Book A Function Venue in Pretoria

4 Questions to Ask When Booking a Function Venue

So many people think that all that goes into booking a function venue is making sure that the venue is able to cater for the number of attendees, and that there is ample parking available. While these are important considerations, there are many other aspects that come into play when booking a function venue. Of course, every event is different, and every organiser will have their own list of priorities.

Whatever your requirements for a function venue are, these questions are sure to help you on your way when searching for the best site. Let’s take a closer look at some of the questions every organiser should ask from a prospective venue.

  1. What is Included in the Venue Hire?
Even though it may seem obvious, it is always a good idea to clarify and understand what is included in the function venue package. Should the need arise, make sure that included in the cost of the venue are audio-visual systems, linen, iced water for delegates, access times, room setup and cleaning costs. It is simply better to be prepared than end up with surprise charges.

  1. Are There Any Cancellation Fees?
Obviously no one books a function venue with the idea that they will need to cancel in future. But life is full of unforeseen happenstances, and should the need arise for you to cancel or postpone the event, you need to know the lay of the land. What costs are involved and would you be able to postpone the event should the need arise? If so, how long do you have to rebook before you lose your deposit?

  1. Is There Adequate Parking for Attendees and Disabled Access?
Even if attendees aren’t from out of town, there will be many arriving in their own cars. This makes secure and private parking a must for any conference or function. Make sure that the venue does offer secure private parking, and confirm how many car spaces are available. Should onsite parking be unavailable, then where is the closest secure parking space available? How much will it cost, and can the venue organise transfers for the attendees if needed?

  1. When Should You Supply the Final Attendee Number and Can You Increase it Past This Point?
This is a rather important point not to be glossed over. Oftentimes, there is a need to add to the final tally of attendees, despite the best efforts of your event’s co-ordination team. If there is a cut-off time for delivering the final headcount, it will pay to make sure what the procedure is, should you need to increase it at a later time.
