Many clients have asked us (during an agency screening process) how it is possible for one agency to staff a mobile tour with multiple cities. The answer to that is quite simple. Experience.
Over the last 9 years, we have established trust worthy and reliable, top notch event staff in a vast number of cities throughout the US by spending countless hours, tirelessly recruiting and interviewing local staff members and only then inviting them to work with us. As a result of this process, we have built a rock solid database of exceptional event staff, hiring only the absolute best in every area.
Recruiting experienced and knowledgeable staff is a very time consuming process, this is the majority of the reason that most agencies just post ads on Craigslist or the likes. It takes many years of perseverance for an agency to have a valuable pool of event staff with which they work with. To be quite honest, if you haven’t staffed a few events in a particular city in the past (i.e. experience) then you really have no reason to have recruited staff in that area in the first place. The bottom line is this: Experience is pretty much everything in event staffing. If you’re working with an event staffing agency now, inquire about their specific experience in each city of your mobile tour. The future of your project could rely on it.
