conference venue hire

Questions you should ask on your venue site visit

Before employing venue finding services, there are actually several things you can do yourself to find a event venue that matches your needs. When organising an event of any kind, it is important to find a venue for hire that works. Whether your event is a large corporate occasion that requires a space suitable for a large number of delegates, or if you need a party venue to entertain guests, you should only hire a venue when you are absolutely certain it is the perfect one for your event.

In order to do this, there are several things worth considering before you book and here at Leicester conferences we have compiled a list of key things to think about when it comes to finding the perfect event venue.

An event lives or dies by its food and you need to be sure that the catering services on offer at the catering venue meets your standards and everyone will enjoy the food on offer. Whether you require small nibbles for guests to graze on throughout the day or want a three-course sit down meal, then Leicester Conferences can offer award-winning catering across our four locations. When looking at your event venue, be sure to ask to see menus so you can see all food options.


The last thing you want to happen on the day of your event is to discover that you do not have the necessary equipment and technology to perform talks and presentations. This could have a detrimental effect on your function, so it is important to check this beforehand. Ask the venue what equipment they have and whether they have the capabilities to perform the services you require. Our Leicester Campus venue comes fully equipped with the latest state-of-the-art audio-visual technology as well as access to high-speed Wi-Fi, meaning that your event can progress seamlessly.

conference facilities

If your delegates are travelling to your venue from across the UK and further afield, then it is worth asking about the accommodation available at your venue. With rooms to suit all budgets, our College Court venue also offers a 123-bedroomed hotel, so whether you require a luxurious suite, or a standard room to lay your head, we can help. Before your stay feel free to ask our dedicated team any questions you may have, and they will make sure they will be on hand 24 hours a day to make your stay as comfortable as possible.

As well as these factors, a venue visit is always worth it when you are planning an event. This way you get to experience the facilities and staff first hand before making a decision. The Leicester Conferences team at our four venues, College Court, Leicester Campus, Oadby Village and Stamford Court, are always more than happy to talk you through our offering, showing you the facilities we can provide. Understanding that it is important to be flexible, all of our purpose-built conference rooms can be adapted to suit your needs.

Situated in and around the bustling Leicester city centre, and with fantastic transport links to the city, Leicester Conferences has premier venues for all occasions.
