Tips for Finding the Perfect Event & Party Venue

Here are some key things to consider when selecting a space using an Event Venue App:

  • Location & Ambiance. Will guests and supporters be joining you downtown after work, or driving to the venue on the weekend? Are you aiming for a rustic outdoor venue for a family reunion, a chic and hip event space for a charity fundraiser, or a visually engaging space for a prom or graduation party? Consider both your event vibe and where guests will be coming from when targeting a location.

  • Traffic, Parking & Accessibility. Does your location have a parking lot, valet parking, or would ride-share be a better option? Can guests and supporters with all abilities access the venue and services?

  • Capacity & Exclusivity. How many guests does the venue hold and what’s the ideal number? Will your crew be the only one at the venue or will you be sharing some amenities with others?

  • Budget & Services. What services and amenities will the venue provide and what will you be coordinating? For example, will you need to budget for a caterer, licensed bartenders, security, valet, entertainment, A/V, transportation, tents, or portable restrooms?

  • Duration. Will you be renting the venue by the hour or by the day? 

  • Insurance. What insurance is included when renting via the app? Do you need additional insurance for your group?

Airbnb logo

(*Bonus Option for Small Overnight Events) While Airbnb has a global ban on parties in their host properties, it is still a viable option for smaller professional and personal gatherings and has the broadest geographic coverage of all apps with listings in 191 countries. For parties of 16 or fewer staying overnight together (think corporate retreat or family reunion), Airbnb could be a good choice. Be sure to let the host know how you’re planning to use the property so they can approve your rental. Host Tip: Check out Abnb’s Experiences in your location for fun excursions, cooking and yoga classes, and other opportunities to entertain your crew.
