Corporate events can either be a critical step in reaching company goals or a monumental stumbling block that will stunt your future growth. If you want your corporate event to be the former, there are a few key steps you need to follow to ensure that your event is a success.
- Make Goals: Planning an event without clear goals in mind can be confusing and costly. Set SMART goals to get your event on the right track. Whether you want to seamlessly blend to teams or improve your sales funnel, make sure to make specific, measurable, attainable, and realistic goals that are time-bound. By setting goals specifically for the event, you will see that you plan activities, meetings, and meals that support your endgame.
- Look at the Numbers: Budget, guest list size, time spent at the event, and amount of time you have to plan the event are all numbers you need to have written down. By having numbers and sticking to them, you will be able to plan an event that meets your criteria and is both controlled and successful.
- Plan Appropriate Activities: If the goal of your event is team building, keep group sizes small and plan activities that will bring your team together. If you want to further an initiative, have presenters that know the vision and can get people excited about it. Whatever your goal for the event, plan activities that further the mission.
- Pick the Venue: Having a great venue is key to making your event work. Picking one that has the right amount of space, a great vibe, and fantastic vendor partnerships is a great way to make your guests feel excited. If you want the best venue in Minneapolis, check out Watson Block!
