How to Plan a Holiday Party That Will Thrill Your Team

How to Plan a Holiday Party That Will Thrill Your Team

Hosting a major corporate event can be a game-changer for your company. With the right planning, you can easily boost employee morale, showcase your company’s latest innovations, garner great PR for product launches, and even leave your competitors in awe. Unfortunately, most companies don’t do it right – that’s why 90% of employees would rather take a bonus check or extra vacation days over attending the company soirée. Here’s how to make sure your corporate event doesn’t leave your workers yawning.

1. Hire a professional

Planning a major event requires expertise in managing countless logistical details and planning for things that will inevitably go wrong if you try to do it yourself (like not picking the right theme or not accounting for bad weather). Just as a high-end wedding benefits from a skilled wedding planner, a high-end corporate event requires a professional event planner's touch.

2. Set a clear goal

Every successful corporate event should have a clear goal in mind so that your event remains focused and effective. For instance, if you’re a tech company trying to boost morale after a tough quarter, then your goal is probably to help your team relax and have fun so they can come back to work more energized. In this case, a casino party event with professional dealers, themed decor, and a variety of games like blackjack and roulette could be a good route.

3. Choose the perfect venue

Selecting the right venue is paramount to your event's success. The venue's size, location, accessibility, and setup time can significantly impact the event's overall experience. Ensure your venue choice aligns with your event's objectives and accommodates your expected number of guests.

Avoid venues that are too spacious, as they can make your event seem empty, or venues that are too cramped, leading to discomfort. Additionally, choose a venue that is easily accessible and offers sufficient setup time to avoid last-minute hassles.

4. Don't cut corners

When planning a major corporate event, remember that quality matters. Cutting costs can lead to a subpar event that reflects poorly on your company's planning and execution capabilities. A low-budget or uninspiring event can give the impression that your company is either struggling financially or lacks creativity.

5. Invite an appropriate number of guests

Striking the right balance between a crowded and under-attended event is crucial. Aim for "critical mass," where the number of guests slightly exceeds the venue's comfortable capacity. This ensures that your event feels lively and demonstrates the importance of attendance to your guests.

6. Keep speeches concise

Corporate events are primarily about entertainment and showcasing your company's strengths, not lengthy speeches. If you must include speeches, limit them to a maximum of three key points, but let the event itself do most of the talking.

7. Be innovative

Repeating the same event year after year can signal a lack of creativity and effort. To keep your guests engaged and excited, aim to surprise and exceed their expectations. This doesn't necessarily require increasing your budget; instead, focus on innovative themes and ideas. If your previous event had a casino theme, consider exploring something entirely different, like a murder mystery theme, for your next event.

Hosting a major corporate event can be a powerful marketing tool when executed correctly. By following these tips, you can ensure that your corporate event is a resounding success that leaves employees excited for the next one!

About the Event

30th Birthday Party

After doing a bit of research for a Casino themed 30th bday party we booked with 21 Fun and couldn't wait for the big day. The crew arrived on time and got everything set up super quickly. The manager of the night, Brandon, was very professional and kept things running smoothly all night. Overall very impressed with the delivery and would recommend. Also Debbie was extremely helpful in answering questions and making sure we had all the info we needed.

Office Warming Party

We were having an office-warming party at our new location and wanted to add an extra activity for the guests.Not only did the adults have a great time at the casino tables; the kids were playing as well (the dealers were turning it into a fun math game for them). Running a busy office I have found it very rare being able to book something with ease and not worry about them showing up, and that was the case with 21 Fun (plus the pricing is fantastic for what you get)! If you have any doubts about hiring 21 Fun at your next event, all I can say is do it and you won't regret it!

Poker Tournament Fundraiser

Professional dealers, fun time!

Our school had a poker tournament fundraiser and 21 Fun Casino brought the tables, chips and dealers.

A great time was had by all, and the execution was flawless.

Thanks 21Fun!

Corporate Event

We hired 21 Fun to operate a casino at our corporate event. They did an amazing job. Having them at the party really created a fun atmosphere. They were helpful with first time gamblers and easy to work with. We didn't leave them with a specific floorplan but they came up with the perfect setup. Having the casino was a game-changer for how many people enjoyed the event. I would be happy to hire them again.

I have never done a casino themed party. I was a little nervous. But 21 Fun makes it so easy. They r on top of everything, very professional, and on time. We had a birthday celebration with around 30 people or so and EVERYONE loved the tables. It was soooo fun. Love the dealers. Brandon was the bomb! So fun and entertaining. I’m definitely gonna use them again and strongly recommend. Best party I have ever had!!!!

Awesome Dealers!

Super fun and friendly staff! We really enjoyed playing Craps with Gian. It was our first time and we had no idea what to do. Gian was extremely helpful! We loved his energy, enthusiasm, and sense of humor. We also had the opportunity to meet Ryan at the black jack table. Both dealers were awesome and I recommend them for any party. Thank you guys for a fun night!
