It’s Not Too Late, Baby
The ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus is quoted as saying “change is the only constant in life.” As an event producer, you know how true this is. From last-minute presenter cancellations to whole venue reconfigurations, making a change at the last minute is sure to keep you and your staff up late.
You waste money on printing because the old programs are now good for nothing but recycling, and the new programs are going to have to be printed at a premium price for rushed production, whether at the original printer or a local quick print. That is, if you can actually get them reprinted in time. Your regular printer most likely will not be able to slip you into their schedule in a timely fashion, and the local quick-print may not have the capacity or stock to print the number of revised programs you need in the time you have left.
Reconfiguring the maps also requires them to be redrawn properly before they can be sent to the printers. Of course, once the maps are printed you are most likely going to have to have a team slip-sheet them into your programs by hand, increasing your costs on the production side, and your attendees’ frustration when the maps fall out of the program, as they so often do.
The cost of these last-minute solutions is not only measured in dollars spent, but in time spent, anxiety, and the increase of lost and frustrated attendees.
There has to be a better way.
