Host an Impressive Product Launch

017Like any corporate event, a product launch needs to both impress the attendees and reflect your business’ brand. You want a product launch to maintain or increase the integrity and reputation of your company. That means that everything should be done to a high standard. Whatever product you choose to launch, your event should have clear purpose, an exciting reveal and an impressive venue. With all these aspects in place you will be best situated to generate real buzz around your new product.

Impressive Venue
An impressive venue is of the essence for any product launch or corporate event. The venue not only reflects upon your company but also determines the level of comfort of your guests. An impressive and luxurious venue says that you are a successful company that wishes to show off a great product. Private boat hire is a fantastic idea, whether or not you are hosting an event of 60 or 1000. Sydney Harbour is a gorgeous place with views to impress any guest. With many Australians choosing to have luxurious weddings on Sydney Harbour you can be sure that the location is both glamorous and internationally renowned.

Big Reveal
The reveal of your product should be the highlight of your launch. You can choose from many different ways to launch the product, depending on its size and use. One impressive and exciting way to reveal a product is with a hydraulic lift floor, so that the product appears and is able to be viewed by everyone. The Starship Sydney is one venue that has a fantastic hydraulic lift. You may also want to consider speeches and other information sharing mediums at your launch. This could be via press releases, information booklets or a company spokesperson giving a talk. Remember however, that the initial impression of a product is rarely able to be forgotten.

Generate Buzz
Generating buzz is a mixture of your product launch and your ongoing efforts after the event. If you have an impressive reveal then the press and other attendees are more likely to create buzz within their own circles. In this way you can generate buzz and sales through your launch.

Safe And Fun School Formals

School formals are a huge event in the life of every teenager. The formal marks a milestone as well as providing a chance for teenagers to relax and enjoy their achievements. A formal needs to be fun and exciting, but that doesn’t mean that teenagers need to be at risk. The choice of venue is the biggest choice you’ll make, so ensure you look for these important factors:

Fun, Party Vibe
A formal should be lots of fun. For teenagers that generally means dancing the night away with their friends. A venue that offers plenty of dancing space and professional DJs is an absolute MUST for any successful Sydney school formals. http://www.starshipsydney.com.au/social-functions/school-formals/

Security
Security is a huge concern of teachers and parents when formal time comes around. A venue needs security that can not only keep out non-formal attendees, but also look after teens and ensure they behave responsibly. An exclusive venue is best for this reason. One of the fantastic things about a cruise, such as on the Starship Sydney http://www.starshipsydney.com.au/ is that no one can leave early. This means that parents can be sure the teenagers are all partying together and safely.

Planning Assistance
Ask the venues you are looking at how they will help with planning. Is the venue only able to offer dancing and beverages, or do they have sit down meals available? Will you have to separately organise music and lights, or can they supply these essentials? Planning a formal and organising 150 + teenagers is hard enough, without having to micromanage the event.

016Exclusive, Elegant Feel
Formals should feel elegant and exclusive. Often attendees spend a lot of time and money on their appearance for the event, so a gorgeous backdrop for photos is a must. Consider venues that are both fun and elegant, to ensure the formal is a hit both on the night and in the photos.

School formals should be a fantastic night for all the attendees, making great memories for them to hold onto throughout their life. A wonderful school formal brings together a whole grade to celebrate their hard work.

Wow Your Guests From Start To Finish

009Hosting an event that makes guests say ‘wow!’ isn’t about an endless budget or painstakingly following trends. All ‘wow’ events have one thing in common: fantastic planning. Whether you’re planning a birthday, a wedding or even just a party, blowing away your guests will require some forethought. Its also essential to know your priorities, and what is and isn’t required to make the event stand out in your guests’ memories.

Set The Scene
A blockbuster movie and your party both need a killer intro. Setting the scene right will entice your guests, exciting them that this will be more than the average party. This starts with your invitation. Make your invitation exciting, luxurious, quirky or surprising and the guests will already be intrigued. Your invitation should reflect the event – if you are wanting to throw a romantic, black tie, wedding cruise then the invitation should be formal, romantic and beautifully made.

Details Are Key
Details are key in a great event, so make sure they aren’t lost in the plan. The venue you choose should be gorgeous – not just from afar, but up close. You want fantastic views, but you also want sparkling utensils and classy decorations. To make things easy for yourself, ask the venue staff to take care of any little details you don’t have time for you.

Amp The Wow Factor
You need at least one Wow moment to make your event truly sparkle. That could be the dress you wear, the band you hire, or the fantastic and elaborate decorations. Another fantastic wow factor is the view from your location. A stunning view will frame everything that happens at the party, looking good on the day and in the photos. If you are going to have speeches, make the most of the view and have the speaker framed by the best window. In Sydney some of the best views are of the harbour, and these can easily be shown off on a cruise such as those on the Starship Sydney.

Be Unique
Being unique can be something as little as having a quirky theme, but you’ll be certain to wow with a unique location. Sydney harbour cruises for birthdays are a unique choice, with a glamorous and exclusive feel for guests. Rather than a bar or marquee, guests set off onto the harbour for a unique event.
