Hiring Professional Live Music for Corporate Event

4 Tips for Hiring Professional Live Music for Corporate Events

When you have a live band playing at any kind of corporate event, it can make a drastic difference to the ambiance it creates. Any event in Scottsdale can become a lot more fun and entertaining if you have the right kind of music playing to liven up the place. There are a lot of other things that you need to take into consideration for your corporate event in order to make it a success. A lot of people might make the decision to hire professional musicians passively but if you make the decision wisely, it can make a world of a difference for your event. Here are some of the tips that we at Venues in North Scottsdale think you should keep in mind when considering a band to play live music at your next corporate event at one of our unique venues.

 

  • Professionalism Counts

 

If you hire a band that is highly professional about the way they work, it can be very beneficial for you and your event. Professionalism would mean that the musicians are easy to work with, they are willing to play the music that is perfect for the kind of environment there is at the event and they will enjoy it as much as the audience does as well. The entire event in Scottsdale becomes more streamlined when the live music that the professional band plays is great. A professional band will have all the information about them on their online websites and portals.

 

  • Quality Is Paramount

 

Before you actually select a band to play the live music at your event hosted in one of our unique venues, we suggest that you listen to recordings of their performances elsewhere. Most of the bands have their live performances recorded and uploaded on online platforms. An ideal band will play live music at your corporate event with very high sound quality and deliver the best music that your guests would prefer to listen to.

 

  • Volume Control

 

You do not want a band playing at your corporate event too low that nobody can hear or too high that you cannot hear anything else. The aspect of volume control is key when it comes to the live music at corporate events in Scottsdale and anywhere else. A professional band should be able to play live music in a more mellow volume when required but they also need to be able to spice things up when the need arises.

 

  • Sound System

 

Of course the key aspect of delivering both good volume control and sound quality is the sound system that the band uses. For good live music to be delivered to the audience properly, you need the music to be played in a proper sound system.

At our unique venues, the aspect of acoustics will be very important. Aircraft hangars are a particular specialty with Venues in North Scottsdale. They provide for some of the most special experiences when it comes to corporate events or events of any kind.

If you want to host a truly successful corporate event, we advise that you take these suggestions into consideration while hiring a band to play live music. If you want to find a unique venue where you will host the event, you should contact us for that. Feel free to contact us at any time. We’d be more than happy to sort out the best possible venue for your corporate event.

 How to Support the #WishIWasThere Campaign

Intro:
We all share in some degree of nostalgia for the fun summer events being cancelled this year. We need your help to remind everyone that not only are they missing out on a good time, but that you’re experiencing financial uncertainty.


Steps:

  1. Find a photo of you and/or your team working a popular event last summer. Please try to find an image that clearly shows people at work or wearing easily recognizable “crew” / “event staff” shirts or uniforms.
  2. Make the photo black and white. Most social media apps include filters that can do this, or you can adjust photos using your phone’s built-in photo app.
  3. Tell us why you #WishIWasThere. Write a short caption explaining what event is shown in the photo, what it means to you that you’re missing it this year and how that has affected you financially. Please include the #WishIWasThere hashtag.
  4. Post… and repeat. Publish your post on your favorite social media channel. If you have more stories to tell, share those, too.

Event Lighting Plays a Very Important Role in Success of Events

Lighting is What Brings Events to Life – Here’s How

Whether it’s a residential structure, commercial property, public place, or a temporary event, the easiest and cheapest way you can enhance the look of everything is through lighting.

With the introduction of new lighting tools and technologies, increased usage of lights, and awareness of the wonders simple lighting techniques can do, the demand for lighting professionals has increased radically. Yes, we said ‘lighting professionals’ because it has become a separate profession today.

While lighting for homes and properties are too common, something that is still not as popular is that lighting can be the sole reason for the success or failure of all types of events.

If it is a formal corporate event and you add fancy, colorful lights that keep glistening, you know where you will end up. Likewise, if it is a dance party and you add subtle, single-colored lights without any effect, it’s going to fail badly.

That said, event lighting is extremely important. Businesses’ that realize the importance and effect of effective lighting even endeavor to use specific colors in their logos and boards to develop brand association.

