Even though the decision maker might be reluctant, the first crucial piece of information you’ll need is what your budget is. Your corporate event budget will define how big the event will be, how many people you’ll invite, and even what the style or feel will be.
If your budget is looking a little on the small side, it doesn’t mean your event has to be a flop. Here are our top tips for planning a corporate event in London:
The best place to start is to think about why you’re organising an event in the first place. Maybe it’s a meeting, and the team feel it will be more productive and creative off-site. Or you’re organising an elaborate reception to welcome a new CEO or launch an innovative product. Throughout your event planning, keep in mind why the event is happening.
So who’s on the guest list? It’s not always easy to pick who to invite, especially if your event has a small budget. Go back to your purpose - is there anyone who is crucial to achieving the purpose of the event? They should be at the top of your list, and it might be a good idea to check their calendars before you set the date. For catering and capacity considerations it’s good to get a number early on, even if it’s approximate. When you’re organising a larger event such as an all-company christmas party, charity dinner or conference, it’s safe to assume that 10% of your guests won’t be able to make it - but you’ll need to be able to fit them in if they do!
You’ll need to pick a date and a time, and that will depend entirely on the event you’re organising. For meetings - whether in a traditional boardroom or a cool meeting space - it’s likely to be during the work day. For grander events - such as a corporate reception or gala - you’ll be looking at an evening slot. Weekend corporate events are still fairly unusual, but if you’re planning an away-day or team-building activity the weekend could be ideal.
Corporate events come in all shapes and sizes, so before choosing your venue it is a good idea to know as much as you can about your upcoming event. How many people would you like to invite? What area of London would you like the party to be in? Will you be offering food and drinks, and will that be a sit-down meal, a buffet or on platters? What is the likely date of your event and how much budget do you have? Once you’ve got the big details sorted, you’ll be able to find the best venue to suit the event that you want to host on Canvas.
Using the advanced search function on Canvas is the best way to find the venue that’s right for you. Whether you need high-speed WiFi, onsite catering, or technical staff, you can search for venues that will have all the amenities and facilities you need. Once you’ve run your initial corporate hire search on Canvas, you can filter your results using the tabs at the top of the search page. If you find multiple venues that are right for you, use the Wishlist function to save the best spaces and send them a message all at once. It will save you time and stress, and the answers will come straight to your inbox, so you won’t need to keep a hundred tabs open in your browser while you’re waiting for replies!
Costs for corporate hire venues vary a lot, so it’s good to have a rough figure of how much you’d like to spend and work from there. Most corporate events cover the cost of food and drink, so that is what your guests will be expecting. Depending on your guest list it can easily be the most expensive part of hosting an event, so making the event invite-only and offering a buffet rather than a sit-down meal can keep the costs down. If you’re unable to offer an open bar, you can offer drinks vouchers for their first drinks and then guests will be able to pay for their own if they’d like more.
