How to Plan a Successful Corporate Event in the Summer

If your goal is to make your next corporate event a booming success, sticking with the average annual conference at the same old location may not be the way to go. Move beyond dull and uninspired and let the beautiful warmth and excitement of summer inspire your next corporate gathering!

Here are some tips for planning a successful outdoor summer corporate event:

Organize your set-up

After picking an outdoor venue for your outdoor corporate event, decide on your set-up necessities. Will you need tables and chairs complete with linens? Is it hot enough to require fans? Do you plan on inviting a speaker that needs a podium or stage? Answer these questions and visualize your event’s activities to ensure you have proper furniture and accessories.

Consider using a tent to keep employees shaded and comfortable. Keep food and other supplies under the tent and out of the sun.

Sprinkle in something unexpected

Dedicate time apart from the work-related purpose of your event to incorporate some fun with something out of the ordinary like a dance floor or bounce house. Employees can dance off their stress or bounce away their cares, making your outdoor event more than a corporate function.

Unify your team

Nothing screams “successful corporate event” more than enjoyable team building activities that help employees collaborate and access their competitive side.

Hosting an event outdoors lends itself to fabulous activities like scavenger hunts around the city or the local park. Employees break up into groups and find clues that lead them to a highly valued prize (like a free day off!) while solving puzzles and building camaraderie along the way. Backyard sports also make perfect events for athletic coworkers; split up into teams for a round of flag football or company softball.
