When getting started on your conference organising, it is best to decide on one key issue before you start sending out the invites, namely, the conference venue. Whether you will be inviting 500, 1,000 or even 3,000 delegates, there are several common decisions that you should be prepared to make early on in your venue hunt. Let’s take a look:
When hunting for big event spaces consider the following types of venues:
The final price will mainly depend on the size of the conference, the venue’s location and its status. In London, you should expect to pay from £350 to £800+ per hour. The prices for full buyouts range between £1500 to £5000+, depending on the time of your event. Conference venues may also offer per person packages and the prices for such packages start from £90 per person. (All data from Tagvenue.com.)
Because large conferences require plenty of planning and preparation, you should book your first-choice option at least one year in advance. With all of this time to spare, you’ll be able to take care of every little detail of the event. Also, booking this early guarantees a much lower price in comparison to booking closer to the date. You will have a long list of offers, too, and this will help you choose the best one that matches your requirements.
Usually, the conference package includes the hire fee, catering and basic equipment, such as AV equipment, chairs, tables, WiFi, etc. But it’s best to thoroughly check the offer or discuss it with the venue manager before signing the contract. Then you’ll know exactly whether you need to pay any extra for the equipment that you need. This will give you a chance to compare the offer with the other ones and pick one that gives you more in the given price range.
We suggest starting your search in Covent Garden, Soho, Mayfair, Marylebone and Clerkenwell. These areas offer top-rated options and are easily accessible via underground and trains. Apart from that, they are filled with entertainment such as theatres, cinemas, bars, live music venues, museums etc. which make them exciting locations that can give your guests a chance to do something fun after your conference is over.
Found an amazing venue within 10 minutes of looking! Really happy :)
I came across Tag Venue completely by accident and Sarah was unbelievably helpful in saving me valuable time and conducting the search on my behalf. I would not hesitate to use Tag Venue again.
It was really easy to find a wide range of potential locations, and I could contact many different venues with ease. Tagvenue allowed me to be very dynamic when organising my event. Would definitely use again!
