Are you organizing an event overseas? Communications and correspondence can be the hardest things to deal with, due to language barriers, time differences and work schedules. Here are a few things you should remember when booking a venue abroad.
- Obviously, the first thing to do is to look at their website. A well-laid out, up to date site is a telling point that the company care about their reputation.
- Google Map their address, and have a look at the Street View. Is the area as pleasant as they make it out to be? How far away is the beach and how do you get there? You may discover a hidden flight of steps or road with no footpath that prevents some individuals from moving around as easily.
- How easy is it to get there from the airport? Will you need to hire cars, or would minibuses be more appropriate? If you only have to travel short distances, hiring bicycles is a cheap and efficient way of travelling.
- Using a venue finding service is the best way of guaranteeing that your budget and communications are in order. It means that you have someone dedicated to organizing the details while you work, and lifts the stress out of corresponding with the venue. If there’s something you don’t understand, you have someone to ask – and whilst it’s easy to book a hotel online for a holiday, having functions such as weddings or conferences abroad requires a lot of dedication and attention to detail. Cover all possibilites, and get an extra pair of hands on board!
