You might think there is plenty of time before you even need to think about your company holiday party this year; however, you would be surprised at how quickly time flies. Venues and entertainment book up FAST during December and January, making now the perfect time to begin planning. Here are several reasons why you should be starting to plan your company holiday party now:
1. Securing Your Preferred Event Date at Your Preferred Venue
Just about everyone starts their holiday party planning around the same time, and securing a date and booking a venue is first on everyone’s to-do list. By jumping early on the planning, you have a better chance of snagging your number one choice of event date and venue, saving yourself a lot of stress from having to possibly compromise on the date or location.
2. Booking the Best Entertainment
The best entertainment options, such as an epic casino party, also book up quickly during the holidays. If you want to wow your guests, you need to plan several months ahead and book your entertainment before dates start to fill up, especially if your event lands on a weekend in December when US Poker & Casino Parties sells out year after year, for example.
3. Throwing an Amazing Holiday Party Takes Time
It can be challenging to come up with something fresh and new that will leave an impression every year. If you have your venue and entertainment booked ahead of time, you can then focus on the rest of the details and ensure they are equally amazing such as décor, music, centerpieces, enhancements, etc. You will give your creativity some time to really start flowing, making this year’s party a truly unique and memorable.
4. Give Guests More Notice
The holiday season is busy for everyone, with people traveling and taking time off. Giving guests plenty of notice will allow them to plan accordingly so they can still attend your event and fulfill their other obligations during this time of year. It will also help you have a better idea of the number of people attending so you can properly plan for it.
