Oct. 28, 2010 - PRLog -- (Sioux Falls, SD) – With Thanksgiving still weeks away, it may seem a little early to plan a company holiday party. But as department stores across the country pull out their Christmas decorations, one local expert encourages party planning committees to do the same.

“The holiday season is relatively short, and with so many events to attend, social calendars can fill up quickly,” said Jean Hoesing, general manager of the Ramada Hotel & Suites in Sioux Falls. “If you’re going to throw a party for your employees, choose the event date early and be sure to let your staff know right away.”

Once the date is set, Hoesing recommends focusing on a party location. Consider the number of guests and the overall theme of the party before settling on a venue.

“If you have a small staff, or you’re planning a relaxed party for employees and their families, it might be fun to invite everyone to a restaurant or local sports event,” Hoesing said. “But if it’s a large company or you’re envisioning a formal cocktail party, a conference or event center might be a more appropriate venue.”

Hoesing’s staff has plenty of experience throwing big bashes, and the Ramada Hotel plays host to several company Christmas parties each year. According to Hoesing, the details can make all the difference between a successful party and a ho-hum get-together.

“Keep guests happy with plenty of food and beverages, whether it’s mouth-watering appetizers or a full meal,” Hoesing said. “Entertainment is also key; some companies bring in live music, others arrange for interactive games to keep the mood festive. A great MC can also keep guests laughing and enjoying the evening.”

With more than 3,500 square of conference space, the Ramada Hotel often plays host to both large company parties and small family holiday events.  The ballroom can accommodate up to 250 guests, while the poolside tiki bar is a popular place for small office parties.

The Sioux Falls hotel also offers catering, business, and audio-visual services, in addition to affordable accommodations and extensive hotel amenities. For more information or to book an event, visit http://www.siouxfallsramada.com or call 605.336.1020.
