You won’t be able to get everyone in the office to agree on what they want out of an office party — so why offer a variety of different options for every taste and interest? Book a space that has a mix of meeting, conference and reception rooms, like this central London historic event space. In each room, plan for different activities. For example, standing tables with canapés and drinks can be served in the large reception area.
