How to make your event health-conscious

More people are focusing on their health and wellness than ever before. People want to move more and eat smarter, and to incorporate a healthy lifestyle into every aspect of their day.

These days, attendees at events expect organisers to provide them with improved options so that they can maintain their healthy lifestyle and habits. Therefore, events organisers need to adapt in order to offer health-conscious elements capable of keeping their guests on the straight and narrow.  Here are some of our favourite ways you can do that:

Choose the right venue

While this idea may initially suggest that you need to choose a venue with a gym or a multitude of health-based classes, it’s not essential. If your event is primarily focused on health and wellbeing, it may be better to choose a venue with these facilities so that they can accommodate all the activities or classes you wish to offer to your attendees.

However, if you’re just looking to include a couple of health-conscious activities or offer nutritious and healthy meals at your event, simply look for a venue that includes the amount of space you need or the right catering.

Create an active agenda

For modern and health-conscious lifestyles, staying still for an entire day can be difficult. If you’re holding an event for an active group of people, including some activity is a great way to maintain focus while also making the event fun.

If your event stretches over a couple of days, why not take some time out to explore your surroundings. If your event is situated in London, why not hire a bunch of “Boris Bikes” and take your attendees out to explore the city? Sightseeing is a fantastic way to both add some activity to your day and break up the event into manageable chunks.

If you want to add more activity to your event without heading outside, why not make things competitive? Set up a few exercise bikes and challenge your attendees to participate in teams, with a goal set up – whether that’s the fastest time they can set, the ability to power something, or even to make smoothies. Or why not go even further and set up an aerobics or dance class to get everyone moving.

Include healthy menu choices

Whether you’re planning on having your event fully catered or are simply going to provide food freebies for your attendees, keeping any food options healthy and nutritious is essential for a health-conscious event.

If you opt for a catered event, the first thing to realise is that health-conscious food doesn’t have to be limited to salads. Using locally sourced and nutritious ingredients can allow you to plan a menu that is far from dull. Beyond that, you can identify the nutritional benefits and details about the dishes being served so that your attendees can make informed choices.

If you aren’t planning on catering an event, offering snacks and drinks for your attendees can still be health-conscious and nutritious. Maybe include a fruit stand to help stave off any sugar cravings or give away protein balls or bars to keep people going through the day. However, if you’re buying products to give away instead of making them, always check the ingredients of the snacks. Avoid ones that include any additives and make sure to take into account any eating plans, allergies or intolerances.

You could even get in contact with health-focused food brands to offer a collaboration or sponsorship opportunity. Your event will be able to offer them brand exposure, and their contribution can help support your health-conscious agenda.

The Brewery Summer Party and Menu Tasting

On 8th August, award-winning events venue The Brewery welcomed 140 new and existing clients and agencies to the venue for a showcase focused heavily on their new food and drink offering.

Hosted in the venue’s two summer marquees, the first course was served picnic style with all the elements of the dish being placed on the table for guests to help themselves.

The next two courses were presented in a more traditional service style and comprised dishes including Mackerel with BBQ potato, charred cucumber, apple sauce, chervil, green oil and leek ash as well as Iberico pork belly with pineapple ketchup, parsnip puree, smoked carrots, purple octopus and dill oil.

Once guests had finished dinner they were taken to The Grubstreet Author for dessert and the after-party. The Cutting Room hosted a Champagne and fruit caviar bar as well as a live dessert station which saw The Brewery’s chefs start with an empty table and built it up with sweet treats as guests ate from it.

The Sample Room provided the main bar location in which guests were able to select any cocktail that they wanted, which was then created by the venues expert mixologists.

In The Pasteur Room a dessert canapés bar was set up with chefs personally preparing dishes for guests. This was complimented with a punch bar in which large glass pineapples we’re generously filled with a selection of vibrant and flavoursome alcoholic punches.

How to use LinkedIn for your event

Making use of social networks when marketing your corporate event is a crucial part of gaining visibility and brand awareness from your audience online. However, one social network that is often overlooked when it comes to advertising and promotion is LinkedIn.

As the “business version of Facebook”, it would be easy to assume that using LinkedIn to promote an event would work in the same way as other platforms. However, social networks like Facebook are primarily for personal use, so may not be the most receptive channel for a corporate event. There are some features on LinkedIn that differ from other platforms that can help your event reach the right audience.

