Here at First Choice Conference & Events, we love a challenge! Receiving weird and wonderful enquiries from our clients for ‘interesting venues’ excites us because it’s a perfect opportunity to home in on our expert venue knowledge. Venue knowledge is key, but without fully understanding an enquiry and all of its components, our venue knowledge can’t be utilized to its fullest. Because of this, every team member at FCCE always make sure they fully understand every enquiry brief so they can help make every client’s event a success!
No two fingerprints are the same and that applies to events too. Every client has a different brief and every event has a different purpose. Because of this, not one venue fits all. This is where ‘interesting’ venues come into play, as innovative events require innovative venues.
‘What is a weird and wonderful enquiry to us?’
An example of a weird and wonderful brief team FCCE received was for an awards ceremony with interactive entertainment for 400 guests in central London. The date hasn’t yet been specified as it’s solely dependent on the type of interesting venue we source for our client. Because of this, team FCCE have the challenge of finding a ‘off the beaten track’ venue with ‘an industrial and unusual feel’. This interesting brief is a perfect chance to utilise our combined 200 years of industry knowledge! Our impressive wealth of knowledge has stemmed from years of client events, site visits, team away days, site management and venue research – meaning no task is too big for team FCCE!
Our impressive wealth of knowledge is something we love to share. ‘Ross Goss’ is our way of keeping our clients in the loop and notifying them on interesting venue openings and any exciting venue refurbishments! Ross has been with the company for 12 years and has an outstanding knowledge of venues. Every week he compiles a list of interesting venues or any relevant venue updates and publishes them in a video on our social media platforms!
What do we recommend?
Despite team FCCE having a superb knowledge of ‘interesting venues’ that we are happy to recommend, sometimes a blank canvas can be the best option for a unique event. Blank canvas venues provide the client with an opportunity to bring their event to life by customizing the theming, décor, floor plans and entertainment.
Interesting venues are subjective and only relevant depending on the client’s requirements. Of course, we are happy to offer continuing ‘interesting’ venue-finding advice. However, any venue can be as interesting as you desire – we just have to get creative! If you have any future events that require an interesting venue to bring them to life then please let us know, after all we are the venue finding experts!
