Organizing A Corporate Event

If you have been given the task of organizing a corporate event for your office, you might be in for a tricky ride if you are not a professional event planner or at the very least if you do not already have event planning experience. The perfect corporate event takes a lot of meticulous planning right down to the perfect food and the perfect atmosphere. However the type of venue you choose will depend on the type of event you are hosting. As an example, the health and wellness coaching, you will need to choose a high end venue that will cost your company an arm and a leg, however if the event you are planning is an office for the staff of your office alone, then you are at liberty to choose a slightly less grand, less expensive venue that can still provide you with excellent service of course.

Make a checklist

One of the first things you will need to do is to make a checklist of all the things that you need to do from booking the venue to booking an excellent event MC who can keep your event alive from beginning to end. You will need to have a team to help you with the event planning because organizing a large corporate event can be a lot of work. You and your team will need to come up with a good concept for your event. You will need to decide, depending on the budget that you have been given by your company whether you are going to have a buffet, a sit down dinner or a cocktail party.

If you are having an internal event without any outside guests present, you could even ask one of your own office staff to play event MC for the night giving your staff member a chance to shine and also saving up money from your budget to spend on other aspects of the night.

Create a budget

You will need to make a list of all the things that you need for your event and work it our according to the finances you have been given. Allocate money to each aspect of the event to make certain you have enough of money for the whole event with a little money to spare for any emergencies that may occur. The type of event that you have will depend entirely on the number of people that will be present for the night because with a bigger crowd it will be difficult for you to have any interactive entertainment.
