THE Company Party (Learn 5 Ways to Enhance Your Gatherings!)

THE Company Party (Learn 5 Ways to Enhance Your Gatherings!)

In previous posts, we have discussed the importance of throwing an annual company party for your team, and over the past few months, we have been honing in on ways to help make those gatherings a huge success! 

We recently held THE Company Party – a preview of services brought together to showcase just how amazing your party’s can be with the right team of professionals making things happen. Our party was a hit, and yours can be too! 

We have compiled the following list of steps to ensure that your next party is one for the books! 

  1. 1. Pick your date – Before landing on a date for your party, we recommend you get feedback from your team. Give them a few options and run with the one that picks up the most steam. 

2. Pick your Venue – With hundreds of venues to choose from, making this decision can feel daunting but it doesn’t have to be. Kramer Events can help with our Find a Venue Page

3. Food – Everyone loves it, so make sure you put careful consideration into your meal choice. Let your guests know what to expect. Appetizers, full meal? They will appreciate you giving them this information so they can plan accordingly. 

4. Transportation – There is nothing more important than getting your guests safely from point A to point B. So ensure you have quality transportation lined up! 

5. Entertainment – is hugely important to the success of your corporate party. Do you want to have guests dancing, or do you think your crowd would be better suited for playing games with one another? 

We couldn’t have brought our company party together without the help of the following partners and all around rad Central Coast Vendors.

Slo Brew Rock. They transformed their space into the perfect setting for a corporate party.
Bright Event Rentals added a touch of ambiance with their comfortable and stylish lounge furniture.
Rod and Hammer’s Slo Stills  provided high quality spirits and mixed drinks.
Obsidian Luxury Services offered safe rides home for any guests who needed transportation in their luxurious vehicles. 

Our Kramer Events game show was so much fun, host Nick Malizia is one of the funniest guys we know, and kept the crowd laughing. During the second portion of the event, DJ Miles got everyone vibing with the music, and all three of our photo booths were on display with their brand new features

Team Member Spotlight

Meet Rachel our Client Coordinator,

Client Coordinator, Kramer Events, Rachel Lavender

Rachel joined us last October.  In her first week, she immediately showed her hidden talents at our Karaoke at Farmer’s Market. She crushed it!  Needless to say, she’s not shy.  Originally from New York, she now calls the central coast home.

She’s filling a new position for us, as a Client Coordinator. She is ensuring our clients and wedding couples get fast and responsive service and then hands that info over to our team in the field who will execute events.  In short, she’s the new HUB of information for all our events.  

If you are a client and have a question about your event, she’s your girl.  If you are a fellow vendor or venue and you’re wanting to communicate about an event detail, she’s your girl.  And if you are going to a Karaoke bar and need some backup, she’s your girl.

We are stoked to have her on board.  Her work ethic and drive are amazing.  And her level of detail is incredible.  She’s helping take our office team to the next level.  

Thanks for keeping us organized Rachel!

2019 Central Coast Wedding Games

Central Coast Wedding Games, Kramer Events, Central Coast Wedding Industry

Choreographed dance moves, matching Orange knee-highs, and a desire to kick ass – the Kramer team came out in full force for the second annual Central Coast Wedding Games, and the results are hilarious!

We trained, we played, we lost…but that’s not what’s important. (The winning team might beg to differ).

Central Coast Wedding Games, Kramer Events, Central Coast Wedding Industry

Whats important is that we all came out and did our best with good humor and funny outfits, we came together and we did something to benefit our community.

Central Coast Wedding Games, Kramer Events, Central Coast Wedding Industry

You see, this event, which was created and made possible by some of the best in our Central Coast Wedding industry, benefits a great cause – The SLO Special Olympics. So no matter how silly we looked or how muddy we got, it was all worth it because a total of $1,500 was raised that day!

Kramer Events Headquarters Meets Avenue Twelve Rentals

Kramer Events, Avenue Twelve

Keeping your workspace fresh and updated is vital to creativity. That’s why we are so excited about our new Kramer Events headquarters! Avenue Twelve has redesigned our space and the results are inspiring!

A few months back we decided that our work space was due for a decorative revamp, so the office crew got to work cleaning windows, rearranging furniture, planting flowers, and buying easily maintainable house plants (because let’s be real, it isn’t easy to keep green things alive).

Kramer Events, Avenue Twelve

We made some great headway and our space really started to come alive and become the burst of fresh air that we needed, but the finishing touch that brought it all together? Avenue Twelve, a San Luis Obispo based rental studio which specializes in unique furniture and decor for weddings, parties, and events. They have a funky vintage feel and incorporate furniture as well as specialty items that will transform your space into something magical, memorable and personal – and thats just what happened to our design session space at Kramer Events!

Kramer Events, Avenue Twelve

We are so thrilled to continue to offer our Central Coast Wedding clients the best experience possible when they come in for their design sessions in our brand new space!

Kramer Events, Avenue Twelve

A big shout out to Yvonne Goll, talented local photographer of Yvonne Goll Photography and design guru for Avenue Twelve for using her creative mind to put together the perfect setup for us!

Kramer Events Core Focus & Values

Kramer Events Core Focus & Values

Core values define a company’s culture.  And that’s definitely the case at Kramer Events.  They set the tone for everything we do and every decision we make.  It helps attract and retain like minded people to our organization.  

Every organization has values, whether they are actually stated or not.  You’ll see some companies even put them on their walls for everyone to see (we do too).  But what really matters is that they become part of everything you do.  When they become part of your hiring, firing, rewarding, and decision-making alike then you are really living your core values.

Our team has recently gone through an exercise to discover what 6 values best define our culture.  These values are who we are and what we stand for.  And everyone in our organization, including myself is accountable to uphold these values.

Kramer Events Core Focus & Values

These values are what our team believes in and represents.  It’s a part of everything we do.  These values, combined with our core focus is the guiding light for our organization.  

Kramer Events Core Focus & Values

Our values have also become the categories for our annual team awards.

See which team members best exemplified our core values for 2018 in this months Team Member Spotlight.
