Planning a Group Event

What is hospitality? It's all about creating a safe and comfortable environment that brings people together to socialize with old friends and to make new ones. Responsible hospitality is what a party host can do to reduce risk and increase the enjoyment of the event. Nothing ruins a relationship faster than the inappropriate behavior of someone who drinks too much at a party. Keep your friends safe and healthy by being a responsible host.

    • Avoid making alcohol beverage consumption the focus of the party.
    • Be a good role model, and control those who are unable to model responsible behavior.
    • If alcohol is present, make sure it's one of many options, along with food and non-alcoholic drinks.
    • Involve underage people in planning the event so that they can help create alternatives to alcohol consumption.
    • Focus on activities that help guests break the ice, start conversation, and have fun without intoxication.
    • Set firm boundaries for inappropriate behavior, and be consistent in enforcing your boundaries.

Space Rental: It's just like they say in Real Estate: Location, location, location! Be creative - there are some great choices here in NZ. Sometimes, the location alone helps to set the theme and tone of the party. Here are some key questions: Does the space accommodate all your guests comfortably? Is it in a safe location? Is it close to public Transport. Are taxis available?

Remember - have lots of fun, and make sure you and your guests remember the night!!!
