Mistakes When Planning a Corporate Event
There are a few common mistakes many people get wrong when planning corporate events. First of all, they often underestimate the amount of planning it takes to put on an event which leads to start planning the event too late. Planning any event takes quite a bit of time (roughly 5-6 months). Since businesses may only have one or two events per year, it’s easy to leave planning to the last minute when they see the date so far down the calendar. Leaving things to the last minute tends to be where office party planners start to run into problems. Spaces for events generally book up months in advance, as do vendors like entertainers and caterers. Speaking about the venue, another common mistake is to not check out the space ahead of time. The size of the venue is often a determining factor in the success of your corporate event, and unfortunately the person in charge of planning a business event often doesn’t take the time to visit the space beforehand, and only rely on pictures from the website. While you don’t need to continuously visit the site prior to your event, you should go at least once early on in the planning stages, as this is the only way to ensure that the space is big enough for your group and can accommodate any additional needs you may have such as stages.
Common Corporate Event Planning Mistakes
Boosting employees’ morale is a major component of having a corporate event or office party. After all, think about the office managers who plan activities for their employees like lawn bowling, secret Santa, or bean bag tosses. But there are always those who may not be tempted by these games, and this is where you should take the time to consider your entertainment options. You will need entertainment at your event that will cater the most of your employees for the event to be a success. Music is usually a huge part of any successful corporate event, and if you don’t put some effort into picking the right corporate event band, your next corporate event could be put in jeopardy as nobody is having the fun they were promised.
