Planning a Corporate Event in Philadelphia, PA

A well-planned corporate event can be used to introduce new people to your company, plan the next stages of growth, or boost morale. However, everyone has horror stories about venues gone bad, and as we all know, the perfect evening starts with choosing the right venue. Here’s what to look for in a venue when planning a corporate event:


Before you decide on a venue you need to decide what the goal is for your corporate event. Are you looking for a host for the annual company party, or is the focus going to be on a select group of executives to do off-site strategic planning? Perhaps you’re honoring an employee for their dedication and hard work.  Every reason is important to us and we are here to make it happen.

Who’s Coming?

An accurate head count is crucial to know if the event venue can accommodate your group. Don’t forget about employees who may bring their spouse or children to the event; knowing your total head count early will guarantee a smooth evening for our staff and chefs so they can provide the right amount of food and ample seating for all your guests.


At the bare minimum, the corporate venue you select should have ample parking, a supportive staff, and a convenient location. You want to find a venue that will adapt itself to your needs, not the other way around. Look for event venues that pay attention to the small details, things like coat check and custom menus. Needless to say, if the staff is difficult to deal with, don’t select that venue.


Conference rooms, upscale restaurants, and even bars have all been used for corporate events. Each offers their own advantages – conference rooms are designed for business, while restaurants allow for a more laid-back atmosphere. The Morris House Hotel brings the best of each venue together under one roof.
