When planning a corporate event you first need to keep in mind what the objective of the event is. Once you know what the objective is then all the other details such as the venue and the theme can be centred on the objective.
Find a Location
When you are looking for a location you can even try looking online as this would help you with your decision. For example, if you are looking for conference venues you can search for corporate functions in Melbourne online as this would give you a list of venues that would enable you to host your event. Before you decide on a location you should first decide on whether you want to host the event indoors or outdoors. If you want to try something out of the ordinary, depending on the objective of the event you can even plan an even out at sea. For example, if you can find a boat that can hold the number of people that you want, having a corporate event out at sea could also be an option.
It is best that you do not leave any detail until the last minute. You may think that putting off the minor details until the last minute will not have any effect however, it is important that you know that minor details can have a big impact. Therefore you should not leave any detail until the final minute.
You should make sure that the staff that you hire for the event is well trained and competent. This is important in order for the event to be carried out efficiently. In order for the staff to be well informed it is your job to inform the staff of all the necessary details that they need to know. For example, when it comes to the food the staff should know what they are serving as guest will ask the question ‘what is this?’ The staff should also be dressed in smart attire as this would add the look of the event.
Corporate events are usually invitees only therefore to ensure people do not crash the event you should make sure that the guest list is organised. You should inform the guest that they need to bring the invitations with them however, there is a chance that a few guest may forget this request. Therefore in the occasion that this does happen you should have an organised system in order to know who is invited for the event and who is not. It would be easy for you if you were to have a system such as having the names of all your guest in alphabetical order printed out on a piece of paper. Therefore if a guest does not have their invitation with them then all they have to do is tell you their name. Having the names in alphabetical order will be beneficial to you as it would save you a lot of time and speed up the process of letting guest into the event.
