Well, that’s about it, hope your event venue turns out to look amazing. Good luck!
No matter what the event maybe, the one that you are responsible for is very important. With all the preparations, you could feel crazy and hectic with finding a great place for your function. Well, fear not! We are here to help. The following tips are things you should look out for, when hiring a place for an event.
You may want to get started in venue hunting at least 4 months advance to your event so that you have time to work through the rest of the things. But of course, for that you first need to have these things: budget, event size (an estimate of course) and requirements. Another reason, you may want to hunt your place in advance is that, say you planned on hiring function rooms, these places sometimes get booked out fast, and so to avoid disappointments, start early,
- Then consider the location, you may have wanted to consider something like unique conference venues in Melbourne, but do note that it is important that all your guests can arrive to that event on time, and having this event somewhere far away could get your guests a bit disappointing. If your event is at a school or a campus, then I suggest you use boards with directions from the entrance to the hall or the place.
- You need to remember that parking is a pretty important thing as well. if the venue you chose did not have its own parking lot or a parking lot nearby reserved for your event, things may turn a bit crazy. You could event try getting discounts and offers from a cab service, if you get them to work with you in the event, so your attendees can ride to your event in a low price.
- Make sure that the venue has enough space to have your guests feel comfortable. For example, you can’t have 500 people at the venue where only 300 or so can fit. So make sure you know the count of your attendees and hire a place with enough space. Also keep in mind to check whether there is an emergency exit as well as safety codes in the venue.
- Some venues have a kitchen and they charge for the food as well, but those that do not have a kitchen mostly have a partnership with an outside restaurant that will supply food if you are in need. So make sure to ask about it. Else, see if you are allowed to bring food from an outside vendor.
Well, that’s about the main things you may want to consider before you hire a venue. All the best!
