We at The Venue Booker have been talking to both clients and venues across the UK to get a feel for what the demand will be for Corporate Christmas parties in 2020, and what they will look like this year.
Research done by a leading UK venue revealed that 60% of their clients are expecting company Christmas parties to be more important than ever in 2020. After the lock-down and all the uncertainty that still remains, it’s understandable that people will want to let their hair down and get together with colleagues they may have seen very little of throughout 2020!
Many employers will want to thank their teams for their hard work and perseverance at the end of this year. So, Christmas parties may be more of a thank-you than a celebration.
Whilst some venues are taking the view that things could actually be back to normal in December, others are taking a more cautious approach and adapting capacities and menus to allow for Social distancing which is likely to still be in place at the end of the year.
If safety of your guests is a major concern, we have the latest on which venues have attained Covid safe accreditations including detailed information on measures that have been put in place to minimise any risks.
Venues are generally having to be more creative with their package offers. One large Westminster venue is offering their clients a Hybrid Christmas party package so that in addition to min 100 guests at the venue, those who stay at home can join in the fun on-line.
Festive food and drinks hampers are sent out to online attendees and on the night they are given an opportunity to choose playlist songs (can be with a dedication, DJ can announce the songs), create a virtual background/snap filter so that they can take photos and send these to be displayed on rotation on a virtual wall in the room, hang out in virtual lounges for chill zones and chatting and post on an interactive message board.
There are many interactive games and virtual team building ideas to be explored as Entertainment providers and AV companies adapt to the “new normal” for events.
Whether you are looking for an intimate gathering of 20, a larger party for 100+ or if you would like to explore a “Hybrid” Christmas event, we can help you to find the right solution.
We have a wealth of information on Christmas party packages from venues in all major UK cities and everywhere in-between!
