Capacities and Minimums

No matter where you’re looking at holding your work function, every conference venue will have their capacities and minimums depending on their venue size. Be sure to inquire about the rooms on offer and their capacities. Think about your estimated attendance numbers, and whether or not the venue has a place that can cater to your needs. There’s nothing worse than attending an event where you feel cramped and on top of one another.

It is also important to consider the food and beverage spending minimums required from the venue.
