Every year we attend a wide range of different corporate events. From Holiday Parties, annual celebrations, success marker events, non-profit events and retirement bashes. Each event is always a little different depending on the theme, purpose and the budget. Most times, events aren't always hosted by third party planners (due to the cost).

We commonly see that it is the responsibility of a simple assistant or even intern to help plan a huge company bash. Our research combined with our experience has proven these 6 TIPS to PLANNING A CORPORATE GATHERING.

Think Creatively When it Comes to Entertainment. Only the most entertaining partys have a Photo Booth. The local companies/freelance photographers usually carry a lower price tag, and many times, up-and-coming bands are really just interested in the experience.



Save Money with Food Styles. Family-style salads instead of individual ones, or provide a grab-and-go dessert to save money on food costs. Sending guests home with a dessert is not only a more economical way to go, it also gives you the opportunity to send guests home with a memento and/or special message.


Recognize Employee Spouses. In addition to congratulating your employees, honor his or her spouse as well. They’re a team, and any sacrifices your employee has had to make at the office, his or her spouse has felt those as well. That goes for the “wins” too!

Simple but Huge. Nametags, at the appropriate events, can be paired with fun personal information to serve as conversation starters.


Make your Boss Look Good. Ask those higher ups and Senior Management members to greet guests and mingle on a rotating schedule so that guests feel important.


Maximize Your Invitation. Sending an E-Vite? Tuesday, around at 10:00am, is best for sending an e-vite. Include as much information as you can and always send updates bi-weekly reminding everyone to RSVP.
