Company Christmas Event: 5 Strategies to Make It Unforgettable

Organizing a company Christmas event requires meticulous attention to detail and careful planning. In this article, we will explore five key elements that will contribute to the success of your event. Keep reading to discover more!

Christmas Set Design: Creating a Magical Atmosphere

The design of the Christmas set can radically transform the event, creating a magical and engaging atmosphere that intertwines with the festive spirit. Investing in custom corporate decorations, such as Christmas trees with brand colors and lights, not only creates a festive environment but also reinforces the company's identity, promoting a sense of belonging among employees.

Choosing the Perfect Venue for Your Company Christmas Event

The choice of venue is crucial for a successful company Christmas event. A strategic location can enhance the overall experience by offering versatile spaces for activities and promoting interaction among participants. You may consider hosting the event directly at the company headquarters, provided the facility is suitable. Alternatively, choosing another venue that provides high-quality catering services ensures an unforgettable culinary experience.

A surprise detail

In addition to captivating set design and a suitable venue, a surprise touch makes the company Christmas event truly special. Introducing Christmas-themed entertainment or inviting special guests will positively surprise participants. This unexpected element will not only make the event unforgettable but also contribute to creating an atmosphere of joy and camaraderie among colleagues.

For example, a surprise live performance with artists or involving employees in interactive themed activities can enhance your event.

Family Day for an inclusive company Christmas

An innovative option to make the event even more special is organizing a Family Day. Involving not only employees but also their families creates a warm festive atmosphere.

A tangible example of success is the Family Day organized by Manaly for the company 3B spa. This event offered recreational activities for all age groups, creating a shared experience that conveyed company values and solidified corporate identity among employees.

Comprehensive support means having a reliable ally who takes care of every detail, from creative conception to the practical management of the event.

La Biennale di Venezia: a journey through contemporary Art and Design

La Biennale di Venezia is one of the most prestigious and longest-running cultural events in the world, attracting art lovers, artists and critics from every corner of the planet. This international event, also known as the Venice International Film Festival, has a history spanning over a century and has left a significant mark on the contemporary art scene. In this article, we will explore the history, curiosities and current aspect of the Venice Biennale, putting the emphasis on both the artistic and the technical and design aspects.

History of the Biennale di Venezia

The Venice Biennale was founded in 1895 as an art exhibition to promote Italian art and culture. Initially, the event focused only on the visual arts, but over the years it has expanded to include other disciplines, such as architecture, film, theater and dance. Its aim was to create a bridge between artists and the public, offering a platform for the exhibition of the most innovative works of the time.

Curiosities about the Biennale di Venezia

One of the most fascinating curiosities of the Venice Biennale is its system of participation and selection. Each country organizes its own national representation and selects the artists to be sent to the Biennale. This feature makes the event a real triumph of different cultures and artistic visions, allowing visitors to immerse themselves in a variety of artistic expressions from all over the world.

Another interesting aspect is the awarding of the best artists. The international jury awards prizes such as the Leone d'Oro for the best national participation and the Leone d'Oro for the best artist of the exhibition. These awards are coveted and often earn the winning artists fame and prestige.

The Biennale di Venezia today

Today, the Venice Biennale has grown into a major event with multiple venues and a diverse range of artistic disciplines represented. The exhibitions are hosted in various pavilions, exhibition spaces and theaters throughout the city of Venice. Emerging artists and international celebrities mingle among the works, creating a lively atmosphere of cultural exchange.

Another relevant aspect of the current Venice Biennale is the integration of technologies and design into art. Many contemporary artists use technological innovation as an integral part of their work, creating interactive installations and multimedia works that engage audiences in a whole new way.

The design of the exhibition spaces themselves plays a crucial role in the overall experience of the Biennale. Architects and designers are called upon to create environments that enhance the works of art and offer the public a suggestive setting for appreciating the works on display. The harmony between the art and the design of the spaces is essential to create a coherent and engaging narrative.

In 2021, Manaly curated the Chilean Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale, presenting an extraordinary and refined work. The installation consisted of a wooden volume colored electric blue, with a deliberately provisional character, conceived as a sort of "room of wonders". This space has collected 500 testimonies, transformed into as many paintings, which illustrated moments of daily life in the José Maria Caro neighborhood in Santiago de Chile. This work has demonstrated how it is possible to restore the history of a community through visual art, without the need for many written words.

