How To Choose The Right Corporate Christmas Party Venue

Aug 18, 2007
Lets face it, your company Christmas party is one of the most important nights of the year for your team, so it's vital to choose the right corporate Christmas party venue, get the venue and location right and your company will be sending out a positive message to it's team - get it wrong and the message you send out will have a negative effect and you may as well have not bothered!

So what do you need to take into consideration when you are selecting the right corporate Christmas party venue? Think about your team, your guests and think what they will enjoy - the last thing you want to do is to be known for hosting a party that David Brent from The Office would be proud of! Do your research and get it right.

Have a realistic comprehension of what your budget can buy you. When you go out for a three course meal, what do you normally pay? Then take this, add in an amount for entertainment, perhaps some drinks and then you start getting an idea of a realistic budget.

Talk to a company that specialises in sourcing corporate Christmas party venues, they will have a very clear idea of what your budget can get you. Do you want a Christmas party exclusively for your company? If you do you'll need private dining and entertainment and will have to budget accordingly.

Do you want the thrills of a huge themed party night with entertainment but know you don't have the budget for that? If you don't mind sharing with other companies, then you could attend one of the many spectacular cost effective shared Christmas party nights that are hosted around the country.

If you are having a private party think about how you are going to entertain your guests. Entertainment is a great ice breaker and can turn an average Christmas meal into a great memorable Christmas party, so look into the different options that your budget can afford. Talk to a company that specialises in corporate entertainment and they will give you a whole host of exciting options for you to consider!

Think about dates very carefully. You will never get all of your team attending at Christmas, it's a sad fact of business that people have social lives and sometimes can't attend (another reason for booking your company Christmas party early!). Talk to your key team members and look at the dates that they can all make, it's not going to send out a positive image if your top person can't make the party, it's virtually a green light for next years excuses!

One of the biggest pieces of advice that we can give you is that if you want a corporate Christmas party venue that is good or if you want a peak date, a Thursday or Friday in December, then book early and we mean very early! Some party venues sell their peak dates in January, so you have to do some very forward planning here!

It's not always easy to get your company Christmas party right, it does take a good deal of work but if you team up with an experienced corporate entertainment company, they will guide you through all of your different options and lighten your work load!
