If you were asked to think about events that a marquee is normally hired for, you’ll most likely think of weddings, garden parties, birthday celebrations and intimate family gatherings. In fact, one of the last things that might come to your mind is a large corporate event. In recent years, more and more companies have come to realise the benefits to hiring a marquee for their corporate functions, and it’s a trend that’s set to continue all over the country.
If you’re a business owner who regularly holds corporate functions, you’ll know how important choosing an appropriate venue is to the success of such events. Once you have a suitable venue secured, the rest of the planning gets a little easier. On that note, let’s discuss why a marquee would be the perfect venue choice for your next corporate party.
Shielding you and your guests from the sun, wind and rain, marquees have the power to completely weather-proof your corporate event. Irelands weather is unpredictable to say the least, so just because your event is planned for mid-July, a fine sunny day is something that never comes guaranteed. Your guests will most likely have travelled a considerable distance to attend your corporate party so it makes sense to provide them with the shelter that they need to enjoy the event.
A marquee is extremely adaptable – so much so that it could be used for any type of corporate event including a book signing, product launch, awards ceremony, business meet and greet, trade show or party. In addition to being adaptable to a wide variety of different types of parties, when you hire a marquee for your corporate party, you can choose what goes inside of it. Perhaps you’d like a stage, dance floor or a simple practical space for product demonstrations? Whatever your preference, your options for layout customisation are virtually endless – as long as the marquee you hire is big enough of course.
More often that not, hiring a marquee is the most cost effective option for businesses with a need for a great venue for their upcoming corporate party. Hiring a venue, such as the function room in a hotel can cost a lot, which sometimes forces companies to skimp on the more minute – yet equally important – elements of the day. Additionally, in choosing to hire a marquee, not only would you save a huge amount of money having to change the appearance of a room in a hotel, you’d also cut down on a number of other costs as most hire companies offer complete customisation packages.
Given the nature of your event, you’ll want to make sure that the image you portray of your company is a professional and positive one. To really reinforce the corporate nature of your event, you could choose to hang drapes or strategically place flower arrangements in the colours of your corporate branding, or maybe even use a customised coloured lighting system to project your logo onto your chosen backdrop.
Organising a large-scale event of any nature can be a bit of a headache, but this can be especially the case with important corporate parties. With so many factors to consider and so many things to get right, it makes sense to choose the most flexible, cost-effective and professional-looking option, wouldn’t you agree?
