At the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center, we plan a lot of events, and we love dreaming up ideas for holiday parties with clients. Companies tend to raise the festivities up a notch and bring extra cheer to the season. And for good reason – it’s a time to celebrate!

Here are 3 tips to help make your holiday party a smashing success.

1. Plan Early

As most planners will agree – the earlier the better! Getting your details together earlier will allow more time to prepare special decorations or to book entertainment. It’s less stress on you and the vendors involved! Our expert event planners have all the tools to help and will make it as seamless as possible.

2. Celebrate Team Accomplishments

One of the reasons for a holiday party is to celebrate a team’s accomplishments from the year. This is the time to honor star associates, show extra appreciation for projects checked off the list, and share your gratitude. Add fun by giving away gifts or share a champagne toast.

3. Feature an Interactive Activity

Interactive activities like a food station can bring a little extra “wow” to your event. Our culinary team can help with a prime rib carving station or holiday coffee bar. Consider a photo booth, dance floor, or karaoke. We’ve also seen arcade games and casino games at our hotel.
