Host An Event for the Sea-Level Executives
Do you need more reasons to throw a fabulous company event on the water? What about the chance to enjoy the spectacular views, gourmet food, attentive waitstaff and limitless music options? Ok. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves. Before you choose a venue, ask yourself some essential preplanning questions. Now, get ready to wow your attendees!
What’s the Big Idea?
There are a boatload of fun party themes that you can choose from such as luau, disco fever, roaring 20s, casino and more. If a theme isn’t in the cards, find the right tone for the event: casual, fancy or a mix of both. Determining the big idea will help you when selecting all the other components of a party such as DJs, cocktail menus, food options and decor.
Huge Bash? Intimate Affair?
Start with thinking about the strategy for the event. Are you getting people from different departments in the company together to mingle? Is your department celebrating a big success? Is this a company summer event? Get all the details and go from there; it will help you choose the perfect venue.
How About a Date?
Make sure that the date for the event doesn’t fall either on or right before/after a major holiday. You’ll get low attendance if you aren’t careful about timing. You may also want to send around a questionnaire to colleagues to get an idea of the best time for a summer shindig—answer should be “Always and Anytime.”
The Venue and You
Think of the venue as a beautiful picture frame holding together your lovely company get-together. You want to find a spot that delivers the “wow factor” among your colleagues and be a topic around the office cooler for months to come. Look at venues that can comfortably fit everyone in your party. If spouses and partners are included, consider the fact that people will probably show up with out RSVP’ing. It’s better to go a little big than too small.
