Granted, even corporate events can be recreational and relaxing, but even these have their own standards of etiquette. It should be remembered that the goal of etiquette is to help you feel comfortable as well as professional. Proper etiquette at corporate events will help guests feel welcome and at ease. This includes not just proper dress, as indicated on the invitation, but also unwritten rules of behavior. It is important to show respect to people who have devoted time and effort to organize the event you are attending. By the same token, the host must make every effort to devote quality time and attention to each guest so that they feel welcome and respected.

To ensure that a corporate event, regardless of format, becomes an enjoyable and memorable experience for all who participate, it is important to learn the skills that will help you be a good guest and good host:
