Why should I use VenueScanner?
The truth is: there are plenty of venue-finding platforms vying to set you up with your dream space, so what sets us apart?
For starters, there’s the sheer scale of choice. VenueScanner has the largest selection of team away day venues in Glasgow of any booking platform, and we’re committed to presenting all of your options in an easy to follow format. We’ve got loft bars and whisky rooms, studio spaces and private dining enclosures across the city, so whatever you’re looking for, you’ll surely find it here on VenueScanner.
Once you’ve found a venue you like the look of, our venue profile pages give you the key information relating to private hire. We have details on capacity and layout, amenities, catering options, images and rates. It’s easy to browse the finest corporate event venues Glasgow has to offer, and if there’s one that takes your fancy, you can send a quick and free enquiry directly from our platform.
What’s more, VenueScanner has a devoted concierge service if you don’t have the time to arrange an away day yourself. This is a free offering as well. All we need are a few details relating to budget, dates and capacity, and we’ll get to work on matching you with a venue that ticks all of your boxes. We negotiate the best rates with venues and pride ourselves on quick turnaround; it’s a great option if you’re short of time or arranging multiple corporate events each year.
What’s the benefit of a team away day in Glasgow?
Even if you absolutely love your job, it can be easy to get swept up in a repetitive routine which, in turn, can stifle your creativity and productivity. Taking your office away from their usual surroundings and somewhere a little bit different gives your team something to look forward to regardless of whether that means a big fancy do, a crafty activity, a chance to upskill or just a smaller gathering of your company’s top performers.
We often have businesses approach us about team away days in Glasgow if there are a few new starters in their office. Chances are, even the most confident and outgoing of newbies is going to be nervous about starting a new job. Inviting them out alongside their new colleagues represents a fantastic way to get to know them on a more personal level. The bond and understanding developed at a successful team away day can help your staff to form effective partnerships back in the office.
And finally, while COVID-19 saw many workers cooped up alone in their homes for months on end, a team away day is a great opportunity to get everyone together once again and to celebrate the community of a happily functioning workplace.
How to plan a team away day in Glasgow
To start with, we’d suggest identifying a purpose for the away day. Is this an annual event to celebrate your staff and their efforts? Are you hoping to build on transferable skills like communication or leadership? Is your team away day to recognise the top performers in your company? Whatever is inspiring you, it helps to have a clear vision in mind as opposed to hopefully searching for “corporate event ideas Glasgow.”
Once you’ve got an objective in mind, it’s time to think about your budget. At VenueScanner, we work with spaces across Glasgow costing from £250 to £100k, so figure out how much money you have to play with and start searching!
It’s important to compare different team away day venues, and not just to settle on the first one that matches your criteria. Glasgow is a vibrant city with lots of hidden gems to discover, so it’s worth using a platform like VenueScanner to contrast different spaces.
Once you’ve found a venue that takes your fancy, send an enquiry as early as you can (the corporate events calendar can get clogged up fast) and, if you can, look to arrange a site visit: this will give you the chance to experience the venue first hand, check out the facilities and maybe try some food and drink ahead of your event.
