Daytime events are often overlooked. Whilst evening events are popular for awards ceremonies and charity functions, it is often difficult to guarantee attendance due to your guests having other commitments outside of work. If you host an event during the day you can be assured of a captive audience, as your guests would usually be at work! Corporate lunches, charity events, awards ceremonies, conferences and team building all work extremely well during the day.
What’s more, the popularity of evening events means that dates book up very quickly and you might have to compromise to get that perfect date and venue. There is usually much more availability and flexibility when choosing daytime events.
Daytime events are often more cost effective as well, when guests are invited to an evening event they expect food, entertainment and alcohol. A daytime event can start after lunch, saving on catering costs and finish early evening saving on bar costs. Of course, we don’t expect you to cut out food and drink completely, but providing canapés for 500 guests is significantly cheaper than 500 three-course meals.
Depending on the event, entertainment can be adjusted accordingly. Evening events often call for a live band, DJ and dance floor, photo booth and sometimes live shows. Daytime events could incorporate some elements, but it’s generally not expected by guests and can often seem out of place.
But we’re not saying a daytime event has to be a sober, straight laced affair. The Pavilion at the Tower of London has a dramatic backdrop and private outdoor space so guests can make the most of the weather and enjoy drinks receptions in the North Moat of the Tower of London.
