Conference and Function Venues in PretoriaTop Trends for Conference and Function Venue Planning in Pretoria
With summer fast drawing to an end, it’s time for every event organiser to gear up for the winter conference season. If you are tasked with planning a corporate function or conference meeting on your company’s behalf, we have some advice for you. Don’t be caught out in the cold. Pull off a great event that’s memorable for all the right reasons.
It’s Still All About the Location
This is still the most important aspect of any event, even all these years later. Your conference and function venue needs to be central and convenient, so that everyone can reach it. If necessary, there should be reliable, comfortable and safe accommodation near the venue – should attendees need to stay overnight.
Preferably, it should also be close to O. R. Tambo International Airport, and have all the modern facilities and amenities that you would expect from the best conference and function venues in Pretoria. If that order isn’t tall enough, it should also include its own in-house catering, so that you don’t also have those logistics to fret over.
The Need for Speed is Real
What is the first thing attendees do when arriving at the venue, after freshening up? Check their email. Laptops, smartphones and tablets abound, so everyone needs a reliable and fast Wi-Fi connection.
Your conference venue should be able to help you keep your guests connected with the world through email, Skype and LAN phone calls. Planning a successful conference is also about helping your attendees to stay connected. A venue that is capable of providing sufficient bandwidth and free, fast Wi-Fi capabilities is one that you can’t overlook.
Distinctive Food and Beverage Choices
Trust us on this. If you are going to keep your attendees in meetings and conferences all day, you had better be able to feed them. When you choose a conference and function venue with its own internal catering, this hassle is removed from your shoulders. You know that at a specific time, lunch or brunch will be served, and your attendees will be fed and kept satisfied throughout the day.
If you’re able to use your conference for a bit of teambuilding on the side, all the better! Teambuilding continues to be a strong industry trend, so finding a venue that is capable of hosting your function and that also has the facilities to enjoy teambuilding activities is a great bonus. Make the most of having your team together in one place, outside of the office space, and get even more from your outing.
