Business conferences and events are all about creating the right impression – whether it’s to your fellow colleagues and employees, or to outside investors and business partners. While presentations, speeches and events are all really important, if the wrong impression is created or the atmosphere is not quite right, then no-one will be engaged – and the conference won’t be much of a success.
People often overlook just how important a venue can be to creating the perfect business event, but careful consideration needs to be taken to ensure the venue you choose suits all of your needs perfectly. Here are some venue aspects to consider before booking:
1. Where Is The Venue Located?
Location is incredibly key to any successful business conference or event – if anyone has difficulty getting to the venue, has to travel too far a distance or would simply be unable to get there then you’re not off to a good start. It’s best to choose a venue which has strong links to main roads and motorways, as well as airports for anyone who might be coming in from overseas.
With great M6, A45, NEC, train station and Birmingham International Airport connections our conferencing facilities here at the Windmill Village Hotel are ideally situated so that no matter where people might be travelling from and how they’re getting there, they’ll find access to our site incredibly simple.
2. How Big Are The Rooms & Suites?
This is also really vital – some hotels and venues that offer conferencing facilities have a strictly limited selection of rooms and suites available, leaving you having to either make compromises on your event or cut back on who will be able to attend to fit into smaller rooms.
Similarly, there’s no point in having to make do with a suite or room that’s simply far too large for the kind of conference or event you’re looking to put on – it creates entirely the wrong atmosphere and will blow a significant portion of your budget completely unnecessarily.
Choosing a venue, like the Windmill Village, with a variety of different rooms and suits from small conferencing rooms to large and extravagant event suites will give you the ideal level of choice so you can hold your event in a room that suites it perfectly and will be in line with your budget.
3. What Facilities Are Available On Site?
If a conference is scheduled to take several hours, or an event that perhaps runs over several days, then impeccable facilities are an absolute necessity. With everything from small refreshments, and buffets to banquets and hotel accommodation, we’ve got everything to ensure a flawless business event as well as positive impressions all round; conferences and events are not just about presentation, they’re about hospitality too.
