The term dry hire refers to rooms, event spaces and venues that are provided to event organisers usually as an empty space without any additional features included. This means that you will book the venue, without the catering, furniture, entertainment, or any installation. This is an especially good opportunity for organisers to have the chance to work with a beautiful location, enjoying total control of every last aspect of the event. This means that the organisers will be able to enjoy sourcing their own caterers, equipment and props, set design and AV. Our dry hire venues range from contemporary and stylish to more urban and underground, and are therefore suitable for a wide range of events.
Dry Hire or Blank Canvas?
If you choose one of our dry hire venues, you will be given an entirely blank canvas to work with. You can take advantage of this and give your decorating team full creative control of the event, ensuring that you establish it exactly the way that you see fit. Clients who are working with a budget will benefit especially from such venues, and gives them the opportunity to work with suppliers to ensure that all costs are approved prior to the event. This type of venue is ideal for personalised projects, such as trade shows, fashion and art exhibitions, product launches and even wedding parties and themed celebrations, where you can fine tune the details of the background to fit the occasion.
Hire fees tend to be charges on a daily or weekly basis depending upon the length of your event and are usually very competitive, allowing you to use the rest of your budget to creatively dress the venue.
For those of you who aren’t quite so adventurous, there are some venues and even hotels who will allow you to pay a venue hire fee and also a kitchen buy-out fee, so that you can use your own caterer, but still have the infrastructure of an established venue with it’s heat and light, furniture and so on. This is a perfect compromise for people requiring a specialist catering option.
No matter what type of decor you are planning on working with, hiring a dry hire or a blank canvas venue will ensure that you have the creative base that you need to establish an ideal environment for your event. Function Fixers is one of the leading venue finding companies in the country, providing all clients with perfect dry hire locations that they can dress to suit their needs.
