Selecting a Good Conference Venue

What’s the best venue for your conference or business meeting? You want your event not only to run smoothly, but also to deliver on your promises to delegates and business results upon returning to work. Choice of venue is central to these needs. Planning a conference is a big job and there are many factors to consider, such as timing, location, style, and on-site facilities.

Budget & Cost

Always start with a budget and try to stick to it. Your budget will help you in not only choice of venue, but also how many delegates you can invite, conference length, interior decorating, what meals and accommodation you can provide. Get a fixed quote from the venue ensuring that there are no hidden extra costs. Costing varies from venue to venue. Some charge by room hire, some by the number of delegates. Ask if the price can be negotiated or if there are any discounts available, especially if you’ve narrowed your choice down to two or three venues. Finally, ask when a deposit and full payment is required, and payment method.

Location

The location of your event is probably the most important decision of the planning stage. There are two general options: an urban or rural location. The perfect venue for your conference should reflect the theme as well as how you want your staff to feel before, during and after the event. A town or city centre location will have a busier, focused atmosphere while a rural setting will be more relaxed and is ideal for team-building, reflection and inspiration. Obviously urban locations have better transport links, making travelling for delegates easier, but don’t rule out a rural venue just because there isn’t a nearby airport or train station. If you’ve found the ideal venue but it is off the beaten track, look into bus hire so your delegates can arrive together. Some smaller venues have the advantage of being able to hire out the entire facility for your event. This will ensure that there are no interruptions and focus kept high.

Fixing the Date

Decide whether your conference must be held on a particular date or have a choice of dates, as this will determine what venues you can add to your short list. How flexible are venues if you need to change the date?

Accommodation

Will you need accommodation for delegates? Not all conference venues have onsite accommodation so consider the convenience of staying in one location or moving to a separate venue for meals and overnight stays. Determine the number of delegates and check with your choice of venue if there are enough rooms available. Ask the venue if they have rooms available before and after the conference. Your dates may be available, but some delegates may want to arrive a day early or leave a day or two after.

Onsite Facilities

There is a long list of facilities that a successful conference needs. Can your choice of venue supply equipment or will you need to hire it or bring your own? What type of rooms are available? Is there a variety of rooms – not just for meetings, but break out areas? Are they well lit and laid out with adequate table and floor space and seating? Is the venue accessible with good access for the disabled? Good venues should provide items such as flipcharts, audio-visual equipment, a projector, lectern, stationery, a photocopier, refreshments and meals (including providing for special diets). Also, consider the experience and skills of the venue’s staff. Good staff should be courteous and knowledgeable during the first contact, and demonstrate a professional and helpful attitude.

You want to get the most out of your conference, seminar or business meeting and your choice of venue must be able to add significantly to its success and enhance the experience for organisers and delegates alike.

Tips In Selecting Ideal Conference Venues

Conferences can be large or small. Large scale conferences are usually held at convention centres that can accommodate thousand of attendees, medium scaled ones usually happen in a lecture theatre while small conferences can be held at conference venues that have meeting room facilities.

The first thing on your checklist should be establishing the purpose of the conference by answering the three defining questions which are whom you are trying to reach or the target audience you would like to attend the conference, what is it you want to get across or the main purpose of what you are trying to achieve and lastly where the conference should happen.

Another important thing that should come first is the budget unless you are appointed to estimate the budget yourself. If you are, set a budget at this early stage so you can work within that budget eliminating the risk of bills piling up one after another. Itemise your budget list so you know exactly how much goes into particulars.

Next is identifying the number of people attending the conference or a forecast on the maximum number of people you would like to attend the conference. You simply cannot go on without having this number clearly decided on as it defines so much in the planning process.

Now, choose your conference committee to help you out. This simply cannot be done alone as there are too many things that need to be done as well as keep an eye on. Create your planning calendar so you can keep track of how you are progressing so far and ask everyone to update the calendar every day.

Sit down with your committee and list down the keynote speakers you would like to invite. List a lot of speakers from the start and make your calls so that you know exactly who is available on the dates of your conference. Narrowing the list down to three just to find out that all of them are not freely available on the particular dates is pointless. Now from the list of speakers available, narrow it down to the ones you really want. Send your formal invitation, confirm their attendance and ask for a brief description of what they will be talking about as well as the speakers biography, notable or relevant achievements and a picture that the speaker would like to use so you can include this when you market your conference as well as include it in the conference programme.

Now it is time to seek for the right venue where you will be holding the conference. Do your searches online because the great thing about today is most establishments have websites that allow you to see when venues are available. When choosing your venues, consider parking space, accommodations and amenities, audio visual equipment readily available and banqueting packages. Sit down with your team, discuss the prospective venues and finalise which venues you should visit on foot. When visiting the venue itself, observe all the places you will be utilising if this suits your preference. Ask for sample contracts of previous conferences, brochures and pricelists so you can compare when you sit down with the committee later on. When you get back, finalise the venue.

The last frontier is deciding on the giveaways or tokens of appreciation. Be on the practical side and choose something memorable and actually useful unless you want to spend on a give away that is also given away to a random man on the street as soon as the conference is over.

All in all, planning conference events are hard work whether it is held at a big convention centre, a lecture theatre or conference venues with small meeting room facilities. But the key to planning a conference is having lots of time to plan it. Big conferences are even planned a year ahead. In this way you can book the venue you want and the keynote speaker you prefer without being set back because they are not readily available due to an earlier booking. Also, following trends on big international conferences might help in the creativity area. Conferences like these are always the talk of the town. Surely you would want yours to be regarded in the same manner.
