Good planning is important to ensure that your corporate events run smoothly. No matter if you are hiring someone to do it for you or doing it yourself, here are 4 essential things that must be planned well for your corporate events.
1 Theme or Concept
This is a big idea and it’s important to have one as it helps to tie all the details together like the food, music, decor, and activities. Look at your guest list and think about a theme or concept that is appropriate for them. Brainstorm a variety of ideas and see which one would be the most engaging.
Having a clear idea of how much you are spending for the event can help you streamline the event venue, caterer, entertainment, AV equipment and so on. Also set aside some extra funds in case there are additional expenses you haven’t accounted for.
3 Event Venue
Before you set about booking an event venue, take your number of guests, rental cost, seating style, location and other important information into consideration. Preparing a checklist would help to simplify things.
Determine how long your event will be and then allocate time for your main agenda first. If your seminar is going to take 4 hours, you can break it into 4 one-hour sessions. In between, you can pick other supporting activities that your audience can relate to or mini breaks that help them recharge.
