If you’re recognising excellence within your company, then hosting a corporate awards ceremony is a great way to get everyone in one room for an evening of morale boosting recognition, laughter, and good times!
If you’ve sat through awards ceremonies before and felt like the evening hasn’t been planned properly or there’s a certain je ne sais quoi missing, we’re here to help you avoid that.
With our help, your awards ceremony is the perfect way to add a little cherry on top of the hustle and bustle that comes with the daily grind.
A Creative Name & Funny Awards
Because, who wants to be boring? When it comes to picking a name for the awards, don’t go for something forgettable. ‘Office awards’ or ‘Employee Recognition Awards’ are pretty mediocre and have probably been done a hundred times before. Reference something to do with your business or brand and remember to keep it humorous when it comes to some of the awards categories.
Location, Location, Location
Sure, if it’s going to be a lowkey affair, you can add some flavour to an internal small shindig in the office with props, photobooths and décor. BUT, for a killer corporate awards ceremony that actually gets the team excited and feeling motivated, choose a cool and quirky location off-site. A glamorous cause deserves to take place at a glamorous venue and the opulent Bond is the perfect place for an unforgettable affair.
Prizes & Real Awards
Sure, pieces of paper look great once they’ve been framed, but a real trophy in the shape of your company logo is a super cool way to make it feel like a ‘real’ awards ceremony – Oscars style. Hiring a professional photographer (or making sure someone’s on photo duty) means you’ll capture winners accepting their prizes and gives you content for social media purposes too. Win, win! Prize wise, vouchers and ‘experiences in Melbourne’ go a long way.
Branded Props & Entertainment
Party props are one way to get the party started and break the ice (along with shots of tequila…). We love the idea of photo booths with fun props for everyone to get involved with. How about a red carpet for guests to walk before the event starts? You’ll also want to keep everyone entertained, and a comedian is a perfect way to secure some laughs and eliminate any awkward silences.
When it comes to planning a standout awards show, there’s certainly a lot to think about. One of the most rewarding kinds of events that should be executed with style and impeccable attention to detail, your corporate awards ceremony could truly help you achieve your business goals.
From inspiring your employees to generating press coverage and significant revenue, hosting a corporate event like this is definitely worth your time and effort.
