With Americans being back in the office, corporate events have made a strong comeback since 2020. Unfortunately, team outings and corporate events can sometimes feel well, like work. Studies have shown that many corporate events offer the same ole’ boring food, design, and lack of entertainment.
With that being said, you and your team can get away from the typical despairs of corporate life with some of our creative corporate event rentals and ideas. Blend in some new ideas from Live Chefs to luxurious tabletop rentals to competitive competitions that will have your guests and employees reliving the party! Planning a corporate event has never been easier in Charleston!
Cut The DJ – Invest In Entertainment For ALL:
Having entertainment at corporate events doesn’t need to be a live band or DJ for a big sit-down performance. We encourage the opposite. By having smaller entertainment selections, your co-workers and guests can have a private and special experience that’s more meaningful. At the end of the day, making co-workers feel special and appreciated is the main objective of a corporate event.
“At SAFE I love to come up with hip, fresh ideas at our corporate parties that incorporates all walks of life.” Says Lindsay Anderson, a corporate event organizer with over 10 years of experience. “I like to keep team members on their toes with surprises and high-end designs that keeps the entertainment flowing throughout the evening.”
During the companies last corporate event in Charleston, Lindsay customized each teams’ tables and chairs to fit that branches taste. However, she didn’t stop there! Even the stunning glassware rentals were customized to fit the individual team’s taste.
Entertaining corporate event ideas to keep at the top of your list:
- Entertainment doesn’t need to be the traditional DJ or Live Band. Offer items to make your guests feel pampered, relaxed, and ready to party such as renting a vintage car they can sit in and take a picture with, shoeshines (Rent a fun Chair), and manicures.
- Speed artists have become extremely popular within the wedding industry. Why not have one at your corporate event? Maybe even an airbrushed temporary tattoo – I heard Karen’s gonna’ do the Mike Tyson face tat!
- Photo booths are a great way to capture the party and very easy to rent in Charleston! Step up your corporate event with newer, creative ways to take photos. Locate a company that offers 360 photo booths, VR experiences, or GIFs for your guests to share on social media. Are you kidding – Everyone loves a fun and funky photo.
