Celebrate the night: How to create a memorable evening for your corporate event
Hosting a great corporate event is more than just a standard team-building day. Instead, it can be a great tool to increase sales for clients, impress potential clients and boost morale amongst employees. Aside from nurturing relationships and creating connections outside of the office, corporate events can be a great way to reward and incentivise employees for their hard work. These are just some of the many benefits that come with hosting a corporate event.
However, the main challenge with organising a corporate event is creating one that stands will be a standout memory for those in attendance. How does one create a corporate event that engages all those attending, whilst encourages potential clients to conduct business with the hose in the future? Here are just a few ways to create a memorable evening for the next corporate event.
Create talking points
Guests are more likely to engage with one another when given a topic or launchpad. Finding a starting point for a conversation will help guests to interact
Having some form of party entertainment is a guaranteed way to have guests interacting with one another. Businesses such as Alive Network have a diverse range of party entertainment and entertainers available to help create a memorable evening.
From magicians to tribute bands, mobile bars and street performers to living statues and fire performers, there’s a vast range of choice available. Whichever form of entertainment chosen, ensure that it fits in with the theme of the evening, so it does not look out of place.
Make guests feel welcomed
From the second they enter, guests should immediately feel welcomed. The best way to put guests at ease is by providing them with everything that they need. If possible, place it right in front of them for ease. Ensuring that they can get a glass of water or a plate of food without any hassle, the more likely they are to feel as those they are being looked after. This can be easily achieved when organising the event by taking into consideration all of the smallest details.
Name tags, welcome drinks, coat racks or being guided to their seat will all be much appreciated by those in attendance. Sufficient signs available showing the different areas of the venue will also be greatly appreciated by guests.
Make it easy for yourself
Organising an event can be a time-consuming task. By keeping it simple and seeking the support of a party planner to organise the event will be an incredible help. The planner can take the lead on arranging the party entertainment, the schedule, food and drinks available, seating plan and all other tasks that need completing. They will also be the point of contact for all the vendors supplying to the event. This creates one point of contact for the event host, meaning they can focus on other tasks.
When the event does occur, it will run seamlessly and be an unforgettable corporate event that is enjoyed by all those in attendance.
