Summer holiday season is upon us, and it might feel as though Christmas event festivities are aeons away but hear us out. Since restrictions began to ease, we’ve been inundated with venue booking enquiries for summer parties, conferences, and corporate events. Many of our most popular venues are already fully booked over the coming months, meaning availability has been slim due to popularity. The appetite for in-person events has increased greatly as normality starts to resume, and the competition to find the right venue for your festive event is greater than ever. Here are some tips on securing the best venue options for your Christmas parties, plus a guide to how our venue finding team can help.
A strong plan
Our clients stand the best chance of securing the ideal event venue when they start with a clear idea of what they need. Before starting your search, it’s best to know your confirmed attendee numbers, date/s, budget, and location requirements. Having a good understanding of your event agenda will also help find the right venue quickly. For example, will guests need bedrooms for an overnight stay? Will there be an award ceremony which requires a stage and PA equipment? Our venue finding team know that plans can change, and we’ll always be flexible to help find a good fit. However, having a strong plan and sticking with it will massively increase your chances of landing the perfect venue. If you’re new to events, we’ll be happy to chat and suggest some festive party pointers to help with planning.
It’s all about the team!
The Flavour Venue Search team have plenty of experience in finding venues for festive events with large attendee numbers. Bigger companies will typically have many people involved in the venue booking decision making process: The community team, PA, EA, or Events Manager might be responsible for the discovery phase, with the Finance and Legal teams needing to agree the package before the MD signs for approval. We appreciate that different colleagues will have their own requirements, so we’re happy to have conversations with all. Introduce us to your team so we can quickly find a venue which makes everybody happy.
Let us do the work for you!
Finding the right venue for your office Christmas party can be a lot of work. Browsing websites, making enquires, awaiting responses, arranging viewings, holding dates, and negotiating packages can be a job in itself. Let our experts make your life easier! We’ve spent many years visiting and researching venues, so we have the knowledge and relationships needed to make fast progress. We’ve already booked several events at many of the venues we represent, so we’ve formed partnerships we can leverage to request favours and excellent packages. Our team comes from both venue and corporate backgrounds, so we understand the factors important to all parties.
The best advice we can offer is to book early. To encourage this, we’re giving away experience vouchers worth up to £200, plus the chance to win an amazing mini break in Malaga for clients who confirm their Christmas 2021 bookings before the end of September.
