Dealing with out-of-control attendees.
“So, have you heard the one about the planner who lost control of her group?”
“No, what happened?”
“Apparently she did a really good job of making sure that the final banquet event was, well, lots of fun for the attendees, and things kind of got out of control. I think maybe she’s looking for a new job now!”
While the above might be a slight exaggeration from a manufactured scenario, it’s certainly not out of the realm of reality in today’s world where stress levels are manifesting themselves in all different kinds of situations, both in public and private places. In this era of planners being challenged to always come up with more excitement, more interactive opportunities for attendees, and generally assure that the next event is better than the last, the above situation could easily become a reality when attendees become too disruptive and upset the fine balance between having some fun and really enjoying themselves at the expense of others.
