The most common mistake is not using a professional venue finder! Professional venue sourcing companies will have the contacts necessary to find a venue perfect for your needs, at a fraction of the cost. Other mistakes made when sourcing venues (without professional help) include:
Not Defining Your Needs Upfront: When you start your search for a venue, it’s important to have a clear idea of what you need from the venue. Make a list of your requirements, such as the number of guests you need to accommodate, the type of event you’re holding, and any specific features or facilities you require. This will make it much easier to narrow down your search and find a venue that’s perfect for your needs.
Not Checking Availability: It’s all well and good finding the perfect venue, but if they’re already booked up for your desired date, then it’s not going to be much use! Always check with the venue directly to ensure they have availability before proceeding any further.
Not Considering The Venue’s Location: The location of the venue is another important consideration that is often overlooked. You need to think about things like how easy it will be for guests to get to the venue, whether there is public transport nearby, and whether there is adequate parking. If the venue is located in an area that is difficult to access or has limited parking, then it could deter guests from attending your event.
