Picking the right venue for a corporate event is a step in the planning process that can be easily overlooked. It takes a lot of time to thoughtfully pick the right location for your event.
Here are some important tips to help you pick out the perfect location for your upcoming corporate event.
#1 – How many people are going to attend your event?
Figuring out how many people are going to show up is the number one thing you need to establish before picking your venue. This will determine your spacing, food, and overnight accommodations.
#2 – Size
Make sure your venue is the appropriate size for your event. You don’t want it to be overwhelmingly big or small for your audience. Be sure to check that it has enough rooms available for meetings and any other features that you’re looking for.
#3 – Location
If you’re choosing to have a local event, choose a central location that’s easy to get to and will better ensure attendance. If you decide to throw your event out of town or state, choose a location that is close to an airport. No matter where your event is held, be sure that it’s easily accessible and safe.
#4 – Transportation
Always consider how people will be getting to the event. Consider whether people will be taking cabs, renting cars or if you should be responsible for providing a shuttle to and from an airport.
#5 – Accommodations
It’s a great idea to choose a venue that also has hotel accommodations- this will make things easier for you and your attendees.
#6 – Services
Make sure you know what services are included in your venue rental. For most events it’s important that the venue includes wifi, tables, chairs, etc. Make sure you create a checklist and find a venue that matches up with what you need.
