Planning a corporate event in 2024? Want a way to make your event stand out and leave a lasting impression? One of the most important things we have found in creating memorable corporate experiences is to choose the right theme. The right theme will transform your event and resonate with your audience, all while delivering your brand’s value.

Top Themes for Corporate Events in 2024.

Corporate Theme #1: Metaverse Mixer

The world has become obsessed with all-things metaverse. You can leverage this interest by throwing a metaverse-themed event. Provide opportunities for your guests to explore virtual reality and augmented experiences. You may also want to have guest speakers who can discuss the future of online connectivity. A metaverse mixer theme works particularly well for hybrid events, where some attendees may be remote.

Corporate Theme #2: Retro Night

In the world of business, you’re only as successful as your ability to pivot and embrace the future. How many businesses have been or will be disrupted in the coming years by cutting-edge technologies like AI? 

Sometimes it’s nice to go back to a simpler time, where rotary phones and Blockbuster stores were part of our everyday lives. We’re sure your attendees would be happy spending a bit of time in the 70s, 80s or 90s. Yes, the 90s are now considered “retro.” Raise your hand if that makes you feel a bit old?

Be sure to have fun decorating the space with nostalgic items like shag rugs, disco balls, neon lights, retro posters and lava lamps. Hire a DJ to play the top hits from that decade, or, if budget permits, even a live cover band to play classics. You should also encourage attendees to dress in retro fashion and have retro-inspired food, games and contests.

Corporate Theme #3: Casino Night

This is a timeless theme that will be welcomed by guests in 2024 and beyond, and one we have relied on over the years. It’s simply impossible for people to not have fun during casino night!

Bring Las Vegas to your team and have the classic games like baccarat, roulette, blackjack, and slot machines. You’ll also want to consider having live performances by comics, magicians or musicians. 

One of the cool things about a casino theme is that the activities encourage  a bit of teamwork along with some friendly competition. And when you think about it, these are both important characteristics/skills for employees to have!

Corporate Theme #4: Wellness and Mindfulness Retreat

While the covid pandemic is behind us, many industries are still experiencing what has been called “The Great Resignation” by unsatisfied employees. One way business owners can fight high turnover rates is by showing employees they are truly valued. And one of the best ways we have found to do that is by promoting well-being.

For your next meeting or President’s Club, consider planning a retreat that focuses on mindfulness and relaxation. Have workshops and activities that are centered around your teams’ mental and physical health. They will surely appreciate it!

Corporate Theme #5: Steampunk Party

Steampunk is a design style inspired by Victorian-era industrialism. Think top hats, lace, leather, gears and gadgets! Choose a venue that has a gritty, industrial feel and decorate it with Victorian-inspired decor, replete with brass accents, cogs, etc. 

To really bring this theme to life, hire steampunk-themed entertainment such as circus performers and live bands. Offer vintage-inspired cocktails, roasted meats and rustic pies. And of course, encourage your guests to wear steampunk garb such as gears, goggles, and corsets. 

When you dig into the genre of Steampunks, you learn that there is a real appreciation for DIY, resourcefulness, imagination, and critical thought. All important skills needed for businesses to thrive!
