Planning the ideal corporate event

If you’re in London anytime soon this year, then you’ll be glad to know that the many luxurious hotels in the central district are providing fabulous corporate event facilities at discounted rates. The Grand Ballroom at the Montcalm is such a venue – due to its fabulous amenities that include meeting rooms, conference facilities, and huge platforms – ideal for hosting events. In this post, we’ll share the most important traits pertaining to a great corporate venue.

Location is everything

Rates are no longer the beacon behind which people make decisions on corporate facilities. Meaning, you should be prepared to spend extra if you’re booking a London conference venue that is ideally located. After all, a corporate event is only as good as the venue itself, and its success is dependent on whether people can easily reach the venue.

Conference Hall

Naturally, we recommend you book an event location in the heart of London – so that people don’t have a problem getting to the venue. With that said, finding a reputable and exceptional venue from which to host your event might not be easy in central London. That’s because increasing venue demand has meant that often times, you might need to book a place up to a year in advance.

Pick a place that has flexibility in its feature set

The best corporate event venues tend to have flexibility options that enable hosts to move partitions, and arrange the venue; making it align with the theme and ethos behind the corporate event. Doing so will make your corporate event seem that much more seamless – as opposed to having an event that seems to stick out because the venue itself doesn’t match with theme of the event.

Provide distinctive food

Conference Refreshment

People are chasing after novelty – they want to break away from routine, and be enthralled in an experience that makes them feel alive. You can help make that happen by hosting an extraordinary corporate event. But what’s an event like without food? It’s very formal.

Break away the tension by providing a fabulous range of foods that guests can have during the meeting breaks. Healthy, delectable options beat fancy, high-fat foods every time – so avoid the cakes and pastries, and opt for healthier options so that your guests can eat to their hearts content without feeling guilty.

In summary, by looking out for a venue that provides these three feature sets – and making the necessary culinary preparations, you’ll help plan the ideal corporate event.
