Top 13 Corporate Event Planning Ideas
Give back to your local community, while showing your employees the importance of social responsibility by hosting volunteering events. You can host fundraisers, volunteer at a local soup kitchen, senior homes, and so much more.
2. Live Music Concert
If you want to get your employees up and dancing, then a live music concert is definitely the way to go. Support local bands or DJs and make sure they play your audience’s favorite songs.
3. Company Picnic
Take advantage of the summertime weather and host your next internal company event outside. Your employees can enjoy some BBQ food and games like potato sack racing, all under the sun.
4. Indoor Go-Karting
One of Aventri employees' favorite internal event spots is indoor go-karting, because it’s competitive and fun! Recently, Aventri visited RPM Raceway, which offers go-karting, head-to-head racing, bowling, virtual reality simulators, and more.
5. “Family Day”
A take on “bring you kid to work day”, you can host a fair “family day” where employees bring their families. Children can enjoy pony rides and face painting, while employees munch on hamburgers and hotdogs and connect with their peers and their families.
6. Escape Rooms
Divide your company into teams, either by departments or randomly, and have your employees find clues and solve puzzles together in order to escape the room in time.
Another Aventri-employee-approved corporate event idea is hosting your next event at Bowlmor. Located across the country, Bowlmor features more than just bowling. Employees can sip on cocktails, dine from a selection of delicious eats, like the 14-inch party bacon cheese burger, and more.
8. Scavenger Hunt
If you’re looking for a classic, successfully proven internal team building event for your employees, then a scavenger hunt is perfect for you. You can center the theme of the scavenger hunt around your company’s latest product, a department, etc.
Carnival parades, like Rio’s Carnival, have become a popular celebration. You can offer your employees carnival-themed music, dancing, and costumes.
10. Food Trucks
Cater to your employees’ inner foodies by hosting a food truck festival. You can rent local hot dog, pizza, taco, sandwich trucks, ice cream trucks, and more!
11. Paint & Wine Night
Keep your employees engaged all night long, by hosting your next company event at a wine and paint night. Last year Aventri employees went to Muse Paint Bar, but some others include, Painting With a Twist, and Pinots Palette.
12. Company Trivia
Trivia parties are classics. They are fun and directly engage your audience. You can put your own company’s spin on trivia night by having all the questions relate to your company, products, and fun facts about employees.
13. Lunch and Learns
According to top executives, lunch and learns are an one of the three types of internal marketing events that help generate sales. Whether these lunch and learns are centered on learning about a new product, product updates, or learning from a guest speaker, they are a great opportunity to bring the company together while promoting internal learning.
