Planning an event is often a rewarding, but challenging endeavor, especially when you plan your event at a venue that doesn't serve food!
Don't worry, we've got you covered.
The first event I ever planned was for my Army unit. It was an annual event, and around 100 unit leaders and their spouses were expected to attend. My boss had just been switched out, and I made the false assumption that my new boss would like the same venue that had been used in previous years—and I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Event planners can fall into the trap of assuming the policies from one venue apply to others when they can be entirely different.
Unfortunately, many venues for mid-size events of 20-200 people have limited information on their website about such policies. Contacting them to find out more is always a mixed bag, too. Some venues will get back to you immediately, while others may take days, and some you may never hear from again.
