Five tips to plan a successful corporate event

Life is too short to waste precious time on boring events!

In an increasingly digital world, it is very rare for people to meet without a screen between them! LinkedIn messages, Facebook status updates or tweets- nothing can replace the genuine connections made through in-person communication. Corporate events strengthen bonds with current clients and partners, and attract future ones. It is a great platform for people to relate in a personal way. They have endless possibilities to grow your business, enhance your network, and make your presence known in the industry. As a result, hosting corporate events is one of the most effective channels for achieving business goals.

There are many aspects to consider while planning a corporate event, from determining your objective in conducting this event to finding the right location and determining menu selections to agenda constraints and giveaways or no giveaways. Here are 5 tips on how to plan a successful event that your attendees won't forget so soon.

1. Identify the purpose of your event

The first thing that you need to address is ‘Why are you hosting this event?’ It could be anything from a target fundraising goal, to create an impression on your clients, or simply to appreciate the hard work of your employees. Once you have established the purpose it becomes easy to plan out the rest of the event.

2. Select an appropriate venue

The venue you select sets the tone for your entire event. Make sure the location is convenient with a vibrant atmosphere so attendees feel comfortable and willing to make the commute.

5. Promote your event

No one will show up if people don't know about your event. This makes it imperative to find creative ways to spread the word. For a small event with a limited guest list, you can send out direct invitations, but for larger events make use of social media to draw attention. Harness the influence of your speakers too to attract guests.
