Every event you organize is an opportunity to deliver a message. Whether you’re organizing a formal corporate event or a casual birthday party, it all says something about your company or you personally. Before choosing the elements critical to your event, think about what character you want to give the event. Choosing a venue that matches the message you’re trying to convey will make your event more sophisticated and stylishly connected and save you a lot of work!
Considerations when choosing an event venue suitable for your event.
Size. Of course, it’s always important to consider your Harbour Kitchen venue’s size to ensure it can accommodate that many people. But the nature of your event also dictates the size. For example, the event should be cozy and intimate if you’re throwing a celebratory cocktail party. If you choose a place with less space for such an event, it will be warm and not conducive to communication. However, this can sometimes be overcome by using curtains, partitions, or movable walls to make the space feel more intimate.
On the other hand, if you are hosting a corporate team building event, your attendees may need enough space to spread out and form their joint teams for specific events. In this case, you want a place with space and an energetic feel.
Architecture. Choosing an event venue whose full presence complements the look of your event is sure to wow your guests. Think about the first impression your establishment makes on guests when they arrive. The majestic columned building at the entrance sets a completely different tone for the house with its charming porch.
Decor. Like the exterior architecture, interior design, and decor should reflect the event’s atmosphere. Choose places with warm tones, subdued lighting for intimate events, and cool colors in open spaces for more modern and energetic meetings. Themes and accessories like table linens, glassware, and dinnerware should also complement the room’s overall feel. If your event has a theme, keep that in mind when choosing a venue. You can also find a place that complements your theme, thus saving you money.
Personnel personality. Check out the staff that will serve your event. Let your room coordinator know if the ambiance and theme of your event suits the staff interacting with guests or if you would prefer staff to be just courteous and professional.
Once you’ve analyzed every possible location, you can quickly narrow your choices to one or two suitable locations. And with a place as perfect as your palette, you can easily choose the flowers, decorations, and menus that will set the overall mood for your event. Your event will send your selected message, and your guests will be impressed with your wonderful evening.
