If you need to plan your company retreat, team building, or holiday party, you may feel overwhelmed. The key to a memorable event’s plan is to start with enough time in advance. Then, stick to a tight schedule, so you don’t get bogged down with last-minute details. Below are essential ideas you need to consider for your corporate event.
The Factors That Can Make or Break a Corporate Event
The space you select will set the atmosphere for your event, so it’s critical to choose a site that matches the goal of the gathering. Hold smaller, more relaxed employee appreciation gatherings in a private room at a restaurant. Have a client-facing gala in a conference center or other professional area. Also, pay attention to decor and equipment. Partner with a professional event company for decorations and AV supplies because those can give your event the extra edge it needs.
Unless the party you throw is a brief cocktail affair, you’ll want to provide food for your guests, so they don’t get hungry or irritable. Your choice of venue will factor into this decision—some spaces require that you use their catering service, or may have an additional fee for dining in the space. Consider what type of cuisine will appeal to your attendees, how you will navigate dietary restrictions, and what your budget will accommodate.
No one likes showing up to a corporate gala only to stand around aimlessly chat for hours. To make your attendees feel like their time is well-spent. Have a clear understanding of how the get-together will run. Create a detailed schedule that breaks slots into 20-30 minute blocks. When will the food be served? When will the keynote speaker or CEO be on stage? When will the gala be over? Having a flow mapped out for the affair helps you eliminate potentially quiet moments.
