One of the first things you need to do when you’re planning a corporate event is come up with a theme. This is important for several reasons.
A theme can make a corporate event more enjoyable for guests, whether it’s a Christmas party, a product launch, or a thanksgiving celebration for clients, suppliers, and investors.
Here are some fresh and fun themes and ideas to get you started.
A scavenger hunt is a great idea for the summer, or if the party is going to be held outdoors. It can also be used for any season or venue, if the weather is bad or the venue is just not very interesting.
The point of the game is to have players find a list of items or clues, and then go to the locations where those items of clues can be found.
This is a fun, original, way to get your attendees engaged in the event. Make sure to organize the teams beforehand, and give them all a list with clues to the items they need to find.
A great idea for an office party, conference, or meetup, is to invite a specialist in a particular field to host the event and teach the staff about their area of expertise.
For example, if you’re a recruiting firm, you could invite an HR expert to talk about the latest trends in recruitment, or maybe a lawyer to give a talk about best practices in contract negotiation and employment law.
A fun idea for a corporate event is to organise an Olympic-themed competition. Whether it’s a company vs company situation, or a tournament between departments, this is a great theme to use.
Make sure to post a reminder several weeks before the date. Also, make sure your organisation is ready to award winners and losers with medals and prizes – definitely a great idea to make it a raffle!
A throwback event is a great way to celebrate achievements or just to have some fun. You may organise a party where people dress up, or you can choose a specific year and have people follow the fashion or trends from that time.
For example, if your company is turning ten years old, you can organise a party where your employees dress up according to the fashions of ten years ago.
A masquerade ball is a great idea for an adult corporate event, or you can organise a kid version for children. You can also organise a themed masquerade ball if you want to be creative about it.
This is a great idea if you want to have your event look and feel more like a party, with less of a corporate atmosphere.
This is a good theme to use if you’re organising a Christmas party, a New Year’s event, or a wedding anniversary since a lot of people will already be familiar with it and you won’t have to explain the theme.
If you’re organising a corporate event for the first time, or if you’ve had trouble with this in the past, try one of these unique and creative corporate party themes.
