Organizing an Event

I remember when i was in high school, we used to organize exhibits for our Science fair and other activities and special events. I was elected as the club president back then so i was always in charge with this kind of activity.
I am the one responsible for all the members and i am the one assisting all the visitors who came by to visit the exhibit. It was indeed very stressing yet very rewarding experience at the same time. I really had so much fun organizing a trade exhibits because I am always the first guy who's given an opportunity to see the items to be used for exhibit before anybody else. For those who are not familiar with trade show exhibits, Trade show exhibits are used at a variety of events to present products, ideas, build awareness and more. I love organizing school science trade show exhibit where all students from different grade levels will present their creative invention.
Organizing such event is not that easy because your responsibilities are to protect not just the items but also the visitors. We used to place some crowd control equipment to make it easy for us to organize the event. We used to restrict visitors for touching any items on the event too unless they were allowed by its owner. Preparation for a trade show exhibit is not as easy as what you think because we are carrying a lot of responsibilities. Usually, we rent all the equipments from a rental equipment company like that Rental Equipment Portland in Oregon since we do not have enough fund to buy them. Sometimes, we asked for solicit too to make the event possible for them.
Well, i wish i could turn those times back again. I want to experience organizing an event again hehe. Have a great day guys and happy blogging.
