Back-To-School Fun Affair

Back-To-School Fun Affair
The Back-to-school Fair was held on the 20th and 21th of October 2014. It had a carnival theme with a catchy tagline; “A FUN AFFAIR”.

The objective of this fair is to hype up the students for the first week of school and to give them a little treat, which we prefer to call them as Back-to-School gifts, since it is the first day! In this fair, there were many promotions offered to all students, even the staff.

Fun Affair Flyers.

It was a definitely a fun affair for the teams that were involved in the preparation as well as in the execution of this fair. The OICs for this event worked hard to liaise with the vendors, making sure the decorations are of quality and making this event a success.

The Setting Up.

At the same time, we also learnt how to manage our time well and to ensure that the event started and ended at the stipulated timing as well as ensure that the event activities flow well. Team 3 and Team 4 worked hand-in-hand with each other to make this event a fun and memorable one for all, including the vendors that were engaged with us for this event.

The Maku Flyer.

The vendors for this fair consisted of Dispensary, BodyPac, Acecom, LaoBan, Coolgurt,Klarity,Techventis as well as Maku.

Maku and Techventis were held on consignment basis and that got us “busy like a bee”.We had to prepare the price tags, packed the stocks as well as the visual merchandising. We also had to designed posters to be distributed in school so as to create awareness for the vendor.Team 4 worked tediously to beautify and decorate the event according to the theme. With the limited budget that they had , they put their creativity and artistry skills to the test. Team 4 came up with colourful flags of various patterns and designs, blown and tied colourful balloons as well as adroitly designed posters that were simply classy and eye-catching.

We also had DJs and Emcees to help us in hyping up the atmosphere for the fair!

KLARITY Student Workshop

Planning stage

On the last week of September , the overall-in-charge (OIC) of this event Athirah and Stephanie, went to meet the Managing director and the brand executive to discuss the preferred venue  for the workshop to learn about their expectations regarding this event. Thereafter, we replied through emails and phone calls. We had communication breakdown as they were not very prompt in replying the emails. However, we managed to overcome this by continuously calling them to receive updates regarding the event. We also proposed a floor plan and the manpower list for the execution of event.

For the students' workshop, the students were divided into 2 sessions.
|Session 1|  10:30am - 11:30am
|Session 2|  11:50am - 12:50pm

Before the event, Stephanie, Mei Jia and Ming Ming waited for the representatives from KLARITY to call and they went down to get the goodie bags before we could pack them.

Yee Chian, the brand executive went to B.409 to share with the team how the packing or the goodie bags should be done. The goodie bags consist of their lasertox CC cream sample, a brochure as well as a discount coupon for online purchase.

ISATE Registration by EMRS Team 2 & 4

Team 2 and 4 from EMRS was tasked to plan and execute ISATE registration. It was held at Theatre of the Arts (TFA) from Tuesday to Thursday, 23rd September 2014 to 25th September 2014. Our objective of this event is to learn about the process of planning and execution of a registration event.

Initially before the planning, we thought planning a registration was easy but it was the opposite of what we thought.

Pre-event preparation:

The preparation time for this event was more than a week. The first task we did was to decide on the registration booth name. Our team brainstormed and decided to categorise it according to their surname by alphabetical order. Trust us, it was the toughest decision made throughout the event.
Both OIC, Kenneth and Ming Yan, split up their roles as there was a lot of task needed to be done. Kenneth was in-charge in working with the School of Engineering (SEG) to print the name tags for the participants and Ming Yan was in-charge of getting all the logistics and items ready for ISATE.
