Tips for hosting memorable corporate events


Corporate events should be memorable occasions. You want your employees to feel appreciated and enjoy their time together as well as bonding and team-building. There are some great ways to set your corporate event above the rest and keep people talking about it for a long time to come.

  1. Luxury Hotels

This is an absolute must. Skimping on accommodation is unacceptable. Luxury hotels show your employees that they are working for a successful company that appreciates their service. It also shows that you will spare no expense when it comes to treating them right.

  1. Private Ground Transportation

No one wants to arrive at a luxury hotel in a bus. Our Chicago private transportation service is a great way to express your appreciation for a job well done. You can have our chauffeurs pick up your employees in anything from a luxury van or mini coach to a motor coach, depending on the size of your group. A limousine is really nice way to splash out is you want to pamper key employees or other persons of interest.

  1. Open Bar

Your event is meaningless if you’re asking your employees to shell out for alcohol. This is an event you planned and are putting on, so it’s to your benefit to pay for an open bar. This will help your employees to relax and get to know each other better. They’ll also appreciate the gift and brag to their friends about what a great company they work for.

  1. Gourmet Food

If your corporate event includes dinner, make sure you are offering gourmet food. Taste can go a long way to make people happy, and unlike the adage says, the way to the heart is through everyone’s stomach. If catering is not an option, then choosing an upscale restaurant with excellent food and a diverse wine menu is a good second choice.

  1. Entertaining Speakers

Even if you’ve gotten everything else right, and your employees feel sufficiently wined and dined, if the actual event is boring, you’ve lost your audience. Find entertaining speakers that really inspire a room, and stay away from anything that people might find cheesy. It’s to your benefit to keep your employees entertained because they will retain the information for a long time to come.

  1. Extracurricular Activities

It’s always a good idea to have some fun activities planned, such as karaoke or attending a comedy club together. A scheduled mixer is also a fun experience because many of your employees may not have met each other, and conversation will strengthen their bonds. A company whose employees are loyal and feel dedicated to their fellows is always a successful one.
