Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):
Why should we
use a reunion manager/planner?
Planning and coordinating a weekend reunion event for a few hundred people, who are now spread all over the U.S., can be very complex and time consuming. Few reunion committee members have the experience, contacts (hotels, DJ's, photographers), resources (staff, phone, alumni search tools), funds (often over a thousand dollars in deposits, postage, printing, long-distance), and/or personal time (often hundreds of hours) to devote to planning an event that so many people expect so much from. A professional reunion manager knows what it takes to organize a successful reunion. A professional reunion manager is well trained and prepared to take care of every detail of your event. You and your reunion committee will make all of the decisions and the reunion manager makes them happen.
Why should we use Blast from the Past Reunions?
The staff at Blast from the Past Reunions has been professionally trained in reunion management and has successfully coordinated numerous reunions since 2000. Blast from the Past Reunions is located in Albuquerque and has established professional relationships with the local facilities and professionals. Through these relationships, we can offer you competitive pricing and ensure high standards of quality. These facilities and professionals will want you to be satisfied to ensure repeat/future business through Blast from the Past Reunions for other class reunions.
How soon should we begin to work with Blast from the Past Reunions?
Preferably, at least 6 months before you would like to have your event. Starting 9-12 months in advance is ideal, since this will allow the reunion committee sufficient time to consider some different options, allow us to secure facilities and professionals (which often book 6-12 months in advance), and it will provide some extra time to search for class alumni. No matter how soon your event is coming, give us a call - depending on how far along you are, we may still be able to offer some assistance.
Will we be able to customize our reunion event and mementos?
Absolutely! Every reunion event is unique. We will work with your reunion committee to custom tailor your event to suit the needs and desires of your class. We will be able to offer you a variety of options and choices that we have learned work well, and will always look for ways to make your event unique and personal.
How much will it cost to have Blast from the Past Reunions coordinate our event?
The cost of the event and our services are covered in the individual ticket prices, which are determined by your class size and the event activities chosen and approved by the reunion committee. The reunion management fee that is added to each ticket price covers labor, materials, supplies, printing, postage, telephone, long-distance, staff, etc.. So, you will not need to pay an up-front fee as part of contracting our services.
