How to Make Your Next Corporate Event One to Remember, Lincoln, Nebraska

When it comes to planning a corporate event, you might be torn between keeping the occasion professional and ensuring everyone has a fun, memorable night. Luckily, there is a way to do both. Use the following guide for inspiration on everything from the event space to the entertainment.

Ways to Balance Fun & Professionalism When Planning a Corporate Event

1. Get Out of the Office

It can be hard for your employees to escape daily stressors if you keep the party at the office. Instead, transport them to a new environment by renting out an elegant event space, such as a lounge or banquet room. With comfortable places to sit and enough space to mingle, you’ll facilitate a sense of camaraderie between coworkers

2. Cater the Food

If you’ve chosen a theme for your event, you can work with the catering company to incorporate it into the dishes. For example, a tropical-themed party could feature cocktails with umbrellas and kabob-style appetizers.

3. Don’t Forget Entertainment

While you can count on your staff to strike up a conversation with one another, give them something to talk about by enlisting entertainment, perhaps in the form of a live musician, comedian, or magician. Plan games or contests that encourage team-building. Or use this opportunity to let individuals show off either their dancing or singing skills by arranging for a dance floor or karaoke machine to be available at the event space.
