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.
It goes without saying that one of the most important factors in selecting a venue is whether it fits into your budget. Work with your event planner to establish a suitable ratio regarding the costs of your event so that you have enough money to select a venue that will give you the greatest benefit while leaving enough money to cover other costs.
Convenience is key when selecting a venue and this could not be more true for the location. You want a venue that within reasonable distance to your guest’s home or office. If you’re hosting guests from out of town then focus on a venue near airports, hotels and reliable public transport nodes. You want to make attending your event as easy as possible for your guests.
Services and amenities
Aside from how your venue looks what other services and amenities do they offer? This is an important question to ask because anything that makes your life easier is a plus. Consider if the venue has catering staff, a set up and cleaning crew and audio visual capabilities.
