Before sending out your event invites, here some top tips to planning your next corporate event, ensuring things go off without a hitch!

Things to Consider When an End-of-Year Event

  1. Establish your Function Objectives

During the course of your end-of-year function do you plan on raising money, celebrating an achievement, or perhaps hosting an awards ceremony?

It’s vitally important to determine what your objective is before you begin spending money and deciding on your guest list.

Additional objectives of your event should also be to determine your venue, event décor and style and other amenities that may be needed.

  1. Establish a Budget

Establishing how much you have to work with from the beginning will help set up parameters as you plan your event.

Take into account some of the most expensive items which will dig into your budget first, such as venue hire, catering, drinks, service staff and décor.

It’s also important to consider whether your budget suits an all-inclusive venue hire, or booking your location and support services separately.

Explore options thoroughly before committing to a venue or location!

For a cost-effective venue solution for your next outdoor event, Empire Tents offers a range of tents for sale at some of the best rates on the market.

  1. Consider Important Amenities

This is almost as important as selecting your venue, most especially if it’s an outdoor event.

Your guests will need access to restrooms and secure parking facilities.

When choosing the location of your outdoor event, it’s important to consider whether you will have access to these important essentials.

Weather considerations

Yes, hosting an outdoor event is about a change of scenery and unwinding in a beautiful environment.

But make sure you are prepared for those spontaneous summer showers!

Plan appropriately and ensure all your guests are offered some sort of shelter for the worst case scenario.

  1. Plan your facilities

What will you need at your event to ensure your objective is achieved?

Consider basic amenities such as appropriate seating, tables and chairs and stages and podiums for speeches and prize-givings.

Will you need a ramp for handicapped guests and what kind of décor will best tie in with your event’s theme?

Do some research on local, cost-effective vendors who can offer you a one-stop-shop service.

  1. Make food and drink a priority

A number one priority for guests at any event? Food and drink!

Make sure to take into consideration speciality diets and what kind food will be served.

Would your guests prefer snacks, a sit-down meal or a buffet?

Spend some time thinking about what your guests would prefer and what would ultimately be easier and more cost-effective.
