We strongly advise booking your top-choice venue at least one year in advance to ensure you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. However, if you're planning a smaller event up to 100 guests, you can wait until six months prior to the event to start browsing for venues. By securing your venue early, you'll have ample time to focus on other crucial aspects of your conference planning. Just keep in mind that waiting until the last minute may limit your options, as the best venues are often fully booked well in advance.
