Corporate events are back! Problem is, you need to organize a corporate event for your business in 2023, but you don’t know where to start. It makes sense! There’s a lot to plan and consider when thinking about pulling off the perfect event, and if you’re not a professional planner, it can be a bit overwhelming!
If you’re ready to get started on mapping out your 2023 corporate event at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, here are a few tips to help you on your journey.
The first thing you need to know when planning your corporate event is your total budget. Remember to factor in everything from the venue to guest speakers, presentation materials, corporate gifts, decorations, and even travel expenses for attendees if applicable.
Don’t let pride get in the way of a spectacular event! Don’t be afraid to ask for help if planning the event on your own. There are many resources available to plan parties, such as private party planners and even assistance at your venue. You can also recruit coworkers to assist you in handling some of the details so you don’t have as much on your plate!
Who is attending your event? A guest speaker? Employees? Business contacts from other companies? Figure out who will attend your event so you can determine what is needed for food and beverages, venue square footage, promotional materials, and the like.
Your venue can make or break your event. If you lack the necessary space or your venue doesn’t have the resources you need to host your event, such as audio visual equipment, tables and chairs, and adequate restroom facilities, you could have a lot of problems setting up your event and accommodating everyone.
The menu at your special event is also another important feature. You want your guests to stay engaged, and we all know how hard it is to focus on an empty stomach. You’ll want to come up with food that satisfies everyone, and be aware of the potential dietary restrictions of your guests. Plan on vegetarian options as well as possibly Kosher foods, and allergy free options as well.
Furthermore, you’ll want to come up with something inventive, so your guests are excited to try the cuisine. Do you want to serve alcoholic beverages? That’s another option you may want to consider, as well as snacks. If you’re hosting an all day corporate event, you may want to consider offering both breakfast and lunch as well as snacks, and then providing adequate breaks for your guests to enjoy these meals separate from any presentations that you may be hosting.
