Venue - Do you use an ideal venue?

Last updated by BrittanyLawrence about 6 years ago.See history

This cannot be stressed enough. The venue for your event is the absolute most important item to get right and to get locked in.

An ideal venue should be addressing all of the following

  • Be able to accommodate the desired amount of people
  • Offer appropriate audio and visual equipment for the talks, such as microphones, projectors and power sources
  • Is there Wi-Fi available? If not, what is your backup plan (if any)
  • Be within budgetary constraints (see rule "Have you got an adequate budget")

Securing the venue as early as possible on the right date allows you to

  • Book in speakers – They can lock in the engagement
  • Announce the venue
  • Determine capacity – You now know how many attendees you can accommodate
  • Start promoting the event
  • Determine what approximate budget is needed
