The entries have been judged, the venue has been booked and the winners have been announced. Your awards ceremony will soon be underway and there is so much to be done. But where do you start? What features or ideas are going to ensure your awards ceremony gives you wide exposure and is a night to remember for guests? We’ve put together some ideas that will add prestige, pizazz and recognition, ensuring your awards ceremony is both fun and memorable.
Choose A Theme Related To Your Awards Programme
Your guests are likely to forget a generic awards ceremony, so try to choose a theme that reflects your awards programme and that will stay in their minds for months or even years to come. Think masquerade ball, black tie formal, under the sea or Vegas casino. These are basic themes that you can add your own unique touches to.
Make Your Invitations Count
Your invitations will typically be the first impression your guests have of your event. When every detail counts, you’ll want your invitations to stand out. Your invitations should ideally be of a unique design that reflects your brand or your specific event. They should spark interest and excitement, contain clear information and leave guests anticipating a very special night to come.
Maximise Your Seating Arrangements With Long Tables
While circular tables are popular at awards nights, they can take up too much space which is a problem when you need to accommodate guests, winners and judges. Our banqueting tables solve this problem beautifully allowing you to seat more guests and also free up space for photographs and other features you would like to include in your event.
Make An Impression With Your Centrepieces
If you are looking for a centrepiece alternative that breaks away from traditional floral features, there are some great ideas that will get everybody talking. From glowing neon displays to shimmering candles, your centrepieces will look absolutely beautiful once the lights go down.
Building A Budget That Works
Awards ceremonies aren’t the cheapest events to stage. You will usually be expected to pay for the whole evening including food and beverages. However, some awards organisers do charge a small fee to their guests. After all, an award can bring recognition to winners that they may otherwise not have achieved. Ticketed awards ceremonies are becoming more and more commonplace and could be the answer to your budget woes.
