As the holiday season comes into full swing, don’t forget the most important people on your nice list — your clients! Hosting a client reception is a great way to say thank you for a wonderful year. Here are 3 Tips for Hosting a Year End Client Reception.
Make a List, Check It Twice
Planning is an important aspect of hosting a successful reception. Marketing experts recommend getting started as soon as you can. Grab your best event enthusiasts and assign team tasks. Locking down a venue, organizing refreshments and entertainment, getting the word out, and designing your space are just a few of the boxes your teams will need to check off. Procrastination putting a tangle in your tinsel? Don’t fret. Our best-in-class customer service staff are here to help!
Create Your Space
When you’ve been in business for 35 years, you learn a thing or two about throwing a party. There’s no cookie cutter recipe for showing appreciation. From small businesses to hosting your own annual client appreciation conference, equipping your venue with tents, seating, and tables sets the stage for big ideas. Consider adding interactive food and drink stations like a custom cocktail bar, snow cone flavor buffet, or a fondue fountain. An array of high quality products, from winter wonderful glassware to professional lighting, are available to bring out the finer points of your space.
Client Reception Entertainment
Keep the mood lively and engaging by adding photo booths, contests, and more! Out of fresh ideas? Try a fresh scent instead with an aroma DJ. The latest trend to hit corporate gatherings, aroma DJ’s deliver more than beats. A blend of essential oils and incense can set the tone of the evening and give your guests a breath of fresh air. With a wide availability of products, the possibilities are endless.
Remember, our clients build us up and keep us striving year after year. A little gratitude can go a long way in making 2019 your best year yet!
