PLANNING YOUR AWARDS CEREMONY
Are you Planning Your Awards Ceremony? Awards functions are the perfect event to celebrate and honour those special people that made outstanding contributions to the success of your company this year. It’s a time when you and your guests can gather in an elegant function room, wear your fancy gala evening wear, and show off to those around you.
But, you’d be amazed by all that goes into planning the function!
How much can you spend on the event? This is the first thing to consider, as you don’t want to overdo it. You should probably cover the cost of the awards themselves first, ensuring that they look as elegant and beautiful as their recipients deserve. Once the awards are being made, you can start thinking of the other things your budget will need to cover.
Choosing the location is important. You want a venue that will match the theme of the function you will be holding, so look around to see if you can’t find a function venue that is elegant, decorated with taste, and customizable to your needs.
Here are some of the types of awards you can present:
Framed recognition citations
These are just a few of the best awards to consider, but there are many more. Remember that you want the award to match the gravitas of the event you are conducting. And here are some tips for a succesful awards ceremony.
How many people will be in attendance at the event? Is it an intimate affair with just the friends and family of those being honoured, or is it a public, gala event for all of your employees or your best customers?
You’ll find that your guests will soon get bored and angry if there is no food to divert their attention. You may want to keep the refreshments simple – sticking with hors de ‘oeuvres and canapés rather than going into a full-out meal. It will certainly reduce the risk that anyone will stain the fancy tux or evening gown they have rented for the occasion. Planning Your Awards Ceremony
VENUE SET UP
You’ll need a stage from which the awards will be presented, so make sure that all of the tables in the room are facing the stage for the big event. Make sure there is enough space between the tables and chairs for people to comfortably turn around to watch the event.
Elegance is probably the theme of the evening, but it can be costly to go all out. Consider which of the following are most important for your awards ceremony:
The décor sets the tone for your event, so plan accordingly.
