How to choose the right hostess agency?
Here are some tips on how to choose the right hostess agency:
- Ask about the experience of the proposed hostess. Working as a hostess does not require any special training. However, it is good to know if you have junior profiles or people with experience (conventions, exhibitions, or advertising).
- Ask for the photo catalogue (SedCards) of the hostess. Most clients do not have time to get to know the profiles before the event. Thus, it is crucial to understand how to choose the company image's montage profiles based on recent and natural photos. Generally, hostess agencies like Diamonds Model Agency can also advise you on the right hostess based on their personality or experience.
- Check the local presence of the hostess agency. It is vital to make sure that they can provide you with a range of resources locally. Make sure they do not use outside hostess agencies or subcontractors. This way, you will avoid disappointments such as paying higher prices or additional transportation costs that were not agreed upon.
- Make sure that the staff gets a contract according to the law (insurance and liability).
- Give a clear briefing about the activity. A hostess who has been trained before the show will undoubtedly be more cooperative and active. Write a short document with a brief presentation of the company and the event you are attending. This document should include hostess duties, dress code, working hours and all organizational details.
