Annual Corporate Dinner & Dance

Corporate Dinner & Dance

Why are corporate dance and dinner events so important?

When most companies make a decision to cut down costs, it is common for a few annual events to be among the first items to be eliminated from the budget. However, it is important to know that these events offer much more than just a chance for members of staff to gather.

Here are some of the reasons why an annual corporate dinner and dance event is so important:

They help boost company culture

It is an established fact that when a company keeps its employees engaged, they are able to produce more. The dinner and dance event or any other event presents an ideal opportunity for your company to highlight its culture and core values. No one wants to work for a company where they don’t feel engaged.

Employee validation

Corporate events are very effective when it comes to validating your employees and showing your appreciation for their efforts. When you create a habit of always celebrating success, employees will reciprocate by putting their best foot forward. Company events offer perfect opportunities to celebrate the company, individual employees and teams.

Increased employee engagement

When you keep your employees engaged, you make it easier for them to buy into the company’s culture. Unengaged employees will not put any real effort into their day-to-day roles at the workplace. They will only show up just because they need the paycheck. That is why corporate events should be part of the company strategy to improve employee engagement.

Connect employees and leadership

In most workplaces, you are likely to find a considerable gap between employees and the top leadership. An annual dinner and dance corporate event provides a great opportunity for employees to connect with their bosses in a setting that is much more relaxed than the formal office environment. That is why employees will always be excited at the prospect of any corporate event because it is one of the few times they get to interact with their leaders in a casual environment.

The importance of a corporate dinner and dance event cannot be overstated. It is an event that can have a bearing on your company’s bottom line. Get Out Events is an event company in Singapore that has organized a wide variety of corporate events, including dinner and dance events, for many of the leading companies.

Annual Dinner And Dance Proposal

At Get Out! Events, we have a dedicated team that relishes any opportunity to organize such events. We have a proven track record of helping corporate organizations in Singapore and beyond execute every step of the process of planning the most memorable corporate annual dinner and dance events. As you can see on https://getout.events/annual-dinner-and-dance/, our packages are incomparable with what everyone else is offering out there.

If you are planning on going about the entire process on your own, there are a few things you need to take into consideration. Of course, every situation is different and what works for your organization may not necessarily work for another. It’s all about finding what works best for you.

Here are some tips to help you organize an annual corporate dinner and dance event:

Have a clear event outline

This is where you set your goals for the event and how everyone involved can help make it a success. Your outline will guide you through the entire planning and executing process, from your budget to choice of venue to approach and so on. It is very important that the overall goal of the event is aligned to your overall corporate goals. This is the best way to keep everyone involved on the same page.

Choose a venue

The venue is an integral part of the planning process. That is why it is so important that you take the time to conduct thorough research in order to find the best one. The assumption should be that everyone who is invited will be in attendance. You also need to make a provision for meal providers and entertainment. Make sure that the environment is stylish and that there is enough space for people to be able to socialize freely.

Incorporate a fun theme

This will help keep participants excited and engaged throughout the entire event. In fact, you can involve them in the brainstorming stage to hear their views and get some valuable ideas on the most appropriate theme for the occasion. In addition to boosting the excitement, having the right theme makes everything feel more cohesive.

Find immersive activities to keep participants engaged

This is where you really have to be creative. You don’t want an event where participants are mostly seated and not interacting with one another. That is why it is important to create an atmosphere in which everyone feels like they are part and parcel of the event. This adds to the overall excitement throughout the duration of the event.

Food and drink preparations

Since it’s a dinner and dance event, it’s obvious that food will be a big part of everything. This is where you want to make a special impression on every attendee. Identify the best catering services or restaurants out there and contact a few of them to see if their packages can accommodate all your guests. Whatever the nature of the event, it’s always good to have a menu that is as diverse as possible. Of course, everything should fit within your set budget.

Book entertainment

A dinner and dance corporate event cannot be complete without the appropriate entertainment. An event company in Singapore would have a comprehensive list of all the best entertainment providers. But since you are handling this by yourself, all you need to do is contact a few providers and see what they have to offer. You may also want to seek some advice from others who have successfully held similar events.

Dinner And Dance Emcee Singapore

Picking the right event company for your upcoming dinner and dance event will make or break it – so pick carefully! While most organising committees tend to pick their event host based on past years’ experiences, it is also important to consider that the events industry changes at the speed of light. New emcees enter the scene, older emcees retire or change their careers and existing emcees change their hosting style. Here are some tips to consider when picking your next dinner and dance emcee.

Consider Your Audience

Is your audience evenly split between male and female? Do you have a wide age group range or is one age group more heavily represented than another? Are they comfortable with the event emcee hosting in English, or would they prefer the event hosted in a different language? Keep all of these in mind and book the best D&D emcee for them – not just because your boss is a fan! It would also be wise to consider the size of your group. Some emcees feel more comfortable hosting smaller groups of < 500 pax, while other emcees require a larger group size to make their magic happen on stage.

Seek Advice And Suggestions From A Trusted Event Organiser

Being famous or popular doesn’t make an emcee the best one for your event. Get some testimonials from those in the industry to ensure your event emcee meets all your expectations. It also doesn’t hurt to speak to your friends in other companies who have recently done their D&D to get some new ideas on picking event emcees.

Consider Your Relationship With The Emcee

Most event emcees in Singapore are independent, which means they tend to work with the clients whom they feel most comfortable with. It is important to build a relationship with your event emcee before engaging him/her, so both parties understand each other’s expectations better before your dinner and dance.

Emcee Style

Are you looking for more stage games, or a more formal event? All professional emcees in Singapore have their unique hosting style. Some are more ‘playful’ and offer more stage games than others. When reviewing these stage games, it is also important to let your chosen emcee know your audience’s level of comfort based on your past experiences. Will your colleagues be willing to go up on stage when it’s game time, or will most of them pretend to take an ‘extra’ toilet break to avoid being called up on stage? Do you have conservative bosses who frown at ‘dirty’ jokes or would they understand it’s a night out for everyone to let their hair down? Ask your emcee to give some examples of stage games that they will play, and share with them your concerns if you have any before your event.

Don’t Go For The Biggest Name

One of the biggest mistakes we’ve seen clients make is they simply hire the most popular emcee they can get their hands on without considering any of the points above. Just because an emcee is famous doesn’t mean they are suitable for your event. Always remember, all events are different and a host that works for one event may not work for yours. It is very risky to simply pick and emcee because “my friends say he’s good” or “he’s super popular” because his style may not work for your audience and event requirements.
