Christmas is one time of the year where companies of all shapes and sizes go all out to impress, and this year is no exception. Many event organisers will be busy curating the corporate entertainment ideas that will mesmerise, inspire and reward employees for the hard work undertaken during the year gone by, and Kennedy should always be at the top of that list as a leading corporate entertainer.
Right, now that your corporate entertainer is sorted, it is important to consider the other factors that make your corporate Christmas occasion an event worth remembering.
Consider the time and date carefully
This is a fundamental part of planning any event, whether it is a Christmas themed shindig or another moment worth celebrating. Liaising with your guests well in advance will help you to select the right date and time for your corporate Christmas event. Generally, companies organising Christmas events leave their party until those last few days before you pack up and leave for winter break but considering dates outside of this small window can ensure you have a greater choice of venues and better use of your budget. Check the availability of your preferred venue first and foremost then check in with your guests to find out more about their schedule.
Planning your event on a day where you don’t have to go into work the next day is preferred, after all there’s nothing more demotivating than a hangover.
Don’t be afraid to ask for feedback
Planning a corporate Christmas event that is better than the rest relies on your guests’ previous experiences, and unfortunately, the majority of festive office celebrations don’t have the best reputation. To make sure your event is enjoyed by all, ask for feedback on last year’s event, you can even compile a simple questionnaire to improve efficiency further. Find out what their favourite part was, what they would like to see again and, of course, what they would like to see the back of!
Keep it unique
Well, it’s a great start opting for the unique entertainment stylings of Kennedy, and your event’s uniqueness can continue when you choose your venue and wider theme. Don’t always choose the tried and tested venues booked in previous years, make an extra effort to get out there and find something fresh and new. Get creative with your theme too, an off-piste inspired alpine ball or a snow covered winter wonderland party are great ideas that say Christmas and break with tradition.
