Christmas Party Planning – Are you thinking you’re late?
Christmas Parties are all about magic, imagination and memorable moments, therefore, you will not be surprised that Christmas Party Planning at Eventologists; having such a busy client portfolio, starts early with planning, imagination, creation sometimes months and years in advance…for those large projects! Christmas trees and décor are often secured 11 months in advance to ensure the right quality, the right height and the right décor is delivered bang on schedule…It’s a fabulous and also frenetically exciting time for us. People are still amazed to discover the schedules we work to but if you look deeper into what it takes to create a magical experience for christmas events it really is not that surprising.
For commercial Christmas decorations we usually start to plan very early in the year and this is for 2 simple reasons.
1 – the clients know that to create something spectacular they need the time to cover all areas in detail. This may be anything from physical logistics all the way down to the final design and installation. For many of our venue and hotel clients we find that as they are open to the public, working around this can be difficult and we therefore need to build this crucial consideration into everyone’s schedule.
2 – you want the best in the market and sometimes leaving Christmas till the last- minute means you get only what is left……Failing to prepare is simply preparing to fail! Don’t leave yourself in a position where you are only able to have what is left by confirming late….christmas is a crucial trading time and leaving anything to chance could mean a lack lustre approach and therefore often a lukewarm reaction from customers.
When supplying our services to clients who are looking to plan and create a extroadinary experience for guests who attend Corporate Christmas parties, we always start to confirm all details early; acts and entertainment, the baubles on the trees, the centrepiece for the tables. This could be as early as March to ensure we secure absolutely the right product and service at the right price
So Planning has only started now – is it too late?
Eventologists are very fortunate to plan events for some of the worlds most well known, reputable brands and even though they are also some of the most organised, many times a christmas party is the last thing on their minds. This is where we come in!
As an event management company who knows how to create events with little notice it is beneficial to our clients to outsource their needs to make sure all is planned to a professional and high standard. You would not believe how many times a compnay may leave the all important Christmas celebrations to people and committees who already have a hectic day- job! We have been able to successfully minimise a lot of stress because of our experience, knowledge in events.
Recently and a perfect example was when a client of ours believed they simply needed some table centres for their christmas party. Following an exploratory
meeting to make sure there was nothing else they needed from our expertise the floodgates opened, resulting in a full 10 page proposal being submitted which included entertainment, venue finding and venue decor all within their budget. It just goes to show that being creative and building a relationship with our clients has been the driving force to our success.
Just think how many people there are out there looking to create a spectacular event just like you are – but thinking you might have left it too late? So keep this in mind when planning your event this Christmas as it is like the old saying goes.
The early bird catches the worm!….if you want the best and still within your budget, you simply have to partner with experts who really know how – and that means now!
Or in this case
The most organised elves……….makes the most epic parties.
