Event season is upon us yet again - functions galore and a new outfit for each event!
A great deal of creativity goes into year-end functions; thus making it crucial to have key individuals in place to ensure a picture-perfect event with just the right ambience.
It is imperative to begin your planning with a clear direction and vision of the type of event you have in mind, especially when part of an event-driven industry. Year-end season can be compared to wedding season – everyone is rushing to secure the perfect spot. Many companies plan ahead, ensuring that the venue is booked as much as a year in advance, to avoid disappointment.
It’s all good and well to have an amazing idea. However, what good is an idea if your event budget doesn’t match up to what you envision. After a year of hard work, challenges, successes and various other experiences, the team looks forward to an event where they’re afforded the opportunity to dress up, let loose and enjoy guest status. It’s a time for your team to feel valued!
What better way to create a memorable occasion than to invest in world-class entertainment and hospitality. Employees are a vital part of the business and it is important to create a sense of appreciation felt for the contributions made on a daily basis, ensuring the growth and sustainability of the organisation.
With the above being said, the impact of various quirky trends has taken over within the eventing sphere; the usual live entertainment seems to have taken a bit of a backseat. Focus has shifted to customised, experiential eventing which engages the guest in an experience from the moment they walk through the door.
Why scratch your head trying to come up with the perfect guest artist? You can book an amazing DJ, hand each guest a set of wireless earphones on arrival and have your guests experience the music through their headphones.
