Set a Schedule
When planning a corporate event there are a lot of variables you will need to consider. One important variable is sticking to the schedule you have created for the event. Whether it is a client appreciation event, an open house to the public, or an exclusive staff party, keeping to your schedule is key. Most guests will have other priorities to get to. Some may have worked all day and are just stopping by to show their support. Others may have families at home that they have to get to. A few might be there for the open bar and it’s their one night out to cut loose. Either way guests attend corporate event with a purpose.
Choose the Perfect Food
There are 3 key points you must consider while choosing your food selection.
Are items easy to eat? Can you mingle and nibble at the same time in a way that does not have BBQ sauce dripping down your clean pressed shirt? Your guests will be grateful if you choose items that are simple and delicious without the chance of a mess on your shirt.
Do you have Gluten Free and Vegan options? These days you can almost count on having one GF/Vegan out of every 10 guests you invite. Having these options will ensure all your guests can try the delicious food you have graciously put out for them.
Do your selections match the theme? Now this is not always the case or necessary, but it will give your guests something to remember. For example if your corporate event is near the water or on a boat would it not make sense to do seafood inspired menu that fits the theme. How about incorporating your company logo colors within the food?
