With the help of McVeigh Global Meetings and Events, your next corporate event or corporate meeting is sure to be out of this world. However, guests can be picky, and most of them want to attend an event they can brag about to their friends and peers. To truly make your next event stand out from the crowd, consider the following tips to make it go from good to great. 1. Change and challenges are OK Many aspects of event planning are constantly evolving, including everything from technology to overall trends. These days there are many iPhone and Android apps that address many facets of event planning, and can really streamline the process, while many event guests prefer to see menus comprised of organic, locally grown fare. Stay on top of these changes and you’ll host a one-of-a-kind event every time. Planning and hosting a corporate event also comes with its fair share of challenges. Rather than shy away from adversity, take these challenges head on and learn and grow from your experience. Over time, these learning experiences will help refine your future events. 2. Get out of your comfort zone There are some things you’re uncomfortable with, and that’s fine, but to truly throw a great event, you need to step outside your comfort zone. The more ideas you’re open to, the more unique your event will feel. Listen to the thoughts of industry professionals and your internal team – perhaps during a brainstorming session. Concepts you might not like right away may just need some time to marinate, and you could wake up tomorrow morning with an idea for the next big thing in event planning. 3. Share your vision and goals Embracing the ideas of others is guaranteed to take your event to the next level, but early on in the planning process you should establish your vision and goals so everyone is working towards a common objective. The last thing you want is half your team on the wrong page of your playbook, only to sort it all out at the last minute. Watching everything flow towards your vision is a wonderful feeling!
