Staff Christmas Party It’s July. It’s cold and Christmas seems a long way off. So why start planning the staff Christmas party now?

Here are 4 great reasons.

1. Less stress and pressure

The pre-Christmas period is a frantic time for everyone. There is so much to do. Work gets busier. There are Christmas catch-ups with friends and if you have children, there are all of their end-of-year commitments as well.

With the staff Christmas party organised and booked now, you’ll have less to do in the lead up to Christmas. Now doesn’t that sound nice?

2. Saves time and money

Leaving your Christmas party booking until November (or later) means it can be hard to find a venue that has room for your group. Ask anyone who has been in this situation. They’ll tell you about the countless phone calls to find a venue and the outrageous prices some opportunistic venues charge desperate businesses.

Booking your staff Christmas party early means you are more likely to get your preferred venue. Plus some venues have special offers for early bird bookings.

3. Secure your preferred day and date

Friday and Saturday nights are the most popular nights for holding fun Christmas parties because no-one has work the next day. This gives staff the opportunity to let their hair down and have a great time. So if you want to reward your staff with a great Christmas party, book early so you can secure your preferred day and date.

4. Securing great entertainment

Like the venue, the best entertainment is quickly booked out. While staff enjoy the opportunity to chat and relax together, providing entertainment helps the party atmosphere last all night. Sadly, booking entertainment is often forgotten in the pre-Christmas panic. By thinking ahead, you will have everything organised so you can be confident everyone will have a great time.

Popular Christmas party entertainment options include a DJ and dance floor, roving magicians, a band, acrobats, photo booths, comedians and caricaturists.

Where business goes to party

WatervieW in Bicentennial Park offers great value Christmas party packages that are available for you to book now. They are suitable for groups of 45 people up to 500 people.

Save yourself hassle and worry by planning your staff Christmas party early.
