Some agencies can also connect you with experts in audio/visual, lighting, and event planning, if you need it.
  • Has the expertise to help companies of all sizes plan events – How big is your event? You may be opening your first store and need three or four models. Maybe you are opening your 100th store and want two dozen people to help with many aspects of the event. The agency can handle your needs and even help you plan the event from start to finish. That is the calibre of an agency you want working as your partner.
  • Handle multiple events in many locations – If you want to do a multi-city kick-off for a new product, you need an agency that can coordinate your talent needs. Let’s say you want five events in five cities around the United States. You need an agency with a presence in those markets. You do not want to deal with multiple agencies in different cities. A single agency will give you a marketing kick-off with a cohesive message and a cohesive look.
  • Knows how to increase ROI – A good agency is more than just a place to get event staff. An agency who knows their business will want to help you meet your marketing goals. They can help you identify the exact talent you need and get you the right people. With the right staff at your event, you will see more leads and customers than you might have otherwise. Plus, you will get a solid boost in your marketing efforts. All of that will give you a higher return on investment (ROI).
  • Works with a large pool of talent – Not only do you need an agency that has a wide assortment of talent, you need an agency with a large pool of talent. That means an agency with hundreds or thousands of people available. When you are trying to put together an event during a busy season, like spring break or summer, you need an agency that has enough talent for multiple clients at one time. Plus, with more choices you can get the look that you want for your event.
