Whether you’re planning a small corporate function for under 20 attendees or over 100, here are some easy tips and hints to make your corporate event a huge success.
Identify Goals and Budget: To start, you need to establish what your goals are. Are you trying to raise funds, launch a new product, or educated employees? Once you have a goal, you then can start working on the budget. (How many guests are you expecting? Can you host this event in house or do you need to move it to a venue? Will you be serving a meal or just little snacks? etc.)
Make a Plan and Make a Second Plan: Once you have a venue and all vendors in place, setup a walk through to plan everything from the setup to the breakdown. Once you have a game plan in place, take a second look at it. As we always say, plan for the worst and hope for the best! Go over the load in plan again and make sure you wont have any issues loading tables, chairs, bar, etc. into the space. In case of an emergency, know where the exits are and who you should contact.
Make it Social: We’re social creatures and we like to interact and show our friends what we’re doing. You can create custom hashtags or snapchat filters to get your guests to join in on the fun. Photo booths are also fun and interactive. You can make a back drop for the photo booth that has your logo on it. After your event is over, make share to share photos on your facebook page or blog!
Be Creative: Just because you’re planning a corporate event, doesn’t mean it has to be so corporate. If your goal is to educate your employees, make it a hands on experience.
