A corporate event or a state-of-the-company address can reward your employees for their hard work and keep them informed about changes to come. But remember that you need to make a series of crucial decisions when you want to plan the perfect corporate event. Future’s Past Events as an experienced audiovisual company in Toronto has listed below four tips on how to design the appropriate function for your business.
Tips for your Corporate Event
Tip 1: Choose the Perfect Venue
The primary step in creating a memorable corporate event is finding the right venue. Of course, the type of venue that you will choose for the event is depending on the type of event you intend to put on. If you have planed to hold a meeting where you speak and your employees listen, you may want to choose a location with ample seating. Or if you have thought to throw an end-of-the-year bash for your employees who have exceeded expectation s, you might want to choose a location with large, open space where your employees can move around.
FPE recommends the most common venues for these types of gatherings that are:
- Art galleries
- Banquet halls
- Conference centers
- Convention centers
- Rooftop gardens
We know well that the venue is an interesting place that your employees will talk about for weeks to come. Spend a few days. Our team will help to researching potential venues in your city to find the right place for your event.
Tip 2: Serve Great Food
After you have chosen the ideal site for your gathering, you need to make sure you serve the perfect food as well. No matter if you want a lavish spread of gourmet foods or an elegant dinner, you don’t have to break the bank to feed your employees. Simply consider surveying your employees’ tastes in foods. In this way you can maximize the budget and minimize expenses by only serving foods you know your employees will enjoy.
Tip 3: Choose a High-Quality Audio/Visual Company
Are cases where lots of corporate events take advantage of a projection system to help engage the attendees. If you want to show a video clip highlighting that year’s achievements or you want to excite your employees with a rousing speech, investing in high-quality audio visual equipment and choosing a professional AV team will provide you with a crisp picture and clear sounds that everyone can enjoy.
Of course the choosing the right video equipment is important, but remember that selecting the right sound system is important to keep any party going too. This will ensure you never have to ask if the people in the back can hear you. In this way you can’t worry if your chosen venue doesn’t have quality audio visual components, because our team will be there to help.
Tip 4: Try to Make It Fun
The entertainment is the most essential thing of your corporate event. Entertainment is in particular important if you require your employees to take time away from their personal lives. Choosing the right activity for your gathering will depend greatly on the overall makeup of your work staff.
For example, if the company hires recent college graduates, you may want to include technological diversions your employees can engage in. Using a twitter photo booth, video game stations or funny Internet memes displayed on the wall can help employees in their 20s have a great time.
Or if the average worker cares more about their retirement fund than a new phone, try something more low-key. These employees may enjoy a nice drink and a pleasant conversation with co-workers.
As part of the entertainment, you need music to help set the mood. The wrong music can kill a social event faster than anything else. We as a full package AV will impress you with our experienced DJ who can gauge the feeling of the room and play the right tunes.
