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.
