3 Corporate Event Trends

Mandy Volpe - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

Staying on top of trends is crucial in the meeting world. You want to ensure that you are engaging attendees, especially the millennials that are becoming more present in the meeting arena these days. Here are a few ideas to incorporate to transform your event this year.


Create gathering spaces for attendees to network in between sessions. Instead of high top cocktail tables, opt for plush couches with low coffee tables. The relaxed setting will provide a comfortable retreat for attendees to strike up conversations with new colleagues. The lounges are also great spaces for attendees to spread out their belongs in between sessions to review meeting notes before launching into the next session.

Spicy Cuisine

Consider adding Siracha to your menu for the event. Siracha brings a heat of flavor and creates a punch for any catered meal. Pair the Siracha flavors with international cuisine or simply include as a dipping sauce for the main course. This addition will certainly please the meeting attendees who pride themselves on being "foodies".

Interactive Guest Experiences

Allow your exhibitors to create guest experiences beyond the typical tradeshow booth. Sponsors can opt to have magicians greeting attendees at the front door with business cards intermixed with playing cards. The idea is to create memorable moments through interactive experiences. This will result in higher satisfaction ratings for sponsors for their return on investment in your meeting.
