RIBA Venues – It is Important to Get the Venue Right

The venue that you choose for your conference has a huge impact on the success of your event.

A great way to connect with clients, potential clients and others in your industry is to hold a conference. Businesses use them to announce new products, meet new connections, and spread brand awareness and have been doing so for decades. The need and desire for companies to promote their brand and to expand their reach has led to an increase in conference bookings. They are very popular in the media world and enable businesses to connect with their audience on a face to face level and bridge the gap between the internet and reality.

Ned Desmond, chief operating officer of TechCrunch said that “everybody is getting in on the game, because it is a good business, and it definitely has better margins, when done right, than the regular equation of journalism and writing.”

Stephanie Ellrott from RIBA Venues, an events venue in London, said “conferences are hugely popular with businesses and allow businesses to meet current and new business contacts. Many people thought that webinars would take over and the number of face to face conferences would decline but this hasn’t happened. There is no substitute for the personal touch and as such, conferences have become increasingly popular.”

“To get the most out of a conference, it is important that you choose the right venue as it has a big impact on how the event runs. For an event to run smoothly you need everything to be right and this comes from experience and careful planning. It is important to choose a venue that fits your brand values.”

She went on to say “there is no one size fits all when it comes to a venue and therefore you need to choose one that is right for your company but also right for your delegates too. Think about how many people will attend the event, and think about how the look and feel, lighting and seating will affect your conference. Think about what specific needs your audience have as all of these factors will affect your choice. Once you have chosen a venue, you can then get on and focus on organising a keynote with real punch that your guests will love.”
