Preserving the Atmosphere at a Business Function
When it comes to planning a work event, there are a few important things to consider beforehand.
Most of the early stage considerations will be practical steps, and then building around those will include commercial elements. By covering items such as those on the list below, you’ll find yourself at a good starting point for running important functions a little smoother.
Have proper lighting
Lighting is an important concern due to its all-encompassing nature. Not only will this highlight your company activities in a metaphorical sense, but also having good lighting at any event is important for health and safety regulations. Potential new clients and supporters won’t feel cosy in a darkened room, so by using the best creative medium of all you’re more likely to entice new custom in.
When hosting a function in an outside area such as a tent, it’s better to use windowed marquees to let in as much natural light as possible. Similarly, if you’re hosting in a building, keep any blinds up. Use artificial light to help accent this, with creative placements allowing an extra element of creativity to make the event look even better on brochures. If you’re planning to show off products or merchandise, spotlights over these items will highlight their importance.
Check the temperature
Temperature not only affects how hot or cold the air is, but how stuffy it is due to the humidity. So when hiring external venues such as a marquee, the weather is an important factor. A cheap way to improve the atmosphere of your function is via temperature control rental. We think of boiler systems and heating appliances in terms of irremovable devices, yet renting out portable heaters and air conditioning systems can subvert this notion.
You can do away with the sunshine stipulation by increasing or decreasing the temperature manually. This way, performance won’t suffer as you’ll be focused on the task at hand instead of keeping everyone comfortable . If hosting inside a building with established central heating, larger spaces can be made more work-friendly by adding on rented units to these systems. This is energy efficient and won’t cost an arm and a leg either.
Use photography wisely
Having a photographer or photo opportunities at a business function or event can be incredibly useful. It’ll make any business seem more professional. Furthermore, not only will it give the event a sophisticated and refined feeling, but also it can act as publicity for both you and your business.
Photographs can act as testimonies of previous clients and be posted on websites. This is a cost effective method of generating publicity from a trusted source as it’ll prevent shoddy, quickly-taken shots from turning away visitors. If taken on your premises with your permission, legal loopholes won’t be manipulated either.
Of course these points are only a start in the undertaking that is hosting an event, but they generate good ideas for the rest of the practical concerns necessary for the process.
