Corporate events, like conferences, seminars, operational strategy meetings, management trainings, shareholder meetings, or company picnics add spice to the sometimes humdrum daily grind of life in the business world. These events allow people to come together for a common purpose, socialize, innovate, and invigorate the life’s blood of a company. Unfortunately, too many corporate events are boring or poorly organized, resulting in what many attendees may see as a waste of time. When planning your next corporate event, make sure that you address these three key elements.
1. Clearly Stated Goals
Certain types of corporate events already have clear goals. For instance, the goal of a shareholder meeting is to present company shareholders with a clear and honest picture of how a given company is doing and what direction the company will go in the coming year. Other events, like conferences or operational strategy meetings, are much for flexible in their goals. However, keeping the event purposeful and on track (and, as a result, successful) depends on outlining and communicating 3-5 clear goals prior to the beginning of the event.
2. Great Food
Admittedly, if the only thing attendees remember about your corporate meeting is the food, then it probably wasn’t a very successful meeting (and you should definitely follow Tip #1 and rethink the goals of your meeting). On the other hand, great food provides attendees a chance to relax, enjoy themselves, and refuel for the next seminar or training session. If your event venue allows you to choose your own vendors, opt for a catering from a local restaurants that also provides catering services.
3. An Inspiring Venue
Hotel conference rooms are convenient . . . and that’s about all they are. From drab décor to dim lighting a dull hotel venue isn’t going to inspire much more than groans and yawns. A venue that inspires is also one that’s outside the box: think local museums, funky restaurants with private rooms, or even corporate event venues like Texas Old Town that boasts indoor meeting areas and inspiring outdoor grounds.
