Turn the “affordable venue” into a world-class event space
Hosting a successful event can sometimes become a careful balancing act, as the struggle becomes finding a way to stretch your limited budget out into an unforgettable night.
But the truth is that ensuring your party, conference or other such function stands out from the crowd often does not have to be as expensive as you think.
For example, there are a number of tricks and secrets of the trade that can turn even the “affordable venue” into a world-class event space.
Today we are highlighting three of the best of them.
Use draping and backdrops
When it comes to making your four walls and a ceiling look like a glamour scene from a Hollywood blockbuster, it’s important to follow the old adage of ‘hide the negatives and emphasise the positives’.
Setting up draping and backdrops to cover walls, brighten up your space and add an extra dimension is a great way to spruce up your venue and ensure it stands out in the memory of all your guests.
A good way to take your venue above and beyond is by contacting a trained and experienced event management team who will be able to assist you in correctly decorating your facility, as well as with employing the other tips and tricks on this list.
Ensure you have the best possible event lighting
By making full use of the best possible AV equipment in your venue, you can help bring light to any dark spaces and keep your guests focus on the positive aspects of your facility.
It’s amazing the difference in terms of professionalism that a touch of event lighting can bring, especially when it comes to presenting a stage or performance space.
If you’re looking to push the boundaries, including little touches like moving gala event lights or 3D projections can really help bring out the best in your facility.
Put on a good show
Remember that guests will often forgive a somewhat unsightly venue if treated to a truly enjoyable event experience.
If your budget or other such limitations mean that you simply can’t offer the best possible facilities, then you must ensure that the presentations or performances on offer are world class.
To this end, make sure that your audio systems are of high quality, as people will often be happy to ignore a slightly rundown venue as long as there is good music and company to enjoy!
