Are you planning a corporate dining event to start the new year off right? These fancy parties can be quite intimidating during the planning process, especially if you’re doing everything yourself. It’s important to know, however, that there are plenty of people and organizations willing to help with every aspect of a corporate dining event. You just have to know where to look.

Here are some excellent tips that should help lessen your load as you plan for the first major corporate event of 2018:

Consult with professional cafeteria service providers

The U.S. catering industry employs roughly 261,189 people — call them. Your best bet to take some of the pressure off leading up to these corporate events is to give experienced cafeteria services a call. These cafeteria vendors can help with all kinds of aspects of your corporate dining event, especially in terms of serving healthy food options. It’s best to work with a company that provides both pickup and drop off meal services, too.

Ask for company volunteers in the weeks and months prior

Even if you planned on doing most of the party planning yourself, if you ask for volunteers, people will certainly volunteer to help you out. Whether they are volunteering out of the goodness of their hearts, or they are just trying to improve their reputation after a rough quarter, every pair of extra hands certainly helps.

Remember to have fun

Even if this party turns out to be a disaster, the only thing that will happen is you’ll have a few funny memories to look back on. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed with all the planning and executing so you don’t even get to enjoy one second of your special event. There will be plenty more corporate dinners — some good and some very, very bad — so you shouldn’t stress too much on one and try to enjoy yourself a little bit.
