Use of Technology for Better Event Hosting

Use of Technology for Better Event Hosting

Technology is now an essential thread of our social fabric and lifestyle. It has dribbled into everything that we do all day knowingly or instinctively. Corporate events or any event for that matter have also been imprinted with the omnipresence and pervasiveness of technology.

Planners and managers are in agreement that the use of technology has breathed new life into events. Now, people ask for the latest event technology trends while meeting planners and organizers. It has been noted that the integration of technology positively impacts events in many capacities.

  • It swells attendance
  • It increases engagement
  • It cuts down the cost.

Let’s have a look at some of the event technologies that are in vogue these days.

Projection Mapping for the Creation of Augmented Reality Experience

Projection mapping can turn around the ambiance of the entire venue for better. This ambiance detailing is done through multiple projectors that cast still and moving images to all the large facades in the venue to create an interactive 3D display.

Projection mapping is also budget-friendly. So, you don’t have to think too much about cost management.  For instance, simple projected mapping on a hangar ceiling can transform the venue into a futuristic dome. You can also use projection mapping along with music to make it a part of interactive entertainment.

Digital and diode lighting controlled through computers can also add to the ultramodern visual ambiance that you are trying to create with projection mapping.

Social Media Walls for Better Engagement

This is an event technology trend that has been around for a while and not going anywhere anytime soon. Put a social media wall throw multiple screens on display with an event hashtag. Post all the posts and pictures with your event hashtag from across different social media platforms to these digital walls. This event tech trend has many upsides.

  • The activity surrounding it generates organic real-time excitement and engagement.
  • Guests at the event become your brand marketer.

Facilitate the Use of Smartphone

People will use their smartphones no matter how interesting your event lineup is. So, start banking on this new-age human instinct.  To begin with, provide free internet. Secondly, go online with your program timeline, handout, menu, and any other itinerary. People will find it easy to look at concurrent event details through their phones and tablets.

Put on a VR Show

If your event entails a short guest list, then you can also think of putting on a VR show. VR is a trending event technology that ensures maximum attendance. You can also use it for some subtle branding.

Live Stream Your Event

If your event consists of music or any other performing art display, then you should make the most of it.  Live stream theses performances to gather a virtual audience for your event. At no cost, you can fetch a good number of eyeballs for your event.

Scottsdale Private Event Venues provides event hosting, catering, and entertainment as per the needs of your preferred theme. The company can also incorporate the latest technology trends in your events to spice things up.

 

 

Latest Corporate Event Trends

Useful Corporate Event Trends You Must Know About and Utilize

Everything ranging from physical features like the theme of your corporate events to the use of the latest technology can increase the success rate of your event radically. These features are known as event ‘trends’ that come and go with time.

Things like networking opportunities, interesting food presentation, unique food items, and fun elements, etc. have more impact on the success of your corporate event than you think they do. In addition to these usual attractions, there are high-end trends like green initiatives and yoga breaks that impress the guests.

If you are planning a corporate event and are wondering which corporate event trends should be followed, here are a few that will help you pull off the best event possible.

Corporate Event Trends

1.     Health and Fitness

One way to show your guests that they are valued and keep them energized throughout an otherwise dull corporate event is by incorporating a ‘health and fitness’ part. Two easy ways you can do this is by accommodating a couple of exercise breaks in between the event and offering the guests healthy snacks. These will not only deliver a nice impression but will also keep the attendees rejuvenated and motivated.

2.     Gamification

Every industry is trying to incorporate gamification into its corporate events. Gamification refers to the introduction of games in events that keep the guests entertained and relaxed. Nonetheless, these games shouldn’t be completely irrelevant or have no purpose. They should rather be focused on cognitive skills/development and encourage positive things such as team building, critical thinking, etc. You can even organize a short gaming competition amid an event to make the events more vibrant by infusing a sense of competition.

3.     Mobile Event Applications

Event applications simplify things for the attendees. These applications feature event-related things like the agenda, outcomes, goals, names, and particulars of the spokespeople, note-taking, question-raising, etc. These applications are not only really impressive but play a prominent role in keeping events more organized and interactive.

4.     Green Initiatives

The world is slowly and gradually shifting to being green as people become more conscious about harming the environment that they are living in. If you forget or neglect introducing green initiatives and following things that add to environmental safety, you will be making a big mistake.

