Whether this is your first or hundredth event, for those hosting it, it is the most important ever. You need to know that venue, entertainment, catering and decorations have all gone to plan and that these tasks must, not just take place, but be done to the highest standards possible. Once complete, the result should be unforgettable. But what is unforgettable? Our meeting planning tips seem simple but are sometimes overlooked.
How to Pull Off an Unforgettable Event
The fact is that, as an event planner, you must get everything right, every time. People often don’t remember things that just worked, but they sure as hell remember the events where things didn’t work. So get this right. Event planners seek to create an unforgettable event through hard work, in depth planning and following a number of simple rules. We can’t help you with the first two of these aspects, but this post will give you some simple ideas, which, when followed, will help to create an event that no one forgets.
Tastes So Good, You’ll Never Forget
Event planners create a truly unforgettable food experience by thinking outside of the box. Menus are planned, consulted upon and tested but chefs are allowed enough freedom to procure locally sourced, delicious produce and go for food to fit the season. Not just any chefs will do, a good event planner should know which chefs are right to handle specific challenges; be they foreign, exotic or simply the best possible ingredients. They also consider catering an experience, with novel ideas such as interactive food stations, where guests can create their own dishes.
Destinations That Are Impossible to Forget
The destination plays a massive role in the overall impact of an event. A good event planner can take all factors and needs into consideration and combine this with an in depth knowledge of what venues are really like, to suggest the correct location that will create the desired wow factor and still be practical. They must be in-range, not victim to too much traffic and importantly be novel enough to be remembered but not so far out of lane, they are too much style and not enough substance. The Denver area has so many different and unique venues, you’re sure to find one to remember.
Activities designed to bond a team into an effective and productive force are never easy, nor do they have a template. Unforgettable does not have to mean extreme, great attention to detail and really constructive team building exercises may be better than a day in a theme park – where no one speaks to each other.
A well-organized and simple office party can be a first-rate stress buster. The opportunity to get together and blow off steam, with great food, entertainment and in the right setting, can allow all team members the space and impulse they need to refresh themselves and bond together.
