How to make corporate events more fun

Do your employees currently roll their eyes and sigh heavily whenever the words ‘company training day’ or ‘team building exercise’ are mentioned? If so, you might need to come up with a new strategy to get your team to engage with essential corporate events and make them actually want to attend. 

Therefore, it makes sense for any company to experiment by injecting a bit of fun into corporate events. Not only will attendees be more engaged and interested, it will have benefits for the brand and business too.

 

Hire a photo booth

Perfect for trade and promotional events, photo booths have a range of real benefits. In addition to entertaining both employees and guests, our photo booth customisation optional extras enable you to add full branding to the exterior to suit any event.

What’s more, photo booth customisation extends inside too, as everyone who enters can leave with a unique and novel business card. Pictures can also be uploaded to your company social media feeds.

 

Change the venue or environment

If you use the same venue year after year, it might be time for a change. Think outside the box and choose a more exciting and unusual venue, such as a funky art space or museum, a camp in the forest or maybe a large marquee if it’s a big corporate event.T he surroundings of an event will effect and influence everyone’s mood. So if your corporate function is taking place in an emotionless office, employees and guests will probably feel rather impassive too.

Carefully mull over your choice of venue and try to make it as enjoyable as possible. Think outside of the box for team building exercises such as camping or put up a marquee in the countryside.

 

Introduce a theme

Functions or events with a particular theme will be well received by guests, while members of staff are bound to find it amusing too. It can be related to the business or something completely random.

Perhaps ask your employees what kind of theme they would prefer and take a vote. By being original and out of the ordinary, more people will take notice of the brand’s funky, light-hearted and people-focused attitude.

 

Use social media

Along with images from a customised photo booth, your employees and guests can post their own pictures and updates on social media to generate hype, interest and excitement.

Come up with a hashtag to let attendees know how they can get involved and re-visit your preferred networks afterwards to see whether it was a success. This kind of activity can increase brand awareness and improve online reputations.

Even though the thought of a corporate function isn’t very appealing or thrilling, there are a number of ways you can stir up some exuberance, hilarity and fun.

Put some thought into getting the look and feel of your imagery and brand projection right and you will reap the rewards of your new found social media focus. Photo booth customisation is just one step along the way to brand stardom!
