How to Plan Local Corporate Events for Providence Businesses

How to Plan Local Corporate Events for Providence Businesses

One of the biggest trends in recent years for corporate event planning is to take the team-building, workshop hosting, seminars, and networking opportunities offsite and away from the office building. While some companies still attempt hosting corporate events in an office conference room, the best results are achieved when the event is taken to a new location. Instead of flying your staff to a tropical location for what may prove to be a big waste of time and money, your best bet is to host your company’s events at a local conference center in Southeastern New England. In fact, you can host corporate events in Swansea, MA at the world-famous Venus de Milo, which is just a 20-minute drive from the heart of Providence. It is far enough away to provide all of the advantages of an offsite event, yet still close enough to be cost-effective for everyone involved.

Choose the Best Location

The location of the venue is important, as it needs to be convenient for your employees so you can maximize the time that you spend offsite and away from the office. However, the conference center that you choose also needs to have all of the amenities that you require to do all of the activities that you want to include for your big event. If you will have speakers, a workshop, or will be including a presentation, make sure to ask about audio-visual equipment and other technology options when you are hosting corporate events in Massachusetts. Venus de Milo has a wide variety of business-grade technology, audio equipment, and visual options that will help you put on a memorable presentation. Parking, restrooms, Wi-Fi connectivity, and space to host a luncheon, participate in team building exercises, and interact with co-workers should also be available, depending on your needs.

Memorable Food & Beverage Options
