It’s almost the most wonderful time of the year! Have you planned your end-of-year event already? Are you preparing to host a Christmas dinner, a New Year's reception or a kick-off? And how can you make this event a memorable one?
Choose a unique venue
A distinctive, unique venue immediately makes your meeting special, even before it has begun. Think of it as an indelible first impression. For example; What do you think of a fairy-tale castle? Your event venue says a lot. It says whether the event will be high-end or budget, luxurious or rudimentary. It’s one of the first indications guests get about the style of the event before they attend it, so it’s important to choose a venue that will give off the right impression. Get this party started!
Make connection a priority
Giving each other genuine attention; creates a connection. But how do you create that during a business meeting? Welcome your guest personally. This can be done by a professional host, but it is even more powerful when it is someone from the company itself. This host stands at the door and gives your guests a warm welcome and shows them where to go. In this way, you ensure that all guests feel seen and welcome. In addition, surprise your guests with a personal thank you. This can be as small as an envelope with a letter waiting for them on their plate before dinner starts. Write down what this person has meant to you or the company in the past year. This will be appreciated!
Add experience to your event
Having fun together ensures that you make memories. Experience can be added to your meeting in various ways. What do you think of a theme party with a dress code and live music? It immediately adds an atmosphere to your event. Or feel what it is like to be pulled through the surroundings of the hotel of your choice by Siberian huskies? In fact, this activity can be performed in all weather conditions, as the cart can be equipped with skis or wheels. Another fun activity that stimulates cooperation and creativity is the ice carving workshop. Of course, warm drinks and biscuits will be provided to keep you warm.
