It is always a good idea to go and see the venue in person, to check what it is like and whether the photos that you have seen are accurate, or perhaps taken by a very talented photographer. One thing that professional event planners will always do when they visit a venue is to check that the toilets are up to scratch, which is something that many people overlook.
The most important thing to consider when planning a corporate Christmas party is your team and thinking about the type of thing that they will be most likely to enjoy. Whilst it is almost impossible to please absolutely everyone, especially for large companies, it is a good idea to choose a Christmas party but will appeal to your groups demographics. A young and lively company will be more likely to enjoy a wild and raucous event than a company with mostly older team members.
Christmas is one of the most popular times of year for the majority of venues in London and so popular days will get full very quickly, meaning that venues are not willing to negotiate on prices. However, there are many dates during the Christmas period that are less popular than others, such as weekends and days that are earlier in the week such as Mondays and Tuesdays (as a hangover the day after is much less desirable). Whether you are planning to join a shared Christmas party or an exclusive Christmas party, some days are very likely to cost less than others and so be sure to check with your team and see if any less popular days would work and ask the venues or event producers to see what deals are available.
Before you start planning your Christmas event it is a good idea to ask around your guests and find out where people are travelling from. By simply asking this question you will often win brownie points and if people are travelling from all over London then a central London location for your Christmas party is generally a sensible idea. Remember to check out the nearest stations to your venue or Christmas party and considering whether these will be easily accessible for all of your guests, whether they are travelling from the office or from their homes.
Whether you are planning your Christmas party entirely on your own or using the services of of professional event planners, there will be plenty of opportunities to do something out of the ordinary and surprise your guests. If you have a little bit of time to work on your party then think about theming, additional entertainment, music that will appeal to all of your guests and interesting catering ideas and options that your guests will enjoy. If you are not sure where to start then speak to all of your suppliers and see what they can come up with, or get in touch with the team like Love Events, who can offer free event planning support and advice for larger Christmas parties. It can be a great feeling when you plan a successful Christmas party and receive compliments from all of your colleagues.
