Critical Meeting Components: Venues

Description
There are countless types of unique venues available where you may decide to hold an event. A few of the more popular and traditional non-hotel venue choices include convention centers, conference centers, cruise ships, galleries, museums, restaurants, resorts, sports stadiums, theatres, historic homes, gardens, aquariums, embassies, and theme parks. Throughout this document, the term "venue" may represent any one of the above destinations, locations or even a hotel.

Venues provide an opportunity to create an environment for your event that best meets your specific goals and objectives, such as networking, teambuilding and recognition. Your event may stand alone or represent one aspect of a larger meeting.

This paper will provide an overview of the considerations necessary from choosing a venue to staging the event. These considerations include space/location, food and beverage, onsite configuration/logistics, contracting and third party suppliers, and licenses/insurance. The driver of all these factors may be the event budget, which plays a key role in your venue choice.
