Big Event Fail: The Holiday Edition


Event professionals are tasked with the challenging job of handling every last detail that goes into a private event at their venue. The holiday season is an especially busy time for groups dressed in red and green celebrating with corporate parties, social gatherings, large dinners, and so on. While in an ideal world, all events would go on perfectly, that is not the reality of a private event or a holiday rush.

Today, we are sharing some of the holiday big event fails that our Tripleseat customers have experienced, learned from, and can look back on and laugh. Props to all of you — no matter what errors have been made in the past, the holiday event season at your venue could not go on without you!
