By deciding what your corporate goal is, you’ll be able to: Identify your target audience: Corporations have multiple stakeholders, such as customers, prospects, employees, investors, community members, and more. An event goal will help you identify the right audience for your event. Know the stage of your buyer’s journey: If you decide to run a marketing or sales event, your goal will clarify the buyer’s journey stage you want to engage in.
Choose the correct type of event: As you know, there are different event types you can choose from. For example, if your goal is to increase brand awareness, you can plan a product launch. On the other hand, if you want to ensure better team cohesion, you can choose between various team-building events, such as retreats, dinners, parties, internal conferences, and more. In other words, your goal will determine the type of your event.
Design the event program: If your goal is to increase brand awareness, you may add more networking sessions to your program, enabling attendees to schedule meetings with your sales representatives.
Include suitable attendee engagement activities: Your event goal will help you decide how to design the engagement experience. For example, suppose your goal is to build a community within your industry. In that case, you may devise multiple co-creative activities, nudging attendees to engage and interact with each other.
It’s worth noting that the list isn’t exhaustive, as your goal may impact each decision you’re making while planning the event.
Types of Goals for Corporate Events
When it comes to corporate events, you can choose between two goal types:
Internal goals: Planning events focused on strengthening and nurturing the community within your corporation.
External goals: Running events to engage external stakeholders, nudging them to take a specific action. These external stakeholders can be your leads, prospects, brand community members, investors, and more.
→ Examples of internal goals
You may identify multiple internal goals, such as:
- Encourage communication and teamwork between departments
- Build trust and high-quality connections between your team members
- Foster innovation and creativity, encouraging employees to think out of the box
- Ensure knowledge transfer and communicate the strategy changes
→ Examples of external goals
You may identify countless external goals, such as:
Increase brand awareness
Acquire new customers
Transform customers into brand ambassadors
Cross-sell or up-sell to existing customers
How Many Goals Your Corporate Event Should Have?
Although you can define multiple goals per event, focusing on one goal only will help you increase the efficiency of your work. Let’s say, for example, your goals are to:
Attract high-quality leads
Transform customers into brand ambassadors
You can pursue different goals, designing an event for multiple audiences. However, you’ll see a decrease in efficiency.
