Top tips for building your business through events and how to hold them

It can be challenging to find new ways to build your business and connect with new people. 

At A1 business forums, we believe that holding events is the most effective way to grow your business and network.

Why throw a business event

Throwing an event or party helps expand your business as they help you increase customer awareness and network with useful assets, as well as create networks with your clients, helping you create a better relationship with them.

Events in any form are a networking opportunity. Networking at business events can be particularly useful as you can gain new customers from already existing clients bringing new people along.

You can improve your customer loyalty through these events as they prove to your clients that you want to give back and appreciate their loyalty. These events also offer networking opportunities to your clients as they get the chance to meet and build connections with each other.

How to throw a successful event

  • Planning

Planning is the most important part of the event. If there is no strategy, you will not succeed in creating a sophisticated, yet engaging event.

The best way to plan your function is to hire a professional party planning company to come in and do it for you. They will discuss with you the aims for the event and pitch an idea, working closely with you to create a party that combines your needs with their expertise.

  • Catering

Catering is another way that you can make it a success. Hiring a corporate catering company that offer a range of menus will make your event a success as it shows you put thought and time into making your guests feel appreciated.

Not only this but if you choose a good quality company that offer a range of services and high-quality food and beverages, your guests will remember the event and enjoy it.

  • Inviting the right people

Inviting the right people is often the hardest part. You want to invite people you know you can rely on to make sure the event runs smoothly. Whilst it is important that you have people you can trust at your event, you will want to invite new people in order to gain more awareness for your business.

The best way to do this is to formally invite your guests through RSVP and have a guest list on the day.
