Planning a year end function?

Are you planning a year end function? Well we have got you covered. We welcome all companies from all over South Africa to head to Franschhoek and end of your year in style. With various venues to choose from, we at Franschhoek Venues have got your back.

We’re well into the second half of the year and every month takes us a bit closer to December, which means planning your company party and booking the ideal year-end function venue while it’s still available! Here are some tips from the coordinators from Franschhoek for planning a year end function.

  • Start planning early: For many businesses, the end of the year is a very busy time – so trying to plan a year-end function and keep on top of work can be an impossible task. Start your planning process as early as possible in the spring so that it’s easy and stress-free.
  • Take a look at different options: Franschhoek Venues book up quickly for this time of year, but that doesn’t mean you should go with the first one you see. Get quotes from at least three different venues to make sure that you’re getting value for your money. Be sure to compare their services, location and ability to host your group.
  • Ask about food requirements: Is someone in your company a vegan or vegetarian? What about anyone with religious or allergy-based dietary requirements? Your venue needs to be able to cater to all members of your group with ease, making sure that there are tasty options for everyone!
  • Add an activity for extra fun: Add an additional activity to the day which will make your day more fun. Such as the Franschhoek Wine Tram? This is a fun and relaxing way for your group to blow off some steam, enjoy the summer sun and bond with one another.
  • Confirm your booking: There’s a lot happening at the end of the year in Franschhoek and various staff members may be booking early holidays or are being invited to year-end functions held by clients and partners, so it’s important to make sure you send out invites as soon as you’ve booked your venue. This will also help you make final decisions on catering, decor, gifts and activities early.
