Want to make your upcoming event the talk of the office after it’s all said and done? Here are some of the best ways to make your event stand out in 2020 and leave your guests more than satisfied.
Get Song Requests from Your Guests
Whether you’re planning to have a DJ or live band at your event, music is an essential component that can amplify the fun factor of any occasion. One of the best ways to get your guests up and dancing is to include some of their favourite tunes in the music line up. So, before your scheduled date, ask for some song requests. This will help them feel included and make them more excited about the occasion.
Take Advantage of Social Media
If you want to show off your gala and get your attendees more involved, why not take advantage of social media? You can encourage guests to post pics on Facebook or Instagram to highlight their favourite features of the night. You could even live stream it on Facebook to spread the word and get others interested in your next event. Don’t forget to create a captivating hashtag for the posts so people can search and find photos even after it’s over.
A great way to host a successful event while also doing some good is to donate proceeds to a charitable cause. People love to offer support when they know it’s going towards a worthy cause. It’s also a good way to encourage people to attend and be generous with their donations. Determine what cause to contribute to and send out some info ahead of your event so your guests can learn more about where their money is going.
Offer Promos or Giveaways
Of course, one of the best ways to pique the interest of your attendees is by offering a special promotion or giveaways that they can win during the course of the evening. It could be a discount on tickets, raffles, door prizes or free drink tickets.
Choose a Venue That has a Glowing Reputation
Finally, above all, selecting a venue that you can depend on to help create a seamless and successful experience is the most important part of hosting a memorable and successful event. They should be able to offer everything you need inhouse, including ample space to suit your guest list, professional staff, catering packages, and more.
