Corporate party planning can be an underrated art. Consider that your typical party planner is working to create an experience that is entertaining, celebratory and commemorative. There are multiple, competing objectives to be met. Casino party rentals are one of the most popular forms of corporate party entertainment. With a casino event, attendees are often given a natural ice breaker that encourages interaction among guests. Instead of walking around mingling to cocktails, guests can instead interact with one another to the sights, sounds and thrills of Las Vegas-style entertainment.
When choosing this form of entertainment, an often-overlooked aspect is the appearance of the party. While there are many casino party operators in any metro area, there are usually only a select few that can provide the experience a typical party planner seeks. Unlike shopping for a product, you are not guaranteed the same result when shopping for services. It is important to know the difference.
Not all casino party operators are equal. In fact, the differences can be chasmic. For this reason, it is important to educate planners to avoid price comparison and instead focus on product comparison. Planners are encouraged to seek out the best value, not necessarily the best price.
One of the most important variables in the selection process should be the look of the experience. Did you know that there are variances in the appearance of casino party rentals? The differences can be extraordinary. Casino table games are often the first thing guests notice when they arrive to their party. There are traditional operators offering standard tables, usually with green felts, that have been in use for years. There are other operators who have unique tables that are updated. Different patterns, colors and designs may be used. These providers focus on the visual impact that the tables can have – seeing them more than just a piece of furniture, but instead as an extension of the party.
When planning your event, ask for photos. Review them carefully. Are they stock photos or are they representative of what you can expect to receive? Do the photos show the tables in full detail? Are the tables clean and neat in presentation? Are the tables that should be skirted (blackjack and/or roulette) skirted? Craps tables should be open and comprised of wood. Party rentals should never be placed upon another table (table top games) but should instead be free-standing. Do the rentals include seating? Are these the best option for your group?
Corporate party planners seek to create an experience that personifies the company’s reputation and core values. Don’t leave your party to chance – know before you book.
