Here we have assembled some great tips that you can follow to hire an amazing catering business.

 

  • Ask for Recommendations or Check Out the Website

 

If you have little to no experience in planning an event, this is something you should definitely do.

Ask your family, friends or colleagues for catering service suggestions. You can also check online reviews to weed out unsatisfactory caterers. If possible, try to personally contact the reviewer and ask about the catering service in detail. This can make it easy for you to narrow down your list of catering services and help you to choose the right one.

 

  • Provide Tastings

 

No matter how perfect the food pictures and their descriptions are, your safe bet is always to ask your potential caterer to provide tastings of their food.

If the caterer is not willing to provide tasting, avoid taking the risk and consider other caterers who are willing to conduct a food-tasting session before the event. This way, you will be able to figure out if the food has lived up to your expectations or not. Trust us, going through the tasting session beforehand can save you from a lot of disappointment and embarrassment in the near future. This will also be a great chance for you to meet the chef himself and squeeze out all the necessary information from him related to the preparation, presentation, and customization of the food.

 

  • Flexibility

 

There are many catering services that are willing to customize the menu according to their customers’ wishes.

The caterers will consider changing the menu taking into account your specific dietary, budget, and taste. For instance, if you are a vegetarian, the caterer will make sure that the menu is comprised of all the veggie-based dishes. So, whenever you get in touch with a catering service, do ask them if they assist special menu requirements.

 

  • Staff Availability

 

Before you sign any contract, make sure that you pick the catering company that has a staff required to fully service your important event.

The amount of staff will largely depend on the nature of your event. If it’s a big event, comprising of many guests, make sure that the staff has a good amount of well-experienced workers who can easily cater to the needs of your guests. Discuss your plans with the head of the caterer and let him know what your expectations really are.

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.

Miss Jetset Event 2017

Saturday October 7 was the 2nd annual Miss Jetset Crowning Event at JetSet Magazine’s hangar!

The hangar is located at the Scottsdale Air Park, which was a perfect venue for this event.

Our team was stationed at the hangar all week to make sure the event was 100% perfect when guests arrived. Our lighting team from Divinity Event Lighting produced an atmosphere that combined fun and luxury, therefore creating the perfect ambiance for our guests.

Guests flew in from all over the United States to attend the event! Everyone was dressed to the nines and rocked the red carpet. The night was filled with fun, dancing, and drinks. Our fabulous bar staff did another wonderful job at this event. We use Raise the Bar Bartending for all of our events, and they never to be anything less than outstanding.  In addition to the great drinks, the dessert served was amazing! Butta Cakes is a local bakery that makes bite-sized cream filled cakes that are delicious and easy to eat!

Around 10:00 PM, the 2017 Miss Jetset arrived to the party on her private Jet. Adaliz Martinez stepped out of the jet in a
gorgeous sequin gown that glimmered in the spotlight. Shortly after, she was crowned Miss Jetset 2017, was given a $50,000 prize, full page spread in the magazine, and is now on the cover for the next Jetset issue.

Overall, Miss Jetset 2017 was a HUGE success! We can’t wait to do more events at this awesome venue. It has the flexibility to turn into a nightclub at the flip of a switch, therefore, makes it ideal for any corporate parties, anniversaries, holiday parties, or galas!
