If you have been tasked with organizing an event for your company and you have been given a very small budget to organize the event, you will have to come up with creative ways of hosting an event that does not cost too much of money. Some of the many things that you will need to organize include the entertainment for the night, the food for the night and of course a venue for the night.
Low cost venues
You can choose to have the event at your own office if the guests at the event are only your own employees. By hosting the event at your own office, you will be able to save a lot of money and therefore you will have more money to put down on other aspects of the event. If your office is big enough to accommodate all of the people attending the event, then it is important that you try to have it there.
As for entertainment, you can choose to host a talent show where all of the employees at your office get a chance to show case their own talents. You can have everything from cookery to Samba dance on display which will not only entertain all of the people present at the event but it will also be a lot of fun for the people participating. If there are certain people who are great cooks, you can ask them to have a small action station where they can cook some nice snacks for the people present.
You can have many forms of entertainment from Samba dancers to traditional dancing to even singing. If you get each member of your team to perform something, you may not need to spend any money on entertainment at all. In fact, you can make it a competition where the best entertainment act wins a prize or a trophy for their efforts which will serve as motivation for people to take part in the competition.
You might even consider having a small cooking competition that can be doubled up as a team building activity where each member of your staff is put in to a team and the team is required to make a certain dish within a given budget and a limited amount of time. This will not only serve as a challenge and a team building activity but it will also provide your event with some food that will help to lower your overall bill and cost. This is the best way to keep the cost low.
