Corporate Event Trends

Casey Todd

Spring and summer are great times to host offsite corporate events.  Add a little something extra to your company’s event by checking out a few of the latest corporate event trends.

Location-  Cultural aspects of meeting locations is becoming more important to guests who are used to having each event in a standard office or hotel banquet room.  Hosting an offsite event or outing can be a refreshing change!

Flexible meeting spaces- Flexibility during onsite events is important for meeting planners. The best venues offer conveniences such as valet parking, moveable furniture, and various equipment that make the spaces more useful and attractive.

Unique Food and Beverage Choices- Boxed lunches are out and guests are looking for more options for meal and snack breaks. It’s not just a variety of meal options that keep attendees happy but rather an assortment of fresh and healthy choices for those with dietary restrictions (such as allergies, gluten free, and vegan).

For happy hour events, creating a personalized touch is a nice way to delight guests.  Offer up local brews by teaming up with a local brewery (Yazoo) or distillery (Whisper Creek Tennessee Sipping Cream or Pennington’s Strawberry Rye) to add a regional touch to beverages for guests to enjoy.  Another great twist for guests would be to provide a signature corporate cocktail specific to the company or event, making it one of a kind.

Making your event unique and comfortable is important so attendees enjoy themselves and want to come back.

6 Tips for Hiring a Caterer

Casey Todd

Selecting the right caterer is an important part of event planning.  There are a few things you should consider before sitting down with potential caterers:

Overall & per person budget- you will save yourself a lot of time and aggravation if you have both your overall event budget and food budget mapped out.  

Guest Count- knowing the # of guests you plan to invite is crucial in generating an accurate estimate of food cost.  The best way to manage your budget is by managing your guest list!

Event style- share the style of décor you plan to use during your event to help guide the creative planning process. Pictures from Pinterest can be especially helpful here. 

Menu design- Share any specific food selections you may prefer. Also, be upfront about dietary restrictions such as allergies or the need for vegetarian, vegan, or gluten free dishes.

Get recommendations and referrals- Experienced and preferred caterers will have no problem providing references so go ahead and ask for them. It will validate your choice to hire.

Additional services- many caterers can help with coordinating other aspects of the event like tables, chairs, table linens, décor, floral, bartenders, etc. Ask the question to streamline your planning process and make the most of the relationship!

Having these area’s mapped out will benefit you by guiding the conversation so you get the most out of your meeting.  You should expect that based on the information you provide your caterer they will be able to recommend the right food choices and certain cuisines based on the event style and budget you have outlined.   Once the planning is done you can sit back, relax and feel good about your amazing food selections!