The Venice Biennale is much more than just an art exhibition; represents a fundamental moment for contemporary art and offers an overview of global creativity. Throughout its long history, it has been able to adapt and embrace new art forms and new technologies, remaining one of the most influential and respected cultural manifestations in the world.

materiali sostenibili

The sustainable materials favored by Manaly designers

The design industry is increasingly focusing on environmental sustainability, trying to adopt eco-friendly materials to reduce the impact of creations, especially temporary ones, typical of our sector, intended for events, fairs and exhibitions, etc. These productions can generate a significant environmental impact due to the production of waste and energy consumption.

In this article, we'll explore three of Manaly's designers' favorite sustainable materials and see how using these innovative solutions is revolutionizing the exhibition industry.

PEFC certified wood and Legno Veneto

Wood has always been one of the most used materials in design and architecture, but its production can have a significant impact on the environment. Here in Manaly, we have embraced environmental sustainability for years, so much so that we became part of the Veneto Wood Consortium and, subsequently, obtained the PEFC certification. PEFC guarantees that the wood comes from sustainably managed forests, respecting environmental, social and economic standards; Legno Veneto, on the other hand, is produced using exclusively trees from Veneto forests, minimizing transport and the environmental impact associated with this process. Whenever possible, thanks to the use of these sustainable materials, our designers create structures and furnishings with an eco-friendly history, contributing to the conservation of natural resources.

A tangible example can be found in the project created for Veneto Agricoltura, in which tradition has been enhanced through a "green" approach, demonstrating how sustainability, aesthetics and functionality can coexist harmoniously with nature. Read more here!

Sustainable materials: stabilized moss

Another sustainable material used by our designers is stabilized moss. It is a form of natural greenery that undergoes a special treatment to preserve its freshness and softness over time, without requiring maintenance or water. Preserved moss not only adds a natural and organic touch to design creations, but it is also an environmentally friendly choice, as the stabilization process uses less energy and resources than other forms of vegetation conservation. This unique material is ideal for green walls, decorative panels and interior fittings, creating a relaxing and natural environment without sacrificing the well-being of the ecosystem.

Manaly has used it expertly and creatively on multiple occasions. Two examples are the CTS stand at the ITMA fair in Milan and the HGears stand at Eurobike.

Linoleum is another material loved by Manaly's designers for its sustainability and versatility. Unlike plastic and other synthetic materials, linoleum is mainly made from natural raw materials, such as linseed oil, resins, cork powder and natural pigments. This biodegradable material is an environmentally friendly choice for floor and wall coverings, as it does not release harmful substances into the environment and requires less energy to produce than similar synthetic materials. Furthermore, linoleum offers a wide range of colors and finishes, allowing designers to create sustainable aesthetic solutions without compromising style and functionality.

The floor of the Zara pop-up created for the Milan Fuorisalone, in which the main themes were the brand's innovations from a sustainable point of view, was created with Linoleum. Read more  here!

The materials described above are just a few examples of how sustainability can be integrated into the creative process. Choosing to use them for our stands demonstrates how sustainable design can be a driving force for a better future, where beauty and ethics come together to create a healthier and more planet-friendly environment.

Rediscovering the past to build the future: the value of the corporate museum and Heritage Marketing

In Italy, the concept of "corporate museum" came to life in the 1960s, when companies such as Pirelli, Martini, Richard Ginori and Alfa Romeo began to create corporate collections and archives, which were later transformed into corporate museums. Since then, other important museums have emerged such as the Barilla historical archive, the Eni archive, the Alessi museum, the Salvatore Ferragamo museum, the Milan water plant, the corporate museums of Kartell, Piaggio, Ferrari and Campari.

But what is a company museum and what is its purpose? Read the article to find out more!

What is a corporate museum?

A company museum is a cultural institution that focuses on the history and development of a specific company or industrial sector. Through exhibits, displays and permanent collections, a company museum tells the story and evolution of an entrepreneurial organization.

This type of museum offers a unique perspective on businesses and industries, allowing visitors to explore the changes, the evolution of technologies and the social and economic transformations associated with business activity. Often, a corporate museum is affiliated with a specific company or group of businesses that share a common history or business sector.

