Why You Need an Event Porter Before, During & After Your Event
Updated: Dec 17, 2020
When you’re staging an event, one of the most important details to remember is to hire an event porter who will work silently behind the scenes to keep your event running smoothly.
Every event deserves a hero, someone who can ensure all your planning, time, and effort delivers the effect you intended. That’s why event porters exist — to make your job easier by ticking off some of the items on your to-do list so you can focus on strategy, execution, and making your guests happy.
What Does an Event Porter Do?
Event porters are the unsung heroes of parties, conferences, weddings, meetings, and other gatherings. Similar to custodians or janitors, porters help to create a clean, safe, clutter-free event space before, during, and after your event, giving your guests plenty of room to enjoy themselves.
Take a look at some of an event porter's most common duties:
Before the Event:
● Setup the event space
● Hang signs, banners, or balloons
● Set up tents and tables
● Load and unload trucks
● Store supplies to be used for the event
During the Event:
● Monitor restrooms
● Restock supplies
● Arrange equipment and furniture as needed
● Run errands for vendors on-site
● Clean up throughout the event (i.e. clearing tables, picking up trash, etc.)
After the Event:
● Take out trash
● Remove lingering elements of the party (i.e. decor, tablecloths, balloons, etc.)
● Clean up the event space
● Stack or store furniture
● Break down displays
