5 tips for the successful organisation of a cocktail dinner in Geneva

When planning a cocktail dinner, the location of the event is often a key strategic consideration. It is even more so in the case of a cocktail party, where the venue must match your objectives and the expectations of your guests.
Welcome them in a unique, exceptional or very representative place of your company, theme or sector of activity. The first impression your guests will have of your event will come from the venue, so take your time in choosing the location. Don’t hesitate to stand out and look for unexpected places to make them feel special.

And don’t forget the practicalities. Your venue should be easily accessible for your guests, whether by public or private transport. Finally, green spaces – if possible in the open air – are always a plus.

Choose a date and time for your cocktail dinner. To avoid scheduling conflicts, offer your guests several dates so that you can gather a larger number of people. Also check for possible conflicts with major sporting events, similar events, school holidays, religious holidays, etc. Organising a cocktail party requires a lot of preparation and thought.

Essential step for the success of your cocktail reception. You will have to determine which people you should invite. First of all, be aware that there is no pre-set number, so you are free to invite whoever you want. However, make sure you anticipate something that happens regularly: the no show. In other words, invite a significant number of people (more than the capacity of the room) and you will observe that a good part will decline immediately, while another will accept, but simply won’t show up on the day.

The proposed invitation should highlight the theme of the cocktail party (gala dinner) and talk very briefly about the planned entertainment, etc. The aim is to make your guests want to come, and to make them salivate! To make life easier for them, you can add the appointment to their electronic agenda, add the place of the reception on Google maps, etc…

The atmosphere, even if it is a professional event, must be a festive minimum. The aim is to make the cocktail informal, and thus to be able to break the ice more quickly. Your guests will feel at ease and will be able to connect with each other and with your company. The atmosphere is therefore a step not to be neglected. You can therefore consider various animations that will allow an efficient exchange, or provide accessories.

Banish completely the extended presentations of your company, etc… The objective is that everyone enjoys the evening! Business will then follow naturally if your guests have fun and clear their minds.

One thing not to forget: the music! Of course, perhaps avoid putting the latest rap album you are listening to in your car. Instead, prefer softer music that is more appropriate for this type of professional event, such as jazz. Put it just in the background, just to relax the atmosphere.
