If you want to celebrate the achievements of your employees, or celebrate corporate milestones, a holiday party is a great way to wrap up the year and kick off a new one. Events like these are always great, as they provide an opportunity for business owners to reward their staff, enjoy an informal gathering outside of work, and boost employee morale going into a new year. There are many different kinds of entertainment you can choose from for your corporate holiday party, and bb Blanc can help you execute it perfectly. Ready to plan your corporate holiday party? Here are some important tips to consider.
Holiday Party Planning Tips for Event Planners/Organizers
Plan in Advance
It’s important to plan well in advance for a holiday party, so you can have your venue spot reserved. Other companies will likely be planning similar parties around this time of year, so booking last minute will be a big challenge. You should also plan early to make sure there are no conflicts with your employees’ schedules. They need to know when their official last day of work is, and you need to be sure none of them are going away on vacation before your party to keep attendance high. You can contact the Human Resources department to find out these details, and schedule the party around that information.
Choose the Perfect Holiday Party Venue/Location
Another part of planning your holiday party is making sure that you are choosing the right venue and location for your celebration. A few types that you can choose from include the following:
- Party halls: These venues are dedicated to hosting parties, and they’re great for incorporating your brand, or theme, into beautiful decorations and lights that provide a great atmosphere for entertainment and dancing.
- Out-of-town: Want to take your employees out of the city? Look for a venue that’s new and exciting, and make a full day or weekend trip out of it if you can! Remote locations are also a great place for employees to bring along their families or for a fun getaway.
- Activities: There are many fun activities you can plan for your corporate holiday party including arcade games, paintball, laser tag, trampoline parks, shooting ranges, and more!
Whichever venue you choose, make sure that it is fresh and exciting, and spacious enough to hold the number of guests you wish to invite. You may also want to look for a location that is accessible to all employees, to make transportation easier for them.
Some important questions you should ask before planning a holiday party include the following:
- Is the venue close enough to the main office or where employees live? Can employees carpool or take a cab?
- Is the venue available during or before the holidays?
- Does the venue provide additional amenities to make the service more enjoyable for guests (i.e. meeting room for a formal presentation, etc.)?
Rent AV Equipment from a Live Event Company Near You
After an outstanding year of hard work, you will want to make sure you celebrate your company’s efforts the right way. You can do this by renting AV equipment from a live event company that can set up a beautiful production that they will remember for a lifetime. Employees will be impressed and entertained by the dynamic presentations and ambiance of your holiday party if you incorporate high-quality AV.
Have the Perfect Lighting/Visual Atmosphere
The right lighting and visual atmosphere is important to creating the best holiday party. Everyone should be dressed their best, and enjoy a party that looks spectacular. You can incorporate a theme such as a winter wonderland, flashback to the 80s, or even have a funny Christmas sweater party. You’re only as limited as your imagination when you work with a professional team that specializes in creating such events.
