After hosting more than 20 OfficeNinjas events all over the country, we’ve learned that location plays a vital role in setting the right tone. We’re always on the lookout for a fun, offbeat space that will inspire creativity and collaboration among our Ninja attendees. But what’s even more important than the venue itself is the communication between you and the primary contact at the venue. With so many moving parts (food, furniture rentals, entertainment, audio-visual, lighting, waste management, security, etc.), the two of you must be on the same page. Otherwise, you might run into unexpected issues that dwindle the guest experience or bring you way over your budget. Plus, sloppy communications could make your venue contact hate you… And you definitely don’t want to burn that bridge. Looking to open up a dialogue, but not sure where to start? We’ve put together a comprehensive list of every question you need to ask your event venue contact.
