What is a reception party?


A reception party is an unveiling party such as the 0th anniversary of the company or the inauguration of the representative.

There are also a wide variety of reception parties, such as film festivals and new fashion brand launches.

Mostly business relationships.


Companies and brands tend to hold reception parties to entertain guests so that they can have a good image of their new products and new representatives.


Reception party outfit



What should you look like if you are invited to the reception bar tea?

Basically, if you're invited to a reception party, try to dress formal.

Men's suits, women's dresses and setups, and so on.

However, refrain from dresses with a lot of exposed skin.

Reception party etiquette


Here are three etiquette to keep in mind when attending a reception party.


1. 1. Bring a souvenir

For reception parties, membership fees are owned by the organizer and attendees may not be charged.

However, even in such a case, it is important to show your awareness, such as bringing a souvenir.

As souvenirs, baked goods, alcohol such as wine and champagne, and flowers are common.

A guideline is around 3,000 to 5,000 yen.


Bring the best souvenirs with the intention of the organizer.


2. Arrive at the venue with plenty of time

Before the opening, you should arrive at the venue with plenty of time to greet the organizers.

By arriving a little earlier, you may have the opportunity to interact with other attendees, such as exchanging business cards.

Therefore, we recommend that you prepare a little more business cards than usual.


3. 3. Watch out for table manners

Be careful of table manners.

There are many cases of standing party style, but just because you can eat as much as you want, it is NG to serve a heap of dishes on a plate.

Please keep an appropriate amount in mind.


Don't be too absorbed in cooking so that you can enjoy the interaction between the participants.


How to choose a party venue

At parties such as reception parties where executives of companies and business partners attend, venue selection becomes very important.

A venue such as an izakaya is not very suitable for a luxurious meeting where executives attend. Formal hotels and restaurants are preferable to that.


What kind of party venues are there in the first place? Also, do you know the advantages and disadvantages of each venue?

Know the characteristics of each venue and choose a venue that suits the content of the party.
