How to Bring Your Corporate Event to Life with a Big Opening and Food
It’s expected of events to be lively and full of entertainment. However, that doesn’t happen all the time and particularly not with corporate events. Tedious state of affairs—this is how one can define the most of corporate events that are just organized for the sake of it.
This happens when no planning, creativity, and hard work is put in making the night memorable. With sleepy proceedings all through the event, neither your employees will feel rewarded, nor can you build new partnerships.
In short, if you are organizing an event, make sure it brims with energy. If not all, it should make most of your guests happy and chirpy. In order to ace corporate event management, you will need to get at least two things right: the opening and food.
Give It an Adrenaline-Filled Kick-Start
If you want to get things going right from the beginning. Start off the event with a bang. For instance, try to emulate the setting of New Year countdown. Use of music along with fireworks and light shows makes for a grand opening of the night and that too without straining your budget.
However, the same ambitious grand opening can become a whole lot of mess without proper planning. Make sure that all the guests are properly checked in before the event clock starts ticking. Also, have some greeters in place who can guide guests through the venue. Remember that you can only off to an energy-filled start if guests are comfortable in their place.
Visitors’ Energy Depends on Food and Beverages
Yes, many people come to events for free food and drinks. So, get along with this reality and use it to make your event successful. Even if that’s not the case, people can’t be engaged in chatter and activities all the time. They need refueling in the form of their favorite foods and drinks to remain animated. Try to slot in these two things if you want to make your event more eventful.
- In case of small to medium gatherings, great every guest with an entrée.
- Set a moving bar so people can indulge wherever they are sitting/standing.
Variety is the key when you are planning the food. Have exotic, continental, oriental—everything on the platter. People love to try out new food when it’s free. The pursuit of new food and instantaneous reviews on it will keep your party abuzz.
Take care of people’s food preferences from an ideological and medical standpoint as well. Make sure there are some pure vegan, kosher and halal options in the menu. Lactose intolerant people should also find something to eat. The shortage of food and beverages is the most awful thing that an event organizer can experience. So, it’s important to get accurate headcount beforehand to arrange the catering.