LinkedIn Logo

Use the LinkedIn groups feature

LinkedIn groups is a great resource for companies looking to foster and encourage discussion around a number of topics. If you’re planning on using LinkedIn as a platform both before and after your event, setting up an open group that’s connected to your company page can be a great way to get your attendees chatting and discussing the topics of your event both before and after it happens.

Since you can invite people to join your group, you can also use this feature to encourage users to join in your discussions and potentially gain more attendees for your event in the run-up. After the event, utilise your group even further by posting transcripts or videos of the speakers at the event or any photos that were taken.

Post promotional messages

Your LinkedIn company page is a great way to spread the word about your event since people who are interested, and in your audience, are going to be following your page for updates. Publishing a series of posts in the run-up to your event, such as announcements about speakers who will be attending your event, updates about what your event will be offering, and promotions about booking tickets and attending, will raise awareness of your event.

While it’s easy to lose posts in a cluttered daily feed, by posting multiple times during the period of time before your event, you’ll be able to increase visibility of your posts and increase the probability of more of your audience seeing them.

Reach people through direct messages

LinkedIn has three different message options to reach users; inMail, connection messages and group messages. Each can be used in their own way to reach a user, but all can work to increase marketing and visibility of your corporate event.

For users that you are already connected to, messaging them through inMail is a great way to start a conversation on the topic of your event. If you know that they’re due to attend, talk to them about the opportunities at your event. If they’re not already signed up, create a message that will promote the event and the benefits of attending.

For users who you are not already connected to, send a message about your event to accompany your invitation to connect with them. Make sure that they’re from the right industry and specialisation, otherwise they’ll think that it’s a spam message.

If you’ve already set up a group for your event, or you have a company specific group, message users in the group to advertise the event. Don’t promote it too frequently though as it could be considered irritating and may dissuade people instead of encouraging them to attend.

Add your event to the LinkedIn events app

The LinkedIn events application is a perfect way to publicise your event and invite people to attend. You can create an event listing in the LinkedIn Events application and ask people to mark whether they’re attending. Since LinkedIn identifies the industry and job titles of users, you can target certain people through inMail and reach out to them.

Making an event listing also means that your employees can publicise the event on their own personal LinkedIn accounts since the listing can be shared on their statuses. You can also share the event listing in any other groups that you are a member of.

Five things to do as soon as you get engaged

New engagement ring with diamonds

Congratulations if you’re reading this blog because, chances are, you’ve probably just got engaged! Time is going to feel like a bit of a whirlwind in the next few days and months – there’s a lot to do and a lot of people to see. While that could be overwhelming, we’d like to invite you to take a breath and consider just these five things to start you off on your journey towards your wedding to the person you love.

Tell your friends and family

So, there’s a ring on your finger and after the celebrations with your partner, you’re probably bursting to tell your close friends and family about your engagement. While it may be tempting to snap a ring selfie, the last thing you’d want is for your mum to find out about your engagement from someone on Facebook instead of from you herself.

Therefore, make a list with your partner of all the people you’d both like to tell and take a couple of hours to call, Skype or Facetime your loved ones to let them know about the happy event. If your partner has taken the traditional route of asking your parents for their blessing before proposing, you can guarantee that your parents are waiting by the phone for your call.

Ring maintenance

In the next couple of weeks, your hands are going to get a lot of visibility as your friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances all want a glimpse of your brand-new engagement ring. In terms of practicality, unless your partner was extremely lucky, or you picked out your ring together, it’s common for there to be some resizing needed. You don’t want it disappearing off your finger because it’s slightly too loose, or for it to be uncomfortably tight.

Also, make sure to add your ring to your insurance policy, or get specific insurance for it. While no one plans to lose their ring, if something were to happen it’s good to make sure the costs are covered.

Finally, and this is definitely a pampering opportunity, why not treat yourself to a manicure? If so many people are going to be admiring your ring, the last thing you want is chipped nail polish to detract from its beauty.

Discuss a wedding budget

While you don’t need to start making any decisions yet, or even start planning much, it’s a good idea to at least have an idea of your budget so you know what kind of wedding you’d like to have.

Understanding what kind of savings you have available, whether you’ll be receiving any help from family members, or even just working out the amount you’d be willing to spend, can help make future planning a lot easier since you already know what you have to work with.

Also, even just discussing a budget with your partner can help you both begin to work out the ideas that you each have and any specific things either person would like to make sure are included in the big day – such as a particular venue, a certain band or a specific menu.

Consider venues

Don’t get worried – like we mentioned above, there’s no need to start actually booking anything yet. However, it is good to have a look around at any venues that you would consider, so that you can understand the capacity of the event space, whether they are registered for ceremonies, what features they offer, and which venues fit within your budget.

