Top Ten Tips for Corporate Events (6-10)

Top Ten Tips For Corporate Events 6-10Recently we spoke on the importance of being able to show your employees that you appreciate their hard work and dedication. At A Gogo Event Rentals we think there is no better way to do this then throwing a company party! To help you with your corporate party planning needs we compiled a list of our Top Ten Tips for Corporate Events. So without further ado here are tips 6-10.

6. Organize AV Equipment
Will you be doing a presentation at your event? If so, check with your location to see if they provide the equipment you will need. If the location doesn’t have the necessary tools, go back through your vendor list to see if you may be able to rent from or ask for recommendations.
7. Find a Buddy (Or a Team)
No man or woman is an island, pick some helpers to assist you in the days leading up to the event to organize, decorate, and get everyone excited for the event. This will take some stress off of you and create a “checks and balances” system to ensure that everything is organized and nothing forgotten.
8. Do a Walk Through
Before your guests arrive, walk through the location with your buddy/team. Make sure all the decorations are up, the AV equipment is where it needs to be, and the staff knows the specific details.
9. Enjoy!!
Enjoy your hard work, you have certainly earned it. Most importantly, give yourself a pat on the back. Enjoy the event, talk with the guests, and make sure to take pictures.
10. After Thoughts
Get all those pictures together for your attendees to remember what a successful and fun event they attended. Make a list of things you thought could be improved for next time. 
 

So there they are, A Gogo Event Rentals’ Top Ten Tips for Corporate Events. We hope you found them useful and if you are in the Greater Cincinnati and Dayton area and you need help with your office party or event give us a call today!

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! 

  1. 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.

  1. 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/]

  1. Choose a Theme

Picking a theme will help you get the details in order: food, decorations, music, etc.

  1. 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.?

  1. 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.

Wedding Backdrop Drape

Wedding Drapes are great for accentuating a wedding party table or covering walls in your venue that you don’t want to be seen, providing a clean look.  Drapes are also extremely popular for covering mobile restrooms for outdoor weddings.
