Here at Story, it has been great to be returning to the office for our weekly team days and to meet up with our colleagues at Venue Search London. It has reminded us all of the value of spending time discussing event briefs and the current challenges in a face-to-face environment.
With many of our clients staging gradual or full returns to their offices over the summer months, we believe that these “back to normality” moments are worthy of some celebration. Over the past eight years we have delivered some memorable office installations and our creative event design team are well versed in delivering engaging events at clients’ premises, whether it be a ‘Welcome Back’ reception or a Christmas celebration.
You might be considering hosting both internal and client events in your own offices, but are unsure where to begin. This is where our experience delivering complex and creative office installations comes into play!
So, below we have outlined five reasons to choose an office installation for your next event…
Safety and Security
In the current climate, having complete control over a chosen venue certainly has its benefits. From a safety perspective you are not only able to wholly dictate access but can also rest easy in the knowledge that your own teams can prepare the event environment to your exact specifications. This can encourage guest confidence and build attendance figures.
After a period of time which has turned most people’s world upside down, hosting a reunion in your office delivers a sense of familiarity. This allows guests to turn up to their transformed office space, completely relaxed and ready to engage with colleagues in a familiar environment.
Branding and Creativity
Whether you’re looking to hold a corporate networking drinks reception or a team building event to boost morale, office installations are a fantastic option. With the ability to move furniture at will, you can determine the flow of the space, taking guests on a unique journey.
Along the way you have the choice to fully brand each area, or if you’re exploring a creative route, you have the ability to take employees out of the day-to-day and into a fully themed or immersive experience.
Travel is also a key consideration. Asking employees to take a regular journey to their Christmas party at your office will limit interactions and remove an element of unknown. Therefore, guests can arrive and feel comfortable immediately.
Furthermore, with the travel time also significantly reduced, attendees can go from home to well-deserved celebration in a matter of moments, ensuring the party atmosphere it retained for as long as possible.
Office installations have a number of cost saving opportunities. Most obviously, you’re saving on any venue hire fees and are not restricted by minimum spends. Any in-house security systems or catering facilities within the office space can also help to reduce costs.
Budgets always play an important role in delivering the best possible event for our clients. The office install is a proven cost-effective approach because it is incredibly flexible and allows us to adapt according to your event priorities.
Reunited and it feels so good!
We can’t wait to see all of our Story team’s smiling faces at the same time soon and hope that in-house events will be the first step in reuniting teams across the country.
