Event Space In Bangkok: What You Should Consider?

Published by:

Organizing an event is a huge headache especially if the event is happening soon. Most of the time, clients hire their own event organizers to save them from the stress that comes with planning a birthday party or a wedding. Now, let’s say you are planning an event in Bangkok but you don’t have a venue just yet. Not to worry because Bangkok has places built to hold venues. The question is: do you know the things you need to consider when looking for an event space in Bangkok? To begin with, you have to understand that there are proper venues for different occasions. You will also need to look at your budget, the estimated number of guests you are inviting and, the type of event you are planning.

Below are some of things you need to consider when choosing an event space in Bangkok that will be your venue for your next big event:

  • Cost- this is the first thing an experienced event organizer needs to consider. A low-cost venue will allow more funds to be used for the food and the entertainment during the event itself. Also, there are certain days when cost of renting a venue is cheaper so it’s recommended that you are flexible when choosing the venue and date of the event.
  • Location- this is something that event organizer shouldn’t forget. Your event, whether it’s a birthday party or a wedding reception, must take place at a venue accessible enough to majority of the attendees. Or, choose a location that can be found by Waze so attendees won’t worry about getting there.
  • Services and amenities- if the venue has a kitchen that can handle your desired caterer’s needs, it’s a good venue. Also, choose a venue that allows you to choose your own caterer or allows you to bring your own food. A good venue also has tables and chairs, sound systems and a clean-up crew.
  • Capacity- of course, you need to consider if a venue can hold all of your guests in one place.

Parking- most of the attendees are bringing their vehicles so they will need a safe place to park.
