Three Conference venue misconceptions, debunked

Finding the right conference venue to create your vision can be daunting whether you’re a first timer or an experienced planner looking for something unique. The truth is finding a conference venue doesn’t have to be a challenge, so we’re dispelling three common misconceptions to help your conference planning go as smoothly as possible.

1. "I need a square box"

Unique spaces don't need to be challenging or create extra work when it comes to logistics. Hosting a conference in a venue full of possibilities provides you with flexibility and the freedom to mix up the layout and get creative with the space. Guests attending your conference will benefit from feeling comfortable with extra room and options to break-out and network. Don't be afraid to lean on your event managers and their expertise to ensure you make the most of an unrivaled space and create memorable events.


2. "Beige finger buffets?" 

One common misconception when booking a conference venue is that the catering will be a little bland and unimaginative. Now with consumers becoming more conscious about food and with the rise of veganism, you should push traditional food boundaries and take inspiration from current trends and lifestyle choices. With food and drink being an important element to any conference, your delegates will expect you to be able to provide a variety of options to suit their needs that are not only tasty, but Insta-worthy. 


3. "All work and no play"

In today's world, it’s no longer about the product, customers are continuously looking for interesting experiences to share online. With this comes finding an event location that not only provides great transport links but also cultural experiences, from historical sites, galleries and hotels to beautiful parks and fine dining, offering your customers a special experience.
