Space: The Final Frontier

event setup
It was a few years ago when I was asked by a fellow colleague in the Air Force what I do in my civilian life. A multitude of descriptive sentences, hand motions, and diluted terms and processes were used in my synopsis. After about ten minutes of my rambling I concluded. Without hesitation the apt pupil merely replied: “You sell space!”

Although he didn't get it right, it summed up what our industry is all about.

For meeting and event venues, space is at a premium. Not only does every inch count, but also how objects are utilized in that inch. This is the main factor in how effective a function is. Case in point – look at your desk. It may be very clean and organized. But, at least one person reading this will have papers stick to their elbows whenever they move from one position to another. Better still, it's quite possible that you or someone you know is being held captive by at least one of many usb or power cables that reside in the surrounding work area. The most efficient workers know where everything is because their area is clean and organized.

These are probably the individuals in your office who are able to accommodate every request in a timely manner and who also know the answers to most every question that is directed their way. In most cases, they are probably enjoying a great amount of success in their career as a result of these and other organizational practices.

Take this idea of space optimization and apply it to the meeting and event arena and one can realize just how important a setup can be.

It’s easy to see why venues that know their space and seem to offer the perfect answer to any setup query are on the short list of options for top meeting and event planners around the globe.

Want to hear from the planners themselves?
