Are you organizing an award show? If so, here are a few of our experts’ tips and suggestions for you…
Figure out what you want to achieve though this show
Now, we are going to tell you right off the bat that this is the first step you need to do; even before approaching event companies. If you are organizing this award show with a committee, then sit down together and try to pen the reasons for this show. Figure out what exactly is that you want to achieve through this occasion. For example, if this is for your workplace, then this might be an award show to appreciate the loyal employees. Figure out how you are going to select those who will be awarded; and quite the same way, figure out who will be handing out the awards as well.
Set a budget for the whole event
Once you know what exactly it is that you want to achieve through this award ceremony, it is time to set up a budget. Setting up a budget will help you create an outline for your event; and let you know what is possible, and what is best left out. Once you have nailed this down, you can approach an events company if you choose to. Remember, everything from where you are going to have the occasion, how many invitations to send out, to even what kind of food you are going to serve all depends on your budget; so make allowances.
Choose a venue
It is vital that you choose the venue of your bog day with care. Award shows are in general supposed to be a huge celebration; so make sure your venue reflects this sentiment. Keep the number of guests in mind when selecting the venue¾you don’t want a place too large, or too small for your crowd. It is also important that you keep your budget, as well as whatever is planned in the agenda in mind, so that you know for sure all of those tasks can be carried out well in your venue.
Entertainment for all
Admittedly, award shows are pretty much only rewarding for those receiving an award. However, not everyone is going to be appreciated or gifted with an award on the day of the occasion; so why should they come? For one, the free food should entice them¾so make sure to make their time worthwhile with your food menu. But apart from that, you could also make the entertainment interesting; giving them something to look forwards to for that day.
