The party was hoppin’ at the “B-Mingling Vendor Appreciation Party!”
We had the pleasure of attending a networking event at the B Resort! It was a night filled with mingling and talking to fellow vendors while sampling some good eats also, busting a move on the dance floor! With everyone’s busy schedules, it’s not often that we all get to be in the same room so we loved getting the chance to catch up and discuss ideas with our friendors. The B Resort is such a cool venue, and was the perfect spot for this shindig!

7 Tips to Make Your Next Corporate Bash A Success!
Featured: Clear Tent
Corporate events are becoming more & more essential to a company’s marketing strategy. When done right, they help spread the word about a business and how it treats/rewards its customers & its employees. Whether you’re throwing a fundraiser, company shindig, or private party, we have some tips to simplify the planning process!
•Identify the “What”•
-Establish what you’re wanting to achieve at the event. Whether it be to raise funds or launch a new product, setting these goals ahead of time can help you decide on a budget, not to mention, a venue. Knowing what you want to spend allows you to decide what elements are most important to you, for instance, do you want a guest speaker? Do you want the latest technology? Answering these questions early allows for safe and easy planning!
•Choose the “Where”•
-Select a venue that reflects your goals! The new club in town may seem hip & trendy but if you’re trying to host an event to educate employees, a club might not be the best choice. Once your venue is set, everything else can fall in to place! We recommend choosing a venue as soon as you know what you’re willing to spend. Check out our blog on Downtown Orlando venues for inspiration!
•Make a Plan; Establish the “How”•
–How are you going to make sure your event goes off with out a hitch? By avoiding the assumption that everything will go perfectly! Schedule a site visit with your vendor team & have back-up plans for your back-up plans.
•Spread the Word!•
– Utilize social media to build excitement leading up to the event. Also, consider making an email campaign targeted towards fellow vendors to advertise your shindig. On the day/night of the event, make it social with a custom Snapchat filter, a Photobooth, and/or a Live stream. Share those photos & make folks wish they were there! Be sure to check out our Photobooth, here!
•Relax & Stay Awhile•
-Consider adding lounge furniture to your seating options. Not only is it on trend, but guests have the chance to relax & stay awhile rather than being confined to a table and chair set-up. Check out our lounge furniture options to see what all the buzz is about!
•Make it Creative•
-A corporate event doesn’t need to feel like work. Break the mold & create an event that’s fun and interactive. Not only will your guests appreciate it, but you’ll make a lasting impression on fellow vendors & even the competition!
-Alright, you’ve survived and your event was a success! See what your guests thought by conducting a survey and consider giving those who respond, a little reward for taking the time to do so. Talk with your team and gather ideas for future corporate functions plus, see what expectations you all exceeded! This feedback can be invaluable when planning your next event.
