In Events, Uncategorised by Rose NovotnyLeave a Comment

What do parents look for when looking for events to attend with the family? Generally speaking, events that put emphasis on family fun, open spaces and experiences make for a strong selling point. As a parent, when the kids are bored that can take your full concentration – this can in turn can make it challenging to attend a non-child friendly event with the kids.

No matter how great the music, how wonderful the food or engaging the speaker , if the kids aren’t happy the parents focus will be on that instead on the events objective.

Your event deserves to be enjoyed to the max by all in attendance – that’s exactly when the pro’s come in.

Bang for your Buck!

Budget plays a big role in the planning process, but we believe that events can have an amazing bang whether the budget is large or conservative.

Whats important when planning:

  • What is the events objective
  • Expectation of guests attending with children
  • Space that is available for the kids area
  • Budget

The above information allows us to craft the perfect kids zone ensuring the delivery of a stellar experience for the guests that hits all your requirements and those of families.

Safe & Sound

When planning or hosting a family style event there is an immense amount of responsibility to ensure a great time for the kids, but equally important is to provide a safe environment.

Large events can be a stressful place to go as a family, the feeling that you may loose one of the kids walking through the endless crowds becomes a real concern. That situation is exactly what we plan meticulous to avoid in our kids villages. 

  • Enclosing the entire children’s area to ensures that maximum fun can be had, with minimal amounts of worry for the parents.
  • Armbands are given to each child as they enter the area with parents names and contact numbers to ensure that should the situation arise that a child is separated from their guardian, a reunion is always guaranteed.
  • Each station is monitored by a Bazinga team member which are on call to assist and monitor the children if/when required.

Keep it simple 😉

There are certain things never go out of style – high fives and smiles are a couple of those things.

To us one of the top concerns is that our team is engaging on a fun level with the children – encouraging as much fun as possible with the younger audiences.

What do you remember from a great experience? Might it have been something as simple as a smile from the welcome committee?
