Providing the Best in Corporate Group Transportation

Pulling off a successful business event like a conference, retreat, or award ceremony can be quite a hassle. There are so many different things to consider that it can be quite a daunting task. You have to worry about providing a meal that will appeal to all tastes and preferences, booking entertainment that will keep everyone from becoming bored, and making your mandatory event seem less of a requirement and more of an enjoyment. Not to mention all the minute details that are often forgotten, such as décor, proper silverware, and seating arrangements.

One aspect of event planning that is often overlooked is the transportation. We’re going to break it down for you and give you all the reasons you need to include corporate group transportation for your next business event.

Venue Issues

Picking a venue for your next business event is also probably one of the most important decisions you can make during the planning process. The wrong venue can make or break your event in more ways than one.

For example, what if the venue you’ve chosen doesn’t have the ability to provide parking for everyone? You could arrange for everyone to park at the office and be chauffeured to the event venue in a mini-coach. With Empire Corporate Transportation, we have several different mini-coaches, limo buses, and charter buses that can accommodate anywhere from 18 passengers all the way up to 53 passengers at a time.

Another thing you should consider when arranging transportation for your employees and their guests is whether or not they’ll be able to drive home safely if the venue and your planning includes an open bar. If your chosen venue is outside of the city, your guests may not have the ability to hail a cab if they’ve had one too many. By providing group transportation, you can ensure everyone arrives home safely at the end of the night.

Out of Town Travel

If the business event you’re planning is an out of town retreat, a mini-coach would be perfect for getting everyone there together. By providing your employees and coworkers the ability to ride together for a long distance will encourage communication. You could even arrange for everyone to be seated with different departments so they’re able to get to know different people within the company. Improved communications between different departments can go a long way towards improving the day to day operations.

The charter buses, mini-coaches, and limo buses offered by Empire Corporate Transportation also come equipped with televisions and sound systems to provide entertainment on those long trips out of town. While the most important thing about putting everyone together on these trips is to encourage communication, not everyone can keep a conversation going for several hours. Having the TVS and sound systems on board will provide filler entertainment once things get a bit quiet. They can watch a movie together, listen to music, and enjoy the rest of the ride.

There are several different types of business events that you could have come up throughout the year. With the holidays coming up you could plan a company-wide Thanksgiving meal, a Christmas gala to collect donations for those that are less fortunate, or just a company retreat to improve intra-office relations amongst your employees. No matter what type of business event you’re planning, you shouldn’t forget the importance of corporate group transportation. That mini-coach or charter bus could solve a lot of logistical problems like parking and safety that are often forgotten about during the planning process.
