Organizing a successful corporate summer party that will be remembered and talked about the following year is a real art! The Catering HK team has gathered together to share its expertise with you. We give you all the keys and tips to make this annual event a moment of pure happiness, for your guests, but also for you.
1. PLAN IN ADVANCE
Whether you're an Office Manager, Communication Officer or HR Manager, organizing your company's summer party can quickly turn into an obstacle course. You have to find a date, a place, a caterer, entertainment, all within a sometimes tight budget. Our first piece of advice will not surprise you: Plan in advance. Start organizing your event six to eight weeks in advance so that you have a maximum of options and can solicit the best service providers.
2. THINK ABOUT CULINARY ENTERTAINMENT
What better opportunity than summer evenings to enjoy outdoor culinary entertainment? The options are numerous and varied: burger or croque-monsieur animation, seasonal salad bar, hummus bar, ceviche animation or even dragon meringue animation for the most daring. There is something for everyone! The animations allow to create real moments of conviviality and sharing around original and authentic culinary discoveries. Let yourself be tempted!
3. TAKE YOUR GUESTS ON A JOURNEY
It's summer, the vacations are approaching, offer your collaborators a break from the world by opting for themed banquets and presentation options that will arouse wonder and good humor. For this, bet on the trends of the moment by proposing for example a safari or urban jungle atmosphere to your guests. Decorate your banquet with branches, coconuts, tribal stones and palm leaves to give the illusion of being in the middle of the savannah, and cater your menu with exotic products and enchanting flavors to take you to the four corners of the world.
4. OPT FOR A TURNKEY FORMULA
You want to organize a memorable and magical event for your employees but you don't have the time to think about every detail and to coordinate the many service providers? Don't panic. There are turnkey solutions that make your life easier and turn the organization of your events into a breeze. As we promised at the beginning of the article, our goal is to help you organize the most beautiful summer party and make it an unforgettable moment for your guests, and just as enjoyable for you!
5. BET ON SOCIAL NETWORKS
Your company's party is the perfect time to create engagement on social networks within your teams. If you're organizing a themed party, start by developing a mini website or blog to relay all the useful information and tease your guests before the party. Then, choose a simple and unique #hashtag so that your guests can follow all the photos and posts related to your event on Instagram. To go further, you can also set up a contest that will contribute to the success of your event on social networks. Don't hesitate to contact your Community Manager to develop a social media strategy specific to your summer party.
