When choosing a venue for your conference, consider its location. Select a venue that is easily accessible to your attendees, whether it's close to public transportation and has ample parking. Make sure the venue can accommodate the number of attendees you expect to have. Also check the available seating arrangements, so they can best adhere to your event’s needs. Look for a venue that offers the amenities you need, such as audio-visual equipment, Wi-Fi, and catering. And lastly, make sure the venue is within your budget, taking into account the cost of the venue hire, catering, and other expenses. If you have any special requirements for your venue hire, make sure to reach out to the venue manager before finalising your booking.

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!
