Luckily, you’ve got us! Below, we’ve shared all the key things you need to think about to make the whole process short and sweet. So start reading now, and thank us later!
Draw up your budget - Once you decide on how much you can pay for the venue hire, selecting spaces that fit your budget will be easier. . This will save you from overspending and ensure you get the most out of your money.
Make a guestlist - Will it be a huge event for over one hundred people, or something more intimate? Estimating the number of guests you want to invite will help you decide whether to choose a spacious venue or a more intimate setting. Again, you'll know what to look for, and you'll be able to set your eyes only on those venues that will fit your number of guests.
Choose an event style - Ask yourself what type of event you’d like to throw. Will it be a workshop, a corporate meeting or a birthday party? Are you planning to serve food? If so, would you rather have a sit-down dinner, or a buffet? Will your event have a theme? Once you have a clear vision on the overall setting, you’ll get a clear idea of what type of venues you should look for - restaurants, bars or conference centres. You’ll also be able to decide if the particular decor of your first-choice venue will match your expectations.
Pick a convenient location - When choosing a location, consider how accessible it is by public transport and car. Check for parking lots that are nearby in case you expect people to drive. It’s also a good idea to pick a venue based on what types of entertainment options are nearby. For example, if you're hosting a birthday, you can pick a space near clubs so that you can have an after-party option.
Try to be flexible with the event date - If it’s possible, pick your event date based on the best venue offer that you find. To do so, check the offers on different dates - it will give you an idea of what venues are available. You will be able to compare the offers that catch your eye and pick the one that matches all your needs at your price range. The point is that when you browse for a specific date, you won’t see venues that could be a better fit because they may be booked at that time. When browsing other dates, you’ll get more insight!
Birthdays - Hiring a function room to celebrate your birthday is a great way to have fun without having to worry about the set-up or aftermath. All you need to do is pick a venue that meets your price range and vision, and they will take care of everything else! You won’t need to worry about the cooking and the cleanup. You will be able to fully focus on spending quality time with your guests and enjoy the moment. To pick a great function room, check if it has a good menu, and a decor that you like - all elements which contribute to making the occasion even more memorable.
Meetings - All kinds of meetings can be held in function rooms. From board meetings and annual general meetings to team-building meetings and brainstorming sessions. A function room will give you plenty of space, and flexibility, and provide you with all the necessary facilities, such as high-speed internet, screens, and writing boards. However, ensure that your first-choice options offer everything you need to avoid any setbacks.
Holiday parties - During the Christmas season, function rooms are a popular choice for hosting any type of holiday parties -from corporate to private ones. You can easily book this type of space to spend some time with your family and friends or coworkers. To make the most of such an event, try searching for a space that either has a holiday atmosphere or can be transformed to fit your Christmas party theme.
Intimate wedding receptions - Function rooms are great alternatives for people who would like to have a fairytale wedding on a limited budget. They are usually cheaper than classic wedding venues and give you the freedom to build a dream reception setting from scratch. If you have specific requirements or would like to enjoy full privacy, you can easily do so by booking the function room during off-peak times. Some function rooms slash their rates if you book their services in advance or at off-peak times, so be sure to discuss that with the venue manager.
