Office Olympics – A fun way to get everyone involved in your corporate function is to host your own Olympics. You can plan for some fun activities and competitions and give out rewards and incentives to try and influence people to join in. Some examples of activities you can include: Guessing how many chocolates are in a jar, a competitions based on how many countries people can name, or how many star-jumps they can do…the games list is endless!
Food Trucks – If your event is held in the outdoors, have a look at hiring a food truck to cater your event. There are many varieties of foods and desserts that are now mobile and can cater your crowd, whether your attendee list is large or small.
Design a Snapchat filter for your event – Designing your own Snapchat filter is simple and there are apps that can help you, if digital design is not your thing. Once you have designed a Snapchat filter, you submit the design, location and time of your filter and wait for Snapchat’s approval (this is usually 1 business day). If your filter gets approved, your guests are now able to use the Snapchat filter and this provides a fun way for your guests to engage with your brand and provides your event extra promotion!
Celebrate an obscure holiday – Have your attendees / co-workers suited in Star Wars costumes on May the fourth. You can also choose other pop cultural holidays to celebrate such as Unicorn Day (April 9) and Talk Like a Pirate Day (September 19).
