Three Things to Consider When Selecting Your Next North Carolina Conference Center Venue

Selecting the North Carolina conference center venue for your next meeting is perhaps the first, and most important step in the successful planning of your conference, meeting or event. While many professional planners have conference center venue details memorized, if you are new to the role or don’t consistently plan events for your company you may be struggling on where to start.

Location, Location, Location. It’s not a phrase limited to real estate purchases. Selecting a venue that is convenient to your attendees is perhaps one of the most important items to consider. Is the location easily accessible via major roadways? Is it close to transportation hubs like airports? Does it have hotels and overnight accommodations close by? These are all items you must consider when selecting the general location of your next North Carolina conference center venue.

Once you have narrowed down conference center venues based on location, you can begin to pick through the capacity of each space. Start with your max capacity and determine what venues offer similar capacity levels. The next item to consider once your capacity has been aligned with potential venues is what specific spaces are available at that venue. Do they offer flexibility in terms of room set up and adding or combining various spaces to meet your needs?

The next thing to consider from your conference center venue are the amenities. Be wary of old technology that may not play nice on the event day. Audio and visual capabilities set many of the best venues apart from the rest of the pack. Many venues may charge for use of these systems, or worse, may not offer professional on-demand support that is included in your price. Make sure your chosen venue has the appropriate hardware and software to make your event a success. Do they have the laptops, microphones, screens, and cameras you need? Who can you call if something doesn’t work during setup or to answer your questions?
