Corporate events play a vital role in enhancing customer relationships and advancing sales cycles in companies of all sizes. These include events organized by an enterprise to engage with existing customers (user conferences), prospective customers (seminars and road shows), and employees (retreats, sales kickoff meetings).
However, planning a corporate event is a challenging, complex undertaking. Organizers need to pay attention to an incredible number and range of details encompassing everything from pre-event promotion and the registration process to the venue, welcoming guests, the weather forecast, WiFi, the menu, logistics, sponsors and partners, sound and light systems, session content and speakers, data collection, and security.
