Planning, organising, and pulling off a corporate event is hard. There are so many things to do and consider, it can be difficult to know where to start. Most experienced event planners will tell you to start by choosing the venue, and the rest will fall into place. Sounds simple enough, right? Well, selecting the right venue can be just as overwhelming. Smoked Garage is a world-class events venue offering a range of packages and options to suit events of all shapes and sizes. We understand the enormity of the task of planning a corporate event, which is why we’ve provided you with a few pieces of advice to make your life easier when choosing corporate event hire in Brisbane.
If you’re planning a corporate event, make sure you consider these things before settling on a venue.
There are significant differences between planning a seminar and a Christmas party, and the overall tone of the event should be reflected in the venue.
Ideally, you want to choose a location that is easily accessible for everyone attending. Somewhere close to public transport or with plenty of parking is a good choice.
Before looking at venues, you need to get a rough idea of how many people will attend. If the event is a small-scale training session, consider booking a smaller room with plenty of seating options. On the other hand, if you’re hosting a party with drinks and dancing, you’ll need a larger space for dancing and socialising.
If the venue offers food and drinks packages, that’s just one less thing you’ll have to consider when planning the other aspects of the event, so it’s well worth considering.
There are a few reasons why Smoked Garage makes for the perfect corporate event venue in Brisbane.
Smoked Garage is located in the heart of Fortitude Valley, the bustling hub of Brisbane’s culture. Not only is our venue easily accessible, but there are plenty of bars and dining options close by, so your guests can entertain themselves after the event has ended.
