Making Your Company Events Fun And Memorable: What You Should Know

Posted on: 7 April 2015

When you are put in charge of your company's event planning in Toronto, you feel an immense amount of pressure to make them fun and memorable for your coworkers and employees. After all, more often than not, staff feels obligated rather than enthusiastic and excited when it comes to attending corporate events. Your goal is to inspire them to be excited about company events and to enjoy their time and interactions with their friends and colleagues. So, get to know some of the elements that you can incorporate into your company events to make them both fun and memorable for your colleagues. 

Go-Karting

If you want to bring out the competitive edge as well as incorporate nostalgic elements into your corporate events, one of the best ways to do so is to go go-karting. Go-karting can bring out the playful, competitive fire in staff allowing them to hop into a mini race car and zip around the track. 

Go-karting is also highly nostalgic for many adults. They can recall going to an adventure park or the like with their families as children and learning how to steer and drive the go-karts. This nostalgia will make the company event more memorable and meaningful to many of your staff. 

You can even use go-karting as a team-building exercise, dividing staff into two or more teams and having competitive racing events with prizes to further encourage participation and engagement. 

Mini Golf

Whether you want to take your company event to a mini golf course, an amusement park that has both mini golf and other attractions, or even if you want to bring the mini golf course to you, you can. Mini golf is yet another activity that inspires both competition and nostalgia. 

It is also an activity that is friendly to people of all ages and walks of life. It is active but not strenuous, and it is competitive but not overly so. Portable mini golf courses can be purchased or rented for your company event so that you can stage the event at any location you would like, even in the office parking lot for an impromptu get-together. 

Old-Fashioned Carnival Games

Sticking with the theme of nostalgia and innocent fun, you can also rent or purchase a wide variety of carnival games and activities. Activities like ring toss or the milk bottle toss are fun distractions that most people would enjoy trying their hand at.

You can even set up an entire carnival design for the company event with different booths and hand out tickets at the "gate" for each person to use as they please. Of course, don't forget the prizes for game winners if you want the carnival experience to be authentic.

So, when you are planning your next company event, be sure to keep these ideas in mind. You want your employees to enjoy these events and be enthusiastic about them.
