5 ideas For Dinner And Dance Events To Wow Employees

Singapore, many corporates host Dinner and Dance events for their employees. These are fun, relaxed events meant for employees to interact with each other, and have a good time away from their workplace. Most corporates hire specialized professional event planners to host Dinner and Dance events, though some prefer planning and organizing in-house, to give a personal touch to the activities. In the pre-event planning stage, a budget is pre-decided for the event, and theme, scale and activities for the event are planned around the budget. If you are part of Dinner and Dance planning committee of an organization, or an event planner, you need to consider the following before deciding on the theme and activities: 1. Audience Demographics (gender, age-group, audience interests, willing to dress up for theme parties? language preferences, total number of attendees) 2. Event type (Formal/casual, outdoor/indoor, venue conditions and constraints, ballroom venue or casual pool party?) 3. Emcee (Bi-lingual? Able to connect with audience? Previous experience? Demo available?) Once you have narrowed down on the above factors, choosing a theme (masquerade/retro night/back-to-school/Harry Potter/Star Wars/Awards night) and planning the event logistics and activities (live shows, DJ night, Dinner and Drinks, etc) become easier.
