Hosting Holiday Party in January

CHICAGO – (Dec. 11, 2012) – Kapow, Chicago’s premier marketplace for company events made easy, noticed an increase in companies booking their holiday party in January. Reasons for the shift range from cost savings to making it more convenient for employees.

“We’ve noticed companies choosing to do holiday parties after things start to wind down. It’s not too late to plan and there are many great options still available for company events,” explains Marc Halpin, CEO and co-founder of Kapow.

According to Kapow’s party reservation information, companies are opting to host events in January due to a variety of reasons including cost savings, less stress and more availability from the venues, employees and clients.

For companies thinking about hosting a holiday party in the New Year, Kapow offers four ideas for unique holiday parties to consider for January:

1.    Organize a tasting. Venture from the traditional wine and beer tastings to a wine tasting with chocolate. If you’re feeling more adventurous, opt for a sake or tequila tasting.

2.    Get some laughs. Keep your team’s spirits high after the holidays with a comedy show. We suggest Chicago’s Second City.

3.    Incorporate teambuilding in your holiday party. Get the most out of your event with a teambuilding element such as bowling or an improvisation workshop.

4.    Book a unique venue. Surprise your team by switching from your traditional venue. Explore other great food, drinks and locations.
