When it comes to choosing the right venue for your London event, there are many spectacular places in and around the city to choose from – in essence you are spoilt for choice! But how do you begin to decipher the best ones and more importantly which one is right for you. That choice will depend on numerous factors but here are a few top tips to consider first.
Is it the right location?
Location, location, location. Everyone knows the importance of choosing the right location, that goes without saying. London is a truly amazing place and offers a superb selection of unique spaces from historic buildings to modern blank canvases. Whatever type of event it is you are looking to book, make it as easy as possible for people to get there and get there on time. Choosing a venue which is close to a tube station offers a perfect location and one which guests/delegates can get to easily, cost effectively and with minimal stress.
Is it in budget?
It is a common misconception that a venue in the heart of London will be out of budget. This is true in some cases, however there is an array of quality venues that have function rooms to offer which will suit a range of budgets. A good venue will work with you to look at the options and consider the best solution for your specific needs. There is definitely something for everyone.
What about customer service?
Every event no matter where the location relies on great customer service to make it a success. London venues attract, by their nature, experienced professionals from all around the world. You will get a good feel for the level of customer service that you can expect to receive from your very first point of contact, whether this is by email, phone or in person.
Customer experience is everything and when it comes to selecting your venue, it should be top of your selection criteria.
Is it fit for purpose?
Make sure that there is plenty of room to comfortably accommodate your needs without of course being too big! The space and room set up configuration is a vital ingredient to the events success. A good venue will offer flexible arrangements to suit your needs and have experience to offer you advice as to what works best and why. However, it is not just about the size of the room, it is about the ambience, the décor and the tone. Are you looking for classic and traditional or modern and trendy. A lot of venues offer a variety of rooms, some of which boast grandeur whilst others are more understated. Taking into account the type
of event and the attendees will determine what type of space works best.
