Every company will host an event at some point. Anniversary dinner, family day, product launch, festive celebration and so on. How to make it stand out? What makes it different from the year before?
Here’s five event trends you can consider.
Style 1: Go real fine
When the occasion calls for it, it is alright to indulge. Cater something that matches your brand standing and your guests’ profile. Ask your caterer to provide VIP treatment with butler-served canapes for cocktail, followed by an exquisite 4-course sit-down dining.
This works best for luxury brands which are celebrating major milestones or companies who are expecting esteemed VIPs.
Style 2: Authentically local
You cannot go wrong with hot favourites such as Kueh Pie Tee, Chicken Rice and Chilli Crab buns. Go for the perfect retro immersion by getting your caterer to bring together street-style backdrop and pushcart live stations.
This gives a more casual and fun setting, allowing more interaction among guests and room for creativity in terms of programme line-up.
Style 3: Guilt-free indulgence
Organising a health-centric event such as charity marathons or promoting healthy lifestyle within your company? A food truck that serves food under 500 calories is the thing for you. Waist-friendly and fuss-free, it is ideal for the healthy-conscious and those hoping to grab something quick.
Nevertheless, in view of space, food trucks are mostly engaged for outdoor events. It is also great for employee engagement events such as Family Day.
Style 4: Refreshing novelty
Surprise your guests by bringing the Japanese restaurant to them with a portable conveyor belt! Or, let your imaginations go wild and replace sashimi with off-the-menu cocktail dishes.
Style 5: Uniquely yours
Pay a little extra for something you can call your own. Request for menus with a twist– enjoy chicken rice in a roll, bandung on cupcakes, curry prata in a cup and more! Tell your caterer your desired theme and give them the free reign on customisation – from menus to buffet line set-up and crew uniforms.
