SIX INSIDER TIPS EVERY CHRISTMAS PARTY PLANNER NEEDS TO KNOW
Written on the 10 August 2015 by Susan Hamilton
PLANNING the company Christmas party can feel extremely overwhelming. There are often time and budget constraints, and expectations for it to be bigger and better than last year.
Create a 'hype plan'
How will you get the word out there and make sure everyone is excited for the event?
Find a venue with an AV partner
AV is the most important tool used in transforming event spaces and bringing themes to life, but is often left to the last minute.
On-trend styling and theming
Styling and theming isn't just about the odd draping here and there, it should be integrated throughout every aspect of the event.
Ensure that you consider the guest journey from event start to finish - their entrance and the first thing they see is paramount.
Balance your styling and branding
It's a tricky line to toe, striking the right balance between styling and branding.
Entertainment is a major event talking point and can help iron out those potentially awkward moments of stilted work chat between colleagues.
Be smart when asking for feedback
Don't wait and send a survey a few days later because often people won't be bothered or have simply forgotten.
