Corporate Events In The Outer Banks? Careful!
In the Outer Banks, that old adage, ‘Never mix business with pleasure’ is extremely hard to enforce. If you’re in charge of planning a corporate event on the Outer Banks, keep on reading:
The following tips will assist you in your mixing of business and pleasure with enjoyable results.
The first thing you will want to consider in the planning process is the food. Often, the potential success of any corporate party or event is determined by the quality of the food. Duh – the Outer Banks has a plethora of fresh, delicious ingredients to be featured, make use of them!
Alleviate the burden and hire a catering service. When you hire a catering service to cater your corporate event, you allow yourself and your co-workers the opportunity to plan and focus on the many details and the intention of your corporate event. But know how to hire an outer banks caterer with confidence!
Before calling your catering service, consider the mood of your corporate event. Is there a theme? Is your corporate event casual or elegant? Do you need the catering service to assist you with a venue? Here we touch a complicated topic for the beach – the lack of decent convention center.
Many hotels will offer that run-of-the-mill convention room, but you’ll probably have to digest their accommodation prices, room fees, and swallow their catering service. A common solution, depending on the size of your event, is to rent a big house on the beach and have everybody stay there. In a bigger house, you can even run small-setting seminars.
A quality catering service can provide all the amenities such as tables, chairs, and tents, to make your corporate event as successful as possible. You want to ensure that your event is not only enjoyable but also memorable.
Consider the following points:
- What is your event’s intention? Do you want to reveal a new service or product? Perhaps your corporate event is a thank you party for clients and vendors?
- Prepare your guest list and set a date and time. Traditionally, two and a half to three hours is appropriate for a corporate event.
- Design your invitation and request an RSVP.
- Consider hiring a bartender if you plan to serve alcohol. Make certain your bartender is covered for liquor liability insurance.
- Think about your menu options and discuss them with your catering service. Consider your guests that may have special dietary needs.
Plan ahead, remain focused on your intention, enjoy the company of your guests and relax.
