WHOM to rely on for supplies?
I have used one particular vendor for two events since I returned to Enugu in 2017 and, on each occasion, my guests stood waiting while tents and chairs were being put up. This was after assurances that the venue will be set up the night before! So beware: those who are supplying or leasing out things you need for the event can be unpredictable at times. They need to be monitored constantly to ensure that they deliver as promised. Nigeria has not developed to the point where people sign vendor contracts. Heck, even if we do get to this level at some point in the future, what use will a piece of paper be to guests who are standing up while chairs and tables are being set up, or those who have nothing to eat and drink? The fear of vendors is the beginning of common sense in events planning.
