Our professional team works tirelessly to create the best experience possible for the special guests, the sponsors, stakeholders and the spectators.
Event management is the coordination of us running and planning of all the people, teams and features that come together to create every kind of event.
Our specialized software is designed to help streamline the complexity of large projects as well as facilitating team collaboration and project reporting. Our management software solutions can also handle resources, employee management, scheduling, task assignment and more.
Our security management comprises the functions that control and protect access to system and network resources. Which include authentication, authorization, and encryption key management. The detection and reporting of network and system attacks, intrusions, and the initiation of protective measures such as port disabling are some of our specialties.
You can’t manage what you can’t track. Experience proves that in the fast paced world of special events, material planning and handling can make or break an event. To keep you ahead of the game, OFC will design a specialized database to help you track every detail of your event—suppliers, inventory, personnel, you name it. We’ll also set up report features that allows you to generate real-time reports with a few clicks.
After identifying your material needs, we’ll locate the best possible sources that works within your budget. We’ll even work with sponsors and vendors in the community to rent or borrow items. Then we’ll tie everything together by updating your customized integrated database to track all inventory from receiving through liquidation. To ensure the safety of your high-dollar value items, our staff will equip them with a theft-deterrent tracking device. When your event ends, we’ll return loaned and rented items and liquidate inventoried items for you by scouting out buyers, public sales, auctions and charitable organizations for donations.
We’ll help you define a baseline for what is needed to run your venues by developing the size and configuration of your warehouse/ main distribution center. Our company will store, organize, track and maintain your inventory such as your FF&E (furniture, fixtures and equipment) back and forth to your venue throughout the event. Then we’ll prepare the warehouse for liquidation. We will provide summary reports of warehouse activities and directly monitor assets.
Did you know that you can get free publicity from the media with a simple press release or phone call? As specialists in that area, we’ll tap into favorable media markets for you with a unique story line and targeted media list designed to get the word out and maximize event attendance.
Need posters and flyers to promote your event? We can create and distribute them to high-traffic areas well in advance of your event to pique interest and excitement. We’ll also have our staff on hand to circulate programs during your event.
