During this meeting our team will ask many questions pertaining to the planner's vision for the event to help give us an idea of what the client's goals are.
Usually this incudes questions such as, "What type of entertainment are you looking for, a DJ or Band?", "Is there a theme for the event?", "Where is the event being held?", and other similar questions.
