High quality AV and presentation technology is most important aspect of conference venue, reveals survey of event professionals

October 9, 2018

‘A good range of high quality AV and presentation technology and support staff’ is the most important aspect when choosing a conference venue, other than cost and suitability of rooms.

This was revealed by a recent poll of almost 100 event professionals.

‘Good customer service’ was a close second with ‘the quality of food’ just behind in third place.

Respondents were asked to choose their top three priorities from a lengthy list of venue features and these three were clearly at the top. In fourth place was ‘Free wi-fi for delegates,’ ‘clarity on pricing’ was fifth and ‘a venue that understands our priorities’ in sixth, just ahead of ‘good lighting in meeting rooms including natural light.’

In eighth place was ‘comfortable seating’ and while ‘Other’ was ninth, most specified ‘accessibility of the location.’  ‘Creativity in food options’ completed the Top Ten.

“Despite this, many agents, venues and event organisers will perhaps be surprised that high quality AV and presentation technology came top.”