At the bare minimum, what you can do to make an impression and preserve the environment is forbidding the use of plastic products such as water bottles and polythene bags for anything during the event.  Additionally, you can utilize state-of-the-art LED bulbs that consume less energy than the fancy lights do and use mobile apps to share any documents or images instead of distributing printed templates. This information should also be highlighted and shared with the attendees to have a longer lasting impact.

5.     Desirable Event Venues

This might sound like an ordinary one, but it is as important as all the other trends on this list. There is an appropriate location/environment for everything, so the location that you choose for your corporate event or meeting should be well-suited to it. You can’t expect your event to be successful if you organize your corporate event in a playground, can you?

The best you can do to ensure the location is best-suited to your event is focusing on things like convenience and desirability, not only the price when browsing through the options.

  • Know Your Audience

 

The entertainment is majorly for your guests so that they can relax and loosen up a bit. Therefore, it is imperative that you keep the kind of audience in mind before hiring entertainment.

If you are organizing a birthday party for children, you will probably consider a hilarious magic show for the kids to keep them engaged throughout the event. On the other hand, if you are planning a party for your friends, you will probably consider hiring a DJ or a live performance by a popular music band.

Thus, it is important to know what age group your guests mostly belong to and hire entertainment according to that.

 

  • Know What You Want to Accomplish Through Entertainment

 

You don’t know but entertainment can help you achieve the purpose of the entire event. Yes, entertainment is a very powerful tool in conveying your message or goal to the audience.

If you are organizing a corporate event and want your entertainment to help accentuate the overall motive of your event, hire the entertainment accordingly.

If you are organizing an award ceremony and don’t want it to be boring. Hire a lively, fun entertainment which let the night flow smoothly and doesn’t make the audience sleepy. You can also hire a standup comedian to help your audience cheer up. This way your overall event would be fun and totally memorable as well.

 

  • Know the Latest Entertainment Trends

 

Before hiring any sort of entertainment it is good to stay updated on the latest entertainment trends that are in these days.

For example, hiring a popular music band to perform at your party is a fun trend that many opt for. This elevates the overall appeal of the event and makes it memorable for the guests. Hiring Jazz musicians or a violin soloist is a trend that most people follow when the event is more sophisticated like a corporate dinner.

How to Choose the Menu for Your Corporate Event

Meet the Catering Needs of Your Corporate Event Diligently

One major reason why corporate events are organized is for appreciating the company’s employees.

Time and again these events have proven they play a key role in motivating employees. Recognition is always welcomed by everyone. These events do just that for the employees that serve as a valuable asset to a company. A lot of thought is given into such events especially for their catering as food becomes the center of attention in any event.

Let’s have a look at how you can meet the catering needs of your corporate event diligently.

 

  • Keep the Numbers in Mind

 

When planning for catering, you first need to consider the number of guests you will be having. Just think of the embarrassment you’d have to face if you run out of food while certain guests remain unattended. If a large number of people will be gathered then try to avoid using finger food and snacks as the main course. Keep them separately for starters.

 

  • Remember the Designations

 

Make sure a few items are according to the preference of the senior management. Before sending an approved list to the caterers, get it through the eyes of the senior management for approval. Also, add a note to let them know they can make additions to the list. The CEOs and COOs of your companies will surely love this idea.

 

  • Plan a Seasonal Catering

 

Bring in all the seasonal specialties. Choose your menu according to the seasonal favorites. Your guests will love the fresh meals prepared only for them.

 

  • Keep in Mind the Type of Audience

 

While planning the catering, remember a few things. Whether the employees being invited will enjoy snacks more or would they be more interested in traditional dishes? If a group of seniors in being invited for a conference then traditional dishes will certainly take preference over snacks.

If your guest list is going to comprise the younger lot then make sure burgers and pizzas are a definite part of the menu.

 

  • Choose from Seated Dining or Buffet

 

The type of menu you choose will also determine if a buffet would be convenient or seated dining would be preferred much more.

