For an event planner, it is important to make the right venue decision since it’s often the largest expense and sets the scene for an unforgettable guest experience.

SAMPLE ANSWER -
In order to choose the perfect venue, I build a list of possible venues based on factors like the event’s target audience, budget restrictions, size and capacity, reputation and other special criteria, like parking options and technical needs. I personally visit each venue before presenting a short list of options to my clients, to ensure they are part of the decision-making process.
