If you’re in charge of the organisation of events for a business, you’ll be aware that are several things to consider. How accessible the venue is, how many people it can accommodate and what onsite facilities it has, are just a few. You’ve also got to think of how you can make the event interesting and fun. Choosing to host it in different types of venues can help achieve this.
Here are some ideas on where you can host your next big business event:
If you’re organising an event for a large or multinational organisation, an exhibition centre can be a perfect venue, as it has the capacity to comfortably accommodate large groups of people. Plus, they tend to be located near transportation hubs, like motorways or train stations which makes them easy for people to get to. Also, the venue will probably have facilities already in place on-site, so you don’t have to worry about organising this.
Temporary structures are a great option if you’ve got space to hold the event on the business’ premises or if you want to host it at a specific location. The huge advantage of temporary structures is that they come in a range of sizes (from the small up to the very large, like 6,240 square metres), shapes and materials, meaning you can find the perfect structure for your event. The structures can be erected and dismantled with ease and most importantly they offer protection from the unpredictable weather.
If you are looking for something sophisticated and elegant consider hosting your business event in a stately home or castle. Whilst these types of venues aren’t often located in city centres, you can organise transport to get your attendees to the venue. Some venues even include this service in their package. Another plus is that these venues often have accommodation on-site which is ideal if the event is taking place over several days.
Numerous museums hire out their facilities for private events and if you’re looking to hold your next business event in a truly unique space, a museum ticks all the boxes. Museums are often located in city centres, so they have good transport links and facilities close by, like hotels and restaurants, which is ideal if your attendees need to stay overnight or top up on refreshments. Plus, they usually have facilities like catering and cloakrooms already on-site, so you don’t have to organise for external suppliers to come in.
Sporting venues like football or cricket grounds are a perfect place to host a large business event, as they have the capacity to host a large of number of attendees. They also tend to have parking facilities onsite or nearby, so getting to the venue is easy. Plus, they have separate spaces that can be used for break-away meetings or seminars.
There is so much choice when it comes to finding a venue and hopefully, this list will give you some inspiration on where to host your next big business event.
