5 Tips to Help You Select the Best Training Venue

Few employees report that training is their favorite part of their career. It’s time consuming and often requires them to travel a good distance.

As an employer or event planner, it’s your duty to select training venues that simplify the process. The conference centre you hire should follow a few basic principles if you really want to inspire employees. Check out our recommendations for the booking process and what you need to know beforehand.

  1. Give thought to atmosphere

No, you aren’t booking a romantic evening out with your significant other, but atmosphere still counts. The venue you select should reflect the goal of your event—training.

With that goal in mind, make sure the event energises and motivates your employees. A brightly lit environment that’s a bit edgy will do the trick.

  1. Accessibility

Is it easy to get to the venue meeting space? Where are your employees coming from in relation to the venue? Are there transportation options readily available nearby?

Your top priority should be finding a conference centre that is easy to get to. Otherwise, your employees will begin their training with a sour taste in their mouth.

  1. View the Price Objectively

Yes, your budget is important. However, view the price with a grain of salt. If it sounds like a good deal, inquire about extra fees that may be added later and request a final bill ahead of time. Place an emphasis on your objective of the event before making a decision.

  1. Worthwhile venues inquire about your goals

The best training venues will request an outline of your goals for the event to see if they can provide what you need. Don’t forget that customer service plays a pivotal role in the success of your event.

  1. Survey delegates behand

If you really want to make your employees happy, do a quick survey beforehand. Ask what is important to them, what they require to absorb the most information.

For example, will catering help them stay focused? Is the location the most important aspect? Getting feedback and then using it as a basis for your decision produces much happier attendees.

Go beyond the norm and discover a conference centre that inspires your employees and produces the best results by using these tips as your guide.
