How to plan a workshop event in Manchester
As with any corporate event, it’s always handy to plan well in advance. Naturally, plenty of organisers and private party planners are searching for the best workshop hire Manchester has to offer, and venue’s diaries can fill up fast. Liaise with management / team leaders to find a date that suits all parties before you get started.
Figure out your budget for the event and decide whether you want catering included or if you only need dry hire (where you hire the venue space and the venue space only). Bear in mind that some venues will operate on a minimum spend basis, while others will charge a hire fee. Don’t forget to budget for the workshop activity and the venue hire itself.
When searching for workshop venue hire in Manchester, you’ll need to consider the facilities on offer from each space. A creative workshop might need more room per participant, breakout spaces and a communal area where the workshop host can address everybody. Some workshop organisers will also need access to audiovisual facilities, too.
As with any team get-together, you’ll need to consider the location and transport links. Here on VenueScanner you can search for workshop venue hire in specific areas of Manchester, including the city centre, Deansgate and the Northern Quarter.
Once you’re clear on budget, facilities, location and timings, be sure to use VenueScanner to compare potential venues on your shortlist. Here you’ll find a library of photos, layout details, facilities and, in some cases, a 3D tour. Once you’ve contacted a potential venue, most will invite you for a site visit, which is also recommended to get a first-hand feel for the place.
