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 staff and encourage teambuilding.
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. There are a number of venues that host wine tasting around the UK and can put on a great experience for staff.
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
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.
Around the UK there are 100’s of corporate events companies that are able to offer advice, planning and event management to help you make your summer event a successful experience for your staff.
