When it comes to planning a corporate event, you want to ensure you have a clear plan on what the purpose for your event is and how you will structure your event to get maximum benefit.

At View By Sydney, we aim to help provide our clients with the best possible resources so they can make educated choices on how to plan and host their next corporate event. One of the key aspects of hosting is the time of the week you plan your function.

So that is why we have put together more information to help you make the right choices moving forward.

When is the best time of the week for an event?

For any type of corporate event, you want to ensure all customers, team members or stakeholders are attending to help you reach your desired outcome. Whether that is a workshop, conference or simple presentation, your aim is to get as many guests to your event as you have invited.

The key to ensuring this happens is by hosting your event on the right day of the week. As you probably can imagine, when it comes to anything work or professional related, most people are more inclined to attend a midweek event.

Midweek events allow your professional guests to use their working hours to get added value to their career, making it a more attractive time to host any corporate event.

So, if you are planning on hosting a corporate function, make sure you look at a time that is best suited for all your guests. Yes, they may have to take some hours off work to attend. However, they are more likely to attend that way in comparison to using their weekends instead.

Although hosting midweek is a major consideration for your next corporate event, you also want to make sure you cover off a lot of other action items before you set up your function.

What are the types of things you need to consider?

Guests  

Your guest list is one of the most important aspects of planning your next corporate event, not only does this help determine roughly how many people will be at your event. But it also helps you determine the time you will be hosting.

If your event is majority clients or team members, you will ideally – as we said before, need to host a midweek event to ensure you get the numbers you need.

Once you know the number of guests you are dealing with and where they are coming from, you can source the perfect location.

Location

It is really all about the location! Where are you planning on hosting your next corporate event? You want to make sure it is in a central location and easy to access for all your guests.

At View By Sydney, our location is perfect for any type of guests attending. With only a short distance from the CBD, whether you have local or traveling guests, we are easily accessible. For midweek events, it is a perfect distance by car or foot.

After you have decided on your ideal location, you want to start scouting for beautiful venues.

Venue Interior and exterior

Although not a big deal for some, when you are hosting an event, you want to make sure it is a venue that is pleasing to look at and be hosted in. From the interior design and decor to the exterior look and feel, you want your guests to enjoy being at your chosen venue.

The best part about View By Sydney is the beautifully structured venue with great taste for design backed with the stunning views of the Sydney Harbour!

When you choose an event for any function, you want to make sure everyone enjoys being in the venue itself. It may not seem like a necessity, but it makes a lot of difference to the overall experience.

Once you have all those aspects planned, you need to find a venue with all the right equipment.

Technology

Whether it is a presentation, workshop or conference, you need to ensure you know all the A/V you need for hosting your corporate event.

Once you have mapped out exactly what you will require, it makes it easy to choose the right venue for hosting. At View By Sydney, we have all state-of-the-art technology to help you host any corporate event, all you need to do is plan your dates and guests, and we can help with the rest. 

Catering

Finally, what you need to consider with hosting any corporate event is the type of catering you will need. Are you hosting a lunch or dinner? Will you just need light refreshments?

Hosting mid-week events can help you decide what type of catering you will need. View By Sydney offers a range of catering from light meals to something a little more. All you need to do is decide your date and time, and our team can help you with the rest.

How do you execute a good corporate event?

Hosting a good corporate event comes down to the time of the week you host, the convenience of the location and the venue choice.

Once you have chosen a day that will be suitable for your guests, all you need to do is choose the place you will be hosting.

From the View By Sydney’s personal experience in corporate event planning, a midweek event is perfect for ensuring your guests attend. Although weekend events for corporate still are successful, it is best to choose a time of the week that doesn’t impact the personal lives of your attendees.
