TIPS TO KEEP IN MIND WHEN PLANNING CORPORATE EVENTS
Tips to Keep in Mind When Planning Corporate Events in the near future? If so, here are some tips to help you make your event a huge success:
PLAN WELL IN ADVANCE
At least six months if not more. It gives you time to iron out the kinks in your plan.
SET A BUDGET FOR THE EVENT
You can spend a small fortune if you’re not very clear how much you have available for the corporate event.
HAVE AN OBJECTIVE
You are hosting this event for a purpose, so keep that objective firmly in mind as you plan the activities.
If your budget is a bit tight for the corporate event, consider working with a partner or another company to sponsor the affair.
HAVE A TEAM IN CHARGE
Don’t just have one person in charge of the corporate event planning, but set a whole team on the task. It will make the job much easier to spread it out on a number of shoulders. Tips to Keep in Mind When Planning Corporate Events
Activities, AND catering. You can’t forget to include food and drink in your corporate event budget, particularly if it’s a seminar or conference. Meal times and coffee breaks help to add some life into a potentially dull event.
GO ON THE HUNT FOR A VENUE FIRST
Once you have the venue that will fit your needs, you can plan the various activities and meetings that will take place.
TALK TO YOUR CLIENTS TO FIND VENDORS
You may not know of a good catering company, entertainment company, or photographer/videographer for the event, but your clients and partners may. Talk to them to see if they can recommend a good one.
HAVE A GUEST BOOK
Make sure that all of your attendees sign in as they enter, and you’ll be able to keep track of who’s attending. It will make it easier to organize the next event.
MAKE CLEAR SIGNS
Finding smaller events at a huge venue can be tough, so hang signs around the convention centre or hotel to ensure that your guests know where to go.
ALLOCATE SOME ONE TO BE IN CHARGE OF THE EVENT
Not only does your team need to plan the event itself, but they need to stay on top of everything while it’s in full swing. Problems always arise DURING the event, so there will need to be a coordinator in charge of making sure things continue with no issues.
PREPARE A RUN SHEET
As long as people know what to expect from the corporate event, it will help them to make it through long, potentially boring meetings and conferences. Print up an itinerary and hand out copies to each of your guests.
