Party Planners Can Transform a Dull Company Picnic into a Hit If one is tasked with planning a company picnic, the pressure is on to make the event memorable. Not everyone likes planning a corporate party, but there are some event planners who know how to turn a picnic into a fun day for everyone. It’s a good idea to take some time comparing event planners to see which offer a good fit for one’s corporate culture. Depending on what type of party one wants to plan, there are event planners that can not only make it special, they can take on the entire party planning process. Many people would find it a relief to be able to hand the entire party planning process over to someone else. If that partner is an event planning specialist it’s almost certain that the event will come off without a hitch and feature entertainment and games that will fit the participants’ interests. For example, if one is interested in casino parties, there are planners who know how to set up events with a fun casino theme. Maybe a western party theme is more in line with the company culture. In that case there are a lot of fun games and attractions one can rent, such as a mechanical bull. If a colorful party is what’s needed for people who may be bringing their kids along, many planners can rent out an array of inflatables and bounce houses to keep children entertained for hours. Sometimes a really active party theme can be a hit. Party planners often have some unusual and challenging games and activities for these types of parties. One can rent portable rock climbing walls and laser tag equipment which can be great for conducting contests at the picnic. Planners can even rent out traditional dunk tanks so picnickers can have fun watching their friends and family get a good drenching! Once one settles on a party planning company it’s usually pretty easy to get the preparations under way for a company picnic. The planners will ask a number of questions about the venue and the attendees so the planning can be customized for that particular event. As one discusses the details with the planner, it’s a good idea to ask if any discounts apply if one rents several games for the party. If one decides to leave the entire planning process to the event company, then it’s important to find out the full extent of the company’s services, i.e. do they set up, take down, man the games and attractions and clean up after the event. It can be worth the cost to
pay a party planner to handle the entire picnic entertainment program so one can join in the fun on the day of the event. About the Author: John Templeton offers his expertise on event planning for company picnics taken from his years working for a corporate event planner.
