How to pick the perfect meeting venue
Whether you’re an entrepreneur or a small business, the New Year promises a flurry of networking and business opportunities and what better than a meeting or any other form of corporate event to accelerate your changes of closing that deal? Get a step closer to achieving your professional goals in 2017 and it all starts with finding the perfect meeting venue.
A one stop shop. Have you been to a conference or seminar in the past and struggled to find a good restaurant or bar to catch up with colleagues post-event? Ensuring the venue you decide on has a good place to eat and drink will help extend networking opportunities, besides being extremely convenient for the attendees. If your event is more than a day long and consists of delegates travelling far, there’s an extra task added to your list to find a good base to stay at around the venue. Keep this in mind whilst choosing an event space as most hotels also provide meeting suites and may be your answer to having everything in one place.
Accessibility and location. Whether your corporate event guests are local, traveling nationally or flying in, venue accessibility should play a vital role in your decision making process. Preferably, if the event space is situated in close proximity to an airport or a train station, it will help save time and costs associated with the added journey. A venue with a free car park should definitely be an area to consider when sifting through your top venue choices. Having an outdoor space like a large garden for instance, can add value to your event and allow delegates to catch a breath of fresh air and get those creative juices flowing.
Services and site visit. Depending on the nature of your meeting, you may require high-tech facilities, good WiFi, AV capabilities or catering. Some venues may have an on-site kitchen or food suppliers they may recommend. Whatever you choose, make sure to visit the site and inspect it for yourself. This will instantly give you an idea to how your guests will be treated and if the overall ambience is warm and welcoming.
