2022 Christmas Parties
This year, the world has really opened up again. This means that finally, this is the first year since 2019 that companies will be able to celebrate Christmas in-style and in-person! To see what this might look like, we recently attended the London Christmas Party Show, where event providers and companies come together to get a feel for their 2022 Christmas Party ideas! We exhibited our event, The Office Games: Christmas Gameshow and we received some really positive feedback! However, the main thing that we learnt is what exactly a 2022 Christmas Party will look like!
What will a 2022 Christmas Party Look Like?
Starting off with perhaps the most important thing we learnt, it’s when people book! We found out that 30% of people book their Christmas Party in August and 21% in September. So, with August just around the corner, the time to start planning is right now! After all, you don’t want to start planning in a couple of months only to discover that everything’s booked up! Save the hassle and start now!
Furthermore, we also found out that 45% of people have their Festive Event on a Thursday, and 31% on a Friday. After all, what’s better than an end of week party! You’ll have the whole weekend to recover, maybe even 3 days if your boss is kind enough to give you the Friday off!
In addition to all of this, we also learn that 60% of people have a seated meal at their Holiday Party. This means that mobile events and experiences will be extremely popular this year, so if this is something you’re looking for, you’ll want to get enquiring now! (Psst…our Christmas Comedy Club would go great with a sit-down meal!).
The final thing that we learnt was that the average budget per person this year is between £80-£120. The good news is, this means that the world is your oyster! There’s so many experiences available at these prices that you’ll be able to find something that not only works for you and your team, but also one that will create lasting memories!
