Summer event ideas can be a challenge to think up and organise.
The reason for having a summer event is to give your staff a chance to relax and let their hair down.
Business can be stressful, so breaking up the business year by having events does motivate and incentivise staff and encourage team building.
Summer events are a great opportunity to make the most of the British weather by getting staff outside and socialising.
There are lots of different ideas for hosting a summer event based around budgets:
Hosting a summer BBQ with games (football, rouders, cricket) can be organised internally without to much difficulty. If you wanted to spruce the afternoon up, you could hire a bouncy castle or ball pool.
This is affordable for most companies and coupled with great weather can be a fantastic event for companies that are keen to entertain to a budget.
Wine tasting is always good event to bring staff to.
A day at the races – popular with many businesses as it is a theme in itself.
BBQ at a country estate – there are many country estates and mansions that offer great locations for corporate functions, garden games, rowing on the lake and evening parties/discos
Sporting events are popular for staff functions, ranging from the Henley Regatta, Monaco Grand Prix and Lords Cricket Matches.
River cruises are popular for many companies; whether it is hiring a boat on the Thames or in any of the key cities in the UK.
River cruising offers a chance to have exclusive dining, parties and champagne receptions. Private Jet Hire would be the ultimate experience. Flying key staff from London to New York in a private jet offering fine dining and New York night life.
Depending on budget there are lots of options available for companies to have a Summer Event.
