Where will you hold your 2019 corporate holiday party? Of all the event planning details that go into throwing a great holiday party for your team, selection of venue is a critical piece. The fall and winter holiday seasons are hectic, and the Christmas season in 2019 is short: Only three weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas! So being able to secure an attractive venue will not be a sure thing. To get the venue you want, book it well in advance of the season. While everyone else is still planning their fall company activities, get ahead of the curve by organizing your holiday corporate events now. Here are some of the top advantages to planning and booking your holiday party before Labor Day:

The benefits of booking your holiday party in August

Get The Date You Want

If you wait until September to start shopping holiday party venues, you will have fewer choices for dates and times. Start your search today and you’re likely to get the date you really want. You will also probably secure exactly the time of day you prefer for your event. When you wait until the last minute, you’re more likely to be stuck with a time-slot of 4pm on a Tuesday. Early booking gives you greater flexibility on the date and time of your event. This will please your guests and  will likely result in a better turnout!

Book an Impressive Venue

If you wait until fall to start planning your corporate event, many of the more interesting venues will be booked. Our own yacht charters tend to book up starting in September, for instance. In addition, great vendors like inspirational speakers, and entertainers also start to have their schedules filling early in the Fall. When you want to book certain vendors, speakers, or live performances, having a date set will make it much easier to secure them. Plus, if you have a large group coming, you will need to make sure that your chosen venue can accommodate them on the date specified.

Lower Your Stress

Planning your event well ahead of time naturally brings down the stress level. Locking in your preferred venue allows you to aggressively start to complete all the subsequent planning steps that are driven by venue. Giving the guests plenty of notice about your party also allows them to lock in the date before conflicts start to pile up (it is a busy social season!). Holiday events should be fun for everyone, so you do everyone a favor by organizing your party now.
