The red carpet has been rolled out and the guests are starting to arrive. The paparazzi are shouting, and flashes go off from all directions…. Or maybe not. If your organisation is hosting an awards ceremony, it’s likely to look a little different from the Oscars. But that doesn’t mean that it can’t be just as enjoyable, if it’s done right.
Before you get ahead of yourself with dreams of flashing lights and red carpet, make sure that you know what your budget is. As it’s an awards ceremony, people will want to be impressed, so you may end up spending more on nice food and an entertaining keynote speaker that you first thought. Do your research, crunch the numbers, and come up with a budget that you have to stick to. Understand what wiggle room you have, as well as what the absolute bottom line is. Before booking anything, get as many quotes for the major expenditures as possible, to ensure that you know what you can splash out on, and what you can’t.
It’s important to think about the theme of your ceremony before you commit to anything. Are you going for something that is ultra-formal and sophisticated? Will a black-tie dress code be in place? If so, then your guests are going to turn up with a certain level of expectation for the night. They are going to expect glamour, and you’ll need to deliver it. If it is a little less formal, perhaps a company-wide ceremony, you can dispense with a lot of this. Aim for a more intimate setting with some games or quizzes to help people relax and get into the mood. This will not only allow you to keep your budget down, but it’s also a great chance for some tongue-in-cheek fun!
The venue will set the tone for your evening, and so picking the right one can be the decider as to whether your awards ceremony is a success. What is the capacity that you need? It’s always better to have a little more room, as tables can be spread out a little more, but you don’t want too much empty space, or it will look like you expected more people to turn up. The stage of course, is paramount. Will your guests be able to view it easily? Is it easy for mic and video set-up? Also consider the location of the venue. There are loads of amazing awards ceremony venues for hire in London, but if it’s too far away, then your guests are going to struggle to attend.
If you are having some formal entertainment or speakers, ensure that they fit in with your theme. There’s noting worse than a lecture at an event that’s designed as a fun night out! Comedians are always a good idea, but make sure that they are work-appropriate at the same time. Many awards ceremonies have one major piece of entertainment, but some have multiple speakers instead, which can be just as fun. Make sure that they are fully briefed beforehand, so you don’t get anything unexpected!
Judges and Compere
Knowing who is going to be running the night should be near the top of your list of things to organise. If they are a well-known figure within your company, this is even better as the audience will immediately engage with them. They should also be able to know how to keep the attention of a crowd and have a natural stage presence. After all, they could be announcing all of the awards, so the attention will be on them for most of the night. The judges are also an important selection to make. They should be diverse, from different departments, and senior figures within the company or the field in which you operate. Guest judges are also completely acceptable.
Are you having a formal dinner? If so, you’ll need to decide exactly how you want to approach this, and what style fits the best with your theme. A three-course meal is the standard, and catering companies will be able to easily give you a quote for this. Don’t pick food that doesn’t mesh with the overall theme of the evening. If it is more casual, fancy canapes and caviar aren’t going to fit in, just like ribs won’t work for a black-tie event.
When will dinner be? How long do the speakers get to talk? How many awards are there and how long will each one take? These are all questions that your team should be asking, and they need to be aware of the answers, so you can come up with a rough timing agenda. For catering purposes, the time dinner is served won’t be able to be adjusted on the night, so everyone will need to be aware of this. Apart from that, it’s likely that the timings will have some leeway, but no one enjoys an event that goes on two hours later than expected, and a lot of people will leave if you don’t wrap up on time.
Once you have the date and venue set, it’s time to start promoting your event. Make sure that everyone involved knows about it well in advance and use the awards to encourage attendance. It should be an event that guests want to attend, not one that they feel forced to go along to, so keep this in mind during internal promotion. Are you inviting the press? If so, do this early. Now is the time for you to put together a press kit for the media with information about the speakers, judges, and your company.
An awards ceremony is a big event to organise, so you’ll need a good task list! Overall, remember that it’s meant to be a fun night, no matter how formal. Start looking for venues well in advance, and you’re sure to have an evening to remember.
