Tips on the right kind of corporate event venue
There are many factors that contribute towards making a corporate event a success but one of the most important decision you will make is the venue. The setting of your event is a crucial point and is more or less the make or break. Below are a few points to keep in mind for any potential event.
1. Who are the venue staff?
Are they experienced? Are they team workers and efficient? When booking your venue it’s absolutely essential that you ask and do your research regarding the staff that will be helping you on the day of your event. Getting this right alone will increase the possibility of success on the day and getting it wrong will increase your workload and ruin your event.
2. Know your expected number.
Once you know your expected turn up you can ensure that the rooms will not be too packed which will cause discomfort and in turn make everyone less focused. You also don’t want the room to be too large with only a few people looking just an unprofessional.
3. Where is your venue?
Is the venue easily accessible? How do you and others plan to get there? Will the team arrive together or will everyone make their own way?
4. Ensure there is internet connectionNot every venue has this service so be sure to do your research. Unless it’s a no work event then you may be needing Wi-Fi to present something or as most of those who turn up will be workers they may not be able to stay too long without internet connectivity to keep an eye on their own projects. This service just makes it easier for everyone to have a good time and relax.
5. Have a variety of food
Vegan and gluten free options should be available especially if the event is considerably large as you will have a variety of people arriving from many different companies and businesses. It is a good look and will leave a lasting impression when everyone’s needs are catered too and consideration has been shown.
6. Match your venue to your guests.
In order to make everyone feel comfortable and to make the event a success you need to make sure you take into consideration who is coming when booking the venue. If you have invited the managers and bosses then your venue should be as impressive as to what they are used to.
Inviting them to a venue which is really nothing more than a few small rooms in office style won’t work well for your image. You need to amaze them or at the very least ensure your event doesn’t slip from their memory as soon as they leave the door.
