Start planning your business year-end function today

Spring has arrived and it’s time to start preparing for the summer holidays, which means planning your company party and booking the ideal year-end function venue while it’s still available! Here are some tips from Idle Winds, our leading function venue and restaurant, just 14kms from Fourways. Start today: For many businesses, the end of the year is a very busy time – so trying to plan a year-end function and keep on top of work can be an impossible task. Start your planning process as early as possible in the spring so that it’s easy and stress-free. Compare venues: Venues book up quickly for this time of year, but that doesn’t mean you should go with the first one you see. Get quotes from at least three different venues to make sure that you’re getting value for your money. Be sure to compare their services, location and ability to host your group. Know your food requirements: Is someone in your company a vegan or vegetarian? What about anyone with religious or allergy-based dietary requirements? Your venue needs to be able to cater to all members of your group with ease, making sure that there are tasty options for everyone! Activities: If paintball is more your company’s style than a sit-down dinner, why not choose a venue that has teambuilding facilities? This is a fun and relaxing way for your group to blow off some steam, enjoy the summer sun and bond with one another. Make a date: There’s a lot happening at the end of the year and various staff members may be booking early holidays or are being invited to year-end functions held by clients and partners, so it’s important to make sure you send out invites as soon as you’ve booked your venue. This will also help you make final decisions on catering, décor, gifts and activities early.
