Choosing a venue is the one decision that will have the largest impact on your event. Your venue is the foundation upon which everything else is built and as such requires extra special attention during the decision-making phase.
There are multiple factors to consider when selecting a venue for an event and once you have an understating of your budget, number of attendees and type of event you should consider the six factors in this two-part post.
Are you planning to have activities at your event? What types of activities will you have? What kind of amenities will you require and what are the needs of your team and guests? The answers to these questions are important for determining the kind of layout that will be suitable for your event. When selecting, a venue remember that the layout and floor plan will affect numerous factors of your event so don’t overlook it.
Capacity and accessibility
You want to be able to fit all your guest into your venue quite comfortably with enough room to move around and complete activities as required making capacity your top concern. Similarly, you want to know that all your guests and crew, particularly those with special needs, can access your venue and its amenities without a hassle.
The ambience of a venue without the décor is important. Think about your event and the style of the venue. Do the two go together? What style is the architecture and what does the building’s interior convey? If you are hosting a gala you would need different venue accommodations than you would for an expo, so pay attention to the atmosphere of a venue in its original state.
