Each year you will likely find yourself attending several events, and possibly even hosting a few. These events could be anything from your wedding day to a birthday party, or even a corporate party. If you have found yourself in charge of the planning, and organization of such an event, then here are several amazing event trends for 2024 that you need to know, and consider implementing.
Music for events
For hundreds of years, music has been a constant at large events, and the trend has yet to stop. The reason that people have always included music in their events is that it is a great way to set the tone of the event. You can control the pace, and emotion of an event simply by cleverly choosing in which form you wish to play the music. From hiring bands to play live music at outdoor festivals, to hiring wedding DJs to carry the party on into the night, incorporating some form of music into your event is a must. So, whether you plan to use it for the ambiance, to create a specific mood, to help with a theme, as background noise, or to blast through the speakers to create an energetic, upbeat party atmosphere, you should consider including some form of music at your event.
Technical planning for events
In the past, it used to be a nightmare having to plan and invite all your guests to an event. Most of the time you would have to physically write down, and store all the relevant information that related to the event. Not to mention all the handwritten invitations that needed to be created, and then posted. However, thanks to the advancements in technology these struggles are now a thing of the past. In 2024 you will have access to many useful tools such as planning apps, and event finders, along with the bonus of being able to send out all of your invitations digitally. So, whatever event you are going to be organizing, whether it is wedding planning, a small get-together, or a large corporate party, make sure that you are utilizing the technology available so as to make your life a lot easier.
Bright and bold color schemes at events
For several years event colors have been fairly bland, sleek, and regimented. A lot of people had often opted for safe choices such as greys, browns, blacks, and whites. However, this is slowly changing, and by 2024 you will likely see a lot more brighter, and bolder color schemes at events. Not only do these vibrant colors make the whole atmosphere at the event feel more welcoming, and warm, but they can help you visually set a theme, as well as put everyone more at ease. So, if you have an event coming up soon, and you need to find a way to style, or decorate the venue, consider going bright and bold with your choices.
Sustainability at events
Events, parties, and various other get-togethers. All of these have something in common, and that is that they will likely create a lot of trash. Whether it is from leftover food, decorations, empty bottles, or single-use cups and plates. However, people are now much more aware of the environment, and how their actions impact the world we live in. A growing trend for 2024 is figuring out ways in which these events can be held, while simultaneously reducing the negative footprint that is left on the environment, by being as sustainable as possible. This can be done by properly catering to the number of guests that you are receiving, and limiting single-use plastics. Of course, there are many other ways in which your event can be sustainable, but this will vary from event to event.
Minimalism incorporated into events
When people used to host events, one thing that would often happen is there would be a noticeable amount of “stuff” everywhere. Whether it was food, entertainment, or just decorations, there would be things everywhere. Moving into 2024 the trends are veering away from quantity, and focusing more on quality. Minimalism is something that a lot of people appear to be extremely keen on, and it is being incorporated into more and more event settings. So, if you are planning your event, make sure to do your research, and only fill the event with things that you actually want or need there, rather than filling it just for the sake of it.
Food to serve at events
What would an event be without food? Food trends are continually changing, vastly due to dietary trends, and scientific-based research that gets published. However, the food that is found, or laid out at events will generally stay the same, with the exception of a few tweaks here, and there. So, for the most part, any kind of buffet is a safe bet. People love to pick at food and choose exactly how much of the things they enjoy eating they want. Although, here are a few things to consider when moving into 2024, and for your next event that you plan on catering for. A lot of people are choosing to incorporate a vegetarian style diet into their life choices, along with those who are reducing, or avoiding as many animal by-products as possible. People are generally becoming a lot more explorative with their food tastes too. So, if you have the choice of presenting your guests with a more exotic, or uncommon set of food and drinks, this might be something to consider adding to your event.
Choosing the destination for your event
Local events happen all the time. Because of this people are looking more and more at holding their special events in different destinations to help add the wow factor. Although the cost of living has been a struggle in the more recent years, traveling to another destination often isn’t that much more expensive than going to local events. If an event is in a different location, people tend to be much more excited, and determined to go, not only for the event, but the change of scenery too.
If you are planning to hold an event soon, make sure that you consider these top trends for 2024.
