The Bosses Checklist For Your Corporate Event

When you are planning a corporate event for the first time there is a lot you need to think about, but the first thing you need to think about is how much work you want to do yourself for the corporate event and how much money you have available for the corporate event.
If money is no object but you don’t want to do any of the planning and organising yourself then it is recommended you call in professional corporate event planners who will take the job out of your hands. However, if you do have a tight budget to stick to or you would prefer to do it yourself then please see the short checklist below which will help you get the ball rolling for your corporate event.
You need to think about the reason you are organising the event, the message you want to give your staff and what you hope to achieve from the corporate event. This needs to be thought about before you start organising the event so you know you can get it right.
Firstly you need to think about where you are going to hold the event; you need to decide if it’s somewhere that needs to accommodate your staff and if staff members are able to get there and back easily as drivers and non drivers. You also need to think about providing food and drink or if people are to buy their own.
Entertainment needs to be considered too, are you going to have a live band? Live bands keep parties going but it can be hard to suit everyone’s tastes so maybe a DJ would be a better option where people can request their own songs and music?
Will you have an award ceremony at the corporate event to award those that have worked so hard for you and deserve to be recognised for their hard work? It can be a really nice touch to give a small token of your appreciation, a glass award or glass trophy to a member of your team, to show your gratitude. Glass trophies and glass awards are really well fitted for corporate events as they sparkle and shine – just like you and your staff members do! Plus glass awards and glass trophies look great on stage and in photos too.
