Your venue and theme should match and be appropriate to the type of audience or guest that is on your list, are they all CEO’s?, perhaps parents and children?, or just colleagues and friends? You have to ensure that the location of the venue will be able to accommodate your guests, with ample extra room everyone to move about freely.
You have to consider ahead the accessibility of the guest towards the location, like from where they come from it should be easy to navigate and reach the area whether they drive their own cars or riding on taxis, and the availability of accommodation should some may consider staying for the night. Make arrangements that the parking area in the location is able to accommodate all of your guests with no problem.
You may need to consider as well the amenities, decor, and layout of the venue so you can confirm with the management as to what are the inclusions in their rental package. What are the event equipment and services are you able to use freely, and inform them of the kind of layout that you prefer in the area. For most, the place coordinator may offer particular layout and decor design of the venue and you can agree on a decision that will both good for you.
Then, another important thing is the menu, and still consider your guest and their possible preferences before choosing the menu. It is best to have a variety of menu that can cater to every type of diet including vegetarian and vegan, this will also include the drinks to be served.
Validate the cost of the venue, adding all the inclusions and validate if you will be charged appropriately according to what you are getting.
It will even be an added assessment for you if you get to visit the location of the venue personally to get actual evaluation of the area, parking, amenities, even with the staff and management.
Making the preparations all in place accordingly, from the venue down to parking area, will give you an assurance that your event will go smoothly and successfully and you will get satisfaction for yourself and from your invited guests as well.
