What should I look for in a corporate retreat venue?

There are many factors to consider in your search for a business retreat venue. Since this event is mainly for the benefit of the employees, you should consider their preferences. Check out our guide on how to create a memorable corporate event.

Location and accessibility

The main objective of a corporate retreat is to give everyone a chance to sit back and relax. It's also a way to develop camaraderie within the group and probably have a healthy discussion on what can be done to improve the business.

A successful retreat should be stress-free and spending it in the perfect location is the first step to achieving that. If the venue is too far away, the attendees will end up stressed from the travel to and from the place. That's not a good start and end to your retreat. Choose a location in Melbourne that is conveniently near and accessible.

Conference venue capacity

If the retreat will last for more than a day, you need to book accommodation. Make sure that the venue event or meeting space is big enough for large or small conferences and meetings. Determine the number of attendees first and look for a venue that can entertain said number of guests.

Food and drinks

Does your corporate retreat venue provide catering? If the venue does provide it, find out what kind of food they have on their menu and if there are any restrictions on what you can order or bring from outside. Your attendees expect a tasty meal after a long day's work so it'll help if the venue has a decent restaurant with quality food. You should also provide some snacks and drinks for your attendees as part of the event. This is essential if you'll be engaging in a number of activities that will keep them busy throughout the day.


Make sure the venue has everything you need for your corporate retreat. This includes equipment, furniture and even a projector if you plan to have a presentation. If possible, ask about other available facilities such as WiFi access, parking spaces and restrooms.
