Seasonal Events: Planning Events in Summer: #3 of 4

This is the third in our 4-part blog post series of planning events in a particular season (See our previous post, Seasonal Events: Planning Events in Spring: #2 of 4.)

A summer event is always a highly popular option for a corporate event.

Why? 

Because the sun is shining, you can have an outdoors event (and at night as well) and you have an enormous range of venues to choose from. And let's face it, everyone is in the mood to party!

 

Do

  • Be flexible if your favourite venue is booked out - have you thought about booking a mid-week event to secure the venue of your dreams (and save money?
  • Consider organising a corporate event around Christmas-time if you'd like to invite your clients' or employees’ family to maximise the holiday spirit!
  • Remember that mid-February summer events are more expensive for floristry thanks to the rocketing price of roses and so on at Valentine’s Day
  • Allow time for items to be custom-made, especially if the firm closes for several weeks over Christmas/New Year

Don't

  • Think you're restricted to beach themed events - you could have a wonderful outdoor festival event theme, in a park or garden, or set your corporate event in an historic venue
  • Delay in securing your venue - competition is fierce for summer events
  • Dismiss a summer corporate breakfast - the sun rises early and it's less hot for clients - plus it frees them up to attend lunch, cocktail and late night parties
  • Forget to give your clients lots of lead time and send the invitations (electronic or paper version) early to ensure a high rate of guest attendance for this busy event season

Why are autumn events such a good seasonal event option?

Autumn celebrations offer warm days and crisp evenings and seem especially made for rustic affairs in barns, vineyards, orchards and farms with the bounty of harvest time.

What a wonderful theme for corporates to celebrate their bounty and good fortune with clients.

After November, did you know March and May are the next most popular months for the event industry in Australia?

In the closing days of winter, everyone is excited about the upcoming spring weather and all the exciting events to attend. As an event organiser, spring gives the biggest choice of flowers coming into bloom then and spring symbolises growth - a wonderful metaphor for a business. The days are getting longer and hey, even if it's a cliche, in spring a single person's thoughts do turn to meeting someone so everyone is in the mood to circulate and accept invitations.

If you haven't yet decided when to organise your next corporate event, there are several things to consider. 

Some important seasonal event factors may include choice, budget, location, type of venue space, availability, holidays and important events, weather conditions and venue suitability for the seasonal theme.
