An Inside Look
In August, I started my internship with Mary Isabel Events. One of the biggest projects we worked on was a styled photoshoot that took place back in October. For this styled photoshoot we put together numerous looks including a Spring, Fall, and Winter Wedding look, a cocktail hour, and a corporate look.
I had the opportunity to take the reins on the corporate look. I knew when putting together this look I wanted to string away from a meeting in a conference room with little to no interaction. I wanted to add elements of fun and comfort into a corporate event. The first thing that comes to mind when I think of a corporate meeting or event is a fun, welcoming and inclusive environment. I executed this idea by adding in elements such as high top tables, a buffet, and welcome bags.
There is no better way to get people to mingle with everyone than taking away a sit down dinner and making an open floor plan with room to bounce around. A buffet adds to the inclusive atmosphere that a corporate event can bring.
What’s better than a free gift? Today one of the best parts of an event is the swag you can potentially leave with. Whether it’s a t-shirt, a coffee mug, a phone case, or a gift card, “if it’s free it’s for me” is the saying most people will go by.
Corporate events are something I have gained a great deal of interest in within the last year. In a previous blog post I discussed three new elements you can add to your corporate events. Those being, pop-up giveaways, luxury meetings, and digital/interactive canvases. Having this opportunity with Mary Isabel Events to put together a corporate look for a styled photoshoot gave me the experience I needed to learn more about what elements to add and take away from corporate events, along with researching more of these new and upcoming trends I can later use.
