Corporate events with Style

December 21, 2015 / no comments

Take your event to the next level by making it chic and sophisticated. The easiest and simplest way to do that is by using lounge furniture. High end lounging furniture! Lounge furniture can add so much class to any event.

Here are a few reasons why it works with corporate events.

  • Perfect for filling out empty places especially if you are using an extremely large room
  • Gives an area for people to talk privately before an event starts 
  • Adds to the overall look and theme of the event
  • It provides seating especially during the cocktail time 
  • It’s great opportunity for people to sit, socialize before the event 

Keep in mind that they are out door furniture and those that you can use inside. The furniture should definitely match your theme and colours.

Here are a few furniture to drool over:

Planning a Chic Corporate Gala

December 7, 2015 / no comments

Are you a Corporate company in Ottawa looking to host a Gala? Are you planning a fundraising gala event? We will be outlining our top 6 amazing ways to plan a chic corporate gala! At RSVP Events, we are known to keep with current times and styles. Elegance, chic and modern is what we aim to work with in order to give you a more elite event. This approach will attract a bigger, more elite clientele  and makes any event more profitable every year for years to come!

Planning a successful gala requires commitment, resources and a team of knowledgeable individuals who can pull it off.  You want the event to be successful in every sense and that means doing it right the first time. If you are a Charity Corporation or a Not-for-Profit, you normally rely on annual galas for essential cash flow, donations and above all raising awareness for the cause.

Follow these amazing steps to plan your next chic and successful Gala with style.

SAVE THE DATE Pick your date as early as possible. Keep in mind that thousands of businesses plan events every year.  You do not want other event overshadowing your event. You must also ensure that the date does not conflict with other religious holidays, large city events such as a hockey games or other competing galas. You will be fighting for sponsors and ticket sales.

VENUE Remember we are throwing a chic event. Pick a venue that will reflect this style.  We are looking for a modern, unique and chic venue. Ottawa has a few of these venues.  If you are interested in Hotels, think Le Chateau Laurier, Brookstreet Hotel, Ottawa Marriott and the Hilton Lac Leamy! Museums are also a great location for corporate events- Museum of Nature and The Museum of History or the War Museum will certainly wow your guests.  Ottawa does have a lot of beautiful venues. Find the right venue with RSVP Events. 

EVENT GOALS What are you hoping to achieve with your event? How many guests are you hoping will attend the event? What are your revenue streams during the event? Are you hosting a silent and live Auction? Your goals will help shape and direct where the event is heading. Your event planner can help you achieve this.

STAND OUT Determine what you can use to stand out. What will attract clients to your event? This can be achieved by having a celebrity speak out at your event, maybe wowing all your guests with amazing entertainment, maybe a celebrity chef? You will know what will stand by understanding your target market.

BE DIFFERENT Donating money to a cause or charity looks good for any company. Every other company is doing exactly that. What will make your event stand out? Offer something different that others are not doing. Perhaps offering culture foods and elements for your guests? Corporate planning with RSVP Events

HIRE AN EVENT PLANNER/ DESIGNER Companies often underestimate the time and efforts it takes to pull to plan an events especially a successful  gala. Most companies expects an internal employee to plan the event and this employee may already have a huge work load to balance. In order to get the best results, invest in a professional team of planners and designers and take the stress off of your staff. When the day finally comes, your planner will have the décor and production covered, while your staff can enjoy the night and schmooze and migle with donors.

GUESTS Ensure your guests are having a great time. Provide great entertainment to keep them entertained through out the event. Ideally you want the guests to stay until the very end. Have live performances, photobooths, live music or some great ways for interactions.

How to choose the perfect venue for your Next Event

Ottawa venues

Are you planning an event? Whether you are planning a business retreat, a conference, a 50th wedding anniversary or any event, you will need a venue to host it in. Securing a venue can be a challenging task for most of our clients.  Here are a few things to consider when choosing your venue.

1. Availability- You are researching the venue and think you have found the perfect place. The first thing you need to do is to make sure that the venue is available on the date you wish to have your event. You should plan for this ahead of time, especially if the date is something you are not willing to be flexible with.

2. Capacity- Make sure the venue can accommodate the number of guests you wish to invite. You will also need to ensure along with tables, that the dance floor, DJ area, bar and any additional tables will be able to fit in the room. Ask for a sample floor plan, room size and make sure you conduct a site visit. The venue should be suitable for the type of event you wish to have.

3. Site Visit- Make sure you make an appointment to take a tour of the venue you wish to have your event. Is the venue handicap accessible? If it’s an outdoor event, do they have a backup plan in case it rains? Does it have sufficient parking? What else is provided with the rental of the venue?

4. Lighting of the room- is the venue to dull or in some cases has no windows? Do you need to bring in extra lighting? Lighting is huge, for photography purposes, décor elements and much more. Visit your venue at the time of day that your event will be held to have a better idea of what it will look like when you hold the event.

5. Sound- Does the venue have good acoustics? This is especially important if you are having entertainment. Look out for the number of outlets that the room has. You might need to bring speakers or extra equipment.

6.Parking- Make sure the venue has sufficient parking for the number of guests attending. And if they do not have parking space, what are the alternatives?

This should give you an idea of what to look for when looking for a venue for your event. Call us today to help you with your next event.
