For when it’s time to take the office socialising beyond the water cooler. We know how to put on a killer corporate event – just ask our good friends at (ahem) Nike and Gucci. We’ll get your work Christmas party started, entertain your awards night, or make sure your brand activation is a smash. By the time you’re done schmoozing with Susie from accounts in the photo booth, you’ll be employee of the year.
Corporate events are essential factors in developing great business relationships. It’s a key element in strengthening bonds between your company and clients or amongst management and employees (not to mention it’s a tax right-off!)!
If you are planning to put together a corporate party in 2022 – whether it’s a Xmas Party, Annual celebration or just an old fashioned get down and party, we have some tried and tested tips on how to make it awesome, exciting, and memorable.
As with any event, planning early will always work to your advantage. It will give you time to scout and compare venues, catering services (we get VERY excited seeing the Fourside minivan at gigs) or any other services you’d want to acquire, and lock in a date once you’ve made your final choices. Make sure that the venue will not only be big enough to accommodate all guests, but is also well-suited for the theme of your party.
Make a list of activities.
Why not conduct a poll from your company department to get feedback as to what activities everyone likes or expects to be doing during your corporate party. Would they like to have some games or do they prefer to just chill, catch up with everyone and just enjoy the music? Are you looking at incorporating a short pep talk or a team meeting before the party starts? Be sure that these activities are all planned and clearly outlined in sequence.
Serve great food.
What’s a party without food and drinks to make hearts merry? See to it that each and every guest at your party would have something that they can actually eat from the banquet. It’s nice to serve a wide range of food choices, but if you’re on a budget, it might help to find out in advance what kinds of food your colleagues and guests prefer. You might also want to play it safe and make sure there’s at least a couple of options for people who are vegetarian, vegan, non-alcoholic, etc.
Hire a DJ to Play the Party Music.
Having a professional Disc Jockey to take care of your party music is recommended in any event, especially at corporate events! It’s the easiest way to bring entertainment and excitement to a corporate function, especially when you’re working with the right DJ.
At Heartbreak, we are super proud of our DJs and we have the reviews for proof! Based on what our previous clients have been raving about, we’re pretty confident to say that our DJs are doing a wonderful job at making party people happy.
With over 10 years of experience playing music to various crowds and age groups, there’s never a dull moment when our DJ is in the house. They know how to read a room and bring great tunes to keep your guests entertained and the dance floor partying every minute until closing. Plus, we dare say Heartbreak Hotel has the best-looking Vinyl DJ set-ups you can find in Melbourne.
Don’t Forget the Photo Booth.
Of course, no party would be complete without the photo booth for that extra dose of fun and merriment. Let guests choose their own props, play dress up, feel like stars behind the camera lens, and create memories to their hearts’ content at the photo booth. It’s a sure-fire way to keep your guests engaged and just have a chill and delightful time with friends and new acquaintances.
Heartbreak guarantees you’ll get the most amazing unlimited instant prints from your photo booth. Our Polaroid prints are not your average blurry dim quality bois. The image quality is epic and we can customise backdrops to match your company colours and the print designs to showcase your corporate branding!
Polaroids printed from the Heartbreak photo booth make the perfect mementos for your guests to bring home and to stick on your Corporate Party Album or Guestbook (included in our Penthouse package or can be added on to any of our packages).
One special perk that comes with our Photo Booth package is a dedicated online gallery for ALL photos captured from your photo booth. This gives guests the opportunity to see the rest of the album, save the images they like, and even print their best shots via the online print store.
And did we mention having an attendant to make sure the photo booth is never empty? Some folks might need a bit of an encouragement but after a few poses, would get super comfortable behind the cam and ends up with the best candid shots from the batch.
