It's October – which means people are already scrambling to book the perfect spot for their work Christmas functions. Venues, catering, alcohol, transport – the amount to cover is immense. Unfortunately, it also means organisers can end up out of their depth – and out of pocket – when it comes to entertainment.
How can you make sure your Christmas party is a night to remember without breaking the company ledger?
Use all-in-one companies
If your Christmas function is going to have entertainment, you could end up having to secure:
- PA hire and management
- Lighting systems
- Sets or staging
- Video hardware (either to document the night or for projection)
- Tech advice
In so many cases, event organisers will source each of these from a different provider. With people like the CMS Australasia team, you can get everything in one package – all your audiovisual requirements met with just a single point of contact.
It saves time, stress and money – three things that often run out as we approach the end of the year.
Transform a space to suit your staff
Another roadblock that event organisers find is booking the venue. Every year we have more businesses – roughly 3 per cent more every 12 months, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics. That's more people looking for that concert hall you were eyeing up, and longer wait times to book the perfect restaurant.
By using an all-in-one audiovisual production company, you don't have to worry.
By using an all-in-one audiovisual production company, you don't have to worry. At CMS Australasia, we can transform any space to suit an event or theme. In the past, we have taken corporate offices and given them makeovers for science fiction, tropical and even monster-themed annual events.
With a team working for you that can make any space great for the end-of-year Christmas party, you get more freedom to choose a venue that fits your budget, and can even opt for hosting the event within your own premises.
Find the best deal
The other drawback of using multiple contractors for different elements of your Christmas party is the cost. In many cases you'll be dealing with industries you're not well-versed in, and run the risk of overpaying for simple services.
CMS Australasia's end-to-end offering means you get clarity and transparency on your costs, getting your project in on time and under budget.
