What to Consider When Planning a Corporate Event

Last updated 7 years ago

A well-planned corporate event can make you an office hero, and the right food will have coworkers talking about your event for months afterward. But good events involve more than catering. Whether you are planning a product launch, a luncheon, or a holiday party, there are a few things you should keep in mind:

  • Create a Budget: It’s important to know how much money you can spend for your event, so plan your budget before anything else. When you pick a venue and meet with your caterer, outline your budget so that you can plan the details of your menu and décor accordingly.
  • Know the Type of Event: There are a range of events that may be put on by companies, from family-friendly retreats to formal dinners for associates and shareholders. Get an idea of what kind of event you are responsible for planning so that you can pick a venue and plan the meal accordingly.
  • Find Appropriate Entertainment: Corporate event entertainment can vary greatly, depending on the event you are planning. For more casual functions, musical performers or comedians may be appropriate, while motivational speakers might be ideal for more work-related events.
  • Hire a Professional Photographer: Pictures of a successful corporate event are ideal to showcase on your company’s website.  A short video of the party posted on your company’s YouTube Channel or sent to employees is a fun way to capture and relay the party’s vibe.
