As consumers, we never really start thinking about Christmas until the end of October or beginning of November. And often we feel slightly outraged at how early Christmas decorations and advertising come out. But when it comes to planning a commercial Christmas project, you actually need to start thinking about Christmas much earlier in the year. This will help you secure the products you want for your project as orders from international suppliers require a 6 month lead time to manufacture and ship to Australia. It also factors in site visits, design time and the sometimes lengthy decision process some complex organisational structures present.
Whether you’re a marketing manager tasked with sourcing Christmas decorations for shopping centres or an event manager at a council looking for commercial Christmas decor, we have created this ‘calendar’ to show how the commercial Christmas industry is an all year round business.
