Planning Christmas Events? Read this first!


Christmas events are coming! Are you ready?

Well, someone had to be amongst the first to mention Christmas events, and for good reason! It’s about time you decided upon a date for your 2018 Christmas party, and started sending out your ‘save the date’ emails. Venues are getting booked up faster than ever before, and you don’t want to be given the one last miserable option do you?

With holiday season almost upon us, we understand that everyone is busy, time strapped and would rather delegate than actually have to sit down and organise the Christmas event. There’s so much to think about!

Well, your luck is in. I Need Event Staff are here to make organising a memorable Christmas event this year even easier for you with some advice on the most important things you need to be thinking about.

‘Whether you’re planning a small staff party or a large client event, you need to make sure you have the right event staff . They will help you show the company’s appreciation to the attendees’ – I Need Event Staff

Busy schedules

It’s no surprise that this time of year sees busy schedules. There are plenty of Christmas events for people to choose from, and that’s why your event needs to stand out. We want people to be accepting your invitation, and putting it straight into their diary. That means you have to show them they’re in for a treat. It’s important everyone attending your event knows their evening will be a memorable experience. Making this year’s Christmas event really special, not only thanks your staff and clients, it also makes sure invitees are talking about your business and waiting for the next event with anticipation.

At I Need Event Staff we want your party guests to be wowed, from start to finish and we’re going to tell you how you can do that!


More and more organisations are choosing to forgo the traditional receptions in favour of giving their guests a unique experience. Have you thought about hiring a boat and taking your staff on a river cruise? How about arranging a murder mystery evening with the perfect chef creating a meal for everyone to enjoy? A cookery class? Wine tasting? Escape Rooms? Ping Pong Competitions? There are so many wonderful experiences to choose from. It may be worth asking your staff to vote on what they think would be the most fun.

If you go the extra mile and give your guests a ‘first experience’, your party will be the one they talk about for years to come. Having the perfect staff to help your event run smoothly with take your party to another level. Attentive and helpful staff are worth their weight in gold when it comes to impressing.


Choosing the perfect location for your annual event can be a hard decision, however the venue is worth spending time on. Visit the venues, imagine what it will be like on the night. Is it easy for people to get to, and get home from? Is it big enough? Will the space feel small when 350 people are inside?  An incredible backdrop, or somewhere that’s on the top of everyone’s list to visit makes for a truly memorable event. Museums are a winner!


Last but not at all least is food! Food has a habit of making or breaking an event. It always makes an impression. Take time to decide on your menu, hire a chef you know you can trust, and try to use local, seasonal produce where possible.  The food you serve at your Christmas event will be the icing on the cake when it comes to the experience your guests have.

Bringing a wow factor to Christmas events shows guests that your company appreciates and values them.

Australia has an abundance of wow factor venues, food and experiences. Your task may be harder than you think!
