Private speedboat transfers along the Thames, celebrity keynote speeches, Michelin starred dining, treasure islands or giving back with the perfect CSR cause; the “wow” factor is what all event planners are continuously striving for.
With regular “educational trips” to various destinations and venues, the First Event team is experienced, however even so, every client challenges us to go the extra mile and we push ourselves every time to deliver.
The “wow” factor is intangible but there are three main areas of event planning you can look to for that elusive “wow” for your events.
A strong and unique theme to your events can engage and intrigue your guests or employees. The intrigue in how your event will fit in with your theme, combined with the prominent delivery of the theme within the event can be magical if executed well.
2. Surprise elements
Surprise elements are without a doubt one of the most effective ways to incorporate “wow” into your events. Changing transfer arrangements to private speedboats or vintage cars, transforming evening dinners into unforgettable experiences or even surprise visits from famous celebrities just touch upon the possibilities out there.
3. New experiences
Experiencing something new and enjoyable will always remain with you as a memory and a “wow” factor. Could you forget painting a children’s school in Africa, playing team camel polo in the desert or even experiencing the thrill of driving a Formula One car. Offering once in a lifetime experiences to your guests or employees gives them so much more than the experience. The memory and the association with your brand or company will be everlasting.
