Corporate Event Ideas In 2021

Corporate event planning is complicated. Not only are you planning an event with food, drink, and fun, but more than likely, your clients or stakeholders will want some extras. Many corporate events need a stage, projection screens, entertainment, breakout rooms, and much much more. How do you decide which extras will make your event sing? Here are some corporate event ideas that you can use in 2021 and beyond!

Go Hybrid With Your Event

Virtual corporate events add even more complexity to the planning process. How do you keep everyone engaged, have fun, and make the most out of a virtual event? One idea is to go hybrid. With venues following stringent health and safety protocols, you can use beautiful outdoor event venues and give guests the option to come in-person or attend from home. For at-home event guests, you can send them something fun like a cocktail kit that can help bring people together even if from a distance. Our partners at Vintana can help. Contact their team today to see how they can bring your ideas to life.

We have seen some hybrid events even have their DJ’s tap into the virtual call so that folks at home can join in on the dance party and any other fun entertainment going on. Not only are hybrid events perfect for companies with multi-locations, but they are great for your employees and team who simply can’t make it the day of your event. You can record and share with your entire org to attend at their convenience. We think hybrid events will gain tons of popularity this year, and our indoor and outdoor event venues in San Diego County are the perfect spot to host them.

Host a Micro Event

You may be familiar with micro weddings. They are an intimate wedding characterized by their guest count of 50 people or less. Many people are planning micro weddings to host the event of their dreams on smaller budgets and in beautiful destinations. 

And, the same can happen for a corporate event. Whether you want to throw an exclusive event for one of your teams to help with your corporate culture or you have a growing team to begin with, a micro event might be perfect for you. A series of micro-events to keep them intimate and personalized are ideal for large teams as well. As with any corporate event, you will want to get started planning early. But, with a smaller guest count, you can likely find availability at your dream venue and include wonderful food and entertainment that you otherwise wouldn’t be able to fit into your budget.

Get Outside

Outdoor corporate events are perfect for spreading out and leaves room for memorable corporate event entertainment. For the most part, your guests will remember the food, location, and what you did. So, while you might be worried about the details of decor and getting the perfect setup figured out, the magic lies in the vendors. Unique ideas like food trucks for corporate events are ideal for bringing in different foods to meet everyone’s needs and make it ultra-memorable. You can also bring in small food trucks like funnel cakes, s’mores trucks, a coffee cart, and more so that your guests can enjoy a fair-like night.

When it comes to corporate events in 2021, it is going to take a lot of creativity. But, these events are something we will remember for a lifetime. After a year off, making these events memorable, exciting, and safe will be necessary for everyone.
