We know what you’re thinking, ‘It’s only September!’ but, in the events business, you’re already slightly behind the curve. Here’s why you need to book your Christmas party venue now.
Don’t stress though, because there’s still time to organise the perfect festive event – if you act now! Planning your annual Xmas party should be a fun task, so it’s time to ensure your event’s success by getting the ball rolling sooner rather than later. Here are 5 reasons why you need to book your Christmas party venue now.
1. You’ll get a wider choice of dates
Xmas venue availability can be tricky, especially as we inch closer and closer to December. Make sure you don’t get stuck with November or midweek dates and book your Christmas party venue now. You don’t want to get stuck with a second-rate venue because your chosen space wasn’t available during the mid-December peak, do you?
2. You’ll have your pick of the venue crop
On that note, we’d just like to emphasise how much more variety there is when it comes to Christmas party venues in September than there is in December. You’ll kick yourself for leaving things too late when you’re scrambling to find a suitable space in November. Make sure you get into gear and tick things off that planning checklist sooner rather than later.
3. You’ll be able to start planning
Here at VenueScanner, we make venue search, discovery, and booking easy. That way, you can invest more of your valuable time on the fun bit: planning the perfect Christmas party.

4. You’ll give your employees something to look forward to

5. You’ll have time to work out the budget
Scrambling for caterers, decorations, entertainment, and lighting really doesn’t put you in a very good bargaining position. Go into negotiations with your suppliers feeling confident as high supply and low demand gives you the upper hand. Still struggling with the party finances?
