Christmas parties are being organised virtually by businesses whose offices are closed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
A vaccine will arrive too late for office parties, so companies have invested in digital events and activities.
Food deliveries, workshops and live entertainment have been planned virtually for staff.
The aim is to boost morale, when some home-workers are feeling isolated.
Hire Space has pivoted from organising events at large venues, to hosting virtual parties with a difference.
Clients begin by selecting an entrance experience – for example a comedy bouncer who checks dress code on the way in – and then choose from more than thirty immersive rooms, from burlesque to dance floors.
Guests can move between rooms using a clickable party map, showing the different performances and where the guests are.
