Corporate events organisers arrange formal dinners, award ceremonies, presentations, training sessions, golf days, conferences, team-building days, product launches and trade exhibitions. They also organise corporate entertainment and provide advice to their clients about suitable venues for events. They are usually involved in the day-to-day management of events they have arranged, including sourcing and booking suppliers such as caterers and business skills trainers or after dinner speakers, managing the timing and scheduling of the event and dealing with problems and queries on the day.
Clients typically include corporate and public sector organisations, professional associations and charities. Events are typically designed to assist with team building, to celebrate company achievements and anniversaries, to raise awareness of the organisation or promote a particular business sector or range of products, or to raise funds for charity.