As you can see there’s quite a lot that on just the catering needs of the corporate event alone! It is safe to say it is not an easy task. You need to be very careful with the choices you make in terms of planning a menu as people on the company’s highest designations are going to be attending the event. A good menu is a great impression. If you don’t know how to make these choices on your own, you can always take professional help. Venues in North Scottsdale provide catering services for corporate events. Just give them the number of attendees and they will bring an amazing cuisine to the table, including seasonal favorites.

You would never have dreamt of it before but if you live in Phoenix, Arizona then you can set up your car show at a jet hangar.

Let’s have a look at some of the reasons why it would be a splendid show because of the amazing location.

 

  • Make Use of the Huge Space

 

A car show needs a lot of space. All the new models and the concept cars on display need their room. You can use the space available in the hangar for as many cars as you would like to put on display. Despite the displays, the hangar will have enough space to accommodate all your guests and for more additions to the event.

You can have access to a space of 75000 square feet both indoors and outdoors if you organize your event at a jet hangar. That will more than fulfill your requirements.

 

  • Arrive at Your Event in a Plane

 

Yes, that’s right! You can make a grand entry at your event. After all the guests have assembled, you can swoop into the event in your private jet. Awe your guests with your stylish entry. Take pictures inside the jet, climbing out of it and even outside it. It can stay in the center of the event for everyone to take pictures with it. When you rent the hangar, you can also the rent the jet!

 

  • Accommodate Thousands of People

 

The hangar is big enough to facilitate a gathering of about 2000 people. For your car show, you can have a completely sold out event. All the people can fit in easily at the hangar. In fact, you can even add round tables and chairs for a formal dinner. As an added entertainment you can request the waiters and servers to be dressed as air hostesses.

It will add a feel as if the entire event is taking inside of an airplane. You could be having all this fun during a flight!

 

  • Have Room for a Bar & a Barbeque

 

You can set up an open bar at the hangar. If you are using the outdoor space, you will have the room to set a live barbeque for your guests. These two things are just what your event needs for its promotion. All those attending the event will be talking about it for a very long time!

Entertainment for Corporate Events

4 Entertainment Ideas for Your Corporate Events

Corporate events tend to get dull halfway through. They begin with a bang as all the guests arrive and are introduced.

They also end well with the open bar and the amazing catering. But the middle of the event becomes dull when a business review is carried out and only a few people are awarded medals and certificates for their performances.

The rest of the guests tend to tune out until dinner is announced. Corporate entertainment makes sure your guests are with you throughout the event.

Let’s have a look at some of the types of entertainment you must hire for your corporate event to make the whole of it quite memorable.

 

  • Stand Up Comedians

 

They are one of the most favorable candidates for entertainment at corporate events. Stand up comedians can do wonders with a script. All you have to do is give them a little background about some of the senior management and they can make the toughest of them laugh.

Most corporate events are set up for business reviews. These can be a little tense for some of the members present. Bringing in a comedian will bring everyone’s smiles back!

 

  • Concerts by Famous Bands

 

Another well-appreciated form of entertainment for corporate events is a concert by a renowned band. Add rock, metallic or jazz, whatever you know your audiences will enjoy the most. A live band will get them all on their feet and on the dance floor. You can also let your guests make requests for their favorite songs. A photo session with the famous band will be cherry on top!

 

  • Dueling Piano Shows

 

This is a very classy and interactive form of entertainment for your guests. Two performers will be playing the songs that your audiences will choose, on their pianos. They will also be singing along the songs.

In fact, even the audiences are allowed to sing along their favorite lines. This interactive show will be a treat for everyone whether they were attending the event with friends or all by themselves.

 

  • Dance Teams

 

A dance team performing on some of the famous tunes out there is also a great choice for your event. If you know that most of your audiences will be seated during the performances then this is perfect for you. You can request group dances, couple dances or even solo dances with props.

You will have unlimited options with a dance performance. If your company promotes a product specific to a particular culture, then you can also add cultural dances to the performance. It will add value to your event!

Entertainment at official events becomes a matter of choice and you have to pick options that keep the senior management and all the employees happy. Venues of Scottsdale can hire entertainment for your event if you are having your event at their private venues. We will find the perfect match for your event and make sure you and your guests have a wonderful time.

