Tips for Planning a Small to Medium Business Event

Tips for Planning a Small to Medium Business Event

Big corporations aren’t the only businesses that need to hold events. If you operate a small to medium-sized business (SMB), how can you make sure that your team building events, seminars, holiday parties, and other private events meet their full potential? Here are a few quick tips to help you meet your event goals and to provide the best live entertainment for your attendees.

  • Understand the event purpose – Other than holiday parties, business events are rarely just to have a good time. Have a good understanding of your goals before you proceed with event planning.
  • Choose the right venue – You need a location that will fit your team (and their family’s if they are invited as well). The purpose of the event will have a big effect on the venue. For example, if you are having a seminar, you want good lighting and acoustics. For a holiday party, you are probably looking for a venue with some kitchen space for your caterer to work in and a dancefloor for when the entertainment starts.
  • Plan a menu – Is the event going to be all day long and require one or more meals? Is it a shorter event in the evening where you can just offer appetizers? If the purpose is recreation rather than all business, will there be a cocktail hour?

Hire the right live entertainment – Whether you are getting folks on the dancefloor or providing evening entertainment at a weekend seminar, choosing the right entertainer is important.
