5 Event Design Trends

5 Trends That Will Shape Corporate Events This Year

January marks the start of a new year with endless possibilities. It’s a great time to decide what you want to accomplish and make predictions about the future. 

At Sublime Event Designs, we’d like to give you a sneak peek into the corporate event trends that everyone will be talking about in 2024.

(But shhh…don’t tell anyone! We want to give you a head start.)

Event Predictions for 2024

1 – Technology will move events forward. The future is now with AI and virtual reality getting integrated into more events this year.

Drone formation making a smiley face above an event.

2 – Drones will take branding to new heights. Grand finales will feature brand logos or custom messages projected into the sky with drone formation technology.

Beach lounge with colorfully lit tables and chic furniture.

3 – Everything old will be new again. From fashion trends to music and events, vintage is back, but with a new-age twist. Think 80s-themed welcome nights with nostalgic décor and virtual reality components.

Mocktail beverages with blueberries and rosemary garnish.

4 – Signature drinks will be mocktails. The rise in wellness culture has led to an interest in drinks sans alcohol. From August 2021 to August 2022, non-alcoholic drinks in the U.S. saw $395 million in sales — a year-on-year growth of 20.6%, according to Nielsen. For a crowd pleaser, choose Rosemary Blueberry Smash, which combines muddled blueberries, honey, lemon juice, sparkling mineral water, ice, and a rosemary garnish.

5 – Monochromatic designs will be used to create visual interest. Event designs will feature different shades, tones and tints of a single hue. Since Pantone’s color of the year is “Peach Fuzz 13-1023,” peach should be on your short list of considerations.

Whether these predictions will come to fruition, only time will tell. But we’re here to help if you’d like to make them a reality at your next corporate event.
