How To Inject The Fun Factor Into Your Next Corporate Event.
This can be a tricky balance to strike, especially when the announcement or primary purpose of the event falls into the boring category! However, there are tips and tricks you can employ to inject the fun factor into your next corporate event. Read on to find out more.
1. Host it outdoors
There’s no better way to make your guests feel energised and motivated than to incorporate nature into your next corporate event. Why not host your function outdoors? Hiring a marquee is a great way that you can be outdoors, whilst still being protected from the elements. Even though it’s summer, guests should have shade and shelter. As well as this, a marquee provides a classy, timeless look that cordons off the area in a stylish way.
2. Incorporate activities
Nothing gets the blood pumping more than a bit of activity! Whether you want to hire a jumping castle, rides or obstacle courses, there is a huge catalogue to browse from for modern day corporate events. If you don’t want to get active, you can hire an entertainer or employ ‘getting to know you’ games, depending on the style of event you are organising.
3. Ensure there is plenty of water and food
A day full of activity and laughter is enough to make anyone hungry and thirsty. To avoid bad moods and exhaustion, make sure you provide plenty of water and food to keep your guests satisfied and hydrated throughout the day. If you want to spice things up a little, try themed snacks. For example, you could offer carnivals style snacks, such as popcorn and fairy floss.
4. Consider the demographic of your guests
While some of us love an excuse to throw on some shorts and enjoy a game of sport or attempt to learn a new skill, not all your staff will be as keen to get involved in something so active.
However, there is an activity for everyone. The key is to find something that is suitable for the majority of your guests. For the active and agile, there are obstacle courses, team sports such as tennis and basketball and rock climbing walls, to name a few. For those less inclined to exert themselves, think about activities like golf and arcade games that will get even the least active members in your team participating.
Next time you’re planning a corporate event, think about what simple things you can do to make it more fun for everyone. Of course, the serious stuff needs to be emphasised – that’s why you’re there after all. However, it’s no secret that happy and motivated guests will retain the information you pass on more efficiently.
