Plan A Successful Corporate Event

“If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable.” Lucius Annaeus Seneca

The first step to a successful corporate event is to determine the outcome you desire. Do you want to build your clientele, build employee morale, show appreciation to your clients or team, or host a retreat to get your team thinking outside the box? Once you know your outcome, it is time to start planning how to achieve it. Our professional staff has developed the following steps to help you plan a successful event.

 

Choose an appropriate location

Book a venue that is located in a convenient area with adequate parking and appropriate room sizes. You want your audience to arrive calm and ready to receive your message, not frazzled and frustrated.

Choose a venue that can accommodate your technical or logistical requirements. Not all facilities can meet every need, but choose one that is willing to work with other vendors to make sure you have what you need to reach your outcomes.

Whatever the outcome you seek, Hereford House located in Andover has the facilities to get you there. Our incredible banquet facilities fit any size event, from small meetings to 300-seat conferences. With over 300 stalls and valet service available, parking will never be an issue. We also provide a variety of Audio/Visual services and will coordinate with local vendors to accommodate any special requests.

 

Prioritize your spending

Every event has a budget and knowing where you can save and where you need to invest the most is essential. It is important to know what your desired outcome is so that you can put your money in the items that will help you achieve it.

 While decorating your space is important and will enhance your event, rarely will you want to spend a large amount of money on this. If your goal is to show appreciation, then you don’t want to skimp on gifts and entertainment. If your goal is to train or promote a new product then you will want to focus on the presenter and A/V.

Additionally, you don’t want to skimp on food or beverages. You want to treat your audience like they are honored guests - someone you value and respect.

Spread the word

No matter how much you plan for an event, or how great it is, it will not be a success if no one attends. Make sure you are getting the word out about your event using email, social media and/or print.
