How to choose a great business event venue
You have a fantastic idea for a business conference or event. You’ve spent weeks, perhaps months, agonising over whether you should do it and the brilliant content you will present. Now, it’s time to find the perfect venue! We’ve rounded up some of the best tips to help you choose the perfect business event venue:
- Is it accessible? You want as many people as possible to come to your event, therefore, accessibility and a convenient location is so important when organising your business event. Choose a venue that is easily accessible for attendees using public or private transport. Also make sure there is enough, safe parking for everyone.
- Money makes the world go around. You will be able to get so much more out of your venue and your event if you budget properly. When you shop around for venues, there will be more left over for food, beverages, and entertainment. There will be a great special somewhere, you just have to find it.
- Be true to your business’ personality. If your business has a quirky and fun personality, don’t host your event at a boring venue! Find a venue that reflects your business’ personality and values. You are also more likely to get your target audience to attend your business event if you stick to an authentic venue that meets your criteria.
- All the trimmings. You’d be surprised how many times venues do not have all the trimmings you would need to run a successful business event. Your answer is scouting. If you need a projector, sound, Wi-Fi or catering, do some spying before committing to a venue and ensure they offer everything you need. There is nothing as frustrating than arriving on the day and realising there is no sound cable!
- Reputation is everything. The venue you have in mind might have an amazing website, a beautiful set-up, and everything might seem dandy… But we think it’s wise to always ask around and listen to people who have used the venue before. And don’t just go on client testimonials but dig a little deeper to make sure it’s the perfect business event venue for you.
