Finding the perfect venue for corporate events can be tricky. You want the location to be trendy and relevant, but also professional and classic. Though the search can seem never-ending, here are a few criteria to follow to make finding the perfect location a little easier.
Though simple, this is truly one of the most important items on the list. Do you have a set date to work with, or are you more flexible? Keep that in mind as you shop event venues. There is no sense in getting more information or investing more time in researching a location if they are not even available on the day you are planning the event. With that in mind, always make sure that you check availability first when coordinating with event center staff.
2. Look at Venue Services and Policies
Does your venue have preferred vendors? Can any vendor be accepted into the venue? Is there parking or should you have valet or shuttles to ensure that your guests can get to your event without a hitch? Questions like these should be asked to your potential venue management so that you know what to expect and who else you can hire. Having all the information from potential venues from the get-go will make it easier to select a venue in the long run.
3. Keep the Theme in Mind
Corporate retreat or company casino party? Knowing what your event is and how you plan to decorate and carry out the event is integral to selecting a place to throw it. When you tour a venue, keep your theme in mind and try to envision what types of adjustments you will need to make it perfect for your specific party. No matter what your vision is, most venue managers can help you to understand the capabilities of their space and help you to make the most of their venue.
