Working on your Budget

Planning and managing your gala dinner can be stressful. From developing the idea and designing it, through to delivery and completion, you don’t want anything to go wrong at any point. To prevent any unforeseen circumstances hampering your plans, document those important details step-by-step.
However, why be the manager, accountant, supervisor and decorator of the event, when you can get an experienced company to handle all that?

At McCullough Moore, we specialise in the management of gala dinners from concept to completion. Do you need supplies to ensure that your guests are comfortable? Are you looking for a catchy theme to better reflect the concept? We can help make those plans come to light. We also help you choose the perfect venue, entertainment and decoration that resonates the theme of the event and makes everywhere colorful, in accordance with your budget.

Planning for Your Guests

Instead of repeating the same concept or scenery used in previous years, let’s change the atmosphere and make it more unique, so that you don’t have to worry what your guests might think. If you’re looking at making great invitation cards or even using digital means to reach out to the guests, we at McCullough Moore can take care of that for you.

Be it a gala dinner or corporate gala that you might have in mind, we will help source the perfect venue to fit the plan. Our choice will definitely align with yours, because we seek to create the perfect ambience for your gala night.

There’s no need to keep tabs on every worker and equipment used for setting up the event, because we can take care of every detail for you. If you need specific colours or patterns, be assured that we will deliver exactly what is expected.

Do you have a guest list? Provide us with names and we will send all invites and duly allocate a parking space for each of them. If they have specific dietary requirements, our team of professional caterers will provide the ideal dish for each and every one of them, to make sure they are satisfied.

Fun and entertainment

When a gala night is filled with energetic and captivating entertainment, the spirits of your guests will be lifted. They will not only dance and groove to the live music, but also the latest songs from around the world. At McCullough Moore, we provide the best of comedians, actors, circus, stage plays, Djs and MCs of your choice, to add life to the event.

To add more spice to the night, we can suggest the perfect dress codes and colours for the dinner. This also adds class and panache to the event. If you’re even worried about how to create a good first impression, our experts can go through some major table and gala dinner etiquettes with you.

There are a lot of props and other valuables you might want to place inside the venue as centrepieces. We can help provide the right items and keep them at reasonable heights. You won’t want your guests standing up before they can view the stage or the person at the other end of the table.

Audios and visuals play one of the most important roles in a gala dinner. A good sound system projects every word from the microphone, as well as music to keep guests entertained. We at McCullough Moore will go that extra mile to set up the latest models of sound equipment at your event; from projectors to speakers and lighting, to make every moment memorable.

Guests from the other half of the room need not strain their eyes to see what’s happening in front, as a gigantic screen will display every length, breadth and depth of the centre stage, to ensure they don’t miss a thing.

Further Management

If you’re organising the event by yourself, the cost of insurance will also be taken into consideration, especially if they were rented from third-party suppliers. But with McCullough Moore, you won’t have to worry about any insurance cover, because we will take care of that.

Gala dinners are meant to engage the guests, reward or celebrate them. This means that the evening will feature a variety of presentations, meals and displays to make it all worthwhile. From service awards and entertainment to keynote address by speakers and other additional formalities, your guests will have the time of their lives if you utilise your budget wisely.

McCullough Moore can work with your budget and provide a memorable gala night. We will take care of all logistics and management of the event to make sure you go home happier than when you came. From venue, production management, lighting and themes, to catering, entertainment and the overall gala dinner management, we ensure you get ultimate satisfaction and comfort at the end of the day.

I found the personal contact with the organisers very good too. As for the food products, as judges we saw and tasted them at their best.
