Corporate Event Planning


Cordial & Craft will make sure every step of the event planning process is carefully prepared and executed, keeping you informed and included in decisions while taking the burden off your shoulders. Whatever your needs, from product launches to customer appreciations, Cordial & Craft will create the event and the pre-event chatter your company requires for success.

For the marketing manager who is responsible for corporate events, in addition to so many other responsibilities. The director who knows how to entertain clients or motivate employees, but doesn’t have the time or resources to do so. The human resources team that needs to focus on employee achievement, not the event that celebrates it.


Cordial & Craft can design, produce, and execute corporate events for:

  • Grand Openings
  • Branding and Product Launch
  • Team Building
  • Employee Recognition
  • Annual Meetings
  • Company Parties
  • Company Anniversaries and Milestones


Our job is to provide amazing and enjoyable experiences for the event attendees and make our client proud that they hired our team!


Conversation is such an important and underrated step in the process of event planning. This is the “get to know you” part, kind of like dating. We ask a lot of questions about you and the event. You ask a lot of questions about us and about our experience. We want to make sure our skill set matches your needs. If we’re not the one for you, we are happy to recommend a better fit.  


So, great! Seems like we’re a good match. Now, we move to the proposal stage, where we discuss the required needs, services, and our fee. It is important that we first determine a general event budget – we don’t want to propose a Grand Gala if you really want a Hoedown. 🙂  If the pricing and services offered are acceptable, we move to the contract phase.


This sounds scarier than it is. The contract describes the expectations for both the client and Cordial & Craft. Once the contract is signed and the deposit is paid, a project team is assigned. We assign a project team based on a variety of factors such as personality and similar project experiences.



This is the fun part! We take your objectives and our creativity and put together a concept. Once the concept is approved, we move forward to the planning phase.


Now it comes down to the nitty-gritty details: timelines, production schedules, run of shows, contingency plans, and vendor management. 


This is the day that everything comes together.


We worry about the details, you entertain the guests and enjoy the evening.  When the event is over, you go home and take off your shoes. We ditch our shoes and stay behind to make sure everything is cleaned up. 


We’re all elated and glowing because you had a successful event, and we have happy clients. This is the debriefing meeting where we discuss your return on investment, thank you notes, and budget reconciliation.
