5 Ways To Plan a Smooth Networking Event

Have you been tasked with putting together a networking event and don’t know where to start? We have you covered! In this article, we’ll show you five ways to plan a smooth function that everyone will enjoy.

Get Clear On the Purpose

Before you can start planning, it’s essential to fully understand the purpose of the event. Is the goal to attract new clients or to encourage mingling among other departments in your company? Whatever the reason is, you can’t properly plan the venue or guest list until you first know what you’re trying to achieve.

Secure the Perfect Location

Of course, you’re going to need a suitable location for your networking event – one that will have all the facilities you need and fit the number of guests you plan to invite. And to find a venue that will impress, we recommend booking as early as possible since many places fill up months in advance, especially around the holidays. If you’re not familiar with any local venues, try asking your colleagues and friends to see if they can recommend any. Once you’ve found a few places that fit the bill, you should visit them in person and evaluate all of their services before you make a decision.

Our Favourite Wedding Catering Themes

The menu always tops the list when it comes to the most important components of your wedding day. And remember, it’s your special day, so think about the type of catering theme that represents you and your partner best. To help get you inspired, here are a few of our favourite wedding catering themes for you to consider for the big day.

Dressed Up Comfort

Everyone loves classic, hearty comfort food. But, of course, the wedding day is all about the presentation as well as the taste. So start to think of your favourite comfort classics that you can ‘button up.’ You can dress up mini tacos, or serve up classic fish and chips in fancy rolled up newspaper cones, or even serve up mini shot glasses of beer alongside your favourite sliders and gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches. Whatever your comfort favourites are, go mini and get creative to incorporate them into your big day easily.

Brunch

Many couples are now opting for daytime weddings as oppose to evening times since it’s easier on the budget, which is why brunch style menus have become increasingly popular. And who doesn’t love a good breakfast and brunch spread? With this wedding catering theme, you can really get creative by serving mimosas, caesars, a pancake bar, an omelette station, pastries, and any of your classic breakfast favourites.
