Now that 2017 is in full swing, it's time to start thinking about how you'll go about building strong relationships that will last the entirety of the year. One of my favorite parts about working with clients was engaging in activities and enjoying meals together. I found that being together outside of a meeting environment allowed everyone to loosen up and really get to know eachother. However, I know how hard it can be to continually try to find new things to entertain your clients and make your events stand out from the rest of the competition.
As the world around us is changing, so is the events industry. Through the use of event add-ons and vendors, events are becoming more and more customizable: parties are truly tailored to you and your company. With the growth of technology and interactive media, it’s possible to add photo booths, GIF generators, and even 360° booths. Add-ons take an event to the next level.
Here at VenueBook we see a fair number of events book via our platform and we also see a fair number of events that don't get booked. One of the main issues we come across is discrepancy between budget and actual event cost. While not all events can be saved there are a few things you can do that will help reduce the cost of your event without sacrificing the integrity. That being said we've put together our favorite tips to save money when booking an event.

Raw spaces: your best friend or your worst enemy. If you're a creative mind chasing a vision, raw spaces provide you with the blank canvas that you need to execute your ideas. For others, raw spaces might trigger fear and apprehension. How can I host an event in an empty room? Where are the tables? The Chairs? More importantly, where's the food?!
Every Christmas morning, my mom enjoys her "Christmas martini". She finds a new martini recipe every year and proceeds to make martinis for everyone starting first thing in the morning and ending sometime after dinner. Since I'm not much of a martini drinker, I've put together a list of some of my favorite holiday cocktails you might want to try. It's highly encouraged to make these cocktails when celebrating with friends, dealing with your family, or trying to forget about the mistakes you made at the company holiday party.