The exhibits inside can include historical objects, documents, photographs, machinery, prototypes, products and promotional materials. Through the use of multimedia, videos, testimonials and interactive narratives, the company museum makes corporate history accessible and engaging for the public.

Museimpresa, the Italian Association of Corporate Archives and Museums, has been bringing together archives and museums of Italian companies, some still in business, others not, for over twenty years, creating a circuit of visits, events and meetings that makes them lively places. Currently, the association has over 100 museums and archives of large, medium and small Italian companies... an authentic story of Made in Italy to be proud of!

What benefits does a corporate museum bring to the company?

A company museum has multiple purposes. Let's see them together!

  • It preserves and promotes industrial and corporate heritage, enabling people to explore the history and evolution of businesses and industries.
  • It plays an educational role, providing learning opportunities and stimulating curiosity about the entrepreneurial world.
  • It is a Heritage Marketing tool, a marketing strategy that uses a company's history and heritage to create an emotional connection with consumers. The company museum can be seen as a key component of this strategy, as it showcases the authenticity and legacy of the company, creating a connection between the past, the present and the future. Through Heritage Marketing, businesses can leverage their history and heritage to build a positive reputation, build consumer confidence and differentiate themselves from the competition.

The top 5 of Italian business museums

Museo Branca: this museum tells the recipe of the famous herbal liqueur from four continents. It is housed in the historic factory still in operation, representing a unique example of a company operating in the heart of Milan.

Museo Ducati: this museum combines the history of motorcycling with that of the town in an enthralling journey. The seven media rooms feature a red helmet, a symbol of the space, which also hosts conferences. The museum itineraries include the history of production Ducati motorcycles and their socio-cultural context, racing motorcycles with their relative trophies and a path dedicated to the company's significant moments. Upon booking, it is possible to visit the Borgo Panigale factory, where visitors can observe the assemblies, tests and the famous racing department.

Galleria Campari: it is an interactive and multimedia museum, located inside the Liberty building of Sesto San Giovanni, which is the first authentic Campari factory, built in 1904 by Davide Campari. A digitized corporate heritage and in a multifaceted cultural deposit that exceeds 3,500 works among those on paper.

Museo Lavazza: in Turin, the Lavazza space allows you to embark on a sensory-emotional journey into the global culture of coffee, also with the support of the first intelligent coffee cup that allows you to activate installations and multimedia content and memorize the visitor's interactive journey. In the museum, intimate and evocative, the main stages that have marked over 120 years of the company's history are retraced.

Museo della Liquirizia: in Rossano, in the province of Cosenza, is Amarelli, an Italian company with a history that extends over several centuries. This museum chronicles the four hundred years of liquorice production and the eleven generations that have contributed to its tradition. In the 19th century, Calabria boasted an industrial district with over 80 companies linked to this plant.

manaly legacoop

Manaly returns to be part of Legacoop

We are thrilled to announce the return of Manaly, in the Legacoop association, the National League of Cooperatives and Mutuals. After many years of experience and independent successes, Manaly's choice to re-associate demonstrates the value of joining the League and seizing the opportunities it offers.

Who is Legacoop and what does it do?

Legacoop is an association that has been committed for 125 years to dynamically and effectively support the economic, social and civil protagonism of cooperative enterprises. Currently, Legacoop brings together over 15,000 cooperative enterprises present in all regions of our country and in various sectors, with the aim of creating development and wealth, always placing people and the territory at the centre.

The association develops a wide range of services and projects aimed at promoting the birth and growth of cooperative enterprises. Furthermore, Legacoop undertakes to spread the cooperative culture, enhancing its distinctive principles and supporting the economic, social and civil role of cooperative enterprises through representation activities. The main objective is to respond to the needs of people, who form the nucleus of cooperative enterprises.

Advantages of belonging to Legacoop

Being part of a large organization like Legacoop means having a stronger voice and greater weight in facing the challenges of the sector. Furthermore, its members can benefit from tax breaks, access to subsidized loans and participation in specific projects and tenders.

Legacoop allows cooperatives to get in touch with other cooperative enterprises, creating opportunities for networking and collaboration. This network can foster the exchange of knowledge, mutual learning and sharing of best practices.

Finally, the association organizes training and professional development programs for members (including management, leadership, sustainability, innovation and social responsibility), enabling them to acquire specific skills and knowledge to successfully manage cooperatives.

