Once you have chosen your team building activity it’s time to think about the team building venue. Finding the perfect team building venue will add value to your team building or corporate event, especially if you are trying to achieve the wow factor! Are you looking for one in a particular location that is easily accessible to participants or are you looking for a venue that fits with a specific theme? Whatever your requirements it’s important that you get this right as it will impress those attending as well as contribute to the overall success of your event.
When picking the right team building venue it’s important to research the location thoroughly and ensure that it has good transport links such as being near motorways or even airports. This will make sure that delegates can get to the venue easily. Making the location easily accessible will make everyone’s life easier but will also encourage more people to attend the event.
Picking the right size venue for your team building event is crucial to ensure the event runs smoothly and feels right. For instance if you have a venue capacity which is too small, then the event will feel over crowded and uncomfortable for the participants but if it is too vast it will feel empty and lost. It might be good to visit the location in advance to get a feel for the space and envisage how it will work on the day. Depending on what the chosen team building activity is, you may need everyone to be in one room or separate them into groups. If this is the case you need a venue with appropriate rooms to do this. Research is the key here and making sure you plan ahead of the day to ensure everything runs smoothly.
Finding a venue that has that wow factor is usually top of everyone’s to do list. Picking a unique venue will go a long way in complimenting your theme (if you have one) and will help set a good tone and mood for the day. If your corporate event is high end elegance and sophistication you may be looking for a plush 5 star hotel, if it’s a music event you may want a music venue or hall. If it’s a medieval banquette you could select a castle or old historical building. It’s fun to pick something different that will have a lasting impression on your delegates.
This is sometimes overlooked as we tend to get so caught up in the venue’s size and look but it is just as important. Your chosen venue needs to have a good customer service team who are on hand to help you with the planning prior to the event but who are also very hands on when it comes to the event itself. This is crucial to the overall success of your team building event and ensures that everything runs smoothly. We suggest you print out an itinerary on the day with appropriate contact details of any staff who are helping with the planning so the venue have something to work with on the day.
A good venue with have excellent facilities for events as a standard. This will include a variety of meeting rooms and halls, technological support and catering staff. Check what is included in the price before booking and if you are having an event being held over a couple of days remember to check for accommodation.
