Make Your Award Night Venues a Smashing Success
Award night venues can be a wonderful way for you to celebrate important people—the suppliers that keep your company stocked with high-quality products, the employees that ensure smooth business operations, even your top customers. Whatever type of awards night venues you’re looking for, here are a few tips that can help you make it a huge success:
Get a presenter – that can present. The last thing you want is to bore people with a dull, monotonous presentation. If your CEO or president isn’t a natural public speaker, hire an MC to do it for you. You want someone with wit, humor, pizazz, and a winning personality to be the one presenting the awards t keep people engaged.
Keep it short – The last thing people want is to sit through hours of awards. They want to celebrate the important things, then get back to enjoying their dinner and the rest of the event. Try to keep the awards ceremony under 40 minutes, and definitely no more than an hour!
Get creative – with the audiovisuals. Give each category their own songs, and use a unique tune to celebrate the winners walking up to receive their awards. Make a fun slideshow or video presentation for each award. The more engaging the audiovisuals, the easier it will be for people to get into the spirit of fun.
Be organized – Make sure you know who is going on and when, and what categories will be presented in what order. You’ll need at least two or three people behind the scenes to bring up the presenters and keep things moving. Make sure to assign people to that role, as well as having one or two people to help the winners off the stage.
Find a good theme – A themed awards ceremony can be a whole lot of fun, and it can be a way to do something different from the classic “gala” event. Think of a theme that ties in with your company’s brand, or choose something that appeals to your target audience.
Get all the right equipment – When searching for a award night venues, make sure the venue has all the sound, lighting, and video equipment required for the ceremony. Do a run-through a day or two ahead of time so you know exactly what’s going to happen, and you and the venue will both have time to pick up any missing or required equipment not on hand.
Find the award night venues – Finding the right award night venues is a MUST! You need a large, flexible space capable of being adapted to your needs. You could go with a classic party hall, but we recommend a warehouse style venue. Not only are they supremely “on trend” at the moment, but you’ll find they’re the most versatile option for your event. You’ll be able to customize the venue however you want, arranging everything according to your theme, the number of guests, and the type of award ceremony.
