entrywayMany corporate parties are moving their extravaganzas into their actual office as a type of “Open House Client Appreciation”. With this intimate and personal setting, guests can easily move through themed food stations which are positioned from one end of the office to the other.  Opening your doors and inviting your clients to see where all the behind the scene action takes place adds a personal touch.  As we all have experienced, people tend to do business with individuals they have a personal connection with.   There is also a cost savings element.  Parking is complimentary, there is no venue rental fee, you can utilize a caterer to keep your food costs low and purchase wine and beer direct without all the mark-up costs.  The money you save by hosting the event at your office you can apply towards a nice gift to thank your client for attending.
