Sometimes you need to go all-out for a large-scale event that will leave an impression on your guests. Large events need a lot of planning, but they also need a venue that will help you turn your plans into reality. But what kind of venue are you going to need? You need to figure this out. Here’s some elements you should think of before choosing a venue:
If you have any problems determining what you’re looking for, you can take a couple of approaches. For example, you can try to check out several venues before choosing your hire. That way you’ll have an easier time to compare all the details and have a better idea of the true size of the space. You can also use that opportunity to ask additional questions about the venue and its terms and conditions. Also, try to use the search tools on Tagvenue to your advantage. If you already have some requirements when it comes to space, budget or facilities, you can use filters to see only the venues that are fit for your needs.
Do you have a huge idea or passion and you want to bring people together to make something happen? Organising an open conference is no small feat, but if you keep your expectations in check and follow our advice, you should be able to make your next event a success! Here's some tips on how to start out with conference planning:
If you want to schedule a conference, you should start planning at least 6-8 months in advance. This will mostly depend on the scope of your event, as catering services and venue managers will need to start preparing months in advance. And since you’re most likely to schedule your hire for a weekend (as this option would be most convenient for the guests), they may have their services scheduled for months on end. Even those attending will need to book their hotels early.
As we already mentioned, if you’re looking for the most amount of traffic, you should plan your conference for the weekend instead of the weekdays. Unless your conference is specifically business related, then you could get away with doing it in the middle of the week. That way you can have a higher chance to get the venue you want for a lower fee.
What is your conference about? You should find a way to reach your target audience and convince them to attend. One of the best ways to do that is to take advantage of Internet communities for your niche. People who are active in such forums or platforms are the most likely to be passionate enough to sign up for your conference. This applies both for business or marketing professionals and hobby enthusiasts. Depending on who you’re looking for, you should focus your efforts on LinkedIn (for business people and professionals), Reddit (smaller “hobby” communities) or Facebook (a mix of both).
Yes! It’s quite normal to hire large venues for 2 or more days, especially for weddings and events. Remember to contact your venue way in advance so that the managers can fit your event into the venue’s schedule.
If you’re looking for a stunning venue to organise a large wedding or engagement party, you’re in luck! Venues suitable for 150 or more people can be found in all parts of Central London. Multiple wedding spaces can be found between Green Park and the Embankment. If you’re looking for luxury wedding venues with at least 500 seats, you can’t go wrong with the historic halls and ballrooms, such as the one in Holborn or Marylebone.

The price tag for large venues in London depends on how big you want to go, and how close to the city centre the venue is located. The target purpose of the venue will also play a big part. If all you want to do is a seminar or lecture, you can get a conference room for around 200 people for as little as £100 per hour, but venues for weddings, conferences and showcase events will start at around £500 per day. (All data from Tagvenue.) Make sure to research all your options before hiring your large venue.
Depending on the layout of the space, you can carry out all sorts of events in a large venue. Weddings, corporate events, conferences, concerts and showcase events would be the most common uses for large venues.
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!
