What to consider when looking for venues on the Gold Coast

As you scout for the perfect location for your next event, keep the following in mind:

Venue hire budget

Venues vary significantly in price, depending on the function you're hosting.

The events budget for each venue is dependent on the type of function, chosen menu and number of people you're expecting to attend your event. It's crucial that you set yourself an events budget and start the venue hunt early on to avail of discounted rates.

Venue location and surroundings

Choose an event space that has plenty of parking and public transport access. If possible, look for events venues that are located near main attractions, beaches or shopping centres so there is something to do once the event finishes.

Guest list size

Consider the size of your guest list, as event venues can have a set limit on the number of people they are able to host per function. Some event spaces on the Gold Coast can accommodate up to 2,000 attendees; others may be limited to holding only 120 guests.

Venue layout and style

Having the right layout for your event is essential. Find out how many function spaces a venue has and whether they fit your requirements for numbers of tables, chairs, room dividers and dance floors. If you need unique features such as themed rooms or entertainment areas, make sure there's enough space for these facilities at your chosen function location.

Party vibe

Find venues that are ideal for the type of function you're planning. For example, an event venue with 'pink and flirty' décor may be suitable for a 21st birthday party but wouldn't work as well for a black-tie gala night or a wedding venue.
