The Venue Finding Service Guide to Venue Size

Venue Finding Service

Growth is key for every business.

From a start-up with one employee to a global corporation – whatever the size of the business, they all have one thing in common, they want to grow bigger.

However, when business growth is achieved, it means that everything else has to grow as well – including business services and support to ensure the business is able to function at the next level.

As the leading venue finding service, we know that this also applies to conferences, events, and meeting venues as well.

When you are going through the process of scaling up your business, you may find that venues that you have used in the past, and which have suited your purpose, are no longer able to meet your event requirements – and so it becomes time to look elsewhere.

But, how do you know what venue size you should be looking at? Well, that is where the amazing team at Conferences Group venue finding agency comes in.

Small Venues

If you are a start-up, then you may be able to have your events and meetings in your local pub or even a private room at a good local restaurant. However, once your group size gets over 10 people, then this will no longer be an option as you will need the room for longer, and group catering can be more difficult for smaller venues like this to get right.

As businesses grow, their choice of venues needs to grow as management needs to be sure that the venue can support the goals they have for their event. It’s not just about the availability of a room, instead, it becomes more about location, exclusivity, security, catering, technical requirements and so on – all things we have covered in previous blog posts.

Hotels and Venues with Meeting Rooms

Once you have moved up to the next level of the venue, then you will be looking for somewhere that offers a ‘meeting and events package’ – which will usually be a hotel or conference venue. Yes, they will cost you more than a small venue, but you can sometimes negotiate a good deal – especially if you are very clear on what you want right from the start.

Venues in this sector can range from spaces suitable for six people to six hundred, and rooms will be versatile to cope with many different layouts. You may also find that you are able to take advantage of in-house facilities and you may even be able to bring in your own preferred external supplier.

Dedicated Conference and Exhibition Centres

If you are looking for space for several hundred people then you may want to consider a dedicated conference or exhibition centre. They probably won’t have the same character and cosiness as a hotel, but they will offer you a blank canvas that you can decorate to suit your particular event needs.

As you can see, there are a lot of different types of venues available for hire, so how do you know where to start? Using the services of a reputable event management service, such as Conferences Group, is a good place to start. We can search for a reputable venue that is suitable for your purpose and help you to obtain a good deal as well.
