When it comes to event planning, the space is everything. From decor to seating arrangements, a truly beautiful event space can make a huge impression for your clients and their guests.
Sometimes, however, you won’t get the large, wide-open space you want. Whether it’s because of smaller budgets, peak event season, or fewer options in your area, sometimes we event planners have to “make do.”
In my 27 years as an event planner, I’ve worked with my fair share of small spaces. Not every hotel or conference hall has been “ideal,” but I know how to work a room so it looks and feels bigger than it is. I also have learned how to make a small space work for the event on a tight budget.
Whether you’re currently planning an event in a small space or you want to know how to prepare for a future one, there are a few things to keep in mind to make the most of any space.
That’s why I’ve created a simple, downloadable resource you can use to help you make any event space feel larger.
Each of these tips are things I wish I had known when I first started out, and as I tried to navigate smaller spaces and budgets. Don’t wait until you’re trying to make more floor space during your event to think about how to optimize small spaces — download this resource now!SNAG IT NOW!
This resource isn’t just for your current small-space event. This is a resource you can use again and again to advise your event space bookings and design, as well as to guide client expectations.
