The Checklist For Planning A Corporate Xmas Party

Spread the love

There are certain companies that mandate year-end Christmas parties, and there are others where the work colleagues get together and plan one by chipping in some cash together. Likewise, there are Christmas parties that are planned months in advance in meticulous detail, and there are parties that are hatched out at the very last minute. Regardless of where your corporate party stands on these spectrums, we have you covered! Below are the three most important things you should be looking out for:

  • Start with the idea – whether you are planning for an informal party at a waterfront restaurant Melbourne or are planning for something more extravagant, you need to first start by deciding exactly what you want to do. Sometimes, there will be guidelines from your bosses, but usually, employees tend to ultimately decide what the party will be. In this case the type of party can basically define your guest list, venue and the other basic details of your party. Do you want a small celebration for you and your colleagues to let off some steam at the end of the year? Or are you planning for a big celebration to thank your company partners and clients for their continued support? These two examples alone should paint very different pictures of a party in your mind.
    • Pick a date – once you have an idea for your party, it is time to pick a date for your party. Keep in mind that when picking a date, you do not want to aim for a definitive date, but a space of two to three days. This is because at the start, what you want is a deadline for your preparations, so that you can move along with everything else. Guests can have other commitments, and so can your preferred corporate venues Melbourne – especially if you are planning to host the party in a few days or weeks. Keep in mind that weekends can be especially busy around Christmas time, so you might have to move the date to a weekday if you wait too long to decide.
      • Look for a venue – you might already have ideas for a venue, but there are many things to consider when it comes to a venue. The aesthetics are not the priority most of the time – the availability of the venue, the facilities it provides and its size are all more important focuses when planning an event. Likewise, keep in mind that a venue can be already occupied for the day (or if you followed the above advice, days) you decided to host the party – in this instance, it makes less sense to move the date than the venue. Therefore, it is often ideal to have a few ideas with regards to where you can host the party.event-services
