3 Tips for Planning the Next Corporate Event

Discover how to plan a successful corporate event!

If you are in charge of planning the next corporate event for your office, securing the right corporate catering is a crucial part of the planning process. Here are some of our best tips for planning your next corporate event, from kosher catering to entertainment. 

Hire the Right Corporate Catering Company

Always start by hiring the right corporate catering company for your event. It’s a great idea to work with the same catering company every time, especially if they can adequately meet your needs for volume and quality of service. Ongoing catering contracts can also save you money in the long run, and the company will appreciate the business.

Determine Your Head Count

Before you can dive into the rest of your corporate catering planning, you need to have a solid head count to give the caterer for an estimate. How many people will be attending your corporate event? This early total does not need to exactly equal who will be showing up that night, but it should be a ballpark estimate of how many people will be coming. This is also a good time to consider dietary restrictions. How many people coming to your event have special dietary needs? Choosing a kosher catering company is a great way to accommodate a diverse range of appetites without sacrificing top quality.

Choose Your Schedule

Planning your next corporate event also means setting a timetable for the day. Entertainers and catering companies will need this information to adequately staff your event, so set the schedule for the day as early as you can. If your next corporate event is going to be all day long, it’s especially important that you plan out the speakers and the pacing of the day early. Will you be offering all of the meals on-site with delicious corporate catering or only providing breakfast and dinner and allowing employees to go out on their own? Again, this should be decided in advance and communicated to your kosher catering company and staff.
