Now, I know what you’re thinking. Christmas in May?!
It may be 7 months away, but for businesses that specialise in the hospitality sector, preparing for Christmas this early is extremely important. Now is the time to be creating a Christmas marketing plan and breaking it down into weekly managable tasks including who does what. Why start now? Because the sooner your event is planned, the less pressured you will feel. Try not to be the one that leaves it to the last minute.
Across the industry, preparation is key. Chefs need to begin deciding on their delicious menus, information should be displayed on the website along with the booking terms and conditions. Also, by allowing early bookings and accepting deposits for a table which not only will secure the booking but may prevent a cancelation. Which leads on to my next point: event space. If you are planning on theming your Christmas events, make sure you source your decorations and props now as they will be at a discounted rate.
Oxygen Graphics are currently working with Brownsover Hall and Draycote Hotel, in Rugby, in regard to their Christmas promotions. This means that they are already prepared for their busiest time of the year.
A little snippet of what’s to come from Draycote Hotel’s 16 page Christmas brochure designed by Oxygen Graphics.
This three panel folded brochure showcases all the events and menus available over the festive period last year at Brownsover Hall including champagne & canapés, a five course meal, a firework display and a Scottish Piper!
