How to identify a dedicated conference centre
It might seem like an easy task to book a conference venue for an event, however, there are plenty of finer details to consider before committing yourself to a conference centre.
There are numerous options available when it comes to choosing a conference centre and to ensure that your event fulfils its potential, look for a dedicated conference centre to be sure you get the space and service your event deserves.
Before you book a conference centre there are several questions you should be asking to ensure everything you require is included. Here at College Court we have compiled a few key factors that you should be thinking about prior to booking:
Quite often when organising an event, you will need to deliver presentations and talks to delegates and therefore need the relevant equipment to do this effectively. Whether you are giving a business presentation to potential clients, holding a networking event or simply want to deliver a talk to employees, College Court is able to provide you with the best state-of-the-art AV technology, providing a boost to every event. As well as this, an expert team of technical experts are on hand should any issues occur. Delegates will always expect internet access wherever they attend, so you also need to consider the Wi-Fi available at the conference centre. At College Court we have free, high-speed Wi-Fi to keep people connected and up-to-date for as long as needed.
It is often the people that work at a conference venue that make or break it and it is important that the staff have a good knowledge of what is needed for a successful event to be effective. Irrespective of whether you are an experienced event host, or it is the first time you are doing it, before you book a conference centre ask about how the staff can assist you on the day. Here at College Court our experienced events team take a bespoke approach to every occasion making sure that every detail is taken care of, so you can enjoy your event.
One feature that can really set dedicated conference centres apart from the rest is if it provides accommodation.
Choosing a conference centre with dedicated in-house accommodation makes it easy for those delegates travelling from further afield to attend. Therefore, before you book the conference centre check what accommodation is available. Having guests stay over means you will not have to worry about how they have managed to get home once the event has finished and will ensure it lives long in the memory. College Court has award-winning hotel facilities with a range of rooms and suites to suit any budget. All rooms come complete with complimentary toiletries, tea & coffee making facilities and a luxurious double bed.
Another good way to ensure that you get the dedicated conference centre that is right for you is to visit before your event is due to take place. This way you will be able to ask any questions you may have and address any concerns.
