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.
