Theme Ideas for Corporate Events and Away Days in Cheshire and Manchester

Friday, July 12th, 2013





Watching the wheel spinning

We were recently treated to a great example of how NOT to plan a corporate event, courtesy of the BBC’s The Apprentice. The episode’s most cringe-worthy moments included some sumo wrestling entertainment, complete with ‘fat suits’ at Team Endeavour’s army-themed event and a spot of tipsy wine tasting at Team Evolve’s school-themed event.

If watching that didn’t put you off planning your corporate event entirely, we have some great ideas for planning your next company away day or event in Cheshire or Manchester.

Themed away days can be a great success when they are done right. We’ve had experience providing entertainment and presentations at many corporate events so here’s our insight on what works well for an entertaining and worthwhile even for your team members:

Awards Ceremony

An awards ceremony always goes down a treat at corporate events in Manchester. You can theme a whole evening around an awards ceremony, complete with black tie dress code, drinks and canapés, or simply include a small awards ceremony as part of your staff away day.

Recognizing your staff for their input is a great way to improve staff morale and motivation. Our video jukebox system is just perfect for this, allowing you to produce an Oscars-style presentation complete with music and photographs of your team members.

Check out an example of our awards videos here.

Casino or Las Vegas Theme

Casino themes are also very popular for corporate parties and events. Recreating the glitz and glamour of a Las Vegas casino will be sure to result in an event that your employees will be talking about for weeks and is great for improving team building and staff camaraderie.

James Bond Themed Event

The Bond theme is another great idea that goes down a storm at staff parties and makes for a fun and memorable corporate event. Some ideas to include are stunt shows, Bond showgirls and themed music entertainment. You can even hire a Sean Connery or Bond villain lookalike for your event!

You can watch an example of one of our James Bond themed Video DJ presentations here.
