5 tips for organizing your New Year’s party

Where do you start when organizing a New Year’s party, New Year’s reception or New Year’s party? A New Year’s outing is the time for a fresh start to the new year to give everyone the same information about company goals and expectations.

  1. Accessible information: when kicking off the new year, giving content is often an important objective. Provide clear and concise information. Break the information down into parts so that everyone has the opportunity to really absorb everything that is important.
  2. Provide interaction: whether in the form of a Q&A and/or breakout sessions, interaction increases attendee engagement.
  3. Team building: people capital is essential to growing a business healthily. Consider in advance what team-building activities you want to include in your New Year’s outing. This could be a short activity like opening with Meet & Connect. or an extended activity like one from the Winter Games.
  4. Fun: Just because serious goals are guaranteed to be discussed doesn’t mean it always has to be only deadly serious. Indeed, a piece of fun and interaction increases the mutual relationship with colleagues. For example, consider ending with colleagues in the Karaoke Caravan to end the day in a fun way.
  5. Size: a team outing does not always have to be grand. Make it manageable and determine the objective beforehand. It can be as simple as organizing a kick-off meeting with a snack or drink, a New Year’s reception or New Year’s drink that is mostly about being together or a company-wide outing with breakout sessions, team-building activities and entertainment in the form of a New Year’s Eve party.

Whatever the objective of the team outing, there is always a mix to be made of content, fun and connection for a powerful outing at the beginning of the year.

There are lots of things to do. We went for bubble football. Which was surprisingly hard. After just 5 minutes, we were all pretty much exhausted. Luckily, there are many mini games you can play with bubble football. So we had no trouble using the remainder of our time. Be aware of scratches on your knees when playing bubble fotball, they are exposed when falling.They also have a bar there, which is fantastic after match in warm weather. Oh, and no alcohol allowed before playing.
Response from the owner: Hi Sondre, thanks for your review. What can we improve to earn 5 stars? 🙂

Helemaal top!
Response from the owner: Thanks Mats!
This was great fun, we were doing bubble ball as a party of a bachelor party and had some great laughs and were heavily exhausted after those 20 minutes. Our hosts Tom and Jelle supported us really great and supplied us even with water in order to not have us dry out in those sauna temperatures. Thank you so much, guys 🙂
Response from the owner: Thanks for your great review!
