Why Smart Companies Outsource Their Virtual Holiday Party Planning

Posted by Natalie Simmons on Sep 15, 2021 9:30:00 AM

We know how it goes. Your boss suggested you plan your company's virtual holiday party in-house. Your boss thinks it will be easy and fun for you, not necessarily thinking about everything else on your plate or how much time it takes to organize and execute a great virtual event. There's a lot more to it than just sending out a Zoom link!

Here are 3 good reasons to outsource to a trusted virtual event planning partner.

Your company's end-of-year celebration is a great time to lift everyone's spirits, bring the team together, and ensure employees feel celebrated, appreciated, and special. But if you're going to do it well, you want to make sure you have the right plan, activities, and most of all... the right partner.

Here are the top 3 reasons to trust the experts with a virtual holiday party.

1) Better virtual activities, entertainment, games, and programming.

You know a good way to show your team you care about them? Offering them a choice of well-produced, thoughtful, and engaging activities for your virtual holiday party.

From social connection activities to holiday-themed games and entertainment, your virtual event planning partner will make sure that your event conveys that special feeling you're going for. 

 

2) You don't have to sweat the technology.

Wrangling technology can be the biggest headache, source of anxiety, and nightmare for most in-house event planners. Did you send the right link? Did you create the breakout rooms correctly? Is this going to work? Or are you going to have to pull a Ron Swanson in the middle of the day?

Virtual event partners know how to do this because it's their full-time job! That's why we take it off your plate entirely. You were hired or selected to plan the event because you understand people and know how to bring the FUN. So, stop stressing and leave the technology to the technical wiz kids who know how to execute, test, troubleshoot, and most of all, seamlessly deliver an amazing event. That's what we're here for!

 

3) Professional hosts ensure a better event flow.

Surely, we've all been at an event that felt like it was rushed or dragging. And on a virtual event — YIKES! — it's even worse. People tune out, check their email, or exit the event entirely.

Of course our hosts are energetic and personable, but they also earned the title of "master of ceremonies" for a reason!

They manage the flow of the event, keep your activities on schedule, and make it seem effortless for all the attendees. Our emcees are experts at digital events. They manage the technology AND the programming, providing a perfect mix of structure and flexibility to make sure the event runs like clockwork.
