A company holiday event is a very important moment for any organization. They often are occasions to celebrate your company, your colleagues, and the achievements of your team over the past year. These events also help set the tone for the coming year and, if done correctly, create a sense of community among team members. Careful attention to the smallest of details will be noticed and appreciated, even by apathetic guests.

It goes without saying that any company party requires a tremendous amount of forethought and planning -- and a smart place to start is deciding on the right venue.

As every company is different, it is important to plan an occasion that fits the unique attributes of your organization. Hotels, in particular, have experienced event staff on site to take a lot of the burden off your plate.

Having a built-in support system at the venue ensures that you will have time to concentrate on other details that will make the event fun, safe, and something your colleagues will long remember.

Secure Appropriate Venue Accommodations
Whether you have already selected the venue for your holiday party or are still considering locations, it is critical to work closely with your venue managers to accommodate your specific needs. Each and every holiday celebration should be unique. They may be easy to implement, but don't settle for cookie-cutter options. Instead, create a tailored, seamless experience for your guests -- with a few surprises to knock their socks off.

Little Things Mean a Heck of a Lot
Staffing is one item that is often overlooked, but it should be your first agenda item with your venue. Be sure to confirm that there will be the appropriate number of staff to support your event flow. Nothing puts a damper on a party more than your guests having to wait in long lines for cocktails, wasting time at the coat check, or having a delay in retrieving their car from valet parking.

A Feed for All
Always work with the venue to design a tailored menu that all guests can enjoy. Food is the lifeblood of any gathering -- if the music or the conversation is bad, the food had better be good. It is best to offer a wide range of food options that will appeal to all palates. If you're looking to try something new, break from the traditional setup with a variety of fully stocked food stations placed throughout the venue, each overflowing with a bounty of hand-selected cuisines and flavors. This is a great way to create curiosity among your guests, and it allows everyone to try a bit of everything.

Entertainment Should Fit the Venue
Be sure that the venue is able to accommodate your vision. All venues are not created equal, so it's important to confirm what is possible before booking any entertainment. Music is always a great element of any gathering. Whether you're considering a band or a DJ, you ultimately want to find a vendor that can play a variety of genres from several decades -- you will be the hero when your guests realize they can make song requests or recommendations all night long.
