Parties and incentive days are our speciality and we’ve asked BREC Events Manager Suzanne Clark for her top 3 tips to planning the best party.

DEFINE YOUR EVENT MOTIVE

When we say motive we are referring to the goal for your company party. Knowing the purpose behind your event can help you determine the perfect type or style of party to have, whether your motives are to develop company culture, motivate your team members, recognise your most loyal clients or simply say thanks.

DECIDE ON A THEME

Choosing the right theme will help your event resonate with your attendees, it will help bring everything together to create an unforgettable experience and will dictate your venue, event format, décor and menus.

START PLANNING EARLY

Set the date as early as possible, so you can get on with the all-important task of finding the perfect venue. Take a look at the guest list, having an idea on the number of guests you’d like to invite will help you determine the size of venue and also your event budget. Event Planners can plan an event to suit any budget, it’s just better to have this up-front, so we can get on with the finer details.
