Picking Camden for your next team away day
Camden is a fun and eclectic area of London where you'll be sure to host an inspiring team away day. Not only does Camden have some excellent venues for corporate events, but there are also a number of quirky bars and restaurants that are ideal for team drinks after your event.
Camden Town is home to a great range of independent businesses and the world’s most recognisable street market so you won’t be short of things to do. You can take a stroll along the canals and pop into independent boutiques, restaurants and bars, and explore all the many spaces available for hire where you can organise your next team away day.
What to think about before picking your venue
Before you even start thinking about picking a venue for your team away day it is essential that you know what your goals are. A lot of companies think that when they have an away day the goal is to get out of the office and spend time together but in reality, there should be more to it than that.
If you can't articulate why you're having an away day then you won't end up picking a venue that will facilitate the right environment. For example, if your goal is to improve communication then picking a venue with lots of breakout rooms will help as opposed to a warehouse where people can only spend time together in one big room.
Another goal might be to make sure everyone has fun and enjoys themselves. This means you need to know your team well and what gets them going. Are they all about activities, games, and competition or would they rather have an evening with good chats and nice food?
The point is, pick your venue carefully and make sure it means something for the team otherwise people won't feel engaged or motivated by the experience.
How to choose your venue
When picking a venue in Camden for your next team offsite, it's important that you keep in mind what amenities you need. Some things to consider are whether or not you'll need a projector and screen, how big of a space you'll need, what food options you'd like available, if there'll be any breakout sessions, if you'd like an outdoor area and if there are any other special requirements for your group.
In terms of the vibe of the place – do you want somewhere small and intimate or will a large space be more appropriate? Are there any "must-have" features for the venue? What about parking? And does it have good access for people with disabilities?
