Wine Tasting - Corporate Events with a difference
Wine tasting is a great team and client event for Corporate Entertainment. It brings the best parts of client hospitality and corporate events together. Not only do your guests get to taste some brilliant wines in a fun environment, they can compete in hilarious fun challenges. There are a number of formats available to suit most corporate events.
Walk around network wine tastings allow a group to be able to mix and mingle at their own pace, this is perfect for groups over 30, but the bigger the group the better a network wine tasting works and the more cost effective it becomes with very large groups of 100 or more. Typically after reception drinks a short light hearted presentation gives the audience an outline of the evening. After this guests mix and mingle learning about wine at their own pace, while enjoying the wines.
A more traditional corporate wine tasting event puts groups into teams, each team competes against each other, with the wine tastings tailored to as much fun or education as you would like. If you are entertaining clients it is a good idea to have key account mangers on tables with their current or possible new clients. This gives a chance for building rapport with clients.
Or perhaps the tasting is more team events orientated? To maximise the benefits for team building you can manage the tables to encourage more interaction across different teams. If the teams are new then it helps to bond the teams with team building games. Some tastings such as The wine apprentice allow teams to compete in business tasks while learning about wine marketing and problem solving.
For a corporate wine tasting event that is truly different Interactive game shows are more fun than educational and are often run during a meal. These work as great corporate hospitality for your clients, but also work as a special reward for the team looking for a fun work social event. A great opportunity to bond in a fun way as a group.