Krembo: A Passover Dessert from Breads Bakery Recipe & Photo

Credit: http://bobbyflay.com/recipes/recipes/164/krembo-a-passover-dessert-from-breads-bakery

Coconut Macaroons (for the base)
120g egg whites (from 4 medium eggs)
230g granulated sugar (1 cup + 2 tablespoons)
210g finely shredded unsweetened coconut (2½ cups, packed)
30g apricot jam (2 tablespoons)

1. Whisk the sugar and egg whites together in a medium-sized bowl. Set the bowl on top of a pot of water over medium heat to create a Bain Marie. Heat the mixture, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Remove bowl from heat.

2. Fold the coconut and apricot jam into the egg white mixture until fully combined. Cover the surface with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

3. Using your hands, roll the coconut batter into 50 small balls, approximately 1 heaping teaspoon (about 12 grams) in size, and arrange them on a sheet pan 2 inches apart. Wet your fingers slightly and flatten each ball to create a disk approximately 1¾” in diameter and ¼”thick.

4. Bake the macaroons at 380 degrees F for 4-5 minutes, or until golden brown.

5. Allow the macaroons to cool. Freeze for 30 minutes. The macaroon bases can be made up to three days in advance.

Italian Meringue (for the filling)
150g egg whites (from 5 medium eggs)
1 pinch of salt
260g granulated sugar (1 1/3 cups)
80mL water
120g glucose (¼ cup + 1 tablespoon)

1. Combine the sugar, water and glucose in a very clean pot and place over medium heat. Monitor the temperature with a candy thermometer.

2. Put the egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and set aside.

3. When the syrup reaches 220 degrees F, start to whip the egg whites and salt on medium speed until they form stiff peaks.

4. When the syrup reaches 243 degrees F, keep the mixer on medium speed and slowly pour the hot syrup down the side of the mixing bowl into the egg whites, being careful not to hit the whisk.Turn the mixer to high speed and whisk until the bowl no longer feels warm to the touch.

5. Divide the meringue evenly into 3 bowls, one for each flavor. Follow the recipes below to make each flavor meringue. Fold the additions into the meringue just enough that they are evenly incorporated. Don’t overmix.

8. Spoon the meringues into a piping bag fitted with a 1” round tip.

3. Before the chocolate sets, garnish with the above items.

Ditch the Conference Room Book an Unusual Event Venue

Ditch the Conference Room Book an Unusual Event Venue

Therefore ditch the Conference Room Book an Unusual Event Venue. Events are all about experience.  In the future experience will continue to be a major influence as events increase in number. Participants are spoilt for choice. In 2017. In the events industry alone, we’ve listed 52 event industry events and 29 awards events for events – that’s 81 events in total for event professionals to choose from. The situation is identical in other industries too.

So apart from destination, the second biggest feature that is guaranteed to make your event stand out from the competition, is the venue. We’ve all seen congress centres and hotel conference rooms in all of their available varieties. To create a different, unique impression for potential visitors, you need to “think different”. See Genioso 10-reasons-to-ditch-the-conference-room-and-book-an-unusual-event-venue/Read the whole article here

Here are 10 ways an unusual venue will transform your event into a unique experience

  1. Having a unique venue for your event will definitely make it stand out amidst competing events.
  2. Venues that are not typical for a particular industry or sector are much more likely to create media ‘Buzz’. We’re talking traditional, digital and social media. A unique venue will always provide a more interesting story to write about and share.
  3. As a result Media Buzz will, in turn, improve the event’s attendance. Who doesn’t want to be part of a unique experience that’s the ”talk of the town”?
  4. With all the Buzz and attendance of course comes engagement. As participants and media become part of this unique event they are much more likely to talk about it, share their thoughts and experiences.
  5. And so we come to social proof, testimonials and endorsements. No longer will you need to ask for a recommendation, just collect the articles about your event, the user tweets, the positive mentions, comments and shares.
  6. Even long into the future, the original venue and unique experience provided, are much more likely leave long-lasting memories with your events’ participants.
  7. Which brings us to the “WOW” effect and…
  8. Especially the event producer, being remember as original, unique and creative.
  9. Therefore being a memorable organizer of events, a producer who creates Buzz, attendance and engagement – you will always generate sponsorships!
  10. This is not so much a “unique experience” for participants, more of a unique experience for your wallet. Unusual venues can work out cheaper than traditional, more lavish locations, in terms of fee to hire.
