With the December holidays right around the corner, it’s not too late for companies to plan a holiday event. Although timing may be tight, event planners still have many options to secure a great venue, plan fun activities, and coordinate an overall memorable and affordable experience.
Secure a Venue
The most important thing is to quickly decide on a venue and secure it. With a quick turnaround time during the busy holiday season, several venues may already be booked for popular days and times such as Friday and Saturday evenings. However, with some flexibility, planners can still find times that work well for a holiday event. For example, I’ve seen many companies host a Sunday holiday brunch or a late afternoon occasion for employees and their families.
By booking a low-demand day and time, planners can also typically secure discounted rates on the venue rental.
