Are you having or organising a corporate event? Do you need some help locating a place and finalising details? There are a lot of important things to remember when planning a corporate night out. Here are some things to keep in mind.
Set Your Budget and Brainstorm
Figure out how many people will be in attendance, how much the food will cost, entertainment, and the location of the venue. You will no doubt want your event to be memorable, so the venue should be in a fun environment that encourages engagement. Think about all of the cool things your workmates enjoy. Do they like sports, alcohol, food, music? Plan the activities for the evening around these.
When and Where
You’ll want to choose a date and time that is convenient. Thursday or Friday evenings are great because they fall at the end of the workweek and everyone will be in a good mood because of that. A few weeks before Christmas is usually a good time because that is when most people will be able to make it to a party. The location is important. When you think about what your co-workers enjoy, it will help you figure out if they want to talk or do an activity instead. Think about the number attending and make sure they have enough room.
If you choose a location like a bowling centre, a lot of options come with the venue; this will make the difficult task of coming up with activities a whole lot easier for the organiser. The attendees are offered a lot of options and can choose how they would like to spend their evening. They are guaranteed to have fun!
Giving out gifts and party favours are a great way to make the evening more fun, but they are not necessary. If you choose to give a gift, make sure it is useful and thoughtful. This will make everyone feel special and leave with a smile.
It’s never been easier to plan your corporate night out.
