We know that getting tasked with organising the Christmas party can be a bit of a clanger, and so instead of booking an obvious option like the local pub or function room, why not think outside the box?
You don't need to work with car enthusiasts to take advantage of the superb facilities at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge. This three-storey venue has a range of events spaces, activities, exhibitions and dining options. Whether you're booking a small gathering for your team or organising a big bash for the entire company, the events team will be more than happy to help.
While many Christmas dos concentrate on the party element of the evening, Mercedes-Benz World allows you to have a fun day out. Inside, colleagues can try out the realistic F1™ simulator and imagine they're on the race track alongside the likes of Lewis Hamilton. Or, jump on a simulator alongside your work friends and race each other. There are also exhibitions and race screenings to take a look at, too. Outside, of course, is the race track where you could book a real driving experience for your team and take the day to a new level.
There's also the option to turn the event into a team building day, serving a two-course lunch in one of the corporate spaces which come with all the equipment needed for meetings, presentations and refreshments. This could be a great opportunity to go through everything your company has achieved in the last 12 months, before gearing up to celebrate that night.
Speaking of which, Christmas parties can be held in one of the private dining spaces or even take over the entire building. Expect a range of packages which cover drinks, dinner and a DJ, while roaming entertainers, photo booths and a light-up LED dancefloor can also be laid on.
