5 top tips for choosing the best venue finding agency


Organising a corporate event or private celebration can be a time consuming business. The sheer hard work that goes into choosing and arranging the perfect venue, making sure that every single detail of your event is carefully executed to your satisfaction, should not be underestimated. Wouldn’t it be great if you could delegate some of this mammoth task to a competent assistant?

Venue finding agencies are just that – an extra pair of hands, ready to help in any way they can. Find a good one and they’ll use their expertise to not only secure the best venue for you but take your event planning to the next level. And they’ll be saving you precious time, effort and money in the process.

Here are 5 top tips to help you choose the best venue finding agency.

1 – Thorough industry knowledge and experience

With many different companies competing for your custom, make sure you pick a venue finder with a solid industry track record. Function Fixers have 20+ years of venue finding and event management expertise, and a team of professional venue finders and event coordinators at your disposal. Not only do we know the industry like the back of our hand, we probably know everyone in it too! When it comes to finding the right venue for our clients, we can hit the ground running fast.

2 – Extensive database of all kinds of venues

A huge advantage of using the services of a venue finding company is that you’ll get access to their superior directory of venues. Make sure you’re happy with the quality and quantity of available venues. At Function Fixers, we have a vast portfolio of thousands of event spaces for all types of functions that are continually monitored and updated to meet our exacting standards.
