Location

Location is a priority. Many organisations make the mistake of simply selecting a venue which offers convenience for themselves and their employees. However, it is essential to also consider where attendees will be travelling from, and ensure you choose a location they can access easily. Venues should ideally be central and near to reliable transport links.

Cost

Agree a budget beforehand and work closely with venue organisers to put together a package to suit you.

Size

Venue size is important. Too much space could give the impression of an under-subscribed conference, while too little can prove uncomfortable and hot for attendees. Confirm numbers well ahead of time. Don’t forget to factor in the space required for any specialist equipment you may be using. In addition, consider the running order for the day. Will you require one large room for the entire meeting or several smaller ones for smaller team briefings?

Catering

Food and drink will be an essential aspect for most meetings, especially where attendees have had to travel some distance to get there. Many venues offer different catering options which can be tailored to suit your needs.

Facilities

The majority of meeting rooms in London will be accessible to those with disabilities. Many will also provide internet access and other basic equipment. However, it is vital to check this before you book.

Accommodation

For meetings and conferences that are due to start early in the day, take place over a number of days or are likely to run late into the evening, it is essential to check the availability of appropriate accommodation nearby. Delegates can then choose to commute or to stay locally.
