Planning a corporate event? Without a doubt, one of the most challenging components of corporate event planning is coming up with creative ideas that will wow everyone in attendance.
Companies hold corporate events for various reasons. Some use corporate events to present key information about a product or service. Others on the other hand use corporate events as a new approach to corporate training or a place to conduct team building exercises in a manner that’s both fun and engaging.
That being said, seasoned event agencies will often take into account the purpose of the corporate event first before getting into the other details. What exactly are you looking to accomplish?
Are you looking to reward the sales team with rest and relaxation? Are you celebrating a merger and would like a corporate event that focuses on connection and building relationships?
Whatever the purpose of the event may be, the right corporate event should meet the objectives you’ve identified and should be done in a manner that’s fun, creative, and engaging. If you want a corporate event that truly stands out, investing in the expertise of an event agency is the best thing you can do.
Once you’ve chosen the best event agency to work with, consider the following creative corporate event ideas that will knock the socks off of everyone in attendance:
It’s safe to assume most people have been to the carnival back when they were kids. If anything, carnivals are often associated with fun, excitement, and good times. Bring back that light, amusing, and fun vibe by lining colourful striped tents offering food and games.
That’s what Google did when they hosted a carnival-themed appreciation event for those people who write quality reviews for Google Map.
For many event organisers, there’s one sure thing that can help bring fun and excitement to any event—inflatables! Case in point: to spice up the annual SGX Bull Charge Charity Run, 6 inflatable obstacles were installed so more people will be enticed to join in on the fun.
To make the event even more memorable, the highly anticipated Festival Village was also opened, complete with a screening of “Ah Boys to Men” at the Marina Bay and a Silent Disco arena. The event not only raised a whopping $2.7 million in charity funds, it also became the ultimate bonding moment for the CEOs and their employees!
If you’re looking to create an intimate ambiance for your attendees, you can never go wrong with a company house. For a few years now, Spotify has been building an interactive Spotify House for South by Southwest (SXSW).
The house is a dream come true for music lovers as it comes equipped with SoulCycles, Playstation Music Arcade, and even performances from top artists. For the company, the experience will not only wow attendees but will also give them an opportunity to interact and appreciate music in a fresh way.
When planning a corporate event, don’t shy away from thinking outside the box and investing in the help of experts. Doing so will not only help ensure you’ll produce a corporate event that’s truly one-of-a-kind, it will also help warrant you’ll have something that’s also fun for you to execute.
