The majority of your company employees probably work at least 40 hours per week, if not more. Why would they remain there after business hours? Most likely, you don’t believe they would either. That’s one reason, but it’s not the only one, why choosing the right location is essential to a successful corporate event.
The following are reasons to book a space for your upcoming event, whether it is a conference, networking event, charity ball, or other type of business gathering:
We all make an effort to maintain a distraction-free work environment, but let’s face it, most offices aren’t quiet. The typical office is far from relaxing, with phones ringing and machinery whirling. Not to mention that an office will be associated with work, which can be distracting for both clients and employees.
Who wants to reflect on work while not at work? A location offers a lively setting where attendees can simply take a break. Giving people that chance won’t just increase the success of your corporate event. Your staff will return to work feeling refreshed and with higher spirits. Increased productivity results from this.
Access Additional Amenities
Your office might have a lot of distractions, but it probably lacks the essential amenities for any occasion. You might manage with a boardroom and some catering depending on the kind of corporate event you’re hosting, but that won’t always work.
Even when it does, many locations provide extras like presentation equipment that could elevate your event. A venue will enhance the aesthetics of your event and offer you everything you require for a successful opening.
The Ideal Venue Size
Do you have enough room in your office for everyone to spread out, sit down, eat, and carry out all the unquestionably amazing things you have planned? The answer is probably no, unless your event is very small or your office is very big.
Almost any size corporate event can be accommodated at a venue. Depending on the particulars of your event, you can reserve anything from a tiny 200 square foot room for a private meeting to a huge auditorium with performance stages for 500 or more guests.
Impress Your Clients
Consider all the business conferences you’ve ever attended as a prospective client. Which ones most impressed you? The events that came to mind were probably organized and well-planned, if you’re like most people. The event was probably held at a venue, so you could probably tell that your host went above and beyond to make it successful and memorable. Why?
Venues are made to provide the ideal setting for the purpose for which they are used. It will certainly impress, whether it’s a lavish gala with expansive gardens and moonlit balconies or a polished, spotless, upscale conference room with the newest technology.
Your own workers are another group of people you can impress by going all out for your upcoming business event. The satisfying knowledge that they work for a company that is invested in and appreciates everything they do will boost their morale even more than the boost they receive from a break from work.
Only one in three workers say they feel sufficiently recognized at work, and those who don’t are twice as likely to leave. You can increase employee engagement by doing something special for them, which will boost productivity while decreasing turnover.