If you’re looking for a wedding venue in the heart of London that offers first-class cuisine, six different sized event spaces, the ability to host a wedding at the same location, and a skilled wedding planner to help you with the specifics, consider The Brewery. Explore our specialised wedding website, The Proposal, to find out more about what we offer.

Don’t forget to relax

In the face of so much planning and so many decisions, it can be difficult to remember that this is a celebration of your love and commitment to the most special person in your life. For that reason, make sure to take time to just relax and enjoy being engaged before throwing yourself into the wedding planning.

Make time for the two of you – whether that’s a weekend away, an engagement-moon, or a date night out. Do whatever you’d like to spend time with each other, enjoy the excitement of your engagement and look forward to your life together.

 

With an emphasis on originality, The Brewery is located in the heart of London and boasts a range of unique and adaptable spaces, full of character and each available to host your wedding ceremony and reception.

6 unique giveaways to put in your event goody bags

An event goody bag with name tagGiveaways are not only always well received at events, but are also a valuable marketing tool if chosen well. Gift your attendees with something that is perfectly suited to your target audience, and it will forever act as a constant reminder of both your company and your event.

That being said, it’s no secret that the more traditional giveaway items such as pens and USBs are proving a little tired. If you’re looking to excite your guests with your giveaways, here’s our advice on how to provide some seriously impressive swag at your next event!

1.      Virtual gifts

If you’re on the lookout for a relatively new idea, why not consider virtual goodies to give to your attendees? Guests who have travelled far to get to your event will appreciate this space-saving concept, as they won’t need to carry cumbersome gifts around whilst at the event or travelling home. Virtual gifts also offer a great opportunity to promote your sponsors, as well as any products you are marketing. Why not provide e-gift cards, ebooks, apps or gift codes – and don’t forget to explain exactly what the gift is and how to redeem it!

2.      Reusable bottles

As you’re probably aware, plastic bottles and other types of single-use plastic are posing a massive threat to the environment, and in the UK over 35 million bottles are used every day! As people become more aware of this issue, reusable bottles are quickly gaining popularity, and make a savvy and eco-friendly choice for your next event goody bag. An affordable giveaway that is practical, kind to the environment, and can be branded however you wish, they are an excellent choice for a giveaway and are sure to go down well at your event. Why not enhance the guest experience and fill them with drinks so they are ready to use straight away?

3.      Unique snacks and treats

Here at The Brewery, we love food, and know just how powerful it can be to boost engagement at a conference or event. Rather than just providing a branded tin of mints, think outside the box and provide something to get your guests talking. As well as creating a conversation starter, providing a tasty treat will always go down well with a crowd of hungry conference-goers!

4.      Device chargers

If you’re familiar with organising events, you’ll know all too well just how much attendees depend on their phones throughout the event. Whether checking their emails, tweeting, making notes, or looking up their schedule for the day, it’s likely that their batteries will almost be drained by the time lunch is served. Give out phone chargers, and you’ll be popular with your guests! This means your attendees can engage even more at your event by staying connected, and they’ll undoubtedly use the charger again after the event has finished, so they’ll be reminded of your brand long after the event has come to an end.

5.      Seasonal items

Seasonality is unique in goody bags, because let’s face it, it can be expensive to order items that might not be used all year round. However, because seasonal items are so rare, it could be that the investment pays off if you opt for them in your swag bags. For example, if you’re hosting an event in the summer, you could provide your guests with bright flip flops and beach towels. Sure, these might not be used whilst at the conference, but think about the exposure your brand will get when these get used at the beach, or on holiday – who knows which country they will end up in!

6.      T Shirts

T Shirts will always be popular swag items at events. Think about it – how many times have you seen free T Shirts and not picked one up? However, think twice before simply printing T Shirts with your logo. Who will really wear that? Spend a little more money on getting good quality T Shirts and consider the print carefully. Think about the audience who will be attending and what sort of design they would appreciate – how about a catchy slogan, quote or a stunning design? The possibilities are endless!

 

When it comes to putting together your event giveaways, you should put in as much thought as you would when coming up with your marketing strategy. The underlying reason to providing something in a goodie bag is not just to offer a freebie, it’s to connect with your audience and making their lives a little better.

If you’re looking for the perfect venue to hold your next event, consider The Brewery. Located in the heart of London, it’s ideal whether you’re hosting a small meeting, or a conference for up to 1,000 people. Get in touch with us today to find out more!

