The Must-Haves for Your Venue June 10, 2019

Downtown Chattanooga, 4
The Must-Haves for Your Venue, 4, Tennessee

Of all the decisions you’re confronted with when organizing an event, the venue has the largest impact. The size of the event space, catering, and alcohol options are just the tip of the iceberg. Here are some of the most important aspects to consider for your upcoming event.

3 Venue Requirements for Your Event

1. Versatile Open Floor Plan

A closed venue dictates where and how your design is defined, while an open layout gives you the versatility to alter the space as needed. Determine if it can hold the number of people for your event, plus extra room for catering, a sound stage, or maybe video production. Explain everything you want, and make sure they can accommodate ahead of time. Have them walk you through the venue and point out where each vendor can set up, so you can get an overall feel for how it will take place.  

2. Professional Staff

VenueFind out what staffing services are available and specify your requirements for specialized requests; for example, ask if their bartenders are proficient at making specific beverages you want served at the event. Ask about servers, bartenders, cooks, and a cleanup crew. Find out if they have an onsite event planner or someone who’ll work with your planner.

3.  Amenities

Parking may be an issue depending on the location, so make sure the venue has a way to accommodate your event. Find out if they have chairs, tables, a podium, or any other types of furniture you may require. Every event requires a good sound system. Ask about stage lights, PA systems, and monitors, and if they have the staff – like audio and lighting technicians – to keep your event moving. Also, verify their Wi-Fi capabilities, so your participants can log in to social media sites and share your event.
