Round-up: Corporate Christmas parties

We've already reported that London has been experiencing a 2013 Christmas party boom and that Christmas party lead times are getting longer, but what people really want to know is where companies are taking their staff for the annual festive celebrations. So we sent our man on the ground to find out...

Deloitte entertained 1,100 consultants at Old Billingsgate in London and property company Aspect went to London's most famous store, Harrods.

Also in the capital, luxury automotive brand Aston Martin used its Park Lane dealership for its own celebration, while Yahoo held a Christmas event at Vinopolis, as did US investment firm Pimco.

High-end interior design business Taylor Howes attended the Corinthian London hotel, Eland Cables went to The Dorchester, UKTV took staff to Kanaloa club in the East End and the one you all want to know about – the X Factor wrap party – took place at One Marylebone.

Supermarket giant Sainsbury's took employees to Cardiff Arms Park, while adventure, sports and social group Spice held its Christmas party at the Grosvenor Casino in the Welsh capital.

EBS (Educaton Business Solutions) went to the Radisson Blu Edwardian Manchester, Nokia South West held their party at Colston Hall, Bristol and finally, across the pond, Penguin Random House celebrated at the Grand Hyatt New York.
