If you are planning an activity, team building or other corporate events, having a checklist can be helpful. By using a checklist you ensure that important items will not get overlooked or forgotten. Here are a few things that you need to ensure are on your checklist. Keep in mind that a checklist will vary somewhat depending on whether you are planning an activity, team building or other types of corporate events your checklist may vary from event to event. These are just the bare bones items that are absolutely essential for any event.

The first thing to think about is your venue. This is the place where the event will take place. You need to think about whether it is large enough for the number of guests that you are going to be inviting. Keep in mind that a venue can be much too large as well as much too small. You want to make sure that your guests do not rattle around a large venue if the guest list is going to be kept quite small.

You should also think about what will be taking place during the event as this can influence the kind of venue you will choose. A team building activity will often call for very different surroundings than a corporate dinner or celebration would.

You may want to think about what your guests will be eating. It is a good idea to book a caterer that you know and trust well in advance of any event. If you keep several names on file you should be able to find someone who can cater your event regardless of the style or number of guests that are being invited.

If you are hosting a formal dinner you need to make sure that there are tables, chairs, dishes, cutlery and glassware for each person. The plates and utensils that are needed will vary depending on the kind of event that you are planning. A company barbeque may have different needs than a formal sit down dinner would. By ensuring that the venue can supply them or that you have booked a provider to rent them to you it should be easy to get the items you need to round out your event.

If you are giving out prizes you may also want to ensure that you have someone who can provide these items. If they are being engraved you need to find a quality engraver as well as high quality items that you can hand out in a timely fashion.

For many people, their work schedule is too hectic to allow them to take care of these details. In this case, hiring a professional party planner or event planner will be able to help you. If you are thinking about hiring someone you should think about one who has experience planning corporate functions. These can be quite different than social events although some of the elements are the same. You should also make sure that the planner has enough experience that they will be able to handle all of the details and only need a certain amount of input from you.
