Corporate events are held usually to celebrate Company milestones, recognize employees’ performance, and launch a new product.
This type of event needs to be fun and at the same time organized professionally because the people involved aren’t just employees but business partners, clients and potential clients as well. By saying “Fun”, means it has to be memorable. You don’t want to fund a big event that won’t be memorable or be seen as a failure.
Here are some tips to having a successful corporate event:
- Plan it out ahead of time
Know your goals and delegate. When you plan ahead, it gives you time to think of what’s missing or what more you can do.
- Forecast your budget
Don’t overspend because of not budgeting! Be realistic on the cost needed for the event to avoid future issues. List down all the things you need to help you achieve proper budget.
- Look for a venue
Keep in mind that the venue should accommodate all the attendees. If possible, visit the place personally and take a picture. I swear it will help you.
- Make a unique program that they will reminisce
Get a keynote speaker that is motivational, inspirational and where one can learn but don’t make the session very long. Say for example the event has general sessions, you can engage the attendees in an ice breaker. Corporate entertainment is also a good strategy in making your goals happen. Why not book a photobooth? In today’s generation, who doesn’t want a picture of him/herself solo or together with their friends that they can keep? It’s just so perfect.
Following the traditional event organizing is good but going the extra mile is the still the best. These are just tips, but it will always depend on how you execute it.
