DOES YOUR VENUE OF CHOICE TICK ALL THE BOXES?
You know how difficult it can be to find the perfect venue… well that often ‘begs the question’ does the perfect venue exist? Possibly not, but there are those venues that come a lot closer than others. We look below at the criteria which should be on your check list:
Accreditations: Like many industries the meetings and events sector has professional bodies and industry recognised accreditations. The best venues will be ‘Accredited in Meetings’ at the highest Gold Standard with the Meetings Industry Association. Another one to look out for is a ‘World Host’ venue, which guarantees the delivery of the highest standards of customer service, whilst gaining accreditation to ‘Conference Centres of Excellence’ means you are amongst one of only 35 elite conference venues in the UK.
Room choice, comfort and technology: Whether you are booking for two people or 600, it’s handy to have a relationship with a venue which can cater for all numbers and all types of event – especially if you require flexibility in achieving your event solutions. All 22 conference rooms at CEME have the latest AV technology, complimentary WI Fi, natural day-light and special inclusive rates. All conference rooms come with pads, pens, blotters, flip-charts, mints, LED screens and complimentary Wi Fi and CEME Water.
Location: Next on the list needs to be location. CEME covers a wide demographic from Central and East London through the Thames Gateway and into Essex and is ideally located for London Docklands and The City with excellent travel links to all the major networks via car, rail or bus. Never underestimate the impact free parking has on colleagues and delegates who are likely to drive to attend – you don’t want them starting the day grumbling about parking fees or not being able to find a parking space. CEME has 600 free parking spaces.
Pricing: Don’t get caught out by cheap initial pricing if all the add-ons mount up. Look out for all-inclusive pricing room hire packages. CEME are signed up for the Fair Pricing Charter, so value for money is assured.
