A corporate event is so much more than just a meeting! Corporate events are often held to launch a product /service, motivate the sales force, or communicate a new company strategy.
Types of corporate events
It could be an exhibition, conference, team building session, or even a party. The type of it depends on the scale of it based on the number of attendees. If the number of attendees does not exceed 100, you may call it a micro event.
Things will be so much easier if you have figures from a past budget. But, if it’s the first time that this event is getting planned, you may need to put some extra effort into calling for quotations and planning everything much in advance.
Picking the venue
Pick the venue of the event based on your objectives and the size of the gathering. Hotel chains such as Aitken Spence Hotels own some of the best event venues in Sri Lanka that can delight all sorts of attendees.
Other things to note
When planning a corporate event, focus on the event marketing (if applicable) and also the entertainment options. You can’t invite an attendee and just let him get bored at your event.
