Traditional boardrooms are a fine place to hold a business gathering. However, they can be a little boring, and if you own a small business, then you might not have a space readily available. You can make your next gathering unique by choosing meeting venues that somewhat different.
Meeting venues do not have to be inside. You can book a space outside for your company to enjoy. State parks, country clubs, and even local parks are a great place to start. Some groups provide Meeting Room Equipment the basic necessities such as tables and chairs while others require you to either pay extra or bring your own. You need to speak with the booking manager about what is included in the rental fees. You may need to speak about the availability of electrical outlets if you have multi-media needs or are hiring a caterer.
Aquariums and Zoos
While it might not seem like a logical step for a company gathering, a local aquarium or zoo might be a good choice. Your guests can view the exhibits before enjoying whatever you have planned. These facilities usually won’t allow corporate events to be held during business hours, so be prepared to hold your event after hours, which is typically the end of a normal business day. Unlike an outdoor facility, you are generally given a room or pavilion with the necessary tables and chairs already set up. Your caterer will also find it easier, with access to electrical outlets.
If you are looking for special meeting venues for your company’s next function holding it at an interesting museum could be an alternative to the traditional ballroom. Like with aquariums, your guests are allowed to view the exhibits before and during the event. They often have meeting rooms where you can host banquets. It is a great place for a more sophisticated atmosphere. It would also make your event a talking point if you chose a museum related to your business or industry.
If your business event is designed to last several days, you may want to have it at a resort. This allows your attendees to stay on the same grounds as the event and cut down on travel. You will have access to a meeting room and possibly banquet hall if you need one. In addition, at the end of the day’s events your employees can enjoy some of the amenities of the resort as they unwind for the evening.
