How to Kick off a Successful End of Year Party
As the year 2019 is gradually coming to an end, it’s very important you take out time to thank your employees, partners, suppliers and customers for their commitment and trust during the annual corporate celebration. Are you going to organize a staff party or customer event, or are you going to share your plans and business goals for the beginning of next year? Having a year end celebration event would be the perfect platform to deliver these inspirational messages.
EIGHT Tips to Help Your Company Annual Party Be Ready for 2020
- Set The Date, Theme and Budget
Since it is December already, it is not too early to book your New Year corporate event date now! Selecting the right date is important and can be tricky, since lots of employees take time out to travel or commit to their personal family affairs. The day and date will affect the number of people who can attend and therefore the success of your event. Many company events are typically held in the period between Christmas and New Year’s. So you have 4 days from the 26th to the 30th for an annual event. The second choice for your annual event would be from 14th of December till the 23rd.
Furthermore, selected the right message and supporting theme is also important. Know why you are setting up the event, know what you want to achieve and make sure your entire organization is on board with the message. Our recommendation is to add positivity to the theme. Make sure you emphasize that you’ve accomplished a lot during the year. Short stories related to the challenges and how you had overcome them go a long way to remind managers and employees of the hurdles they faced and how their ingenuity and innovation kicked in and helped them get past them.
Finally, don’t forget to set and follow a budget. This way, you don’t end up with an event that costs more than planned. To make sure that everyone celebrates the year in the right way, be generous because that value goes a long way in reflecting the employees’ perception of their company.
- Talk About Your Company Objectives for 2020
It is a good time to remind your staff members and partners about the company plans and objectives. The timing is right, and it will certainly get them to work harder, and motivation is the key! It’s probably good to have a light speech reminding employees about the best achievements for 2019, and briefly discuss a 2020 inspirational quote, without bombarding your audience too much into details at this stage.
- Announce Your Company New Year’s Resolutions for 2020
You may be spending plenty of time revamping your company’s strategy for the year ahead, but don’t forget about the needs and goals of your individual employees. You may have a huge annual meeting to discuss the previous year. Toward the end, why not have everyone set three resolutions for themselves related to how they can be happier and do better work? In many cases, when they’re at a company celebration and they’re given the freedom to choose what they would like to achieve for the upcoming year, you will be surprised at the goals employees set for themselves. If you’re a leader at the company, be the first to set those goals. Show them your ambition. Show them how pumped you are. Provide them with insights on how you plan to achieve these goals. Encourage them to come to you for help on how they can achieve their goals. And finally make sure they have fun while they do it.
- Plan a Detailed Agenda for A Successful End of Year Party
Don’t go into the start of the event without a proper agenda, or you’ll end up wasting time and neglecting important considerations. Keep a detailed agenda for the topics you need to cover, timings people concerned, when to serve dinner, when the music should start, and the order in which you need to cover the agenda. Is there is a need for a microphone, a podium, lighting and stereo system? Ensure that acoustics is well covered and the venue organizers that are providing you a space should take care of this from A to Z. fluidmeet is a platform that has a list of event spaces, banquet halls in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, and will give a detailed list of amenities required to help you prepare for a successful end of year party.

Information and motivation is key to look forward to next year. It’s not about pressuring them with data and figures at this early stage; it’s just about enlightening them and making them look forward to the 2020 company goals. If you are planning on recruiting in 2020, then talking about a number of satisfied employees will also be helpful to convince future forces to come to work for your business.
