As summer comes to a close, September brings a ripe opportunity – the chance to think ahead to the holiday season and get organized. Once late October rolls around, it feels as though the months fly by with little time to get anything done, let alone plan a holiday party! Planning and executing a fantastic holiday party is a gesture of gratitude towards one’s team. It’s a way to thank all of the hardworking individuals for a great year, and get everyone pumped for the year ahead.
Why Now is the Time to Plan Your Company Holiday Party
If you start planning the holiday soiree in early fall, every booking detail will go smoothly. Your stress level will be low to non-existent. The holidays may seem far off right now, but undoubtedly they’ll be here in the blink of an eye! Get organized and plan your company’s holiday party now to enjoy these benefits:
Event Venue Availability
Few things will add stress to the holiday season quicker than trying to book a holiday party venue a few weeks out. Many companies plan last minute, therefore if your company books the holiday venue in early fall, your chances are extremely high of booking the dream venue exactly when you need it. Rather than having to compromise on the date and location, you can have the party exactly when and where you want.
The early bird gets the worm, or in this case, the discounts. Venues prefer to have a full calendar as early as possible and will reward early bookings with discounts more often than not. Not only will you find venue discounts, but there’s also the possibility of catering, beverage, and other discounts as well.
Focus on Executing Well
As it gets closer to the date of the party, rather than focusing on finding the venue and planning, you’ll be free to focus on the details and the execution. Give your team a holiday party they will immensely enjoy and remember! Be the company the top talent wants to work at for a variety of reasons including the amazing holiday parties.
Give Everyone Something to Look Forward to
If you book your holiday party early, you’ll be able to give your team advance notice of the date and time, ensuring a good turnout this year. Additionally, your team will have something to look forward to, to keep them motivated as the season gets busier!
Ending the year on a high note will leave the team feeling satisfied, motivated, and ready to tackle the next year! There are so many benefits to planning the holiday party in the early fall; it’s a wonder more companies wait until the last second!
