Top Tips to Organising a Gala Dinner or Awards Night that people will Remember
Our Event specialists will assist transforming your room for corporate events and Gala Dinners
If you are a planning a Gala Dinner, Awards Night or Post conference dinner for the first time, we feel your pressure. In fact, it doesn’t matter how many times you’ve organized your Company Gala Awards Night, there’s a lot to manage and so much that can go wrong without good planning! Whether a Virtual Awards night or a Live Gala Dinner, there is a lot to consider.
That’s why many people choose Event Management Specialists such as Eventologists to provide the expertise to help create a memorable event that people will have fun at. We have vast experience in planning events from family fun days and corporate launches to Gala Dinners and charity balls. From the smallest intimate meeting to the largest corporate launch event, our team of events experts can plan and deliver flawless logistics, prepare unique event concepts including themed events, and deliver striking and high impact production including the audio-visual content for your event.
Having delivered thousands of events over the past 15 years, what would be our top 3 tips to focus on?
- Visual Impact at Events – from the moment that guests walk through the door, they should feel transported. Stunning entrances, dramatic venue styling and then entertainers that are highly visible. If it’s a night out, then it should feel like a night out of the normal! This issue is even more challenging with a virtual event and its not just about a platform.
- Exciting Gala Dinner Entertainment – if they’re attending, they want to be entertained, so look at the best entertainment options from the moment they walk in. Think about in-between courses and a star performance or a key act that they will all talk about!
- Inclusivity adds to the interaction – making guests feel part of the event rather than just a spectator is hard, but if you crack it, you’re set to create an event that everyone will remember. That’s why many people choose Themed Events that encourage people to participate in the Theme.
