An Eventful Event: Tips for Corporate Event Planning

Planning a huge corporate event isn’t as easy as it may seem. It’s not just about inviting the right people; it’s also about planning the right activities. As one of the leading corporate event planning companies in the Bay Area since 1987, we’re here to let you in on some of our secrets:

Here are some tips for organizing a successful corporate event:

PartyUnderstand the end goal of your event

Every company has a specific goal for their event—it’s not all fun and games and it’s not just about a fun night out. Whether they admit it or not, there’s an underlying goal they want to achieve with every corporate event.

Event organizers have to figure out exactly what they’re looking for in a corporate event. Is this event a way to inform and make employees more aware of certain organizational goals? Is it being held to motivate them? Is it being held to celebrate the milestones achieved? Knowing this tiny detail will set the tone for the entire event in terms of budget, location, catering, entertainment, and much more.

Make it a fun evening

While many corporations today are still known for boring corporate events, many are trying to make them fun for everyone. Making employees look forward to the event is the key to successful attendance. This can be made possible by having a relevant theme, making the night engaging and interactive with others, music, entertainment, good food, wine, and the works.

Pay close attention to all these details when planning and executing the event. It should look and feel like there was effort put into every aspect of the night and not like a this-was-all-we-could-afford event.

Bring new ideas to the table

Every corporate event held should be different from what was done in the past. If a company has had a history of having a boring dinner with lots of speeches, try to break from the pattern this year. Float around ideas to your team that you’d like to incorporate and ask them for their suggestions. This way, you’ll be able to get a better feel for what your employees are looking forward to.
