Panoptic generally charge 15% on top of all pre-contracted work. This is accommodation, transportation, entertainment, F&B and anything else required to run the event.
Other costs include Office Day Rates – pre-determined in the proposal stage – plus onsite event management costs. These people costs are separate.

How We Create Your Proposal

We will talk over all of this in our initial meetings and will go over everything you will need to make your event a success. At the proposal stage, we will give you the current rates for all of the suppliers including the venues, accommodation and entertainment. We also use a live events budget sheet to ensure all costs are presented in advance, and we all stay within your budget. Anything to be added will be agreed in writing in advance.

Generally, we find most costs are covered in the proposal stage. We do all of this to ensure we can bring together the best event possible for you while still maintaining your complete peace of mind.
