After putting on my own event for the past three years I have realized that it takes quite a bit of work just to put on an event. A lot of people go to events and complain about different things without thinking about the people who have gone to all the work to put them on.

This article is about some of the things that happen behind the scenes at the NFR. It’s pretty cool I hope you all like it.

What are some of the things you might not think of when it comes to the production of an event?

  1. In response to the ” Behind the Scenes” I think people often overlook the duration of the event. 2 to 3 hours is as long as most people want to sit in one spot and enjoy a live event. The other thing that is also overlooked is personnel. Assembling a group of people who work well together is important for an event to be successful. No one person is more important than the next. Hire the best people available, Pick up men, timers, announcer, secretary, chute help, flankmen everyone is crucial to a great production. The last thing is everyone involved has to do their best job, it doesn’t matter if 8 people paid to watch or 8,000 they deserve the best. Without their being satisfied there may not be an event in the future.

      Hey Tyson,

      Thanks for the comment on the site! I really appreciate it.

      I agree with you about hiring the right people for the right jobs. Those people are the event. They make it what it is. Without any single one of them doing their job right your going to be in trouble.

      What do you think are some of the other factors in event production? What are some other tips you could give as far as production goes to put on a better event over all?

      Hope to hear from you soon Tyson,
