Have you been put in charge of planning and organizing a large event? From planning and coordinating a large conference with thousands of guests to small and intimate company parties, Lux Catering and Events has been able to create successful and memorable events for our clients. Choosing the right venue is one of the hardest things to deal with, but we have some excellent tips to help you get started.

Rose House

The Right Location

One of the biggest elements in choosing a venue is the location. Salt Lake City is home to a number of excellent venues, indoor and outdoor! Lux Catering and Events has relationships with several venues, and we can work out the fine details for you to obtain the location you need. If you have people traveling from other areas, select a location that is easy to get to. GPS maps have made it easier for people to find their way to large venues, and new interactive maps can make it easy for attendees to find their way around.

Is There Enough Parking?

When you are planning an event, you want to find a venue that has adequate parking. Its important to consider adequate parking before you book a place that ends up causing severe frustration for guests.

How Many People Will it Hold?

It is essential to know how many people are planning to attend your event. The venue needs to have a capacity size to help you comfortable fit everyone. While size matters, it is also important to review safety codes of the venue to make sure they are up to code.

Services and Amenities

A large issue that plagues event planners is dealing with the services and amenities they want, and the limitations of the venue. If you don’t provide the right services and amenities for guests, it can make the entire event end poorly. The cost of food per each attendee is another thing to consider when you are planning the budget for your event. A few things to look for as you consider various venues include:

  • Are tables, chairs and linens provided?
  • Will there be a setup and clean up crew?
  • Does the venue provide AV capabilities?

Overall Ambiance

From the floor plan set up to the flow of your guests through the venue, you want to make sure you find a place that gives you the best ambiance for your guests. The way the event is decorated makes an impact on the entire experience. Lux Catering and Events specializes in creating the best ambiance for your event to ensure everything matches your desired feeling for the event.

Our list can continue on and on as there is a lot to consider when you are selecting an event’s venue. Work with Lux Catering and Events and see for yourself how we can help you find the perfect venue for your next event!
