Choosing to host an off-site company meeting or corporate event usually stems from a need for team bonding and innovative thinking outside your normal parameters. Whether you’re planning an event for 10 people to 2,000, you want your attendees to feel inspired and free to think creatively. Knowing how to design an inspiring meeting space may not be in your repertoire, but you’re already on the right track if you’ve reached out to the event experts at Southfork. Here are a few tips to get you started.
Add Your Company’s Personal Touch
Most companies stand for something beyond what they sell. Or maybe that’s what you’re meeting to figure out! It’s important to add those meaningful nuances that your employees will recognize in the meeting space. For example, if your company sells shoes and believes in inspiring customers to walk outside their comfort zone, you might display images around the room of people doing things outside their comfort zone wearing your shoes.
Offer Snacks And Refreshments

Do A Technology Dry Run
Unless you’re a stellar improviser, nothing kills the mood like a technology fail. Our event experts recommend doing a dry run of all the technology tools that you will be using. This will ensure a continuous flow of your event and keep the inspiration level high. Furthermore, make sure you have wifi details clearly posted so people aren’t constantly asking for the password.
