Frequently Asked Questions

  • 1. What are your areas of expertise?

We work from start to finish on both corporate and personal events. These range from product launches, conferences and company award evenings to celebratory birthday, weddings and anniversary events. We’ve worked across all business sectors and are happy to provide references and testimonials.
  • 2. What are your fees?
    No event is the same, every event has a different requirement and our services fees charged will depend on the scale and nature of the event, complexity of planning and our level of involvement. We will be discussing all the details with you and accordingly quote you for our time and creativity along with the other components wherever applicable. The ideal way to plan would be to work around a budget that you have set aside for your event.
  • 3. Why do I need an event planning?
    An experienced event planner saves you time and money. It might seem trivial at first, but trust us, there are so many unexpected situations that could require your attention and on the day of your event, you do not want to be seen running around trying to deal with last minute situations.

  • 4. What’s the difference between event design and event planning?
    Event design and event planning work hand in hand to deliver a successful event. Event design is about bringing your event to life with appropriate colors, themes, seating, etc., We take pride when it comes to creating stories and experiences that last a lifetime. We would get to know you and understand what you are all about. We love to create stories and design the event in a manner which is never seen before. Event planning on the other side is coordinating the logistic elements and budget management and making sure the event gets executed. At The Big Night, we would first design the event, then plan and manage the event on the day.
  • 5. What factors do you consider when selecting a venue?
    We consider the size and capacity of the venue needed for the number of guests, facilities provided, parking, technical needs and budget constraints. We visit venues to check on the quality of the facilities and liaise with clients, keeping them informed of decisions made. Most importantly, we do our best to choose unique spaces. After all a unique space would make the event unique.
  • 6. How early do we need to start planning an event?
    Whilst this obviously depends on the size and nature of the event, we’d always advise you to start putting plans in place as early as possible. At certain times of year certain venues may need to be booked well in advance, as too with reputable suppliers and vendors. We advise handing over the reins to an event planner as soon as you’re aware of an event to be planned. This gives us adequate time to factor in back up plans as well as leaving ample time to negotiate, plan and ensure everything’s in place for your big night.
  • 7. Can you cope with last minute changes of plan or emergency situations?
    We have extensive experience in dealing with the unexpected. We build in contingency measures for all our events and are constantly formulating plans to cope with emergency situations. Rest assured your event is always in the most capable hands.
  • 8. With the current global situation due to Covid-19, how do you plan and manage your events and what would be the refund policy?
    First of all, our team members are all vaccinated. We keep safety above everything else and it us our utmost priority. We operate under the strict guidelines that have been provided to us by the UAE authorities. As the rules are constantly updating, we incorporate those while we are planning each event. For any reason, the event cannot proceed due to government or travel restrictions, we would do our best to make sure the necessary refunds, wherever applicable, are refunded back to you. Our service fees would be charged based on the time we have spent on the event thus far. We do our best to be as accommodating as possible as we know and understand the current situation.