All of this therefore contributes to improving the competitiveness of cooperative companies and promoting their long-term sustainable growth.

The value of the cooperative network

Cooperation is at the heart of Legacoop's philosophy and represents a fundamental value for the companies that are part of it. Working together to achieve common goals brings benefits on an individual and collective level. Cooperative ethics promote transparency, fairness and democratic participation, creating an inclusive and responsible work environment.

Manaly has always valued people and respect for the environment as central themes of the cooperative, creating a competitive advantage in customer loyalty and in tackling complex projects. The cooperative has embarked on a new phase since 2009, investing in technology and culture to accelerate growth. But that's not all, Manaly is a modern company that believes and invests in people, hiring young people and integrating them into the company's decision-making, creative and operational processes to build the company's future.

The decision to return to Legacoop reflects Manaly's commitment to promote cooperative values. This synergy will allow it to benefit from the resources and opportunities offered by Legacoop, while at the same time contributing to the growth and strengthening of the entire cooperative movement.

Vicenzaoro: the story of a fair with an international breath

Vicenza, also known as the “city of gold”, happens to be a real jewel.

Our city can already boast a good reputation for being the cradle of Palladio... but the latter's architectures are not the only pearls it loves to show off. Over the years, it has become famous for the Gold Fair (Vicenzaoro), an international event, a point of reference for the goldsmith and jewelery sectors.

Continue reading the article to find out more about Vicenzaoro!

Vicenzaoro between history and tradition

According to tradition, the first documents regarding the prosperity of Vicenza's goldsmith production date back to 1300 (precisely to 1399, i.e. the act of constitution of the Fraglia degli Orafi di Vicenza which at the time brought together as many as 150 craftsmen).

At the time, the skill of the Vicenza goldsmiths was already appreciated by the Venetian nobles and by the Church which, periodically, commissioned them to create extremely precious artefacts. Thanks to the increase in demand, the Vicenza goldsmith's production began to evolve, causing the workshops in Vicenza and Bassano del Grappa to multiply.

However, the sector took off in the 1800s when, alongside the artisan workshops, real companies began to be born, small in size and generally family-run. In fact, they must be credited with having been able to project this art into the future, reaching very high levels of workmanship and always remaining at the peak of creativity over time. A centuries-old tradition, therefore, from the craftsman to the industry that has given Vicenza the title of "city of gold" and international fame.

Vicenza currently produces a third of the entire Italian goldsmith work!

Vicenzaoro today

For several years, Vicenzaoro has been the most important goldsmith trade fair in Italy and abroad. The numbers confirm its success: over 1,300 brands from 35 countries, always keeping the goldsmith tradition of this city at the center and becoming its most modern evolution.

The inevitable consequence was that Vicenza also became the home of the first Jewelery Museum in Italy (one of the few in the world!), which is housed in the Basilica Palladiana, created by Exhibition Group Spa with the support of the Municipality of Vicenza.

January 2023 edition - the real restart

The arrival of covid has affected the entire trade fair sector, including the gold fair: in 2020 both editions were skipped and instead restarted from September 2021, but with certain measures and restrictions to be respected.

From the point of view of the set-up, we can say that the real restart was seen from the edition that has just ended as for the three post-pandemic editions (September 2021 - March 2022 - September 2022) the stands created were pre-fitted stands (to meet the difficulties of the period), while for this first edition of 2023 the stands are once again personalized.

Manaly has followed the construction of 9 stands and some common areas of the fair. This involved a great deal of planning work but also internal planning and management, as all the stands belonged to the same event.

As always, the fair was sold out, filling all the pavilions and confirming all the major national and international exhibitors.

Let's sum up our 2022!

This year too is coming to an end and it is time to sum up the past months through an analysis of what has been.
Why? Because we want to be able to start the new year in the best way by achieving new goals.

What happened in 2022?

The balance sheets at the end of 2022 say that the MICE world (organization of travel linked to conferences, fairs, events, congresses) has even exceeded expectations, even if not with pre-Covid volumes. Statistics state that a good 2023 is therefore expected but with a full recovery in 2024.

But what happened in our Manaly in this last year? Let's see it together.

