So you’re looking for Brooklyn Corporate Events space for your next big event. Where do you begin? There are host of things to consider especially if you’ve never done this before. We understand your frustration and want to help. Here are 7 mistakes to avoid creating your Brooklyn corporate event or event anywhere.
- Poor Event Date
It’s important to plan carefully for your date. You don’t want to plan your NYC or Brooklyn corporate events too close to major holidays or vacationing times. These might include Christmas Holidays and summer holidays and vacation times. This could affect attendance.
- Long Speeches
Most people like corporate events, especially if there is good food. No one likes a long speech. Plan the timing of your speeches and presentations in detail to the minute. It’s best to set an end time for those speeches rather than beginning time. That way if someone does run over you continue to stay on time with the next speech ending as it should. You can even use a trick from the Academy Awards. To keep things on schedule they use music, an orchestra to wrap up their award acceptance speech. Use a DJ instead.
- Neglecting To Have A Venue Walk Thru
You really need to know if the space is right for the event. It allows you to meet the venue staff you’ll be working with, discover technical elements and determine if there is enough room for your guests.
- Lack of Checklists
Our brains can only retain so much information. Inevitably something will be overlooked. Use checklists to help you organize, break down the details and get things done. Share these lists with those delegated to help you execute the event.
- Poor Food
Food is critical to a great event. We’ve all be to event where the food was a bit lackluster to say the least. If the food is poor, the event becomes very long and the attention of your attendees wanes. Make sure your guests and attendees are taken care of. Avoid poor menu and food. It will be worth it in the end.
- Lack of Entertainment
