I’m a freelance event manager, working for a tradeshow. Even though it’s been scheduled for the last year and I’ve been prodding them this whole time, SOMEHOW my clients only managed to get me names for badges THREE DAYS before the event.
They also gave me their list of sponsors three days before the event, and the finalized agenda on the day of the event.
I’ve been working non-stop to get this all done. Even worse, they’re in a different state; we are literally flying documents over in a plane to make it in time.
Somehow, I just know something else is going to pop up and it’ll be “my fault” because I couldn’t “edit fast enough.”
