5 Ideas for Planning a Great Holiday Party
Haven’t planned your business’s office holiday party yet? Don’t panic!
With the help of our experienced and flexible event marketing professionals,
any integrated marketer can bring their holiday party to life. Below are five celebration
concepts that our team can help you organize for an event that will have your staff
talking long after the party is over.
Get Outta There
Holiday dinners can be costly and challenging with venue rentals and
holiday schedules—especially if you are planning at the last minute. Instead, consider
opting for something unusual and outside the norm. What about an interactive
game where your team must work together (teambuilding!) to escape a locked room? Even if the room itself isn’t holiday-themed,

Take a Different Approach
Maybe you’d like to add another special daytime event to the schedule.
We can work with you to design a special afternoon surprise. Bring in cupcakes,
have a sundae party or host a holiday happy hour right in the office. In

appreciate your thoughtfulness during the year-end crunch.

elephant gift exchange. Your team, though, could take this to the next level if

staff. Team swag is always a good option, and we can help you find just the
right promotional item. Alternatively, if your company prides itself on
work/life balance for employees, bring in a couple of chair massagers for an
afternoon, or give everyone tickets/passes to local events, a live show or the
For a more meaningful holiday gathering, arrange for your team to volunteer with a local charity such as a soup
kitchen, children’s hospital or by adopting a local family from your community.
Not only will the charity be grateful to have so many extra hands available, but
the experience will stay with your staff long after the event ends.
Recognize Outstanding Work
A holiday party is a great time to celebrate your team’s accomplishments from throughout the year. Marketers can work
closely with executive staff to determine what individuals or teams should
receive recognition for their work above and beyond completing assignments or
meeting customer needs. We can work with you to select and produce custom awards,
plaques or trophies that you can distribute for a beautiful, lasting memory.

business and team, give us a call. We’re happy to help you figure out the best
type of event and any accompanying materials that will make the holidays
memorable for your hard-working team.
