The Key Factors To Planning a Successful Corporate Function
Anyone who has been faced with the challenge of planning a corporate event knows how stressful it can be. When planning your next corporate function it is important to focus on the following three main aspects:
1. What is your budget? This should include everything from
entertainment and venue to refreshments.
2. What type of event is it; a holiday party, product launch, company outing, seminar, etc. and what are you hoping to achieve? This may seem like a simple question but, it is crucial in determining factors like what type of talent or theme will best suit your demographic.
3. How many people are expected to attend your corporate event? This will allow you to choose the proper venue and plan appropriately for last minute issues like in climate weather at an outside event.
Taking care of the large tasks first allows you to have time to focus on the logistics of your event. When planning your corporate function it is key to remember that the details are what will make your event go from ordinary to impressive.
The Pros and Cons of Hiring Outside Help
Many event planning companies and booking agencies take a cookie cutter approach to planning events. These turn-key (all in one) packages may be enticing at first glance but don’t be misled. Often times they lead to companies paying for services they don’t need and more importantly not leaving money in your budget for specific requirements such as setting up/breaking down the event, corporate logo favors, etc.
