Alternative Christmas Party Inspiration for 2020
Thursday 3 September 2020
Venue Search London have been working on a range of alternative ideas and event formats, both online and live, which will hopefully provide you with some inspiration and ideas when planning your London Christmas parties for December 2020.
If you have already booked a venue or are keen to look at a live event, then we believe that there is a great alternative to the traditional party format that is worth considering for this December.
Rather than going for a traditional dinner dance format, why not look at a late afternoon conference which could include an internal award ceremony, followed by either a seated dinner or a or a grab and go catering option, with the event ending at around 9.00pm.
With the likely social distancing regulations at one metre plus for December, there are many Christmas party venues in London that have the capacity and room formats that could accommodate such an event, and the conference and awards elements could be live streamed to those unable to attend.
With many offices now having the reassuring biosecurity measures in place, considering staging your end of year celebration or Christmas party in your own office is an option that will put your staff more at ease and is also a great way to deliver a memorable event at a reasonable budget.
Our colleagues at Story Events have an excellent track record of delivering creative and memorable Christmas parties in their clients offices and will be delighted to discuss a wide range of catering entertainment and theming options with you. You can read more about their experience and approach here.
Virtual Christmas Parties
Whilst we all recognise that getting your teams together in person with the necessary safety measures in place remains the best way to reward your staff after a tough year, we recognise that many companies may still have full or part-time working from home policies in place in December.
The key to a successful virtual event is to create an engaging multi-room platform which could include pre-recorded messages from the leadership team and a range of live entertainment options which could include personalised quizzes, online live music, magic shows and chill our rooms. One of our more most popular options on recent virtual events has been the writing and performing of a company song, written and performed by the staff supported by professional team of professional remote musicians.
To make this event more engaging and memorable, our team at Story Events will arrange the delivery of drinks and food two individual homes, which can be complemented with a branded gift.
