9 Ways to Make Your Corporate Party Stand Out

9 Surprise Elements to Make Your Corporate Party Stand Out

Employees can get sick of attending the same old corporate events, so you need a way to get them excited about attending yours. Make your events stand out and become memorable by adding that one special element that will push them that extra mile.

Here are a few fun ideas that you can incorporate into your next corporate party to make sure people keep talking about it:

Karaoke

Everyone loves a good old fashioned karaoke night. There’s not much that goes into planning a night like this except booking a location that already has a setup or then hiring someone that can come in and set up a screen and projector for your event; a quick and easy way to add some oomph to a dull party.

Casino Night

If you have the time and budget, have a company come in and set up casino tables and send dealers. A casino night is a super memorable way for employees to get together and have an enjoyable night. You can get a Vegas-style party right in your town. You can even hire Vegas-style showgirls for a fun photo op.

Close Up Magic

Hire a magician to perform close up magic in small crowds around the party. Close up magic is a lot more interactive and fun for guests since they don’t just have to sit on a seat and watch. This way, they can still walk around and network without missing out on the experience.

Team Obstacle Course

Who said corporate parties have to be at night? Have a day time event where you can divide up your employees into teams and have them go through an obstacle course. This will be a fun and memorable experience and also a great team-building exercise.

Comedian

There are comedians that specialize incorporate humor, and who doesn’t love to laugh? You can hire a corporate comedian to tell office-related jokes; these jokes will be relatable to your employees and you don’t have to worry about anything non-kosher or inappropriate.

Topic Tables

This is a great way to get employees talking to each other at bigger companies. Post a topic on the top of each table and anyone standing around it has to speak about the topic. People will move to another table after sharing personal or professional stories on the topic. This can be an excellent way to network within a company.

Circus

Circus or other entertainment acts can be a once in a lifetime experience for your corporate event guests. With fire breathers, acrobats and aerialists around, people will be in awe of the entertainment. With an act like this, your event will be one to remember.

Murder Mystery

This is another way to get people at an event talking and mingling. By assigning characters to all the guests, and giving them storylines, they will be forced to break out of their comfort zones and talk to new people in order to solve the mystery.

Immersive Food and Drink Stations

Try setting up a make your own taco station, or assemble your own sundae, or why not a DIY bar where guests can experiment with making cocktails? This would be a fun and interactive element to add to your party that guests are sure to enjoy.

Some of these ideas require a bigger, more open space to pan out. Instead of renting halls or conference rooms in hotels, try booking a hangar to get the space you need for your event. If you are in the Scottsdale, AZ area, you can book a hangar here.

How to Plan 5 Common Corporate Events Successfully

5 Common Corporate Events: Purpose, Budget and Ensuring Their Success

Companies have to host corporate events for a number of reasons; some include appreciation for employees, some for training purposes, some to educate on new launches and some to make important decisions for the company. Either way, the company wants the event to be a success.

It is hard to determine an exact budget or assurance of success because company sizes and environments can vary drastically. It is still better to follow a loose guide to estimate what you will need to do for a successful event. Here are a few simple tips and estimated budgets to help you get started:

Product Launches

Purpose of the Event:

To build awareness and buzz around a new product or service.

Ensuring Success:

Focus on getting exposure for and attention to your new product or service. Make sure to invite media-centric guests, so they can create buzz around your launch; your priority should be to get the word out! Come up with a marketing strategy before the event to make sure the product is the center of attention at the launch.

Holiday Parties

Purpose of the Event:

Celebrate the holidays and build morale.

Ensuring Success:

Holiday parties are for your employees to blow off a little steam. Make sure the event is fun and creative so employees can relax and have a good time. Think of different entertainment that you can provide the attendees to make this more than a mundane company event.

Charity Events

Purpose of the Event:

Raise funds to support a cause.

Ensuring Success:

Your purpose is to raise money, so your event really has to wow people. Make use of all the networking the company and employees have to get a good turnout for the event. Pick a worthy cause and promote it well to ensure a successful fundraising event.

Board Meetings

Purpose of the Event:

To make important decisions that will affect the company and its professional course.

Ensuring Success:

These events are held for the shareholders and higher-ups in a company. Make sure the event is less socializing-focused and make decision-making a priority. Rather than putting out a three-course meal before the meeting that could enable lethargy, time your meeting so you can get the board members at their most alert state.

Team Building Events

Purpose of the Event:

Strengthen relationships and encourage networking within a company.

Ensuring Success:

Make sure the event catches the interests of your employees rather than forcing uninteresting activities on them. By catering to their interests, you will ensure that they will enjoy taking part in the event. You will have a better team, and you won’t be wasting company time and money on an event that was unsuccessful in its goal.
