Options for Corporate Event VenuesFinding the perfect venue to host your corporate event is essential for the success of the event. Whether it is a conference with executives flying in from all subsidiaries of the company or an end of the year party with teams from all the departments participating, the venue will set the atmosphere for the entire event. If you are currently wresting the exciting, but extremely difficult task of venue selection, here are a few tips to make it a bit easier:
- Determine evaluation criteria – the number of the guests, the type of the event, catering-related expectations, access to the venue should all be on your list and make sure you include the services that you need, too.
- Create a list with the venues that are available and seem to fit your requirements as well. One event venue that leads to participant's creativity, memorable shared experience, and a renewed sense of team spirit, is the painting and sipping opportunity at Pinot's Palette.
- Create an evaluation checklist and use it to record what you experience during your visits to the potential venues – yes, you will need to test them one by one.
- Get everything in writing – a venue might look perfect when you visit it, but you need written records of the entire negotiation process. Make sure you send email minutes about every conversation you have with venue managers, it is the best way to avoid confusion and misunderstanding.
