Tripleseat Releases Data Around Company Holiday Party Planning and Employee Feedback


To kick off the holiday season, Tripleseat conducted a survey in an effort to learn more about company holiday parties from employees and event planners, collecting over 1,100 responses. Here’s a look at the results of our 2018 Holiday Party Feedback Survey.

Some of the key findings within the survey included:

  • 9/10 of employees attend their company holiday party, if offered
  • 30% are held at restaurants, with the office being a close second
  • 36% of parties consist of snacks and beverages, while 3.5% of companies just drink
  • Less than 10% of all holiday parties are hosted at a bar, while 13% are held at unique venues
  • Nearly 30% of company parties do not occur in December
  • Ugly Sweater is still a common theme among companies, nearly 20%
  • 57% of employees have seen their colleagues intoxicated
