- A low stress solution
Finding a venue can be a stressful job. You need to juggle the demands for location, capacity, budget, amenities and environmental factors to get the right result for your event. The great thing about Function Fixers is that we can do all this for you and we’ll do it with a smile. Time to breathe a sigh of relief and give us a call.
- Delegate and save time
Imagine the luxury of having an extra person on your team, someone you can trust fully to get on with the job of venue finding. A great venue finder can be your office ‘angel’, happy to move heaven and earth to get the best solution for you. With this task off your desk, you’re free to channel your energies into all the other aspects of event planning, with full peace of mind knowing that the venue is in safe hands.
- A free service
Everyone wants value for money, and this is where a corporate and private venue finding service really excels. In the vast majority of cases, the service is completely free to clients. Venue finders make their money from the commission they get from the venues. And in case you’re wondering if that means you’re simply paying a higher venue hire rate, you’ll be thrilled to hear that the opposite is true. The best venue finders are experienced negotiators able to secure rates that are lower than if you booked direct.
What’s the process of using a venue finding service?
Having decided that a professional venue finder is the way forward, all you have to do is prepare a brief. After an initial chat with us on the phone, confirm your requirements in writing, and be as specific as possible about numbers of attendees, location, budget, facilities, ambience and anything else your event needs. Then sit back and wait for our venue finding ‘fairies’ to do their magic.
A top quality venue finder will respond to your brief with the minimum of delay, getting to work straight away. Check your inbox for venue ideas and suggestions and make a shortlist of places you would like to visit. Visiting venues before you make a booking is a vitally important step – it allows you to be absolutely sure in your own mind that the venue is a perfect match for your event. At Function Fixers, we will of course arrange site visits for you.
When you’re ready to make a booking, your venue finder will liaise with the venue to double check all agreements before contracts are signed. The team at Function Fixers can also help with sorting out delegate lists, catering choices, decorations, entertainment and a whole lot more. Just ask us and we’ll be happy to help.
