Planning a corporate event is not something you do overnight. There are many key factors to consider. One of them is choosing the right venue that can help you carry a successful event and give you the right accommodation and materials you need.
Here are the things you need to consider before booking the venue:
Hospitable and skilled staff.
The staff plays a big role in any event. They can help make the event successful or unsuccessful. The staff needs to be knowledgeable, energetic, easy to work with and organized. No matter how great the program is, if the staff are not friendly and helpful they can make anyone disappointed.
Space and sizes of rooms.
The size and space of rooms are very important to consider. You need to know how many people are actually coming to the event so you would know what type of room you need to book in order to ensure that your guests are not cramped up and become uncomfortable or spread out too much and becomes awkward. You need to have the right space to accommodate your needs.
Quality of food and drinks.
Food plays a crucial part in events. Good food can always make your event better and make the people happier since this is also their time to unwind. Take note, some people are vegetarian or on a special diet; the venue that you should look for should take these considerations so everyone could enjoy.
In choosing venues, it’s also important to pick the right location, not to near but not to far either as it can be exhausting. You should pick the location where there is a beautiful scenery and just a few driving hours away like in Tagaytay. Imagine getting those refreshing selfies and Instagram posts in a very beautiful team building venue in Tagaytay.
Whether it’s a slideshow or other kinds of presentation, always make sure that the venue can provide the equipment you need like Audio Visuals (AV) and lighting to avoid any inconvenience and delays.
One of the things that most companies or organizations forget to ask the venue is that if they offer WiFi or any sort of internet connectivity. Believe it or not, some venues don’t even have a stable cell service, unless if that’s what you’re aiming for, it’s better to check and be sure on their connectivity and signal.
Aura and theme
Probably the most important factor of all. It is necessary to take consideration of the theme of your event to match the venue. For example, if the event is very formal then the appropriate venue would be something filled with pure elegance, formal and high class.
Just remember, before you book the venue it’s better to visit them first and check if they have everything that you’re looking for. Make sure to also check their website and social media pages to see what they can offer and what people are saying. It’s better to read many reviews regarding the venue so you can make a wise booking decision.
