Your Guide to Finding a Unique Venue for Your Event

With the current conditions, most organizations take extra precautions when holding events. While traditional venues are still used sometimes, many seek safer seating layouts. You are probably looking for holiday party event facilities, too, and wondering if it’s possible to throw your year-end event outside the confines of typical event venues.

The good news is, you certainly can! There are non-traditional event venues like the Utah Motorsports Campus that allow you to be more experimental with the type and theme of your event. 

If this is you’re looking for a unique event venue, here’s a quick guide from UMC to help you out: 

Why You Should Choose a Unique Event Venue

There are several reasons to choose a unique venue for your holiday party. One is that you’ll indeed create a memorable experience for the attendees of the event. If you are an event planner, this also means that you’ll be able to offer something different to your clients aside from the typical layouts and décor styles. This gives you more freedom to be as creative as you want as an event planner. As you can add your upcoming event to your portfolio, potential clients can see that you can offer flexibility and that you’re willing to go out of the box for the events that you plan.

Certain Factors Should Be Considered 

When choosing an event venue, don’t get too carried away with your ideas that you’d overlook the practical aspects of having an event in a unique space. Here are some factors you need to consider:

Size of the Space

The space itself will, of course, be your first consideration. Is it the right size? You can’t choose a venue that’s too small because the place is unique. This is not just about how the design layout would look but also the comfort and safety of the attendees. If, for any reason, you’d have to tell yourself that you can squeeze the guests in, you should rethink choosing that venue. 


Even if you’re going for a mysterious or romantic look, you’d still need some natural light as it affects the overall mood and the engagement of those attending the event. If you’re going to have the event indoors, make sure that there are areas where your guests can go to enjoy some natural light. 


You also need to consider brand image and values when choosing an event facility, as this will give you an idea of what venue “character” you should be looking for. What is the organization known for? What are the goals of the event? Will it fit the event venue that you’re thinking of choosing? These are some of the questions you should ask yourself before deciding on the place. 

Outdoor or Indoor

You also need to think about whether the event would be held indoors or outdoors. These days, an outdoor event is preferable but know that this comes with caveats, too. For instance, you’d have to be mindful of the weather conditions, power needs, and others. But then, you can’t ignore the pros either. Imagine what you can do with a race track, a wide field, or even a parking lot when you’re not limited by walls and ceilings. 


These are just some of the things that you have to think about when you are comparing holiday party event facilities. By taking into consideration the factors discussed above, you’d be able to determine the best venue for the event you are planning. As different events have different requirements in size, theme, layout, lighting, and more, it’s best to be familiar with the venues available in your area.
