There are all kinds of award ceremony occasions from the end-of-season party for a minor league sports team to a star-studded event like the Oscars. Not all awards ceremonies have thousands of guests gathered or a gala atmosphere, but they all have their most valuable players and most memorable moments. Most awards presentations must be arranged ahead of time. We can help you prepare for yours whether you’d like to reserve one of our eclectic banquet rooms or pick up catered meals to bring to another menu. One thing’s for sure – a ceremony organized with some help from Buca di Beppo will certainly leave your awardees feeling recognized and your organization invigorated!
Why Hold an Awards Ceremony?
When somebody in your initiative has been doing an excellent job and you want to do more than simply congratulate that colleague for the victory, an awards ceremony may be in order. After all, this person is an example for everybody on the team. Presenting awards at a special ceremony is a good way to honor employees, customers, peers, volunteers, athletes and artists who have shown outstanding commitment. In many organizations, routine awards, such as plaques for years of service, are given out at ceremonies alongside larger awards for acts of service. Whether they’ve spearheaded a successful fundraiser, completed an innovative new project or just participated in a difficult program, an award can benefit both the recipient and the organization as a whole. Awards ceremonies make people feel recognized and appreciated. They reinforce the idea that good work is rewarded. They may act as an incentive and motivate others to always strive for excellence. A special event can be particularly motivating but if it’s more convenient or appropriate, you may choose to give an award during another event not designed specifically for this purpose such as an annual meeting.
Planning an Awards Ceremony
Depending on the size and what kind of event you have in mind, you might want to divvy up the planning of it among members of a committee or delegate an official organizer. You’ll have to decide what kind of presentation or entertainment there will be. Will you have a formal speech, a slide show or a casual picnic vibe? Will the award be a printed certificate, a plaque, a medal or a trophy? Aside from the award itself, attendants to these events may expect to receive some delicious food during the ceremony, such as any of our Italian specialties at Buca. No matter the scope of the ceremony, organizing an event from start to finish can be overwhelming. The Buca di Beppo staff can help. When it comes to food, for example, they’ll definitely have you covered. For a company-wide gathering, classic party trays that feed up to 20 a piece would be the perfect fare. For a more intimate presentation, a multi-course private meal in one of our banquet rooms may fit the bill. Keep in mind that the ceremony doesn’t have to be “formal” to be an amazing event.
