Corporate Event Planning Key Terms
Know the terms to help your next corporate event run smoothly
Corporate event planning can be a large task and involves many details both large and small. In order to plan a successful corporate event, you must know some basic terms of the trade. Educate yourself on the basics starting with event budget and event venue. To ensure that your corporate event goes off without a hitch, become fluent in more detailed terms such as pipe and drape, talent, site management and signage.
Event budgetOne of the most important aspects of corporate event planning is the event budget. An event budget is a thorough plan detailing the estimated costs and the actual costs of all aspects of your event.
Pipe and drapePipe and drape is a metal frame in which thick fabric can be draped over and used to separate your event into different areas, block off certain areas from your guests and add splashes of color to enhance the decor of your event.
TalentUsed to spice up corporate events, talent is a person or group hired to perform, entertain, greet guests or demonstrate products.
Site managementUsing site management takes some of the stress off of you during your corporate event. Site management is a person or company designated to be at the event venue and oversee all aspects of the site, including setup, equipment and any additional needs that might arise.
SignageIn order to communicate with your guests, you need signage. Signage means specific signs that are created for an event to give attendees directions, information or to promote something.
