Relighting the Company Fire – Evening Entertainment & Venue Finding for a Company Party

A leading Plant Hire Company, stuck in an annual groundhog day type corporate dinner, enlisted our help to refresh the company-wide event and make it an occasion that their 300+ employees would be excited to be a part of.

Where to start! The event had been held at the same venue for a number of years and the format was unchanged so the KDM Event Management team got to work straight away on venue finding, getting our ideas and recommendations across on that same day.

St John’s Hotel in Solihull was the chosen event venue, providing the Midlands based company with 150 bedrooms and space for their rejuvenated company party.

Our next task was to consider ways to change from a staid corporate dinner, to a Company celebration dinner thanking employees for their hard work – with a particular emphasis on entertainment & fun, in order to leave a lasting impression & strengthen morale amongst employees.

After considering a range of possible themes, a Wild West Themed evening was selected to create a real party atmosphere – with the focus then turning onto the requirement to ensure a memorable evening. KDM dressed all tables & provided bespoke cactus centrepieces, and themed the room with a range of props such as Ranch signs, bale stacks, gallows, gravestones, silhouette panels, themed backdrops etc – along with a bespoke Wild West themed saloon bar & entranceway.

From a wide range of entertainment options, KDM sourced a band along with line caller to provide a barn dance, as well as various themed shooting ranges, Rodeo Bull, bespoke Photo Studio & spoof paparazzi amongst others. A memorable evening was had by all, with excellent client feedback also reporting that next year’s event will have to be larger due to increased demand to attend from employees.
