The best company events start with a corporate event theme that dictates every detail and ultimately boosts attendance.
Local flavors and tastes are all the fair. For an adults-only event, invite your guests to sample local craft beers and wines (along with great company and cuisine). If alcohol isn’t on the menu, host a seasonal event with treats from local vendors (i.e. farms, restaurants, etc.)
If the corporate event is an anniversary celebration, take guests back in time with a throwback corporate event. Set the stage for a night back in time with all the details—large and small—from the milestone decade. Complete the event theme with a presentation on the big screen that celebrates every accomplishment that makes this over-the-top event possible.
Guests enjoy the gamble of the ultimate casino night. This is the perfect theme for a networking event that leaves guests mingling and enjoying every detail. For a truly interactive and mobile experience, intermix the entertainment, drink, and food stations or separate both areas to provide endless opportunities for networking.
Charitable Community Event
These corporate events are popular among employees and corporate guests. Companies can host a collection of specific items for a local charity or gather employees for a specific endeavor (i.e. painting, reading to kids, etc.) The charitable component can also be incorporated into a corporate event, such as asking guests to bring perishable foods or books for a charity collection. Either way, guest comfort should be considered during event planning with a tent (to accommodate for the weather) and food service.
A corporate barbeque can be a completely casual experience or a high-end tasting event. For a more casual flair, host a huge grill that leaves guests in awe and anticipating the experience that is to come. Surpass their expectations with activities, décor, and all the touches of the ultimate corporate event.
Night Under the Stars
This whimsical corporate event theme is deserving of every detail that completes the atmosphere. From the lighting to the dance floor, every detail should be checked off the list. There are many possibilities that come with this theme: dance floor, string lighting, table décor, projection screen, complete menu.
A sports-themed corporate event appeals to the most loyal and casual sports fans. This corporate event idea can be a casual viewing party with a projection screen and the best sports-themed snacks (i.e. popcorn, slushies, etc.) For a larger crowd, rent out a local sports venue or put up a tent adjacent to an outdoor sports field for the ultimate sports party. With the right combination of food and sports-themed activities, this corporate event idea is sure to be a hit with guests.
A carnival-themed event should be an all-encompassing experience under the big top (only the best tent is suitable for this description). This atmosphere can be created with the tent, décor, and entertainment that guests expect of a day at the carnival.
Night at the Movies/Theater
The best part of this corporate event theme is the versatility. A night at the movies theme can translate into an upscale event with grand theater décor or a less formal occasion with details from a favorite movie. The chosen theme dictates every detail: the type of tent, chairs, tables, layout, menu, and décor. (Contact event professionals to help select the right rentals for the theme.)
Trip Around the World
This event theme should feel exactly like the name suggests. An international theme should take guests through the best tastes, décor, and entertainment from a few select corners of the globe. This can be accomplished in a unique venue, such as a museum, or with a tent. For a more focused event theme, choose a country relevant to guests’ interests and incorporate the details that make that area unique.
