Back in December 2017, for the second year in a row, we organized a Private Boat Party in Bangkok on the Chao Phraya river for one of our corporate client.
The event was made to impress and there to carry the values of one of the key player of the Affiliate Marketing industry, a young and dynamic business where the main companies are trying to seduce the "affiliates" with fun and unique networking events.
Private Boat Party in Bangkok for Affiliate World 2017
The party was organized during the Affiliate World Summit that was taking place in Thailand in early December last year (2017).
After a first successful event with 150 people, as the company grew, this time, they asked us for another boat party but a bigger one that will get the guests talking for the months to come.
For this event, as for the previous year, we had a free pass to organize everything:
- Boat, Staffed ship with a capacity of 250 pax
- Party Models, 10 girls in neon outfit to host the event
- Make Up Artist
- Sound and Light System
- 2 Djs
- Filming Crew and Photographers
- Soft Drinks and Finger food
Party Boat on the Chao Phraya
Most boats available for rental for private functions on the Chao Phraya are either small or huge.
Up to 50 people, you will find a lot of options, from the most traditional ones to luxury yachts.
Then you have large boats used for commercial cruises on the river. Most of them have a capacity of 300+ people, up to 600 guests for some of them.
As the boat we used the previous year was out of the question, we had to use our network to find new options.
After checking about 10 boats, we finally found 2 boats that could be suitable for the event.
We checked every details, facilities and the rates and finally settled for the "smaller" boat.
With a capacity of 250 people, 2 floors, 2 bars and a kitchen on board, it was about the right size for this event.
Corporate Event Staff
Now that we had confirmed the boat, next step was to book the staff for the event.
First, we confirmed the Light and Sound system.
We had to double check the equipment was big enough for a party with 200+ people and at the same time small enough to fit by the stage area.
Plus, as it was a classic cruise boat, we had to make sure the lighting would set on the party vibe and give it a nightclub feel.
As for the DJs, like the previous year we picked the team of Elektro Delikatessen to take care of the music.
And of course, we added a Sexy touch with 10 of our Party Models to welcome the guests and start the party.
All of them dressed with neon top with our client's logo on it.
Party Theme: Full Moon Party
This year event was themed as the Full Moon Party with Neon lights, Buckets, Glowing paint and of course, blasting music.
We brought a make up artist to paint the girls and neon paint for all the guests.
To make this paint glow we added powerful neon lights to cover all the top floor.
And it wouldn't be a Full Moon Party without Buckets of Cocktails available on free flow for all the guests.
Alcohol, Drinks and Snacks
Once again, thanks to our supplier, we managed to save up to 30% on the overall alcohol price.
Considered as "luxury goods" in Thailand and heavily taxed, alcohol can quickly become a big part of the costs, especially when you're talking about hundreds of people.
That's why having a good connection for large quantities is an important part of event planning for this big parties.
Filming Crew and Photographers
Finally, to make this event unforgettable and help spread the word about the brand we needed an aftermovie and photos.
We picked one of the best filming crew in Bangkok that specialize in Clubs, Festival, Parties.
Their crew of 2 filmed the entire event, including drone shots of the cruise and edited a 60 seconds aftermovie.
And for the photos we had 2 Photographers to cover the party and get shots of the staff, guests, girls and highlights of the best moments.
In Sum Up
The event was overall a success and represented the young, fun and hard working team and spirit of our client.
On top of that, most of the guests didn't have much experiences of Bangkok nightlife and parties so it was the perfect showcase for what Thailand have to offer.
As a young company we want pride ourselves in bringing a new fresh touch to corporate events in Thailand with different venues, shows, atmosphere... and overall a different experience that make our client's event stand out from their competition.
