Who doesn’t want an awards night to be a fun, memorable occasion? It doesn’t matter if you’re presenting school awards, sports trophies, or commemorations for your top clients, an awards night can be a great way for people to celebrate achievements.
Here are some tips to help you make your awards night the “happening” thing:
Get Inspired — Want some great ideas for your awards night? You’ll find that there have been over 70 years of Oscar parties in America, plus the Grammies, Emmys, the Golden Globes, BAFTA, the Logies, and all the rest. If you want inspiration, turn to some of the grandest awards events of the year and see what they’re doing right.
Party Planners, Assemble! — If you think you can plan an awards night all on your own, you’re in for a rough ride. It takes a whole lot of work to put one of these events together, so get a team of people on your side to help you plan the affair. You may even want to consider hiring a professional event planner to work with you to make it a memorable occasion.
Include the Audience — Not everyone in the audience is going to receive an award, but you should still look for ways to include them in the event. Hire a comedian to do his show around the room, or to roast some of the employees at the event. Make sure everyone can see the stage, or set up screens to ensure that everyone has a front row seat to the awards ceremony.
Hire an MC — A DJ may provide the music for the event, but you’re going to need a good MC to keep the thing moving along. You want the event to pop, and an MC can make all of the difference. You’ll want a host that has energy, is entertaining, and who can keep the event progressing at a rapid clip. They’ll need to get people hyped up and energized in order to make it a fun occasion.
Design Unique Awards -– Don’t just give out plaques or certificates, but design awards that will be unique, memorable, and elegant. You can visit your local trophy shops to see the awesome awards that they can design, and choose one that stands out from the rest.
Finish Strong — If you want to make this an awards night to remember, don’t forget the after-party. The most important part of the night may be handing out the awards, but who doesn’t want to celebrate the event with dancing, food, and cocktails? Even if you’re serving dinner at the awards event, make sure to have a little something to eat during the party. Of course, don’t forget the alcohol!
