Corporate Events are hosted by a company for a number of reasons. Maybe you are looking to foster team-building and bonding? Or celebrating a product launch? Or maybe you are hosting a party to celebrate a company milestone.
Let’s take a deep dive into the work of planning corporate events and what separates ESR corporate experiences from the rest!
Whatever the type of event, the company hosting it is working towards a goal. The goal may be to reward employees for their hard work, strengthen team dynamics, or celebrate a special occasion such as a company anniversary.
No matter the event type, all of the events need to meet their goals while providing entertainment and unique experiences for all attendees. Statistics show that companies that hold frequent staff events have high employee retention rates and successful overall team performance.
If you’re taking the time to recognize and appreciate your employees and the success of your company that they contribute to, then consider prioritizing the choice of venue.

A Corporate Event Planners Dream
“Wanted to tell you how very pleased I was with the event you and your staff put on for my client, StarKist. No detail was overlooked and no request was too much…from the food to the staff to the entertainment,…it was all even better than I had hoped for!
You truly have a great space for events as in my 22 years of planning meetings and events all around the world, I have never come across such a unique and memorable location. The food was delicious, the table decorations and arrangements were beautiful, and the staff was a delight to work with. Not only was everything that was promised delivered, there were extras thrown in as well that made the event even more special. I feel for everything you did for us, making sure that a thousand and one details were perfectly executed, made the value of the service you provided more than worth it. You and your staff’s professional, friendly approach made the event one to remember.
Thanks again, and when I come back to San Antonio with my next group, save a seat at the campfire for all of us! ”
