The Value in Venerable Venues

Every experienced event organizer, and even those not so experienced, know that at the top of every event production to-do list sits: “sourcing venue”. The venue pretty much defines what an event will look and feel like and therefore directly influences the overall experience attendees walk away with.

When your client’s briefing includes terminology like ”distinctive”, “unique” and “regal”, experienced event organizers begin to search terms like “non-traditional” venues. Your blood pressure may also rise a tad, your brow might sweat because you know well the set of challenges that come with sourcing and producing such original event venues.

To make that search a little easier, we’ve put together a list of our collection’s own venerable venues that will bring to life any meeting, congress, product launch or other corporate events. Brimming with character and built-in charm all three of these locations also feature state of the art technology, high-end services and all of the requirements included in your corporate client’s wish lists – convenient accommodation, optional a la carte meals, leisure facilities, etc.
