How to Throw a Business Party in London

London has a large amount of companies residing in its parameters and there is so much competition it can be hard to know where to start with your business. Throwing a successful business party in this corporate capital will ensure you wow your employees, customers and potential buyers. Human interaction is a powerful tool in business and word of mouth is sometimes the best way to get new customers and get people talking about you. Here are a few ways in which you can throw a successful business party in England’s capital. 


London is home to some of the most spectacular and beautiful buildings perfect for everything from conferences to business parties. Whether you wish to throw a party in one of the conference venues, or you wish to hire a room at one of its many upscale restaurants, you will be spoiled for choice in London. When thinking about a venue, the first thing to think about is your budget. Would you rather have an amazing venue and cut back on other amenities such as food and drink, or would you rather choose a smaller venue to ensure you can give your guests and employees everything they deserve. 

If you are planning to give a talk then a venue with a stage would be ideal. Think about travel for your employees, somewhere close to work may be best or you may want to hire a minibus. If your employees live far and wide, it is impossible to please everyone. Don’t forget to add some decoration relating to your business, perhaps pictures could be playing on a slideshow in the background as people enjoy their night. It is a great yet subtle reminder of why they are there in the first place. 

Food & Drink 

Whether they admit it or not, most people come to a party with one thing on their mind: the food and drink being offered. You may want to hire somewhere which has a bar or hire a company to wait on and cook for you. If you are having a smaller business party it could be more beneficial to have waiter service rather than a buffet, as food may go to waste. Perhaps put a bottle of wine on each table and then guests must purchase drinks after this. 

If you are throwing a Christmas business party, you may want to save up tips and use these on a drinks tab at the bar. When thinking of food and drink for a business party, you should consider quality over quantity. Good food and drink will be appreciated more than a large buffet that hasn’t been given much thought. You may even want to make your food and drink themed to your business or the party. There are thousands of catering companies in London, you are spoiled for choice.  


This is a huge part of any business party or event. The best way for your event to be successful is for people to talk about it. With many social media platforms now so popular, the better the entertainment, the more likely you will have people posting about your event. Have something related to your business if possible or think outside of the box. Music is a must between entertainment, as the last thing you want is a silent room! You may want to allow your employees to bring family, so have a separate counterpart to the room where the children can be entertained. Hiring a live band is a great option if you want to create a personal element to your business party. 

Party Time

If your company needs to be run 24 hours a day and a business party is going to mean some staff may be left out, perhaps you should think about hiring temporary staff rather than losing profit. You can find temporary staff in London at if you’re in search of a team to help you out. 

Don’t forget to let people know about the business party well in advance and network this party to potential buyers. Social media is a great tool in which to do so, as anyone who has liked your page can see the business party event.
