Establishing a budget early on will guide your planning and help you prioritize spending. Consider costs such as venue rental, catering, audiovisual equipment, transportation, and any additional services you may need. Harbour Kitchen offers various packages and options to suit different budgets.

3. Choose the Right Date and Time

Selecting the right date and time is crucial for maximizing attendance. Consider the availability of your key participants and avoid dates that may clash with other significant events or holidays.

Effective promotion is essential for a successful turnout. Use a mix of email invitations, social media, and your company’s internal communication channels to reach your audience. Highlight the benefits of attending and any special features or guest speakers to generate excitement.
