The idea of a corporate event is to step away from the office and create an atmosphere for coworker bonding and building company culture. Often times the party is held outside of work hours and workers are encouraged to participate in the festivities.
Being part of the Bay Area, there are so many choices to find a rare location. The first step is to book the venue then select the theme for your corporate event.
After the venue has been secured it is best to search for the vendors quickly. The good vendors may have an event so it is good to secure. The longer you procrastinate the higher chance the vendor may not be available.
Also consider the theme of the event and the message that you want to share at the event.
Finally, you may think about the add ons such as food, and drinks and transportation for your guests. Providing transportation to the event and back will make it convenient for the guests in case they do not like driving to San Francisco for example or deal with parking situation.
Some Corporate events are similar to the year before and change is good. With the Bay Area as your venue to choose from, there are many options for cool activities. A lot of time the major of the responsibilities is bestowed on one person which can be a bit stressful but with a team it can be easier to handle. Some venues can be all inclusive which can include a coordinator who can secure fun activities for your company to do.
