Want to rally the troops and boost company morale? Corporate events are a great way to keep your employees happy, but how do you keep the pocketbook happy at the same time? A Gogo Rentals is here to help! We’ve compiled our Top Ten List to help make your life as the party planner a little easier. In this weeks blog we will explore tips 1-5. Be sure to check back next week for tips 6-10!
- Pick Your Purpose
What is the reason for your event? Are you celebrating a holiday, anniversary, product launch, or just fostering a good work environment? When you know what the purpose for your event, it can help you form the rest of this list. Start here and the rest of our list will come easier.
- Set Your Budget (And Stick to It!)
Obviously you have an idea of what you’re allowed to spend but sitting down and hashing out a budget will also help you organize everything you need to pull off the best event EVER. Unsure of how many people can fit at a table, whether you need linens, backdrops, and draping?
A Gogo Rentals wants to make your life a little easier, we have packages to lay out exactly what you need based on the number of guests. [link to: http://agogorentals.com/packages/]
- Choose a Theme
Picking a theme will help you get the details in order: food, decorations, music, etc.
- Hire the Vendors
You know your purpose, you have your budget, and you picked your theme…what’s next? Get at it and start hiring vendors that are going to help you make this event happen. Don’t be afraid to negotiate the prices and STAY IN YOUR BUDGET! Picking the event location first should help with the rest; we are a bit partial to outdoor events, but that is up to you to decide what’s best for your company event. Once you have a location, figure out what you need for decorations, will you need to hire a caterer, etc.?
- Send Invitations
Once you know where the event will be held, send out invitations to the people you decided needed to be included in step one of your purpose. We love those great save the date magnets that cover our fridge, consider sending out email save the dates and then formal invitations (that match your theme of course) when it comes closer to the event date.
