How To Find The Perfect Venue
July 6, 2016
The perfect venue is difficult to find especially if your client wants an entirely new venue in a city or town that you have worked in for many years. You need to be aware that due to globalization and the access that each individual has to events and pictures of destinations that take place around the world that your client might feel an inclination to want and experience the setting of such a venue. In order to avoid disappointing your clients you should be up to date about events that take place in and around your city and have connections with those in the same or similar industry as you.
Be Truthful to Your Clients
Most event planners tend to make unrealistic promises in regard to the event. Making such promises not only portrays you as an unprofessional but could ruin your client’s event. Therefore always be truthful and open to your clients about what you can and can’t offer. If you think it’s near impossible to find the sort of venue requested, explain to them that finding such a venue would be difficult. You could instead work on trying to find a similar venue or a completely different venue that they might like.
Work with Production Experts
While technological and production savvy people may not seem the go-to option in order to find out about new venues, it is possible that you can learn a lot from them such as about the possibility of reworking an old venue or even finding new venues. As their occupation requires, they travel from site to site each day for advertisements, photography shoots and so on. As a part of an event management in Hobart team you should be able to work with people from different avenues in order to find the ideal location or venue for your clientele.
Engage in City Activities
Since of late there has been an increase in the number of events that are conducted within the city and its suburbs. Moreover, most of these events are socio-cultural events and food and music festivals that you would enjoy. While in event management it is necessary for you to be a part of other events that take place so that you would be able to gain insights and ideas into how events are being planned. You might also be able to find new and beautiful venues which could be hired for your clients.
Be Up To Date through Social Media
The best way of knowing exactly what events are being planned and held comes through an active interaction with social media users, be bold to organise team building or so. There are several event pages and sites that indicate an upcoming event. You might also be able to find a new venue after scrolling through a particular photography or event album. Therefore, you should always be alert to what is happening around you, especially on social media.
