Corporate entertainment can be tricky to get right; there’s always the worry that your jaded corporate clients may become uninterested throughout the evening because they’ve seen it all before. If you’re planning a party to wow your clients, or a corporate get-together for your hard-working employees, check out these fun corporate event ideas that are guaranteed to make a big impression.
Back to the playground
Appeal to the big kid in everyone with an activity that echoes the best bits of childhood. Hire out a soft play centre after hours or visit a theme park with your colleagues.
If you’re out to impress an important client, or simply want to celebrate another great year of achievements, a black tie event in an impressive location will do the trick. Liven up your evening with some fun corporate entertainment; put on a firework display, hire performers to dot around your venue (stilt walkers, jugglers and acrobats will always impress) or put on a choreographed light show. Consider hiring an out-of-the-ordinary event venue, such as a museum, castle, or iconic building.
Fun with food
Catering is one of the fundamentals of corporate entertainment, so why not have fun with it? Clients will enjoy being spoiled with a selection of luxury drinks and canapes, so make food the focus and splash out on some top-class catering. Other fun corporate event ideas involving food and drink might include a brewery or distillery tour, cocktail making activity or team cookery workshop. For culinary activities, you could add a competitive element with a Masterchef-style competition, or simply relax and let everyone enjoy the spoils of their labour.
Ride of a lifetime
For a real treat, go on a trip. Invite your most important corporate clients on a classy balloon ride, helicopter flight or classic car event. Or why not take your staff on an adrenaline-fuelled team skydive or off-road driving adventure.
On a staff away day, employees are there to have fun, but also to bring something extra to their working lives, through learning a new skill or building better relationships with colleagues across the organisation. Popular team-building activities, such as sports days or orienteering challenges, are classic ways to achieve this; but why not think outside the box for something a little more quirky? For example, pit your Accounting team against Marketing in a Laser Quest challenge.
