Extend your horizons by planning your next event at a unique venue to ditch predictability and energise your delegates.
From encouraging a new mindset in your attendees to merely having an interesting conversation starter to flood those creative juices and get people talking, unconventional venue options could change much more about the final product of your event than you think.
Finding a setting which is polar opposite to your usual workplace could make some large changes in the mindsets of your delegates. If you work in a city, a quirky countryside retreat could offer a slower change of pace and a restful space to let ideas unfold. Conversely, if you already work in a quiet area, finding a venue in a fast-paced environment could amp up the energy and help them to change gear. The impact of your surroundings is not to be underestimated.
Unique venues provide the opportunity to go to town on theming your events. If your conference room is situated in a castle, library, or resort, then why not take the opportunity provided by your surroundings. The new influences and information could encourage changes of directions in the boardroom you never imagined.
A venue with a unique focal point offers the opportunity to take some great pictures for social media. Novelty, niche events, or events that display a creative method of thinking can gain a lot of attention. These pictures can also be excellent selling points for your brand long after the event is over, as prospective clients and employee’s will research oyour event history, showing them your brand’s fun and bold side.
Venues with a difference often come with with some exciting new team building activities. Unlike a conference centre which is purpose built for meeting, corporate events, alternative venues often double up as destinations worthy of a day trip in their own right, which could attract more people to blend business and pleasure.
Breakthrough the comfort zone
Making a breakthrough in your event venue to try something new will carry through to the workplace. By taking what some may see as a risk by choosing an unconventional venue, you can discover new mindsets and techniques you can implement in future events and for delegates to take away.
