Where to begin when planning a corporate event

A corporate event has the power to change customer perceptions, generate PR and content, support marketing activities, motivate employees, and the list goes on. Whether you are rubbing shoulders, learning, presenting, launching or socialising, you can’t just throw an event and hope for the best.

You need an idea, a plan and some follow through. This can be done internally by you and your marketing team, or if you’d prefer to alleviate the stress, you could enlist the services of corporate events companies.

GETTING STARTED

However you decide to approach your next event, you need to start with an idea or theme. It’s got to suit your company, your guests and the overall purpose; it also doesn’t hurt to apply some creativity to help get people excited. Sounds easy? Now imagine trying to fit it in with your busy work and home life.

Below are a few ideas to help get you started, so you can focus on doing your job.

IDEAS ON THE TABLE

Think outside four walls

When it comes to outdoor functions, there’s no shortage of ideas. From office beach days complete with fun tropical cocktails to picnics that include baskets filled with grazing options. You could arrange a golf tournament where each department competes for prizes and trophies. You could also tailor this to a charity event that focusses on raising funds.

Stay traditional

A business lunch, a product launch, a corporate dinner – all go great with delicious food. Book a beautiful space, or bring people to your office or store, organise elegant catering and you’re sorted. Inject some excitement with live entertainment or a professional MC.

End of Year Parties

This is usually the one event that all employees look forward to. Depending on your company and budget, you can really go all out. Some grander ideas involve booking a sunset cruise, a wine tour, organising an escape room or a treasure hunt. Add some fun cocktails and delectable finger foods to the mix, and you’ve got yourself a winner.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of options for the next corporate event your company hosts, but we hope that it’s at least gotten the cogs turning in your head.
