So, you’ve landed the all-important job of organising a work-related party. Naturally, your boss wants you to ensure the event completely “wows” all your important clients. Talk about pressure! Get it right and you’ll be able to bask in the glory. Get it wrong? Well, it’s not worth thinking about, is it? Talking about getting it wrong, the worst thing you can do is decide on a regular dinner or drinks party. As that would likely be completely forgettable, whereas you want your corporate party to be a night clients talk about for weeks to come. The key is to think outside the box. Do something a little different. Make your event unique, and you’re more likely to impress. Here are 7 unique corporate party ideas to consider:
1. Eat with the fishes
Freak your clients or employees into submission by seating them next to a proper, real-life shark! Think outside the box and host a party where guests – instead of being surrounded by four boring walls all evening – are enveloped by a dramatic floor to ceiling aquarium setting. Sydney Aquarium is one marine attraction that hosts corporate parties. From intimate dinners to more large scale events, a tour of the aquarium can also be included as an optional part of the package.
2. Make your party mobile
Show your clients an awesome time, while on the move! Think “party bus,” then add “luxury” and “high-end” to the experience and wham! You’ve got an awesome, unique night out that is sure to impress party-loving clients. If you’re in Sydney, then Oz Party Events is one company that provides such a service. Its luxurious “limo bus” can host between 15-45 people and features awesome lighting, and sound, including your own DJ to spin the tunes you like as you cruise the city streets.
3. Corporate Cruise
Delight your clients with amazing views and a novel yet quality experience they won’t forget easily. Take them on a specialised corporate cruise that offers a VIP service and excellent food. Sure to impress!
Burlesque has become increasingly popular again in recent years. If you want to show your clients a provocative – but not sleazy – night out, then consider booking your event at a top burlesque club. Alternatively, you could hire a specialised burlesque or cabaret company that will bring their show to the venue of your choice.
5. Aerial artists
Hire professional acrobats to dazzle your clients with their amazing feats.
6. Game it up
Treat your guests to a reminder of their youth by turning your party venue into a games arcade compete with all the classics, like pinball and Space Invaders.
7. Get party-goers involved
Make your party a day or night to remember by involving the guests in a cool activity they’ll love. Dependant on the profile and number of attendees you could consider a chef masterclass or chocolate making class, a quad biking trip, wine tasting, race car experience or treasure hunt party. The options are basically endless.
