Have you thought about the location you need for your conference? Are you looking for a centre in a major city or do you want something more rural? Think about where your delegates will be travelling from and what they will expect from the event.
If you have some set requirements to be able to deliver talks and presentations then you want to make sure your chosen conference centre can fulfill your needs. Make a list of must-haves to narrow your search.
Do you have other factors to consider? Do you need an on-site restaurant or accommodation nearby? Check out the facilities offered and make sure it is in-line with what you need.
You want to choose a conference venue that suits the style of your event. Are you looking for something impressive and full of grandeur? Or do you want something slick with all the latest technologies? Consider your brand, your event and the impression you want to make on your delegates.
It can be difficult to know your exact numbers when you book your conference space but you will have a rough idea. Make sure your chosen location is suitable for the number of delegates you are expecting.
Have you set a budget? It’s the quickest and easiest way to eliminate spaces from your shortlist and also means you are in no danger of falling in love with a conference space that is out of your price range.
