Planning the perfect corporate event for your employees can be a daunting task. There are hundreds of venues and activities— all claiming to be the best corporate event spot in town. Don’t worry about trying to narrow it down to the best. Just continue reading our article to discover how you can impress your employees with the perfect corporate event! 


  • Get them out of the office & into a fun environment. 


This is the most important aspect of a great party— get them out of their normal environment and into a fun setting! Shaking up the location from the usual places, like inside the office, will get your employees out of their routine and comfort zones. 


  • Give them time to let their hair down.


Don’t just jump straight into the activities at the beginning of a party. Give your guests a chance to let their hair down and acclimate to their surroundings. At The Edge, our arcade is the perfect chance to get everyone relaxed by playing state-of-the-art and retro games.  


  • Get some friendly competition going.


Once people are settled and comfortable, get some friendly competition going among your employees! This is a classic team building activity. We can foster competition by hitting the go-kart track or pitting teams against each other in bowling! You can also call a free-for-all with our bumper cars and let the crew unleash some tension! 


  • Get them working together


Once you’ve let them get their competitive nature out of the way, work in time to get some team building done. What better way to do so than bringing everyone together over a good ole fashioned shoot out? In our laser tag arena, they’ll have to use their teamwork skills to outmaneuver the opposition and capture the flag or defend GEMS in domination. 


  • Let them bond/socialize 


There’s nothing better than finishing off a day of team building activities with some socializing over drinks and food where coworkers get the chance to talk about everything but their jobs! Plus, they’ll need to recharge after a day of fun-filled activities, and d.s. vespers is the perfect spot.

So there you go, that’s all you need to do rock this year’s company event! If you need more information about all of the opportunities available at The Edge, click here!
