The Right Questions to Ask When Booking an Event Center

Planning an event? Looking for somewhere to hold it? Event centers across the country offer a variety of services and venue options for all kinds of events. Each facility will have different amenities, so there are a few things you should ask to find out if a particular event center has exactly what you need. Join the Rocky Mount Event Center team today for a blog about what questions to ask before booking a venue.

What If I Have to Cancel an Event?

One of the first things you should ask about is cancellation policies. Different event centers will have their own specific policies about canceling an event. Don’t assume they’re all the same. Make sure you know this in advance so that you know if you have to pay for canceling within a certain period, whether a deposit is refundable or not, and what other factors might be involved.

What’s Included?

If you’re considering holding an event at a specific venue, you should find out whether they offer specific event packages and what those packages include. Just like with canceling policies, what’s included in various event packages can vary significantly between venues and facility types. The more specific you can be with your questions, the better answers you’re likely to get.

How Much Access Do I Have?

It’s also a good idea to know how much access you have to your venue when you’re setting up an event. This can help you assess the time you need to get there and set things up, as well as how much you will need to rely on venue staff. Some venues may also charge a specific fee for setup access, so you’ll want to know about it beforehand.

Can I Bring My Own Supplies?

If you have specific equipment or supplies you need to bring, ask the venue whether they allow events to use outside suppliers beforehand. If they do, you should also find out whether there is an additional charge. You should also ask if the event center staff can provide the same products or services.
