Since the pandemic began, we’ve all had to adjust to the “new normal.” Now that we’re returning to in-person events, what does that look like? How have corporate event and retreat venues adjusted to address concerns of health and safety? Further, how will new attitudes towards corporate responsibility and work itself impact businesses and meetings? Here are three event trends worth noting in 2024.
Businesses should tread lightly when easing back to in-person events
There’s no doubt that in-person interaction is making a comeback, but some people are still nervous. Respect this by considering social distancing when you’re choosing a venue and providing sanitation stations to those in attendance. It’s also wise to look into hybrid events, creating a mix of in-person and virtual experiences.
Consumers are focused on corporate responsibility and sustainable business practices
When you’re planning an event, bear this in mind. Consider recycling and reusing things like décor, props, and furniture, and look for ways to make your event more eco-friendly. Think about how you can add social value or give back to the community in conjunction with your event, perhaps through donations or free lectures and workshops. Choose a corporate event venue rental that’s in close proximity to your offices or your employees’ homes, to reduce driving and the resultant pollution.
With an eye on work-life balance, more employees are turning in their resignations
You may discover that you’re having difficulty finding and retaining talent in the current climate. How can you better meet your employees’ needs, prioritizing their personal health, social needs, and mental health? Look for ways to treat employees with respect and offer innovative benefits while promoting a healthy and engaging corporate culture. Events can be a big part of this, giving employees an outside-the-office experiences that affirms their value to the company and allows them to relax and unwind in a unique and inspiring corporate event party and meeting venue.