  • We can state that the results achieved in 2022 have returned to the levels of the pre-pandemic year, with a year that will close with a turnover of approximately €2,600,000, thus exceeding the turnover of 2019.
  • Attention to corporate sustainability has always been a cornerstone in our company and, during the pandemic, we launched several projects that have finally seen the light this year: after joining the ForestaOroVeneto Regional Innovative Network (RIR), we have continued the collaboration with the Veneto Wood Consortium of which we are now officially members. In addition to the Legno Veneto certification, which guarantees the origin of the wood from the Veneto region, we have obtained the PEFC Chain of Custody (CoC) certification, which guarantees that the wood and tree origin of the material contained in a product actually comes from sustainably managed forests.
  • Precisely thanks to our certifications, on the occasion of "Caseus", the most important regional event on the world of cheeses promoted by the Veneto Region, we created the first Legno Veneto and PEFC certified stand in a short supply chain. 
  • Our team has expanded into various departments, thanks to the inclusion of young and highly specialized figures, a sign of the company's ongoing commitment to putting people at the center of the cooperative's interests and values. The recruitment of young people and their integration in the decision-making, creative and operational processes of the company are fundamental elements in building the future of the company.
  • A new layout and an update of internal processes have been studied for our warehouse. These have been actions that have allowed the logistics department greater control in the preparation phases of the various construction sites, increasing productivity and reducing the margins of error.
  • Finally, we have renewed and expanded our carpentry by introducing two new cutting-edge machines to perfect the quality of our workmanship: thanks to the purchase of an automatic edgebander and a new 5-axis CNC machining centre, we are able to develop projects more and more personalized for our customers.

Towards the Manaly of the future

So all we have to do is celebrate our 2022, ready to face the new year with enthusiasm and full of new goals. The first, for example, concerns digitization in the company: in fact, we have started a process for the development of management software that will make it possible to digitize information and order documentation between the various departments, so as to increase the level of control, management and intervention in all operational phases.

We believe that it is essential to periodically stop and look back to understand and evaluate what has been done, only in this way will we have the possibility to face the future with the right awareness.

We are proud to be able to say that all the actions achieved so far fully reflect the values ​​and corporate mission of Manaly, which we promise to carry forward also in the new year together with friends, customers, partners and suppliers.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS from all the Manaly team!


The corporate event as a marketing tool

Although we live in an increasingly digital and virtual world, the corporate event remains the best solution to affirm and increase brand awareness and strengthen the sense of community, involving participants in a concrete and emotional experience that creates strong engagement.

We have explored the topic in this article, read it to find out more

Why is important to organize a corporate event?

There are many reasons why a company should include the organization of events in its communication strategy.

Indeed, a corporate event:

  • creates value, enhances the image of a company, product or service;
    generates notoriety, improving its positioning;
  • it allows versatile communication, as a multidimensional and multichannel tool;
  • it is able to reach its target thanks to the fact that it takes place live, creating an aggregating, empathetic and at the same time selective communication;
  • it allows you to differentiate yourself from competitors, it is in fact more incisive than other forms of communication and can have easier access to the media through media relations activities;
  • creates profit, generates new flows (tourism, sales, etc.).

How do you make a successful event?

The corporate event is a complex and articulated tool that requires planning, management, coordination and a lot of creativity.

The realization of an event is divided into three phases, let's see them together!

  • Pre Event: in this phase all the strategic planning activities are set up, from the identification of concepts and objectives, to the planning and management of all the basic elements and the necessary logistics (positioning, period, duration, market, location, schedule , resources, investments, expected results). Furthermore, this is where all stakeholders are involved through communication and promotion.
  • Event: the focus here falls on on-site management and coordination; the goal is to create an active experience aimed at increasing the number of visitors and stimulating interaction during the event.
  • Post-Event: in this last phase, memory and loyalty must be stimulated through the reporting and dissemination of the results.

Why we have to trust an event manager?

Every new event must have within it elements capable of making it unique and unforgettable… and although already defined and tested, achieving what has been agreed in advance on the day of the event is not something to be underestimated, but a task to be entrusted to a professional.

This is how Manaly deals with events!

To create a successful event, the preliminary phases aimed at finding the correct communication strategy, in line with the customer's expectations, are essential.

Once the strategy has been defined, a meticulous planning, organization and coordination work by the Project Manager follows, which then flows into the project execution phase, in which what was previously planned is implemented.