Nonetheless, if you are clueless how lighting can affect event ambiance and venues, here is your answer.

Below are five ways effective event lighting results in successful events.

1.      Event Lighting Impacts Moods

Colors influence moods and this is especially true when they are displayed intensely, such as through lighting. For example, white and subtle golden lights can feel your guests feel calm and relaxed while red, green, and orange can make them feel energized. Therefore, you must choose event lighting according to the type of occasion.

2.      Lighting Creates Better Experiences

So, you are looking forward to this particular event over the weekend that involves several stage acts. You get ready and reach to the event venue all excited and happy only to find out that the event is completely lit with uniform white lights. Do you think a stage act can deliver good experience and influence your mood without appropriate lighting effects that they should be enhanced with?

Of course, not!

And this is how event lighting creates experiences. The lights that you choose must be selected considering four things:

  • Nature of the event
  • Event theme
  • Event agenda
  • Event venue

3.      Event Lighting Can Effortlessly Emphasize What Needs To Be Emphasized

As mentioned in the start, the easiest and cheapest way you can decorate events and impress your guests is through event lighting. Not only does effective event lighting make venues a lot better but they can be used to highlight things that need to be highlighted.

For example, if it is a corporate event, the brand’s name and logo can be lit up using the official colors of the brand. In case of a private event like a wedding, the names of the couple can be displayed with added lights to create a unique revelation.

As much as it is important to rent appropriate venues, you can’t expect your event to do wonders without arranging for suitable event lighting.

If you are dubious about choosing the venues and how to go about light selection, leave it all to the team at Scottsdale Hangar Parties.

Reasons Corporate Events Should Be Planned At Special Venues

Ditch Your Conference Room to Arrange Events that are More Impactful

In order to make your event successful, you must endeavor to deliver a memorable experience to the guests. This is particularly important in case of corporate events where it is generally hard to capture the attendees’ interest and retain it for long.

If you find yourself struggling to impress your corporate guests or fail at delivering experiences that can be retained, you are probably doing it wrong. Since corporate events are naturally dull, things like venue, food, décor, and lighting should be used resourcefully to make them successful. 

But the question that arises here is what do you do when you have a corporate event coming up but there are budget constraints? What if you can’t afford lavish venues? Are there any alternatives to spending extravagantly on décor or food?

In such a situation, simply ditching your conference room and renting a simple venue can do. You don’t have to be overgenerous. No need to spend too much on adding several food items on the venue or paying to get the venue decorated. The goal here is to DODGE the boring conference room and choose an external venue. Sometimes all it takes to entice the audiences is a new venue, especially ones that are outdoors.

Here are a few reasons why you should not hold back from renting a corporate event venue.

Make Your Event Stand Out

By renting a specific venue for corporate events that complements the event theme and type, you get the chance to make your event memorable and impressive without putting in a lot of efforts or investing generously. This benefit is even more significant when it is a corporate event arranged for existing and prospective clients or business partners who you want to compel to partner with you.

A good venue can easily tell your guests that they are valued and keep them engaged throughout.

Get the Limelight

Corporate events that are arranged in nice venues instead of closed conference rooms are more likely to get media attention. This is something that businesses spend thousands of dollars to get.

Only by going a bit out of the box, stretching your budget a little bit or compromising on other less important things, and choosing the most suitable venue, you can get something that businesses spend thousands of dollars and years to get.

How cool is that?

Make Your Otherwise Dull Event Interesting

Events that are well-planned have a greater likelihood to capture audiences’ interest and result in increased audience engagement. By arranging your next corporate event on a unique rented venue that is appropriately embellished to create brand awareness, you will get the benefit of creating brand awareness and association without specifically investing in it. This implies increased market share and profits without targeted marketing activities.

If you are on the lookout for a decent corporate event venue already, Scottsdale Hangar Parties is where you should head right now.

How to Take the Perfect Fundraising Event Photos

Do you ever go a single day without seeing at least one person taking a photo of themselves or someone else?

