KEY QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

  • How many guests are you considering to invite, budget and where you want to go is a good start!
  • Consider the ‘feel’ of the event – are you looking for something formal or relaxed catering such as a BBQ or bowl food
  • Entertainment – some venues include entertainment in their packages otherwise you will need to bear this in mind when allocating your budget

Christmas Parties

We can organise all types of Christmas Parties from those held at the more traditional hotel venue, to bars, restaurants and not forgetting those unique and unusual venues.
For smaller groups we can book ‘Join A Parties’ or a semi private space in a Bar or Restaurant so you can still enjoy the Christmas buzz irrelevant of numbers.
Tipstart looking early! Key dates get booked up really quickly; some clients will rebook their Christmas Party early in the New Year to guarantee their preferred date.
To ensure the best availability is open to you contact us as early as you can.

THINK OF YOUR KEY REQUIREMENTS

  • Preferred date – check with the key people that need to be there that the dates are good for them and maybe check with colleagues which night of the week they would prefer.
  • Budget – this helps us when sourcing the venue as we can then contact the venues that fit your brief and budget.
  • Tip – check whether the budget you are given excludes or includes VAT.
  • Number of guests – realistically check how many guests will attend
  • Location – are you looking for somewhere close to your offices or are you happy to travel a little further away?
  • Tip – consider where your guests will be travelling back to at the end of the night to ensure that the location is convenient and encourage people to attend.
  • Party atmosphere – are you looking for a formal sit down dinner with dancing and entertainment or are you looking for a more party vibe focusing on drinks and dancing?
  • Theming – are you looking to theme the room – bear this mind when considering your budget.

KEY QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

  • What are you looking to gain from the team building day?
  • Budget – be realistic, you are investing in your team, the benefits from the day will exceed your financial costs
  • Tip – If you are booking the activity alongside a conference make sure the venue can offer the space for the team building you have planned.

Social programmes and add on events

Building business relationships and networking often happens in social time after or before conferences or meetings itself. We can enhance your event by providing add-on activities such as gala dinners, drinks receptions, and innovative cultural activities related to the events location.

... and don’t forget that we can book all of the above as part of our free conference venue finding service.
