Choosing a venue for your event may seem like an easy task.  However, there is a great deal of strategic planning and event creativity involved. Therefore, here are some tips to add to your venue search checklist.

Before searching for venues you want to have an outline of what you imagine the outcome of the event to be like. By having the outline before you start venue searching, it will allow you to gain an idea of the overall event design. In addition, it will allow you to imagine how the event will look in the different venues you search. Thus, you will be able to narrow location possibilities. 

When choosing the location for an event, you want to ensure it is convenient to your guests, easily accessible to major highways, public transportation, and parking options. Ensure the venue you choose is suitable for the guest expectancy.  It is better to overestimate number of occupants and have room to spare than underestimate and not have enough room. 

Considering the timing of the event is important.  If there is another business event or large event occurring around the same time, it may limit your access to resources.  Therefore, when choosing what to incorporate in your event, ensure to inquire in advance about your audio/visuals and other equipment needs. Furthermore, working with Audio Visual companies can help you produce an effective and quality event video to incorporate in your event.  AV companies can help with your event production to create an exquisite experience for your guests.  

In each step you take to plan your next event remember the goal of a corporate event production is to make the guests feel comfortable and focused on the agenda.
