Function Venues with CateringUnconventional Function Venue Ideas You’ll Want to Steal Right Away
Choosing a venue is one of the most important decisions you will make for your event. It has become more complicated in recent years, as tighter budgets and diverse preferences make it that little bit harder to settle on a function venue that everyone is happy with. Your event isn’t just a place for people to sit around for a few hours while someone talks on stage.
Whether it’s a year-end function, product launch, birthday party or business conference, the venue is a major part of the experience for every attendee. Unfortunately, a limited pool of venues often contribute to the overall “sameness” of events, which erodes at the excitement of attending these functions. What would happen if you broke the mould and knew how to design and host a fresh, unconventional event?
Take Attendees on A Journey
Forgo the tried-and-tested options, and be different from the rest. There is no reason for you to follow the same established and standardised ideas of an event. Working in partnership with your function venue and the catering team, you can provide attendees with new experiences as they enjoy the evening.
Attendees want something different. They want memorable meetings in unique spaces. Granted, you are limited as to what you can do, depending on the flexibility of your venue, but when you decide on a forward-thinking and fun-loving venue like ours, you can rest assured that you’ll have all the support needed to pull off an innovative, exciting and world-class event for your attendees.
Focus on improving your audience’s experience. Is it a structured session, complete with media and presenters? Are you hosting an open, flowing network opportunity? Or is it a social event complete with catering and beverages? It’s okay if it’s a combination of all the above. Let’s take a look at some unconventional ideas that can take your event from the ordinary to the unexpected.
4 Rules of Unconventional Events
You can make the most out of your venue by following these four rules:
- Find a location that is effective at meeting your objectives.
- Define the space, so your attendees understand where they are.
- Fill the venue with décor and accessories that relate to the location and theme of the event.
- Give attendees things to see, do, hear and learn in unexpected ways.
