Anyone in business knows the power of a positive first impression. But why do so many people choose corporate event venues in Auckland that are decidedly dreary and dull, and with no wow factor at all? That’s no way to make an initial impact that will stick with potential clients. In those beige and colourless venues, the event will be as forgettable as the place itself, and that’s not how you do business!
We believe the first impression is the first rule of running a successful corporate event! It’s all about people walking into a venue and thinking - “this place is amazing. I am thrilled to be here!” Someone with that positive mindset is likely to be just as receptive to everything else on offer; that’s what a great first impression does. It sets the scene - the more beautiful that scene the better - and tells potential clients that you think enough of them to host the event in a special setting.
We’ve seen it time and time again at The Maritime Room . We’re located within the National Maritime Museum on the Viaduct Harbour, within a clam shell’s throw of Auckland’s CBD. As people walk into this beautiful space and take their first glimpse at the views across the sparkling Waitemata Harbour, you can almost feel the sense of excitement that the venue provides. It’s a wonderful way to start a corporate event and sets the tone for the rest of the proceedings. The event hosts breathe a sigh of relief at that point because they know the people they’ve invited are feeling good about where they are, and what’s to come.
Of course, the success of any corporate event can’t rely on a stunning first impression alone. Sure, it breaks the ice in an incredible way, but the momentum must be maintained through things like delicious food, excellent facilities and service that is friendly yet discreet. When these things are taken care of by the people managing the venue, it ensures the event will end as well as it started. In terms of building ongoing relationships and staying top of mind, that’s essential.
