Parties sound so great. The whole idea of being in a place, surrounded by people you love, just standing, laughing, enjoying yourself. But this is all when you are invited to someone else’s party. What it you are planning to throw a party. Sounds scary, right? So much of work, so much of pressure. What to do and how to do it, no clue. Imagine how severe the situation gets when you have to plan a corporate event. The work pressure plus the need to do the things by keeping in mind the clients and your professional buddies.
The reasons behind the corporate event can be many and whatever they are, you have to work in a great manner. There are various things that you have to do so here are the six main things to focus on to take off some stress from you.
This is not only for planning the event, it is when you plan to do anything. These are the basic questions that you need to answer. What, where, who, why and how. So even when you are planning the corporate event, you have to do the same while answering those questions.
Mark it conveniently
Since this is a corporate event, you need to be extra sure about the dates. Unlike, planning for personal parties, you have to actually pay attention to the schedule of the people you are organizing the event for. It has to be kept on a convenient day, making sure that no ones work is disturbed. Now comes the time for planning, and everyone needs to start really quick to plan that party/event. Delay in preparations can cost you too much.
Whether the gathering is going to be small or is it going to be large, you really have to pay attention to that. The location would be decided on the basis of the number of people that are going to be invited to the event. Once you know the number, you need to focus on the people that are going to attend the event and then choose a place that is convenient for the majority of people.
That is a very important part of the planning, informing people on time about the event so that they can free themselves accordingly. Last moment invites will not only get you less responses but would also make you look very unprofessional.
Every event has a reason behind it. Is it a celebration for something? Is it for a new project or is it for any other reason, make sure your invite mentions it. If there is an announcement to be made, at least have a hint of it in the invite. This way people would know where they are headed to.
You know the number of guests, you have received the RSVPs, so you can now work accordingly. Decide how you are going to arrange the things at the party. The food, the drinks
