If your sales staff mainly deals with clients who live in different states than where your business is centrally located, you may rely heavily on phone calls, emails, and memos to keep your workforce updated on impending changes and current projects. Make your next sales meeting a success by bringing your employees together and spending time with them in a setting that will promote both productivity and camaraderie.
Choose A Venue That Boasts Ample Seating And Privacy
Probably one of the last things that your sales representatives will want to deal with after traveling to the meeting is to be required to sit in a small room that provides rudimentary seating and that lacks privacy or a pleasant view. Choose a meeting venue that includes a dining and entertainment area so that you and the others can follow up the business portion of the event with a delicious meal, beverages, and recreational activities.
Central heat and air, windows that are adjacent to a scenic backdrop, a large table or podium, cushioned seats, and a sound system are great features to look for prior to making a reservation for the event.
If you will be speaking to a large group of people during the meeting, plan on standing at the front of the room and using a microphone and speakers to project your voice. Request a room that is separate from other parts of the venue so that you can take your time and give a speech, without needing to worry about being disrupted.
Offer Gratitude And Encourage The Attendees To Unwind
Addressing concerns with your business and changes that will be occurring in the future may be your main objectives, but you also want to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves. After all, these are the people who are dedicated to your entity and who strive to do their best each day. Offer gratitude by handing out awards toward the end of the meeting.
Afterward, lead your guests to the dining and entertainment areas that you have reserved. A homestyle meal that consists of large trays of food will allow our workers to try many different dishes that interest them. Music, dancing, and interactive games can be offered, which will bring everyone closer together.
Assist With Accommodations
There will be no need for anyone to rush off and face traffic delays if you assist your sales team with overnight accommodations. Select a hotel that is located near the venue where the meeting and other festivities are being held and make reservations for the attendees or guide them with choosing a room at the hotel, prior to arriving for the event.
