Meeting Planning Tip of the Week: Tips for Choosing the Right Theme for Your Special Event
To choose the perfect theme for a special event, consider the décor, music and entertainment, as well as the food and beverage. These factors should all encompass the theme to set the right tone for the occasion.
When collaborating with an on-site event production team, consider the following:
Décor - What type of atmosphere do you want to create? Would your guests be most comfortable in a traditional setting, or would a themed special event better suit your objectives?
Entertainment - Will the audience prefer passive or active involvement in the entertainment? For instance, a more casual event can be enhanced with games, such as billiards and foosball, which let guests interact. At a more formal event, you may want to include a musical performance as part of the evening’s entertainment.
Food & Beverage - Do you prefer a full sit down meal or a lighter spread that enables guests to mingle more actively with each other? Are there any special dietary restrictions to keep in mind?
