If you have been placed In charge of arranging an important event then we understand the stresses involved, having been in the hire market for many years. Finding strategic planning to be the key to all successful events we thought we would share our tip 5 venue hire tips with you, we hope they help!
Decide on a budget
Where the saying states ‘money isn’t everything’ it really is when it comes to venue hire as you get what you pay for. This is why we at Anything For Hire always recommend putting a budget in place as early as possible. Benefits of this include:
- Ensuring you do not fall in love with a venue that is unobtainable
- Avoiding time wasting
- Allowing you to locate venues that reflect the standard of event you are planning
- Making sure the stresses of finances do not overshadow the event
For many event planners they will have that one venue in mind, one that they a confident will support their event wholeheartedly. What we always suggest is viewing three venues before parting with a deposit, two that you know quite well and one ‘wildcard’. In doing so you either validate your initial idea or open up your mind to consider other options.
With the open nature of the internet we can now access reviews and testimonials on pretty much anything, with the world being slightly obsessed with celebrating great customer service and warning others of bad experiences. This rings particularly true when it comes to venue hire opportunities with brides, party planners and other individuals eager to share their thoughts and opinions.
If you are planning to hire a venue get online and see what other customers are saying.
Attend an event
With venue hire you have the luxury of experiencing an event before parting with your money with many locations, especially for weddings, inviting guests to see the place in action during the pitching stage. This can be a really useful way of deciding whether or not that particular venue will suit your upcoming event.
Go with your heart
With the stresses probably taking their toll the one thing to remember when planning an important event is to go with your heart, selecting a venue that will impress, serve and support your guests throughout the duration of their time there.
