Event Planning and Venue Selection; How to Find the Perfect Venue?

Finding the best venue for your next corporate event or conference is going to be critical to the event’s success. Assuming you already have the type of event in mind, there are other factors to consider when it comes to choosing a venue.

Consider Your Audience

The whole point of putting so much thought into selecting the perfect venue is to impress the attendees, so it pays to identify the audience who will be attending the event. Even if it’s a corporate event or conference, it’s best to know your audience: as in, are they straitlaced or are they more laid back? Also, the venue will have to offer some perks such as free Wi-Fi, clean restrooms, etc. Once you know exactly who you are planning the event for, finding the right venue should be a piece of cake.

Accessibility

This is a big one that is often surprisingly overlooked by many event planners. There is nothing than having to pull up to a venue and find that there’s no parking space, or worse, there’s no parking space close by. The last thing attendees of an event want is to walk half a mile to the actual venue from their car. This doesn’t only put a damper on mood for the rest of the evening, but will leave your audience with nothing good to say about the event except, “that event that made us park a mile away!”

We’re guessing you do not want your event to be associated with that quote. Efficient event planners are quick to judge a venue based on the parking space and how far it is from the actual venue. Anything farther than a block should be avoided like the plague.

Set a Budget (and Keep it)

Chances are, you will select the venue based on its cost. But, before you do, it is easy to get carried away once you’ve done a walk through and seen the facilities. This is why it’s best to make a list of the absolute must-haves at your event, so some other area of your event does not suffer because you went over budget while booking the venue space.

The good news is, there are plenty of online platforms where you can find the best event space vendors for your next corporate event. These online resources allow you to compare different venue spaces, contact the vendors and get quotes, ensuring that you are able to get the most bang for your buck.
