It’s difficult as it is to plan a meeting for your company, but one of the more critical factors which can greatly impact the success of your meeting is choosing the correct event venue.
There are many factors to consider when choosing a venue for a business meeting, but five stand out among the rest.
Here they are for your consideration the next time you need to plan a meeting. These considerations will help you choose the perfect space, for both events and business meetings.
The Size Of Your Event
One key concept to keep in mind is that you’ll want to balance the size of the venue you pick with the size of your audience.
Many event planners make the erroneous assumption that bigger is better, but they simply end up losing their crowd in the size of the place, throwing off the balance and comfort of the event or meeting.
If you’re holding an event or meeting with dozens or hundreds of attendees, you’ll want a venue that can hold them all comfortably, but if your gathering is only a dozen or two dozen people, don’t book a castle. Keep it small and simple.
Where and for How Much?
Deciding on where to hold your meeting can substantially impact the eventual turnout of the event.
Before confirming with your venue that you’ll be holding the event there, make sure the place is well connected to public transportation or can be easily accessed by private transport. The venue will need ample parking space and other accommodations depending on the nature of the event. For example, you may need food catered or recreational facilities, depending on how long your guests will be staying. Make sure all accommodations are met before booking the venue.
The Type of Event
There are dozens of different types of events you can plan for. All of these events will have different needs to be met, from ambience to mobility. There are many venues Singapore can provide, all with a variety of needs and a dynamic feel to them, but you’ll want to pick the venue which works best for the type of event or meeting you want to hold.
If you’re holding a formal conference you’ll want a finer and more formal feel, whereas board conferences and gala dinners will feel regal and more professional. There are undoubtedly venues for whatever you need, but you have to know what you need before you book. What type of event are you planning?
This may seem obvious, but the place you picked must be equipped to handle your audio and visual needs without incident. If you’re planning to present a detailed slideshow or presentation with video and audio accompaniments, you have to make sure the venue can provide for these needs. Many people plan complicated presentations well in advance and are promptly dumbfounded to learn the venue they’ve chosen cannot support their needs. Don’t let this happen to you.
Many places in Singapore can accommodate even the most advanced technological needs, but, like anything else, you’ll have to double-check and make sure your meeting will go smoothly with these needs in place.
Sustainable Venues Reduce Your Carbon Footprint
Large events and meetings contribute a great deal to the country’s carbon footprint, and many companies are starting to crack down on this problem. Some venues use “sustainable practices” such as using fuel-efficient buildings and other tools to eliminate net emissions. Singapore is doing everything in its power to become a zero-waste nation, and this effort is greatly aided by venues and other facilities which are transitioning into a green future.
