Congratulations! You're in charge of planning a large corporate event. But where do you start? Start at the beginning, and work your way from there.

If you need motivation and inspiration, here are some tips for planning a large corporate event at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC.

Define Your Objectives

The first step in planning your event is answering the 'why' of it all. Why are you planning this event? Is it for networking? A new product launch? Team building? There are myriad reasons for hosting a corporate event, and once you know yours, you can start planning!

Plan Your Budget

You'll likely need an event budget unless you have unlimited funds for your event. Things to consider when planning your budget include the venue, entertainment or guest speaker fees, decorations, promotional materials, photography and videography, and more. Once you know your budget, you can determine how much money you can allocate to each vendor.

Recruit Help

Planning a large-scale event shouldn't be done alone. That's why it's essential to assemble a team to help you locate vendors, invite guests, and do any other planning to help your event go off without a hitch.

Book The Venue

Now that you've got some of your ducks in a row, it's time to book your space at Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC. We can accommodate large parties or small parties, and our staff offers impeccable service from start to finish.

Draft A Timeline

A timeline is essential to running a smooth event. This will help everyone know their assigned roles and which events will occur when. It will also let special guests know when they're needed and help your venue coordinate things like meals, snacks, and audio-visual elements.

Plan The Menu

At Tribeca Rooftop + 360° in NYC, we have our in-house catering team ready to prepare a variety of cuisine for your corporate event. Meet with our planners for inspiration, or come equipped with your special requests. Be sure to remember things like dietary restrictions, snacks, and whether or not you'd like to serve alcohol at our fully-stocked bar.

Promote The Event

Now it's time to start promoting your event. Use your traditional marketing channels if you're targeting that audience, or create invitations to share with a specific audience. Great places to market your event include social media, website, email, and industry publications.

Manage RSVPs

Now that you've announced your event, RSVPs will begin rolling in. Create a system to track who will be attending, who has paid their fees to participate if applicable, and to keep your registered guests informed of any updates or changes.

Assess Your Success

Once your event is complete, it's time to step back and celebrate your success! But remember to analyze what went wrong and right so that you can change future events. Be sure to thank participants for attending, including special guest speakers or entertainers, sponsors, and your team!
