Want to know what all the smart people are doing in the world of events next year? Get the jump on some of the latest trends you might want to incorporate in you next business event.
- EVENTS WILL BECOME MORE EXPERIENTIAL
- MAKING MORE OF THE OUTDOORS
- INCREASE IN TEAM DEVELOPMENT EVENTS
- VENUES SHOULD PROVIDE MORE THAN JUST SPACE
One of the big trends of 2017 was a move towards more experiential led events. People no longer want to just sit in a conference room the whole time. Organisers want to create an experience their delegates will remember. Maybe you could surprise your group with lunch on the water or try your hand out at kayaking, karaoke or cocktail making? Talk to the team at The Waterfront they’ll be happy to work with you to create an experience your staff will remember.
Hosting some breakout sessions outside has become more and more popular and looks like continuing into 2018. The change of atmosphere can contribute to better engagement and also promotes a healthy lifestyle and work environment. The Waterfront has plenty of options for breakout incentives or team building exercises from their open-air deck, an adjacent waterfront park or the marina itself.
Looking at team dynamics and individual personality types, managers are aiming to improve not only the productivity of employees and teams but also the interactions between people, to support greater mental wellbeing. There has been a growing emphasis and implementation of team development and team building which will continue into 2018.
In 2018 people want to work with venues who can provide a tailored experience that is just right for them. They don’t want to work with venues who just provide a space for the event, but rather ones that will be integral in creating an overall personalised experience for their staff. Businesses are relying more and more on the venue to help them bring their message and content to life.
The dedicated team at the Waterfront Function Centre will work with you every step of the way whether you are organising a training day, conference, seminar, product launch or presentation night. They can cater for intimate meetings of 10 or more to full seminar mode and will be able to provide a comprehensive package that will more than satisfy your needs.