A study shows that more than 1.2 trillion photos were taken in 2017 alone. Keeping this in mind, you know you need good photos to document whatever event you are holding, especially a fundraiser. After all, your donations depend on how well your stakeholders perceive your business, and this is where high-quality photos come in. Here are some things you can do to get the best photos of your fundraiser:

Connect Emotionally with Your Audience

Try capturing your photos from the attendee’s point of view. You want an outsider to look at your event’s photos and feel like they were there.

This is also a great way to market your event to potential donors. If people can imagine themselves being there, they’re more likely to donate to your cause. Empathy is also a great way to convey your message effectively.

Make Your Photos Colorful

Lighting is important for non-profit event. You don’t want your photos to appear over-edited.

With proper lighting, your photos won’t need much editing. Natural, unedited photos will go better with the theme of your event.

A photo that has natural lighting feels less like a photo and more like an experience. Try and use natural lighting as much as you can, especially if your fundraising event is outdoors. A professional photographer will know how to make the lighting appear more natural.

Think About the Message You Want to Convey

What is the purpose of your fundraiser? Keep the focus of your event in mind when talking to your photographer. Make sure there’s nothing in the shot that doesn’t serve the purpose of the fundraiser. You don’t want photos that could be portraying two opposite messages.

A good idea would be to have boards and signs that provide context for your event. Include them in the background of the photos. They’ll let your audience know about the purpose of the fundraiser.

A picture speaks a thousand words, so make sure you are taking the right photos.

Choose an Experienced Photographer

Photo quality plays a huge role in how others see your event. Only someone who knows camera angles like the back of their hand can capture a great photo.

Candid shots are great for showcasing your event. They give a natural feel to the experience. Good photographers will know that they have to shoot from different angles to make your photos look timeless.

Keep Your Photos Safe

Next year’s fundraiser depends on this year’s success. Keep your photos stored safely for future use. You will need them to help others understand what your event stands for.

Offer Portraits with Backdrops

One great way to get extra donations is to have a backdrop. Attendees can get their photos taken in front of a backdrop that represents your event. If they like the photo, they can pay to have it printed.

This will help in spreading your message and get you some extra donations as well.

Reasons to Hire a Photographer for Corporate Events

Are you finally having that corporate holiday party? Does it feel like it’s been 10 years since you last got a break? This is why you need to hire a photographer to capture this rare phenomenon.

How else will you convince yourself that work can be fun (sometimes)?

They’re Professionals

Would you really want someone coming to your company’s event and sticking out like a sore thumb? A professional photographer knows how to take photos without being obvious about it. You might think that anyone from your team can manage, but why not let them enjoy the event?

Photographers know what angles to use and how to take the perfect shot. The last thing you need is to have someone taking all the wrong photos. Imagine the only photos of the event are of everyone eating. Nobody wants memories like that.

A professional will know when to take a candid photo and who to take photos of. They’ll make sure everyone feels comfortable in front of the camera.

A professional photographer will know how to take photos that best represent your company’s culture. They’ll make sure to give you memories worth keeping.

You’ll Get High-Quality Photos

A company can take ages to gather all the employees for a holiday party. There’s always some meeting or important date coming up that stops you from holding that long-awaited event.

What if you finally have that event you had been planning for months only to see that nobody took any nice pictures of it? How will you prove that your company is a fun place to work in?

That’s why a professional photographer is important. They have all the equipment and expertise it takes. Their photos are going to be better than the ones you hurriedly captured from your phone.

The best thing about hiring a photographer is that they’ll keep your photos safe. They will, most likely, store your photos on a cloud server. No more worrying about losing that USB!

You Can Make Newsletters

Have you ever gone through your company newsletter? Does it even have photos of people who still work here? You’re probably dying to get featured in your company’s edition of Vogue.

What’s a better time to capture these images than at a party? It’s probably the only time you’re genuinely smiling. If you’re busy taking photos of everyone else, who’s going to take photos of you?

This is why a professional photographer can take your worries away and cover the event for you. You can then use these photos to show new employees what kind of events your company has held in the past. You can even use it to showcase the company culture and environment.

Do you need someone to reduce the burden of event planning for you? Having someone to photograph for you can be a lifesaver. Let our professional photographers cover all your corporate events in Scottsdale.

Corporate Event Celebrations at Scottsdale Private Event Venues

Your Guide to Corporate Event Trends

Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering and Scottsdale Private Event Venues team up for a 1,000 plus person corporate event!

