After a few years of event cancellations, virtual events, and webinars during the pandemic, businesses are finally starting to gather in person once again — and we couldn’t be more excited.
If it’s been a while since your company has hosted an in-person meeting or corporate event, it can be a bit intimidating to get back in the swing of things. We’ve got you covered. We’ve compiled a list of events your business can host in 2023 and beyond to help inspire your next magical corporate gathering.
1. Celebratory Parties
Forget the stress of your job, focus on something other than work, and enjoy each other’s company.
Parties are a great way to honor a colleague’s birthday, milestone work anniversaries, company milestones, or the holiday season. They’re also a fun way to reward your team for a job well done after completing a big project, meeting, or company-wide goal.
The size and scope of your party can depend on what you’re celebrating. At Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel, we’ve hosted everything from small team lunches in our garden to large company holiday parties in our ballroom. The options are endless.
Our meeting facilities have over 20,000 square feet of flexible corporate event space to accommodate groups of all sizes. Each event planned with Cindy Smith, our Director of Sales and Marketing, is structured to provide you with the most value for your budget.
2. Fundraisers, Volunteering, and Charity Events
Whether you’re a non-profit looking to connect with potential donors or a business looking to give back to the community, fundraisers, volunteering, and charity ideas are endless. They’re also an excellent way to connect and live out your company’s mission.
Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel’s large ballrooms are the perfect place to host a magical fundraising gala dinner, charity auction, or ticketed performance event to raise money for your company’s foundation or favorite non-profit.
You and your team can also make a difference on a smaller scale. Consider planning a volunteer day and spend time giving back as a team. Clean up local parks, volunteer at a shelter or food bank, plant trees, or whatever is meaningful and important to your employees and company mission.
Fundraising and charity events can be fun for your team, customers, and others interested in supporting their community. These events are a great way to get your team involved and active while raising money for a good cause.
3. Training & Onboarding
If your business is growing and you’re onboarding new team members or implementing new processes, consider hosting a work training day or event. These in-person events are especially helpful for remote or hybrid teams that have limited time in-person together.
A welcome or onboarding event is an excellent opportunity for current and new employees to get to know each other better. If you’ve been working remotely the past few years, this may be their first opportunity to meet face to face.
In-person training and onboarding events also help new team members get up to speed faster than they could in a remote onboarding setting. They’re able to ask questions and get hands-on support, rather than waiting for a response or weeding through hundreds of files and messages.
It also provides businesses an opportunity to clearly communicate business goals and objectives to your team all at once. You can reiterate workplace best practices and share new ideas you’d like to implement in your workplace without the details getting lost in a company email or Slack announcement.
4. Team Building Events and Activities
If your team is looking for a way to get to know each other or better understand different personalities and perspectives, try team-building activities or retreats.
Team building retreats allow employees to spend time together outside of the work environment and get to know each other’s non-professional personalities.
Consider bringing in a motivational speaker to get your team fired up or schedule some fun team bonding activities, like a sushi-making class with our very own Chef Hiro from Hanagi Japanese Restaurant!
Hosting outdoor events isn’t a problem at Anaheim Majestic Garden Hotel! Enjoy the day in the California sun with a yoga session or brunch in our outdoor garden space.
5. Service or Product Launches
Why just send a boring press release? Generate some buzz and announce a new product or service with a launch party.
Typically, these parties are designed to inform potential clients or customers about the new product or service through media and influencer attention. However, if the new product or service is a big milestone for your business or took a lot of people to get it launched, it’s also a great opportunity to recognize your team.
These launch events can include a dinner for attendees, product or service demos, entertainment, press conferences, and photo opportunities.
6. Meetings and Conferences
Meetings with important clients, board members, industry leaders, or business colleagues may require a little extra planning and support. If you’re a remote company or simply don’t have a suitable space in your existing offices, consider taking these important meetings off-site.
Booking a conference room or off-site meeting space means you’ll have all the space, privacy, and amenities you need — including WiFi, whiteboards, projectors, screens, and more. Plus, getting out of the office is a great way to spur creativity and out-of-the-box ideas and presents a neutral ground for negotiations and discussions.
7. Team Incentives
Trying to motivate your team? Team incentive trips are an excellent way to ensure business goals are achieved. Reward your team for their hard work and dedication throughout the year with a trip to Anaheim, California!
Allow high-performing employees to bring their loved ones and enjoy a weekend at Disneyland® Resort, host a dinner with fresh traditional Japanese cuisine from our on-site Hanagi restaurant, or bask in the sunshine with a pool party.
After the last few years of uncertainty, everyone could use a bit of a break, right? Your employees will love spending time outside of work while celebrating their accomplishments.
