Alternative Event Venues are a huge and growing trend this year. In fact, we listed it as one of our emerging event trends for 2018. Attendees and planners alike are growing tired of the standard meeting spaces and ballrooms. As an industry, we are pushing the boundaries and definition of where events can be held. But how do you find these alternative event venues? What do you have to keep in mind when planning at an alternative venue? Are there really major differences from planning an event at a standard ballroom?
In this episode of #EventIcons our iconic guests Cindy Y. Lo, DMCP of Red Velvet Events and Babs Nijdam of Sequoia Partnership will discuss everything you need to know about alternative event venues. They will discuss what you need to know to be prepared for an alternative event venue. Why venue walkthroughs are so important. What benefits they see from offering clients to step outside the ballroom. The challenges they face working with clients at alternative event venues and so much more!
