5 Steps to finding the perfect venue for your event

Finding the perfect venue can be stressful. You need to consider different factors before picking a venue. A good venue can make planning your event much easier and less stressful altogether. Here are 5 important steps to take when finding the perfect venue for your event.

Appropriate venue

It’s important to know what kind of event you are catering for. This means you need to find a venue which is suitable for the event that you will be holding. This is important because you need to take into consideration all that needs to happen during the event and if the venue accommodates all these needs. This can be the need for a conference room or ample outdoor space for team activities.

Location

The venue location is one of the most important things you need to consider. Ask yourself where the majority of your guests will be travelling from, will they need accommodation and if guests will want to be near a city to fill their time with different in-city and tourist activities.

Venue availability and accessibility

When looking at venue availability you need to look beyond the day or days of your event. Consider all the events that may be happening around your venues and how these events might affect your event. You also need to consider the accessibility of the venue. How easy is it to get to and to leave the venue? You want every experience that people have at your event to be a good one. That means considering the traffic flow around the venue and how far the travel is.

Price vs. value

Price is highly important. You should have a firm budget however you shouldn’t compromise the quality of the venue because of its price factor . Work on a price vs. value basis by evaluating if the venue is worth the money that it requires and if that is still in the budgeted range.

Discover all the options

Take care when looking for your venue, don’t just go for the first venue you find. Carefully assess every venue you find and weigh out the advantages and disadvantages. Visit, at a minimum, your top 3 choices and see how you feel about each venue. Write down what you liked and disliked most about each venue. Using this you can make a clear decision.
