Tips for Organising Your Corporate Event
Anybody who has planned a corporate event knows just how difficult it can be to make it a success. If you are in charge, there are loads of things to arrange and multiple vendors to contact. With a zillion things to plan, it is indeed a huge responsibility to organize a corporate event smoothly.
If you are about to organize your first Byron Bay corporate event, do not get overwhelmed by all that is to be done. A planned approach with a few simple tips can make your task simpler and more organized.
Understand your Goals
Before you plunge into planning, understand the specific goal as to why the event is required. It maybe to launch a new product, to honour specific employees, or reach out to potential customers, announcing a new company policy and so on.
Deciding on what you want to accomplish makes it easier to organize the specifics later on.
Set a Date
Finalizing the date is the next thing to do. You do not want to host your event on a day when similar events are being organized in the vicinity. Also avoid dates for public holidays or festivals when people are busy with family and friends.
Set a date with enough time so that you don’t have to rush through things. Your guests too can plan in advance and set apart time for attendance.
Spread the Buzz
Once the goal is decided and date is set, you must ensure maximum number of people attend your Byron Bay corporate event. If it’s a company event, send out invitation cards or handouts quite early so that your colleagues know when to attend the event.
If it’s for the general public, use the social media and also advertise in the print media to spread the word among the public.
Decide on your Budget
The next big thing is planning the budget. Advertising will take up a part of your spending but the primary expenses will be on venue bookings, decor, catering (if it’s a whole day event) and so on.
Deciding on the budget early gives you enough scope to adjust individual expenditures and stay within your financial limits.
Book the Venue
While booking a Byron Bay corporate event venue, consider the location and its advantages (or disadvantages). The latest club in town maybe hip but do consider if it is in sync with the purpose of the event. Also take into account communication facilities, parking space and other services that the venue will provide.
