Private Function VenuesHow to Choose an Exciting Theme for Your Next Function
Choosing the right venue for your business event is critical, but so is choosing a fitting theme that generates buzz among attendees. The theme ties in closely with the private function venue you hire. After all, you’ll have to work within the venue’s framework and your own budget. It just makes it even more important to choose the perfect venue that provides you with the freedom and flexibility to bring your vision to life.
Aspects that support your theme include the lighting and interior design. Once you identify the key objectives for the event, it’s time to choose a memorable and identifiable theme that complements your company’s brand. The event’s theme should be in sync with your stated objectives, be it “Don’t Stop Believing” or “Back to the Future,” or whatever the case may be, to boost camaraderie among your attendees. Let’s take a look at creating a successful and enduring theme for your next event.
It’s All in the Tag Line
Deciding on a tagline is surprisingly important, as it sets the theme, and is the centrepiece idea which your MC and other presenters will focus on. Your tagline also needs to reinforce the key messages of the event, and help solidify a clear call to action.
Adopt a Lighting and Colour Scheme
Whether you’re opting for warm and uplifting colours like red, orange, green and gold, or cool and sophisticated pallets like blue, black and silver, the colours should complement the feeling that the theme evokes. Beautiful lighting can also greatly enhance the mood of your event. The amount of light in a room is proven to affect emotions. Soft light diffuses emotional responses, while inducing relaxation. Bright light heightens emotional responses and alertness.
Whether you choose texture lighting, monogram, pin-spot or up-lighting, our expert event co-ordinators can help you enhance your theme through breathtaking lighting schemes. When used well, it can have a great impact on the ultimate success of your event. Don’t underestimate the impact that carefully selected and executed lighting can have on the success of your event.
Check Your Calendar
Obviously, one of the biggest challenges for hosting a function is deciding on a date that suits most people. Chances are high that it will be impossible to choose a date that absolutely everyone can agree on, so democracy wins in this instance. The date that is most convenient for getting everyone in the same room should work well.
It also serves you well to choose a private function venue that has auxiliary amenities within easy reach of it, to boost the convenience for your attendees. By this, we mean selecting a venue that has hotels and guesthouses within easy reach of it, should guests want to stay over for the night and not drive back home straight after the event ends. Or a venue that is within easy reach of popular public transport networks for those who want to make use of them.
Our private function venue meets all of these requirements. We are centrally located in Pretoria, and our venue is surrounded by the premier accommodation providers that the city has to offer. Thanks to our central location, we are also easy to get to whether you’re driving by car, shuttle or taxi. These are only a few of the reasons why we remain one of the top function venues in Pretoria.
