What to think about when planning your event
When hosting a drinks reception there are a couple of things you need to consider before you start making plans.
Think about the type of venue that best suits your event goals. If you plan to have a structured event then you might want to consider an event space that is suitable for a presentation or has built-in AV capabilities. However, if it's just a matter of celebrating an achievement or milestone then something more informal is likely to suit your event better.
Decide on what kind of food you would like to serve. Are canapés going to be the only thing that people eat? Or will there be a proper dinner? Whatever the answer is make sure you don't leave your guests hungry.
When do you need to hold the event? Make sure you know if you can be flexible with your dates as venue prices can fluctuate between dates.
What is your budget and how many people are attending? This will help determine the size and nature of the venue that is required.
When you've considered these things you're ready to start planning for real.