Nothing must be left to chance! In fact, the experience of Manaly's craftsmen and foremen allows them to supervise all construction sites in Italy and abroad, guaranteeing a high level of control and the ability to intervene and manage any unforeseen events.

At the end of the event, this is evaluated as a whole together with the client, examining the quantitative and qualitative aspects. The achievement of the set objectives is verified, the level of customer satisfaction is measured and the perception of the brand by the participants is analysed.

Digital technologies at the service of the event

Although the human factor always prevails in an event, technology today also plays an essential role in this area. Digital adv, social campaigns and direct mail before the event are essential to increase the engagement of the participants.
Video projections and augmented reality are stimulators to entertain, amaze and excite. Finally, it is possible to consolidate relations with the participants thanks to the sending of post-event thank-you communications, stimulating the memory through photos and videos.

Creating a corporate event is therefore a fundamental action to be included in the promotion and communication activities.

If you need to organize an event or a stand, you can rely on us at Manaly, for over 40 years we have been supporting companies in identifying the best expression solution. Contact us!


The future is sustainable: Manaly is officially PEFC certified!

Creating, designing and building a quality product, thinking about the well-being of people, the growth of the territory and respect for the environment that surrounds us is not only a priority, but it is the greatest challenge that Manaly has set itself.

Our journey towards corporate sustainability has finally reached another major milestone: Manaly is officially a PEFC certified company.

What is PEFC?

The PEFC, Program for the Endorsement of Forest Certification, is an evaluation program of forest certification schemes present throughout Europe. It is an international association, of which Italy is also a member, through which the levels of sustainability of a forest are certified. This association was born in 1999, with the precise aim of protecting the owners of small tropical forests who had not managed to obtain certification. PEFC Italia protects forests, olive groves, urban greenery, poplar groves and trees in many areas of our territory, all with a view to a sustainable future.

Manaly's commitment to a sustainable future

After joining the Veneto Wood Consortium, an associative project of companies and institutions that aims to enhance the local wood supply chain, Manaly can guarantee its customers that the wood and tree origin of the material contained in a product comes from forests managed sustainably.

Manaly has been adopting a "green" approach for many years to ensure maximum respect for the environment, committing itself daily to the disposal and recycling of the material used. Manaly's continuous attention to environmental sustainability has led the company over the years to implement some good wood management practices and to carry out improvement operations within its carpentry workshop, always with a view to sustainability.

Taking care of our forests is not something we can do alone: ​​currently only about 10% of the world's forests are certified for sustainable management, so we still have a long way to go and responsible choices to make. For example, when we are looking for a specific product, one of the simplest ways to protect our forests is to look for the PEFC label on the product itself: when it is present, it means that the raw material (wood) comes from a PEFC certified forest, i.e. a forest managed with the strictest environmental, social and economic requirements. A forest that will also have the opportunity to get to know future generations! Choosing PEFC certified wood means contributing to the reduction of carbon dioxide, protecting the environment and biodiversity.

This type of wood has complete traceability: from the area of ​​origin, to processing, up to the sale. It is an ethical choice, which in addition to protecting those who are part of this association, deals a severe blow to the illegal activities with which entire areas are deforested without criteria.

Unsustainable wood: what are the risks?

Unsustainable forest management involves a number of risks, involving:

  • animals;
  • plant;
  • people;
  • environment.

The intense consumption of paper and wood, without subsequent reforestation, inevitably leads to deforestation. Forests contain water, produce oxygen and absorb carbon dioxide: cutting trees at a higher rate than the growth of new plants leads to the loss of biodiversity, the extinction of many animal species and the worsening of global warming.

What are the characteristics of a PEFC forest?
futuro sostenibile

The guidelines of this association state that the PEFC forest is based on the following characteristics:

  • protection of plant and animal species present in the forest in respect of biodiversity;
  • respect for the rhythms of growth of the wood;
  • reforestation of deforested areas;
  • attention of indigenous peoples, workers and landowners.

Here in Manaly we use PEFC certified wood, because we believe not only in fight for the use of renewable resources instead of exhaustible ones, but we are aware of the effects that a sustainable wooden structure has on the environment and on the reduction of CO2. By building with certified wood, we encourage the regeneration of forests and their conscious and eco-sustainable management.
