Most businesses will hold corporate events at the end of the calendar year to celebrate the Holiday season that starts just before Christmas. But holding various corporate events throughout the year can boost morale within a business. This can also improve motivation and happiness levels between staff and customers. Corporate events can also be a way to thank clients for their custom and allow them to meet the faces behind the company they conduct their service with.
A corporate event can act as a way to say thank you to customers, while also building strong relationships between a company and their customers. In order for your event to be successful and leave a good impression for all who attend, the entertainment needs to be memorable. A simple dinner may be all the budget allows for, but if you really want to show your employees and customers how valuable they are to your business, an event that entertains will be sure to leave a great impression on all. Here are five of the best corporate entertainment ideas to make your next function the talk of the company.
A progressive dinner can be an exciting way to visit a number of restaurants in your city, while indulging your senses to an array of culinary delights. The way a progressive dinner works is to invite guests to a set location for nibbles and drinks. From there guests are transported to the next venue for their entrée. After entrée is enjoyed, guests can be taken to a new restaurant for dinner, followed by another restaurant for coffee and dessert.
While the event sounds busy, it can be a memorable experience for all. It’s important to consider the transport needs to ensure guests can get to each venue together. Hughes Limousines offer luxury transport, which can be hired for the night to assist with your progressive dinner itinerary. The key for this itinerary to go off without a hitch is to ensure there is only a small distance between each venue. For time purposes, you may choose to have three venue visits instead of four.
The marketing theme and recent market research done by Gold Coast Tourism, Brisbane Marketing and Queensland Tourism is that visitors want to experience what the locals do. This includes uncovering hidden gems like rainforest walks, waterfalls, indigenous tours, night and day markets, beach tours and other such experiences that will be memorable.
Going on luxury tours with Hughes Limousines gives you the benefit of an experienced tour guide and professional chauffeur all in one. Our luxury tours are flexible and can be individualized to your tastes and preferences. For example a client might wish to stay at a certain location for longer or not visit someplace, which is listed, on the tour.

Treat your employees and clients to a winery day tour where they can play tourist for the day and enjoy discovering new local wines. Many wineries can organise a group booking where a guided tour can allow your guests to take in the scenery and learn how the wines are made. Samples of wines and platters of fresh local produce can make for a great lunch event. A chauffeur service can be used to visit a number of wineries in the area to cover a range of guests’ tastes. The transport service can ensure your guests aren’t tempted to drive under the influence of alcohol after tastings.
A visit to the local theatre allows employees and clients to get dressed up for a night of entertainment and fun. This type of entertainment event suits smaller groups as opposed to a larger group. Dinner before the show can ensure clients and employees get to mingle before being seated during the show. Consider an opera or theatrical show that will appeal to all tastes. Group bookings can usually be made directly with the theatre company. They may also have a local restaurant where they can organise a dinner reservation for your group.
Why not have an active event where employees can play a spot of golf against each other? Start the morning with breakfast at the golf club, then hire golf buggies and play a round of 9 or 18 holes depending on how long you wish the event to run for. Sports days allow for comradery between guests and this can boost healthy communication and morale. If golf doesn’t interest your employees, how about putt-putt, a fun, family-friendly game that doesn’t require a lot of skill to play.
If getting active doesn’t appeal to your corporate events team, why not organise a box to view a game of sport instead?
Organising transport for your guests and employees to a corporate event is beneficial for a number of reasons.
The number of guests invited to your corporate event will determine the type of service needed.
For intimate groups of 2 to 4 people, an executive or premium sedan may be considered. If you really want to impress, a stretch limousine is a great way to ride in style. Limousines can transport 6 to 11 guests.
For larger groups of 5 to 12 people, you may consider a people mover. If guests are flying in from interstate for your corporate event, you may want a people mover with a trailer for luggage.
If the group is larger than 11 guests, a luxury coach can seat 13 to 54 guests.
Once your automobile is selected, it’s important to choose a carrier that offers a friendly, yet professional chauffeur. Hughes Limousines offer a range of automobiles to suit your function and they would be happy to discuss your needs to suit your corporate entertainment ideas.
Transport is an important consideration when organising your corporate event. The transport can add to the event experience for guests. Contact Hughes Limousines for a reliable chauffeur driven service to assist with the guest logistics at your next event.
