You might well think that holding corporate events could be a costly waste of capital and time, but that is to overlook some important facts about not only networking opportunities but also customer as well as employee satisfaction. Below we will explore why you won’t want to miss such an opportunity for building your business and brand.

You could ask yourself what is the purpose of corporate events? 

One might host a corporate event for a myriad of reasons, and the benefits of such an event are just as diverse. On a smaller scale a business could host a fun day out for employees to mingle and build bonds outside of the confines of their usual roles and rigid routines. Hosting even just one day yearly such as this goes a long way to making employees feel valued, boosting morale as well as teamwork with proven results in work ethic and productivity.

Another beneficial reason for an event would be a product launch to build brand awareness. It provides a platform for interested customers or businesses to engage with your brand, widening your client base and interested parties of all kinds to network with your growing brand. It not only promotes new or existing products and services but also provides a platform to have memorable and meaningful engagement with your company.

Marketing events provide an atmosphere for networking, brand awareness as well as positive association to your brand, they also bring in potential investors and clients you might otherwise never have reached. It’s the perfect opportunity to shake hands and leave clients and investors alike with a positive and memorable impression of your company.

How much do corporate events cost you ask? 

Decide on a budget and discuss it clearly with your venue making sure you keep on top of costs but don’t lose sight of the staff or customer as experience is paramount and attendees of any kind should leave with a lasting and joyful experience. Depending on your specific needs and aims one could creatively execute any idea, however the best way to leave a positive impression is with a beautiful venue like our very own Warwick house, which is perfectly laid out and ready to cater to any corporate event.

In the short term such an event might cost a bit to pull off, but in the long run your expanded client base and improved employee morale will easily see returns greater than the investment in even more than just a monetary sense. Don’t overlook the power of a positive shared experience for morale and lasting impressions, both customers and employees will be left feeling grateful and benefited by the experience and you can’t put a price on that.

Intimate guest experience

Having a midweek wedding doesn’t mean your guest list has to be smaller, but you need to be realistic and understand that not everyone you invite will be able to come. However, if you plan on a small and intimate wedding then a weekday wedding may be exactly what you’re after.

Not only can you have your dream, relaxed wedding during the week whilst the world carries on as normal, but you can also really make the most of those meaningful interactions with people who have stopped their busy schedules to celebrate YOU.

Of course, there are a few things you can do to make your midweek wedding a great success, such as giving your guests even more notice of the date (enabling them to make arrangements well in advance) and considering transportation options for the wedding party if people are restricted on time.

Choosing a convenient location is key as guests will want to be able to access the venue with ease if the wedding breaks up their usual routine, and not have to take extra holiday leave dedicated to travel alone.

Finally, if an informal, natural day is what you desire, then be sure to get this message across to your photographer. If you are getting wed on what would ordinarily be a ‘normal’ day of the week, then celebrate the day in the way it should be – a day of peace amongst the usual chaos of life.

Are you ready to book?

Weekday weddings aren’t for everyone, but for those who can, they can be a game-changer.

When you and your partner sit back and look at your wedding spend, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to see that a midweek wedding won’t blow all your savings and that, in fact, you may even have the money to explore new possibilities and break away from traditional norms.

As well as saving money, midweek weddings can help to provide unique experiences such as the chance to get married in a space that otherwise wouldn’t be available, or to hire your venue exclusively so that you can be completely at ease in your surroundings.

Midweek weddings are no longer seen as the budget wedding, they are probably even more ‘extra’ because couples have realised they can do their dream wedding AND MORE just by shifting the day backwards or forwards.
