Hosting a corporate event that is effective and looks good will go a long way in making your company look professional. Choosing the right venue with the right accommodations and set up for your needs will go a long way in helping make your event a success.
Here is what you should look for in a venue when hosting your next corporate event in St. Louis:
The Venue Meets Your Budget
One of the first things you should consider is your budget. How much can you afford? Set a budget for not only the venue but also:
- AV equipment
- Guest speakers
- Extras, such as valet services and security
Does the venue meet your established budget? Before you choose your venue, be sure to establish a budget to understand what you can and cannot afford.
The Venue Has The Set Up You Need
Your venue should have the necessary mechanical and electrical systems and space so the professionals at Ironman Sound can set up the equipment and staging you want where you want it.
The Venue Has The Services & Facilities You Need
There’s no point in choosing an event venue if they do not have the services or facilities you need. For example, do they provide catering services or do you need to bring in another company? Do they have a conference room that will accommodate you, your equipment, and your guests?
Ask the venue these questions up front so you can compare venues with each other.
The Venue Has Appropriate Capacity For Guests
How many people will be attending your event? From 50 to 200, your venue should be able to accommodate your guest capacity. Ask the venue about their minimum and maximum capacities and if they have rooms to accommodate your guest count.
The Venue Has Polite, Knowledgeable Staff
Staff at your venue of choice should be friendly, polite, and guest-oriented. Read reviews and ask for recommendations to get an idea of how a certain venue operates.
Be sure to ask your venue of choice what their experience is in corporate event hosting and what events they have done. Also ask for pictures and references.
The Venue Is In A Convenient Location
When hosting a corporate event in St. Louis, choose a venue that is in a convenient location. It should be a reasonable distance from the invitees’ homes or place of business. In addition, there should be convenient parking; guests should not have to walk far or unexpectedly pay for parking
It is good manners to include parking and location instructions for your guests. Some guests may have never been to the location before and they will appreciate specific directions.
