The season to be jolly is looking rather different this year. The traditional office Christmas party – mingling over a festive buffet whilst dancing along to seasonal hits may seem a distant dream, yet all is far from lost!  With a little creativity and forward planning, there are still ways to spread a little holiday cheer, so why not bring your staff together and show them that you care by hosting a Christmas party, 2020 style?

Planning a Live Event?

Capacity for parties may be limited at the moment, but depending on where you’re based live events may still be an option for small gatherings. However, even larger organisations can still join in the fun by hosting several small parties, perhaps splitting groups or departments, and enabling new friendships to form.

Abiding by Guidelines

Yes, it’s Christmas and a time to forget the trials and tribulations of the year just passed, but this year the main focus has to be around safety and security. Although hand sanitisers, anti- bacterial wipes and social distancing rules may not be typical party props, they must be factored into any social gathering. Plus, it’s vital to keep up to date with current guidelines and also have a Plan B in mind should anything change last minute.

Choice of Venue

The most reliable way of hosting any Christmas celebration is to choose a reputable venue, one which has been able to spend the last few months preparing and implementing its own safety precautions around hosting live events.  However, if this all sounds rather daunting, let an experienced party planner take the weight off your shoulders and do all the hard work for you.
