ELEVATE MY EVENT

What are some of the things I can do to make my event cooler?

1) Personalization

Personalise your event

A little personalization goes a long way in not only making your event special, but also makes the attendees feel special and appreciated.

One way you can include an element of personalization is through your companies very own merchandise. This is a great finishing touch for internal company events such as yearly Town Hall events and company sports events.

Appreciation is a great way to value your work-related relationships. A simple 'thank you' helps but as its a common and courteous phrase to say, it can be overused and the meaning diminishes. People will end up saying it for the sake of saying it.

One way you can go beyond the conventional means of a "thank you" of your event is by offering awards. Awards can be done both for internal events and external ones involving other parties and guests aside from your co-workers.

For internal and less formal events, you can categorize awards in a casual manner with fun accolades where you can reward your team with printed certificates and other goodies.

For more formal events involving clients, partners and other external business parties awards of appreciation can be in the form of engraved trophies or plaques. Companies often value such awards as it adds credibility to their brand, product and service.

3) Interactive elements

Interactive elements

Events can sometimes be lengthy and audiences naturally don't have long attention spans to sit through a few hours of endless speeches by so and so. Putting an end to event boredom will make your itinerary look more appealing for your invitees to attend.

Interactive elements such as lucky draws, activities that encourage creativity like batik painting and even fitness activities like zumba and yoga can be incorporated into your events' itinerary.

 4) Go beyond catering

Popcorn

Food is a must when it comes to events. But if you want to spice things up in addition to having the usual catering, you can do so by having little snack stations. 

You can incorporate interactive elements in them like allowing your guest to make their own cotton candy by having a cotton candy machine. 

Customization is also possible when it comes to food. You can let your guest create their own food on the spot, so each guest would their very own dish.

Other ways to add a special touch to food is by having ice cream and popcorn machines.
