Christmas is just around the corner and while COVID-19 continues to present its challenges, that doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate in style with your corporate team.
It’s all about thinking outside the box and having a strong safety plan in place to ensure your delegates can celebrate with peace of mind.
If you’re looking for inspiration for this year’s corporate Christmas gathering, here are five ideas to get you started:
1/ Corporate retreat
Corporate retreats are a great way to reward and celebrate corporate teams, while ensuring everyone is in a safe and controlled environment.
Many venues across the country are offering exclusive hire packages or partial buy-outs for teams who want privacy, exclusivity and safety.
Bells at Killcare is a great option for teams based in New South Wales, offering stunning accommodation and dining options. Further north in Coffs Harbour, Pacific Bay Resort offers vast spaces and modern rooms for corporate stays.
2/ Private dining
With dining and gathering limits still in place, private dining is a great way to bring a small group together for an end of year celebration.
There’s no shortage of spectacular private dining spaces all over the country.
Think outside the box and opt for a penthouse suite, like the brand new ones at Frasers Suites Sydney, to deliver a private dining experience with an exclusive touch.
3/ Soiree at sea
There’s nothing quite like enjoying a bubbles out on the water as the sun sets.
Why not treat your team to a night out on the water, with a trusted charter or cruising company.
Captain Cook Cruises have a range of different options for private groups and a strong COVID-safe plan to put your mind at ease.
If you’re opting for a full vessel takeover, check out Hamptons Sydney, a purpose-built floating event space, split over two levels.
4/ Virtual team building
If delegate numbers or location doesn’t allow for an in-person corporate Christmas party this year, there are still some great ideas to celebrate the end of the year.
Add a personal touch by delivering a corporate gift to each delegate to ensure they feel valued and to help them get in the party mood! Try Merchgirls for stylish company gifts, Cubic Promote for branded merch or Sara’s Garden for an eco-friendly touch.
5/ Gala dinner with satellite events
Another trend we’re seeing in corporate events is having multiple smaller events in a number of locations to ensure each gathering complies with COVID restrictions.
This is a great option for teams that are spread across the country and there are a number of ways to still maintain engagement between events, through the use of digital content and social media.
