Whilst a pretty obvious one, the truth is confirming numbers is incredibly important, allowing you as the planner to make reservations for the venue, food as well as the all-important transport. While many will make a verbal agreement to attend it is important that you get signatures an deposits in some cases, ensuring you and your company do not end up at a loose end on the day of the celebration.
Set the date in stone
With Christmas being the busiest time of year for most food, drink and entertainment establishments, it is advisable that you make your bookings as early as possible, allowing you to enjoy more choice and more time to haggle down on price. As well as its financial benefits getting things booked in early also helps with retaining numbers, allowing staff members the time to arrange things like childcare and the logistics of the event.
Although free drinks and food is enough of a persuasion for anyone you want to make the Christmas party much more than simply a night out, making it about the company, it’s employees and a celebration of the past year's endeavours. This is why as the organiser it may be a nice idea to arrange some speeches and recognitions, ensuring everyone returns to work after the break feeling appreciated.
For many planners transport can be the biggest headache when organising an event, requiring taxis, coaches and limos to conduct various trips to and from numerous spots. At Limo Broker this is what we specialise in, offering limousines, chauffeur cars, coaches, buses and even sports cars at affordable rates.
