Event Coordinators and Planners go through a rigorous planning process when it comes to executing any event.

Your perfect offsite event could not be made possible without the people in these positions, and they face a variety of challenges during the event’s planning process. Here are two of the greatest challenges event Coordinators or Planners face in holding an awesome corporate offsite event:

 

Budget

Communication is key when it comes to meeting the budget for an event. Event Coordinators are presented with a number of options to find the offsite space that suits the needs of your company or corporate event. With so many moving parts, one thing that can make an offsite go haywire is a miscommunication of the budget. Try to spend money on what brings the most value to the type of event or workshop being planned. In the end, corporate events are an investment, and attendees are working towards solving a relevant problem. To get the most of the event, be clear and concise with what you want to accomplish. Set goals and manage the expectations of the participants to keep everyone on track and working toward the solution you’re looking for.

Attendees

Attendees are the life of the event, literally. The purpose of any corporate event is to bring people together and work towards solving a common problem. Making sure the attendees show up, and stay focused and comfortable throughout the duration of the workshop is a difficult job to do. The environment of the event plays a huge role in its success. Find a space that stimulates conversation, collaboration, and boosts creativity while getting the most out of their time spent at the workshop.It is imperative to maximize the work output of those attending. Give the event some structure with a clear agenda and stick to it to keep everyone moving forward, but remember to incorporate team energizers and icebreakers to get people out of their seat, and comfort zone.
