Are you tired of the same old corporate events year after year? You're not alone! We love helping our clients design and customize unique events that deviate from the norm to create interesting and memorable experiences for their guests. It’s 2023—wouldn’t you say it’s time to shake things up and try something new? We think so! So go ahead and lift the lid because we’re here to offer you five ways to customize your corporate event on a silver platter!
Hybrid events: With the rise of virtual events during the pandemic, hybrid events (a mix of in-person and virtual attendees) are likely to continue to be popular this year. This probably doesn't surprise you, but it's important to remember that hybrid events equal accessible events! They also allow companies to reach a larger audience and provide flexibility for attendees who can't attend in-person. Plus, sometimes people just want to be business on the top, pajamas on the bottom and at this point, haven’t we all been there?
Sustainable events: With increased awareness about environmental issues, corporate events that customize their event needs to incorporate sustainability are likely to be seen as #winning. Customization could include using eco-friendly materials like seed paper, reducing waste, and offsetting carbon emissions. Let’s get creative! Mother Earth is worth it.
Wellness events: Companies are increasingly focusing on employee wellness, so events that promote physical and mental health could be perfect for your organization. This could include wellness workshops, fitness classes, and mindfulness sessions. Say it with me, “OMMMM.”
Gaming events: Gaming has become a popular form of entertainment for people of all ages, so corporate events that incorporate gaming elements could be a hit. This could include interactive games, virtual reality experiences, and e-sports tournaments. I don’t know about you, but there’s something particularly appealing to us about tossing on a VR headset and entering a tropical jungle to fight off demon dragonflies to forget that we’re actually in the middle of a concrete jungle.
Food and beverage focused events: Food and beverage events have always been popular, but this year, companies could focus on customizing their event by creating unique culinary experiences! This could include interactive cooking classes, food and wine pairings, mixology demonstrations, and locally-sourced menus. Yum!
Remember, the key to a successful corporate event is to make it relevant and engaging for your audience and to incorporate your company's values and objectives! If that seems like a lot of work - you’re right, it is—which is why we’re here for you! Buzz into our inbox if you’re looking for help executing an awesome event for your organization!
