Spring is here and that means a lot of corporate get-togethers, corporate retreats, employee appreciation events and team building excursions. Dates and venues go quickly! It’s never too early to start planning and we’re here to help. Here are five things to consider when planning your next corporate event and how we can provide guidance and inspiration throughout the process!
When planning your event, determine your goals, set your budget and brainstorm a theme or tone. We have the experience to help you navigate this area. Do you need a DJ? Concessions? Tables, chairs, tents? Maybe a photo booth or mechanical bull? We can also help guide the search for potential venue sites. We can do walk throughs and establish the flow of the entire event making recommendations along the way. Let our experience inspire you to think outside the box.
Booking your event well in advance is crucial to a successful event. It relieves stress, gives vendors adequate time to prepare and makes room for any unexpected occurrences. Confirm your dates! We’ll advise every step of the way and can coordinate with entertainers and caterers. But dates fill up quickly, make sure to contact us to discuss your individual needs. This is also a good time to send out your save-the-date materials.
Congratulations! You’re booked! This is the perfect time to confirm all your arrangements, send out official invitations and create a plan B in case weather may play a factor. Any arrangements made through Jumpin Jiminy will all be managed by us, you’ll benefit from the peace of mind that we’re crossing “t’s” and dotting “i’s”.
We’re set up and ready go. Let’s do one last walk through and make sure things are exactly as planned. If other staff or individuals are involved, call a team staff meeting to get reports and issue responsibilities to all appropriate parties. If requested, we’ll have staff on site as well to make sure things run smoothly on our end.
Have an casual internal staff meeting regarding the event. Get feedback on what worked and what didn’t. Save your notes for next years event. And let us know the same. How’d we do? What can we do better? What would you like from us next year?
Jumpin Jiminy has all the elements to make your next event a success. And we’ll help you every step of the way. Don’t delay, let’s put a plan together today!
