Top 3 tips for Corporate Event Dressing

Whether you are hosting a large corporate event, a formal reception, a product launch, or a big office party then dressing the venue is all part of the experience. It needs to be appropriate for the occasion, set the right tone, create a great impact and showcase the event to its best effect. Here are our top 3 tips for making it an event to remember:

Designing to the space – However large your event space you need to design it for the space that you have available. It’s great to use large props if you’ve got the room for them but if space is of a premium then less is more. The last thing you want is to reduce space for your guests so that they all appear to be crammed in. You need to consider the traffic-flow of your venue and make sure that the props you use don’t over power or become a problem. With a bit of thought you can still make a dramatic visual impact and create a great first impression with your guests.

Adding a bit of drama – Many corporate events require audio visual production and this gives you a fantastic opportunity to add more drama to your event. Vibrant on-screen visuals and corporate messaging on the big screen can really add a sense of excitement to the event. Skilful use of plasma screens and projection can bring an event to life and create a strong sense of anticipation.

Create some theatre – Silk drapes, themed settings, coloured LED lighting, beautifully dressed dining tables, stunning centrepieces and dramatically draped entrance doorways will create a real sense of theatre to your corporate event and get people talking. Adding a sense of theatre will make your event more memorable and create the ambience that all corporate events need.

A venue needs to be dressed appropriately for the event and it can be as lavish or subtle as you want it to be. For more advice about the best way to dress your corporate event then please contact us now.

Picking the Perfect Wedding Venue: Three Questions to Ask

Finding the right venue for your wedding can be a little daunting. You want to find the perfect place to get married but where do you begin? Here! Answer the following three questions today and start planning your big day.

Where to Tie the Knot?

Perhaps you’re dreaming of a traditional wedding in the English countryside but your fiancé has his heart set on Vegas. Choosing a venue for the big day can be tricky. The most important thing to remember is wherever you choose should make you both happy. Another consideration is family and friends – how easy is it for your loved ones to get to the venue? Could they all afford a trip to Bali?

Which Season?

If, like the majority of weddings in the UK, you are planning a wedding in spring or summer, venues with a stunning outdoor space are a great idea. Not only will a picturesque garden or a breathtaking balcony allow your guests to enjoy seasonal sunshine but they also make the perfect space for a group photograph. Alternatively, maybe you’re considering a wedding in winter and dreaming of a winter wonderland? Venues with a dramatic staircase or cosy log fires will look amazing, creating the perfect backdrop to your big day.

What Kind of Venue?

Hotels and country houses are the traditional venue choice for many couples, but there are many other options. From art galleries to restaurants, pubs to boats, choose a venue that matches your personality and style. Consider the venue’s capacity – is it big enough for all your guests or small enough for an intimate atmosphere? And check out their policy on catering – are you happy with in-house caterers or would you prefer something more bespoke? As long as it’s within the all-important budget!
