Every corporate event requires a great venue, the place where guests will gather to socialize, dine, and enjoy the entertainment for the night. A venue should provide appropriate atmosphere as well as the essential accommodations for the event. But not every venue is created equal. Choosing the wrong venue can dampen the party and cause more problems for the event coordinator.  If you’re planning a corporate event, it’s important to find a venue that meets your party needs and requirements. Here’s a brief look on how to choose a venue for a corporate event.

Location, location, location. When booking a venue for your corporate party, it’s important to consider its proximity to the business that is having the party. Whether you’re inviting staff members, management, shareholders, or customers, picking a venue out of town can be inconvenient for your guests. However, selecting a venue close to your business will ensure a successful turnout. Picking a spot close by also makes it easier for guests to arrive in a timely manner.

When choosing the location, it also helps make it easier on the event catering. For example, if you’re throwing a party in LA, hire event catering in Los Angeles. Finally, make sure the venue is decorated appropriately. If you’re planning a black tie event, it’s important to find an elegant venue.

Size matters. The venue must be large enough to accommodate your guest list. In fact, every aspect of the venue should accommodate the size of your party, from the number of bathrooms to the number of table and chairs for dinning. Don’t try to save money by booking a small venue. Instead, make sure that the venue can accommodate your guest list and more. You never know if you will have last-minute additions to the guest list. If you’re planning on providing food and drinks, you will also need to make sure that the venue can accommodate the space for your guests to dine comfortably.

Accommodations. The right party venue should feature the accommodations you need for the party. Are you planning on hiring a band or DJ? Select a venue with a stage and a dance floor. Are you providing food and drinks? The venue needs to have tables and chairs to accommodate your guests. You might even find a venue that has its own catering services. For example, Anoush Catering works with several venues throughout LA. Are you planning a VIP event? Make sure that the venue has valet parking and coat check services.


Anoush Catering is one of the elite LA catering companies in the city, offering full-service catering for corporate events and weddings. Anoush also provides catering in Orange County and surrounding areas.