Corporate Event Trends

From large to small, corporate events are becoming more and more intricate. Trends for events and catering are all coming into play for businesses that are throwing anniversary parties. And employee holiday gatherings, conference after parties, and employee team building events. This list of top corporate event trends is your go-to guide to create an amazing event for your guests.

1.Picking a theme for your corporate party

Creating a theme for your corporate event will help you to set the tone. Do you want a classy, up-scale event? Are you wanting your guests to let loose with dancing and music? Will there be a speaker that a focus needs to be created for?  Thinking of what vibe you want your event to have. This will help to create the flow of your event and how you can elevate it for your guests.

“Travel the World”

This Venues of North Scottsdale corporate party was a holiday reception with a “Travel the World” theme. Guests entered the Scottsdale Private Event Venue hangar and were greeted by an airline captain. Serving Prickly Pear Margaritas. Guests “traveled” to each culinary station to enjoy foods from around the world! All of the catering staff were dressed as airline attendants to set the mood for the traveling theme.

2. The Best Event Space For Your Corporate Party

When it comes to picking a venue for your corporate event, we suggest that you consider a few things before making a final decision.

How many guests will be attending your event? You will want to check with the venue that it has capacity for what your high end attendee count will be.

What is included with the venue?

You will want to ask the venue what they include in the venue fee. This will help you to plan what else you need to rent for your event. You will also want to find out if the venue requires you to book certain vendors, if there are power restrictions, how many hours before and after the event time that you can set-up and breakdown. Some venues handle rentals through their event production team. Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering is a full-service catering team and can also help you with all aspects of your event.

Why is location important for a venue?

When hosting a corporate party, sometimes your guests are coming from out of town. You will want to consider airport transportation and hotel accommodations close to the venue you are choosing.

The event was hosted at a North Scottsdale party hangar with enough space for 1,000 plus guests. It was the perfect venue this size group and to create a themed experience for an event to remember. This venue has a spacious indoor and outdoor area that can be transformed into any layout needed to create a fabulous event.

3. How to Make Your Corporate Event Menu Stand Out

When it comes to corporate catering, Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering is always coming up with new, unique menus that work best with the flow of the event. There are several different types of ways to present food at a corporate event. Most people think of the traditional catering buffet or plated dinner, but at Artisan by SBC we like to think outside of the box to create an experience for event guests.

Creating a Menu for a Corporate Event

At this Scottsdale Private Event Venue event in North Scottsdale, guests progressively “traveled” to each activated culinary station. Each station featured a different chef with a different menu item. Having culinary stations throughout the event helped to alleviate lines for the 1,000 attendees. Upon arrival, a Prickly Pear Margarita greet drink was given to each guest. The first two culinary stations activated were the “West Coast American” and “Mediterranean Indulgence”. Crispy Buffalo Chicken Bites Served in Waffle Cones Drizzled with Herbed Aioli were an Instagram worthy menu item.

For vegetarians at this corporate event

A Crispy Cauliflower Bite was an option. Vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters a like were also impressed by the 24-foot crudites display. This station featured Roasted Garlic Humus and Charred Red Pepper Hummus Topped with Kalamata Olives, Pine Nuts, Feta & Diced Tomato. Served with Pita Crisps, Tortilla Chips & Crudités Vegetables.

The next culinary activations included an Italian Bar with Assorted Grilled Breads, Naan, Crostini and Traditional Basil Pesto + Spinach Artichoke Dip for topping. Italian Classics including Caprese Skewers Drizzled with Queen Creek Olive Oil & Chopped Basil and Lemon Parmesan Skewer with Housemade Garlic Dip.

Next the worldly cuisine “traveled” to the guests with this Roaming Culinary Experience. Flight attendants showcased Fire Roasted Elote Street Corn and Crispy Vegetarian Spring Rolls with Sweet & Sour Sauce.

To end the evening, some Southern Comfort was a final destination for this corporate catering event. Mesquite BBQ Beef Sliders Topped with Tangy Slaw, Served on Soft Roll with Pickle Spear.

