Planning the perfect corporate Christmas party can be extremely gratifying, but we also recognise that any business get-together comes with its trials and tribulations. Fortunately, we understand the importance of a professional party and are here to offer our assistance with a beautiful new infographic:

Also, did you know that Birmingham has the highest Christmas party expenditures per employee on average? A total of £37.06 per employee, compared to Exeter’s £8.76 at the bottom of the table, although other studies place London at the height of Christmas spending, so it all depends who you ask.
In the end, though, it all totals to around £1bn spent nationally by businesses celebrating the festive season.
We hope our infographic has helped you to plan an amazing Christmas this year, but don’t forget to order your Office Christmas Tree with us soon!
