Questions to ask when hiring a venue for an exhibition, pop up or event
When looking for a venue to host an exhibition, pop up shop or event choose a space that reflects your brand and ethos. Set a clear and realsitic budget for your exhibition or pop up and look around to see what locations and venues best suit. Prices vary depending on the location and size of the space.
Before contacting a venue, ensure you know details such as dates (can be rough), length of hire and what you intend to show to give them an idea of your requirements and to get a quicker response.
Ask about the footfall of the area and what types of exhibitions or pop ups have been succesfull in the past. Weekends are generally retailers busiest times so ask how busy the area gets and decide on whether a weekend opening suits your event.
When visiting venues, keep the following questions in mind:
Is the venue location easily accessible?
How and when can I book the venue?
What’s the capacity?
Do I need insurance?
Can I decorate the venue?
How long can I hire the venue for?
Is there a kitchen?
How do I cancel my booking?