4. How to Pick the Perfect Event Vendors to Elevate Your Event

After you have booked your venue and catering team, you will want to see what other event upgrades you can add to your event. Artisan by Santa Barbara Catering and Scottsdale Private Event Venues work with so many award-winning event vendors that teaming up with both companies makes planning your event simple. Vendors that you will want to consider are: entertainment, upgraded bar services or props, lighting and sound, lounge rentals, staging, photography and photo booths, videography, valet, branding, and floral.

At this particular 1,000 person corporate event at Scottsdale Private Event Venues there were several vendors that helped to bring the party to life.

Staging, lighting, and sound: Divinity Event Lighting

Photographer: Aribella Photography

Bar Enhancement: Tap Truck

Photobooth: Crazy Shotz Photo Booth

Lounge Furniture and Decor: AZ Retro Rentals

Games: Epic Party Team

5. Create the perfect Corporate Event timeline

After booking the venue, the catering company, all of the vendors, and deciding on the perfect decor, a step that must not be forgotten is the timeline of your event. Not having an event timeline could hinder the guests experience. Event planners must go back to the overall flow of the event. How much “work” time will be at the event, and how much “play” time should be allotted. Without balancing both types, an event may not accomplish the goals that the company had for its guests.

A timeline is also important to keep all of the vendors on schedule, especially for a 1,000 person event. If the caterer does not know when the CEO is going to speak to guests, they may time their hot food to be displayed during the wrong time. Many times your venue point of contact or your caterer can help you decide what the best flow for your event should be so that your guests have the best experience possible.

Planning the perfect Corporate Party

With these simple steps, you will be on your way to throwing the ultimate corporate event. From finding the perfect venue, creating a delicious catering menu, booking fun and interactive entertainment. Having a corporate event theme will help to tie all of your vendors together. Last, but not least taking time to plan your event timeline will help make a smooth event for all.

The Basics of a Post-Event Corporate Reception

The Basics of a Post-Event Corporate Reception

Gone are the days when week-long workshops and full-day networking sessions were used to end with bland Q/A sessions and product launches. Now, organizations try to make the most of such opportunities to market themselves. This is the reason why the niche of “post-event receptions” has formed. Companies throw a party for its staff and attendees after any corporate event and engagement that stays less formal.

The idea of giving such post-event corporate receptions is to make sure everyone goes home with a cheerful mood. If you are also going to extend your corporate event to such a happy note, then read on. We are going to discuss some of the basics that you need to take care of in order to organize a successful post-event reception.

Change the Venue

It would be better if you have that post-event reception held somewhere else. Attendees will definitely like to experience a new place after staying for an entire day and sometimes many working days in the same place. It would be better if you sort this post-event venue in advance. Try to work with a company that can offer you all sorts of venues. This way, you will be able to choose different locations for the main event/ workshop/conference and post-event chill-out.

Don’t Fix the Itinerary of the Post-Event Reception

You need to differentiate between your more formal main corporate engagement and less formal post-reception event. Setting a tight itinerary will only dissuade people from attending it. If you don’t want to hear excuses from many attendees that they couldn’t attend the post-event reception for some “reason,” then keep it “no-pressure zone.”

Make sure both participants from outside and your own team can enjoy their time instead of keep on thinking about networking. The post-reception should be a gathering where people should interact with each other without the pretext of “business.”

Lighting and Music Should Be on Point

Giving your post-event reception a slight look of “club partying” won’t harm anyone. A  DJ playing live music and lighting dancing around— such improvements will surely make your post-event reception a hit among all the relevant people. Here too, you need to work with an event contractor that can fulfill your varied entertainment requirements.

Luckily, you can find such a contractor in Arizona that can arrange all sorts of live music for your event. From country to jazz and electronic to pop, you can hire live acts for your post-event celebration via them.

Add a Dash of Interactive Entertainment

Having interactive entertainment in your post-event reception will be a cherry on top. Getting served by an aerial bartender is definitely going to cheer your guests. Similarly, set up a stall for local wine or cheese tasting to make things more interactive and interesting.

A company like Scottsdale Private Event Venues can help you in arranging all the details of a post-event corporate reception. They can offer you a lot of venue options along with top-quality catering and ample entertainment services at very reasonable rates.
