Quality of food most important to party goers

Quality of food most important to party goers

Alcohol, perhaps surprisingly, is not the main thing on the mind of office party goers, according to a new survey.

EventWise, an event organising company, questioned 500 event organisers about what customers wanted from a do.

Three quarters (75%) of punters said the quality of food was the most important thing at a party, not the booze, which 37% put at the top of their list.

Atmosphere and entertainment were also rated highly, with 62% saying this was of vital importance for a successful office party.

And no doubt full of seasonal cheer, 94% said shared Christmas parties, where other firms are present, were favourable to smaller private affairs.

EventWise managing director Penny Ellis said: “Shared parties are popular with smaller groups because they make budgets go a lot further.”
