When planning your New York City corporate event, there are many factors to take into consideration. The size of the venue is usually the most important factor in the decision making process, but while many spaces have the size to accommodate even the largest of events, if they’re not in a good location, you could be setting yourself up for disaster. Here’s why choosing a venue location is such an important step in your event planning process.
It is not uncommon for people to travel across the country or across the globe to attend a special event. If you are hosting a NYC Corporate Event which people must travel to, make sure your venue is in a beautiful location that allows your guests to appreciate the charm of NYC. Nobody wants to fly across the country and feel like they’re stuck indoors or sitting in a windowless room all day.
On a more practical note, do yourself a favor as a planner and make sure your venue has everything you need so you’re not stuck with sourcing multiple local vendors or lugging heavy equipment across the country if you’re located out of town. Tribeca Rooftop 360 not only has its own catering, it has its own audio visual service, AV Workshop, which can help you customize the look and feel of your NYC corporate event without having to coordinate with outside vendors unfamiliar with the space.
If you do decide to hold a destination event, make sure it’s near hotels for out of town guests. Reserving a block of rooms at a nearby hotel makes it easy for your guests to find comfortable accommodations without having to worry about getting to and from the venue or simply booking a room and hoping for the best.
If you host a destination Corporate Event, make sure there’s some fun for your guests in their downtime. Hosting company field trips to popular tourist attractions is a fun way to bond your team and show them some local color, so they don’t feel like they missed out on all the things New York City has to offer while they’re in town.
When choosing a venue, make sure it’s accessible so that all attendees can get into the venue without difficulty. For tall buildings and rooftop spaces, make sure there is a working elevator as well as easily accessible emergency stairs and exits.
Even your local guests need to get to your New York City corporate event, so make sure your venue is centrally located and easily accessible by public transportation or cab. Parking may not be possible nearby, but it is a factor to consider if your guests will be driving in from far away.