How is artificial intelligence impacting the events industry?

Artificial intelligence is a growing technological advancement in an increasingly digital world, one that makes a huge number of things possible that weren’t previously. In the coming years, it’ll be hard to find an industry which doesn’t include some form of AI and the events industry is no different.

However, before you jump on the AI bandwagon, it’s important to figure out what aspects of the technology will actually benefit your events and what it will be able to solve. The role of AI is primarily that of a problem-solver, enhancing business processes so that you can make experiences even better for your customers.

Find out some of the ways that you can use AI, in 2018 and beyond, to benefit your events business.

Personalisation and recommendations

When attending a large-scale event, many attendees want to know which of the exhibitors, attendees and products they should prioritise. While previously attendees would fill out a manual form with their interests and hopefully be matched to the appropriate attendees and exhibitors, this was not only often ineffective but also tedious and expensive for the planners of the event.

In comparison, using an AI matchmaking engine can be a lifesaver in these situations. Not only are they able to use and interpret data from social media profiles, such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, so that they can find out the relevant interests of your attendees, they can also learn from the recommendations they have made – attendees can schedule meetings or highlight their disinterest in the recommendations – so that they can improve the experience next time.

Find out more about the potential of AI matchmaking for events by exploring one of the systems on offer – Grip.

Increase communication options

If you’re running an event but getting sidetracked by questions coming from your attendees or guests, you may want to consider something that takes the onus of answering all their queries or doubts out of your hands.

An AI run chatbot could be the solution to your communication problem. Not only can you design and develop a chatbot specifically for your event, chatbots are also tireless and can communicate efficiently with your attendees, making sure they receive the information and answers that they’re looking for.

Since chatbots don’t need an app or a website login to be accessed, your attendees can simply be signposted to from your event webpage or through any email communications. They are also able to personalise conversations through learning from previous interactions.

Improving translation

In previous years, an international event could cause translation issues. However, the development of artificial intelligence could make those problems a thing of the past.

Instead of human translators, a number of companies have been developing artificial intelligence translators which will be able to act as rudimentary translation devices, sometimes even functioning through headphones – such as Google Pixel Buds. While the cultural nuances of translation will mean that more complex translation may still need human translators, this new tool will greatly influence the events industry as it continues to expand its use.

Improve the ease of attending an event

If you’re running a large event with a few thousand attendees, the idea of organising ticket queues and check-in areas may fill you with dread. However, with new developments in AI, long waiting lines and delays could be eradicated, simply by bringing all ticketing out of paper and into data.

Using both AI and biometrics, facial recognition software will be able to speed up the check-in process exponentially since it can authenticate attendees and grant them access to the venue much quicker than a manual check in. While not yet available for the events industry, a number of companies are interested in developing such a system to make attendance much more streamlined.

 

If you’re looking for a unique, central venue in the heart of London which is suitable for events, both large or small, consider The Brewery. With our IT and audio-visual services, we’ll be happy to help you accommodate any AI technologies you’d like to use for the planning and organising of your event.

How to theme your corporate event

With so many corporate events in your attendees’ busy diaries, it’s important to make yours stand out from the rest. If you’re racking your brains trying to think of the best way to attract guests to your event, a theme may be the answer.

Sure, a themed event is nothing new, but get it right and you’ll not only attract high numbers, but you’ll elevate your brand too. A theme will give your event some structure, inspire your guests, encourage them to share their experience on social media, and ensure your event is truly memorable. Here’s how to set the perfect theme for your next corporate event.

Set your goals

Before making any big decisions, think carefully about the purpose of your event. What are your goals? Brainstorm with your team and consider exactly what you want to achieve, whether that be attracting new clients, or bringing together international teams. Are you rewarding your employees, or hosting for investors? All of these answers will help you decide what kind of vibe you’re going for, and which theme would best achieve this.

Remind yourself of your brand values

The first place to take inspiration from should always be your own brand. When you’re considering a theme, keep your brand values at the forefront of your mind. Does this theme reflect what your brand stands for?

Define your audience

You can’t pull off a good theme without a willing audience, so take a long hard look at your guest list. What is your main age group? Will this be a family event? Are you hosting for clients? Where are people travelling from? If you have had similar events in the past, this would be a good point to look back at feedback to get a better idea of what your audience want from an event.

Get inspiration from your venue

If you’ve already started planning your event, it’s likely that picking a venue was the first task on your list. A great way to pick a theme is to be led by your venue – not only will it keep the theme consistent, but a lot of the work will already be done for you! Think outside the box and consider unique, historic venues that could really enhance your theme, or industrial spaces that could be a blank canvas.

