Corporate events should be all about having fun with your colleagues and collaborators. You need to showcase fun corporate event ideas that will allow your team to relax and build stronger relationships. Remember that your event is also a way of saying “thank you” to your team for their hard work. And no, you don’t need to wait for the annual Christmas party to start brainstorming about ideas for entertaining corporate event. We would like to give you a few ideas that can cover your planning for the whole year.
Interactive food and drink stations
Imagine the delight attendees will feel as they discover multiple interactive food and beverage stations dotted throughout your event. From a customizable champagne cocktail bar to a live stir-fry station to even a donut wall, there’s plenty of creative ways to feed your attendees and wow them at the same time.
A corporate comedian keeps the language clean and the topics business-related, poking fun at the many facets of working life that border on the ridiculous. Look out specifically for someone who specializes in corporate gigs, though, to make sure your comedian doesn’t cross the line into the offensive.
Like magic, the circus arts have undergone an image overhaul, too, thanks to acts like Cirque du Soleil, which have elevated the art form to an immersive experience. Add some of that mystique to your own event by hiring contortionists, acrobats, and aerial performers.
Impersonators are a fun element that can be added to just about every type of corporate event from a dinner to a massive conference. This works exceptionally well when paired with the theme or event location.
Immersing your guest in a safari, might not require as much travel as you think. For instance, if you’re hosting an event in Florida, then Disney’s Animal Kingdom is a great possible location to get in touch with nature. A safari of sorts can also happen with the help of local zoos or animal trainers. The more practical version of this might involve bringing in animals to your event for your guests to interact with.
Friendly competition can liven any corporate event up. Relay races, scavenger hunts, photo competitions, and trivia are all options for bringing in a little competition. One great example of this is Adidas’ Snapchat Scavenger Hunt. In 2016 Adidas created a scavenger hunt around New York City and LA for fans to learn more about their NMD sneakers and a chance to win concert tickets. They used a mix of street signs, a street team and snapchat hemofilter to find and unlock new locations and prizes. To encourage engagement and entice people to play make sure the prize at the end is really worth the effort.
Social photo booths
People have enjoyed taking photo booth selfies since 1925 and that hasn’t changed in the past 93 years. What has changed? The technology that powers them. Today’s social photo booths make it easy for people to take stills, videos, or GIFs, and share the images straight to their social media accounts. This booth allows attendees to get an updated headshot right on the spot.
