What should I look for in a Canberra conference venue?

When choosing a place to hold a workshop, you should first make a list of what you need out of the venue. This will make your search a lot easier. You can check out our "How to make a memorable corporate event" guide to help you. Also, consider the following things when looking for conference venues in Canberra:

Size of the group

What type of workshop are you holding? As different events and activities have different space requirements, make sure the venue has the capacity to accommodate what you will need. The venue should have enough space for all the attendees and for any activity you've got planned for the workshop.


The venue's location is important for two reasons. First, it should be in a convenient location for all your attendees. Second, the location will affect the cost of hiring the venue. If you're holding a workshop that requires participants to travel, then you'll need to find a venue that's centrally located and easily accessible.

Flexible Space

If you're hosting a workshop, there's a good chance you'll need the function room to be flexible enough for you to break out into groups and rearrange tables and chairs.


Besides size, look at the basic amenities you'll need such as toilets and parking. Ensure there's enough space for your group to move around, with room for breakout areas if needed. Think about your food and drink requirements too. Check if the place offers packages that include catering options, decor and accommodations. Be sure to check with your guests to see if the menu can accommodate dietary requirements.


Look for a venue that's accessible to your guests. You need to make sure they can come to the venue easily, comfortably and in time for the event. Look for venues that are close to transport facilities within walking distance, or at least have good public transportation links.
