2017 really is turning into a 'blink and you missed it' year.

Wouldn't you agree?

As it's coming to the end of the year, Xmas is beginning to come into everyone's peripheral vision. Great for me as I love finding fabulous venues for my clients' festive parties and events.

Finding the perfect venue is an important part of the event planning process. Which is why you need to answer a few important questions first.

When was the last time you had to make an important purchase? Like buying a house or a new car. Whatever the decision was I'm sure you didn't make it without thinking about exactly what you wanted.

The new car for example, before going to the show room you would have thought about the particular make or model, what size car, the engine spec, I bet you even thought about the colour.

How about the house? You've listed your preferred locations, how many bedrooms you need and most importantly you have also thought about the budget.

What's the maximum you would want to spend? 

It's the same with venues for events. Would you start the search without having thought about exactly what it is you are looking for?

Creating Your Own Venue Spec

When I work with my clients, as part of my venue finding service, there are certain fundamental questions I always ask.

There are hundreds of thousands of venues and locations within London alone to choose. From your standard hotel or restaurant private dining room to your more alternative event space. So much choice is amazing but overwhelming at the same time.

By narrowing your search down from the beginning you will spend less time scrolling through google results.

Not only will you be saving time, you will also save money.

So here are the four questions you need to answer before you start looking for a venue.

  • On what date do you want your event to take place?
  • What's your preferred location for your event?
  • How many people do you want to attend your event?
  • How much do you want to spend on your event?

Obviously there are many more specific questions you should ask but in all the years that I've been running events and looking for venues these are the core questions you need to lock down first.
