Venue choice is an integral part of the draw to an event since it sets an atmosphere. It is also a great way to communicate mood and intent. Customizing the venue for a theme is one way to do this but another is to find a place that itself sends a message. Non traditional venues do have a few caveats, though. Keep in mind that supplies may not be available so will have to be brought in. Also visit the place in person to ensure it’s the right space for an event.
- It is very important to select the correct venue for what you want to achieve.
- Budget and availability are not the only concerns when selecting a venue, even though this is what most people pay attention to.
- non-traditional venues are the best way to achieve a good fit between venue and function.
