How do you organise an award event

Did you know that 80.4% of event organisers believe that events are the most critical marketing channel for achieving business goals? On the surface, corporate event awards ceremonies may appear inconsequential, but the reality is that they offer a unique opportunity to recognise and celebrate achievements, strengthen company culture and motivate your team.

However, in order to achieve this, you must be willing to take the time to carefully plan each aspect of your event, paying attention to the smallest details. In this article, we will be taking you through the key steps to create an awards event that your attendees are proud to be a part of.

What is the purpose of your corporate event awards ceremony?

The key to any successful event is to be clear about its purpose and what you hope to achieve. For an awards event, this can involve deciding which achievements or milestones you want to celebrate. This could be years of service, team accomplishments, hitting targets, exceptional employee performance or anything else that deserves recognition. Being clear with your goals will help the event run smoothly and create a truly meaningful experience for guests.


Your choice of venue will play a huge role in the success of your event, so it is important that the setting aligns with the theme and can comfortably accommodate everyone. The location should be accessible to all guests and offer all the necessary facilities to ensure everyone has an enjoyable and memorable experience.


The first step to any successful award event is creating captivating invitations. Whether you send them a printed invite or an e-vite, it is vital to incorporate an eye-catching design that reflects the importance of the evening and communicates key details such as the date, time, venue, dress code, and how to RSVP.


A key part of any event is entertainment that keeps your guests engaged and entertained throughout. This could range from live music, a comedy act, ice sculptures or even a photo booth, but whatever you choose should align with your event’s theme and atmosphere. The right entertainment can make or break these experiences, so picking correctly is imperative.


The heart of any award event is a well-crafted and thoughtful presentation that engages the audience. You should focus on preparing speeches that not only acknowledge the recipient’s achievements but also focus on the broader values and vision of the organisation to hopefully inspire others. You may also want to consider including photos and videos are part of a slideshow presentation to keep your guests engaged and highlight the importance of the award.

To convey the significance of this award event and how much you admire and value the recipients, why not consider incorporating crystal glass awards? These bespoke creations, customised with the recipient’s name and achievement, are the perfect way to emphasise the importance of the occasion and make people feel appreciated.
