Nothing says more about
who you are and what you
stand for than the way you
organise an event.
Our mission with this second edition is to
provide you with an invaluable reference
guide for organising your next private or
corporate function anywhere in Western Australia.
In doing so, we have collated a fantastic range
of event ideas, top caterers and event coordinators,
music and entertainment options and, of course,
a choice of more than 100 leading venues right
across the state.
And it's important! Whether it's for friends or
family, staff, clients or associates, nothing says more
about who you are and what you stand for than the
way you organise an event.
With every invitation, you are asking for people's
most valuable commodity, their time, and it is your
responsibility to ensure guests come away from
your event feeling that it was time well spent.
And there is plenty of room for error.

a glass in the hand early are all essential to
But too often the missing ingredient is the host
not having a firm understanding of why they are
having the event in the first place and not giving
their guests a good reason for being there.
People like to think their time is valuable,
so from the invitation to the speeches and
execution of the event, tell them why they are
there: to celebrate their friendship, to show
appreciation for their business, to announce
something exciting and how it will impact on
the community... whatever it is, give your event
meaning. It will be appreciated.
So from all of us at Scoop, we wish you all the
best in 2010 and hope that this guide is of some
assistance in making your next event a great
success for you and your guests.
