Planning the Ultimate Gold Coast Work Christmas Event

Don’t fall victim to the common mistake of organising your work Christmas party at the last minute. Get proactive and start planning now so you have ample time to lock in the right Christmas party venue for hire on the Gold Coast before they all get snapped up during the popular holiday season.

If you’re looking to throw an unforgettable Christmas party to show your employees how much you’ve appreciated their hard work throughout the year, then we have some helpful planning tips.

Finding the ideal party venue for hire

Before you get ahead of yourself, you’ll need to lock in a venue so you know what space you have to play with. This is why it’s important to organise your Christmas party as soon as possible so your guests have enough time to RSVP and you can get a rough idea of numbers.

Here at GCTC, we have multiple party venues for hire that can accommodate groups big and small. Better yet, we can provide first-rate entertainment for you and your guests as you celebrate the festive season.

Party at the races

Wish to try something new and edgy for your party? Then consider choosing a venue that offers live horse racing for you and your colleagues to enjoy. Horse racing exists in a league of its own and can offer an unmatched level of excitement and sophistication for your event.

GCTC offers world-class horse racing that will be sure to inject some energy and style into your event. Encourage partygoers to attend wearing their finest outfits to match the classy ambience that only the races can create.

When you book with Gold Coast Turf Club, you can indulge in the high spirits of the lively races against the backdrop of an elegant formal banquet. Give your guests the option to engage in some friendly competition and organise a betting pool, or simply enjoy the spectacle as you mingle over mouth-watering food and drink.

Plan a menu package to impress

Your selection of food and drink can make or break your Christmas event so it’s important to organise a menu that will have your guests coming back for more. GCTC can package a delectable cocktail menu with your choice of a mouth-watering buffet or plated meals.

Make sure to let us know in advance if there are any special dietary requirements so we can tailor the menu to accommodate.

You can also join us for our annual Festive Feast on any of the following four dates:

Our Early Bird Special is only $145.00pp until the end of July. This package has been tailored to suit your needs and embraces the Christmas cheer for an unforgettable party! The event is hosted in our Event Centre, located on the southern end of our track’s home straight with a large lawn space, and is sure to deliver a prime race viewing experience. Secure your Christmas Party today for 2019 before spots fill up.

Choose a party theme

Once you have your party venue for hire and menu sorted, you should consider adding a theme to your event to add to the entertainment. A couple of popular ideas include:

Casino theme

The classic casino-theme is a much-loved party idea and allows guests to fire up their competitive spirit with popular casino games such as poker, blackjack and roulette. GCTC offers party venues with ample space for you to set up any casino hire equipment you choose to bring.  The interesting twist here would be to give away special prizes instead of physical money for winners to take home.

Encourage guests to dress up in their cocktail best to further that air of sophistication that comes with being at the casino or races. This could easily be adapted to a James Bond theme for those looking for a Casino Royale vibe.

Fantasy theme

When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die! But when you host an awesome fantasy-themed party, everyone wins! In an age where franchises like Game of Thrones are hot topics in virtually every office, hosting a work party inspired by such is sure to get your colleagues’ attention.

Stoke the fervour of fangirls and fanboys in the office by splitting them up into major houses to compete in pop-culture trivia and other mini games inspired by the genre. Each group can dress up in their respective house colours, with the best dressed winning a special prize at the end of the night.