Don’t hold back!

The theme of an event should be obvious from the very moment your guests step through the door. This means paying plenty of attention to every single detail to make sure your guests are impressed. From décor, dress code, lighting, food and music – there’s simply no point in theming an event unless you can be consistent throughout and ‘wow’ your attendees. Opting for an event venue with their own Event Design team is a sure-fire way of ensuring your venue is transformed exactly how you imagined.

Excellent quality Corporate event menu items

Match the food

As we’ve already mentioned, your theme should run through every single part of your event – and food is an area which certainly shouldn’t be neglected. Choose a venue that it willing to serve a bespoke menu designed particularly for the event, after all, a standard buffet just won’t cut it if you’re going all-out with décor! Try reflecting your theme in your bar menu too – nothing tops off a theme quite like a couple of themed cocktails for your guests to choose from.

 

If you’re looking for a unique venue in the heart of London which is suitable for corporate events large or small, consider The Brewery. Along with our expert knowledge and experience, we boast award-winning chefs and a dedicated Event Design team who can help you transform our beautiful venue into whatever you imagine, whether that be a winter wonderland or masquerade ball!

Getting the numbers right for your party or event

When organising an event or party, the first big hurdle is finding the perfect venue. While your search criteria might initially focus on how the venue looks and what services it offers, it’s important to also make sure you consider capacity so that you can fall in love with a venue that can also accommodate everyone you want to attend.

There are a number of things you need to consider with regards to capacity when planning for any event, small or large.

Capacity of the event venue

Whether the number on your guest list is single, double or even triple figures, you’ll need to make sure that your chosen event venue is suited to both your event and to making your attendees comfortable and able to enjoy whatever’s planned.

There are two options available when choosing a venue for an event where you are anticipating a large number of attendees. You can choose the venue first – for example, you could choose the Queen Charlotte room at The Brewery, which has a capacity of 160 guests (for a banquet) – and then fit your guest list around the 160 capacity that the room offers.

Or, you could set out your guest list first and then find a venue that fits the number of people you’d like to include. This way of doing things, while it can ensure that you’re able to have everyone at your event, can complicate choosing a venue since you’ll be limited in what you can look for.

While finding a venue for a smaller number, such as an anniversary party with less than 100 attendees or an exclusive business dinner, is likely to be less of a struggle, it’s no less important to find one that fits perfectly for your occasion. Choosing a venue that has a much larger capacity than your number of guests can lead to the event feeling either empty or lacking in atmosphere. Opting for  a venue that allows for a slightly higher number of guests than you want to invite can result in a relaxed and spacious affair.

Catering services

When planning an event, it’s important to remember that food is one of the most important aspects of the occasion. With this in mind, whether an event venue can provide catering services for your event, especially if you are inviting a large number of attendees, will be a key factor in which venue you choose.

If you’re thinking of having a sit-down meal, such as for a wedding reception or a business conference, you’ll need to make sure that the venue can cater for any dietary requirements your guests have, as well as providing a variety of food – no easy feat when you have a large number of attendees. In comparison, if you’re considering more of a buffet style menu, you’ll need to make sure that the venue can provide enough food for all your guests, or you’ll need to look for a separate caterer.

At The Brewery, we’re able to cater to all types of events and parties, creating a menu that will be tailored to your personal event with bespoke dishes and a sumptuous selection of flavours. No matter the size of your party, we’re more than happy to create a menu for all your guests. Find out more about the food and drink we can offer here.

Space for your event

The final big number cruncher when it comes to planning an event is making sure that each of your guests have space at the event you’re planning, whether a conference or wedding, and that means making sure they’re all seated when they need to be seated or able to be involved in any activities you’re planning without it feeling crowded.

While the capacity of your event venue will play a big part in this aspect of planning, it’s also important to make sure that you’re aware of how your event is going to unfold. Know in advance, before you look for a venue, what the plan of your event is going to be – are there going to be people moving around? Will there need to be space for tables and chairs? Are there going to be any entertainment features that require space?

In understanding these requirements, you’ll be able to pick a venue that not only has 500 capacity for your wedding guests, but also a little bit more so that you can all fit on the dance floor later in the night.

 

At The Brewery, we have a number of different venue spaces, ranging from 1000 capacity to an intimate 75 guest capacity, meaning that we can help you find the perfect space for your event. If you’d like to hold your event here, get in touch and we can help you sort out all the details.
