Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some Frequently Asked Questions about conference and events planning in general and with Corporate Challenge Events.


What is event planning?

Event planning is the specialist process behind organising and delivering a structured event such as a conference, business event, corporate function or community event. There are many parts to event planning from establishing its purpose, defining the target audience, finding a venue, organising catering, marketing, integrating technology solutions right through to post-event surveys and reports.


Do I need a professional event planner?

Having an experienced and specialist event planner will ensure the most professional, efficient and cost-effective outcome for your event. Events require considerable time, resources and contacts to plan and usually involve financial risk. Event planners will relieve this pressure and ensure the job is done right and to your expectations.

Why is Corporate Challenge Events a specialist in company conferences?

We have identified significant growth in recent years in companies investing in their own internal conferences, whether annually or more regularly. This growth is based on the recognition of people (i.e. staff) as a company's greatest asset. Our vision is to deliver fun team cultures and coupled with the services we offer, we can create and deliver company conferences from the agenda to the logistics and important corporate training sessions and fun team building activities.


Why is it important for companies to have regular staff conferences?

We believe it's important for companies to host their own regular staff conference for the benefits they can bring to the company culture, the performance of internal teams and the professional development of staff. It provides the opportunity to communicate and engage with your people with a focus on the future.


How much notice do we need to give for Corporate Challenge Events to organise our event?

We have the resources to plan and deliver events with both short and long lead times. If you need an event planned and delivered in a matter of days or weeks, contact us to discuss how we can make this possible.
