Planning an event


Be clear about what you want to achieve and pass this on so that everyone working with you can meet your expectation.

When selecting a venue consider who is coming to the event and where from? Success is often down to the right location.

Try to be realistic when indicating your expected numbers. Many suitable venues are discounted because the initial estimate of attendees was excessive.

A venue contract includes a minimum guarantee on numbers – this means you will always pay for the minimum number agreed even if you do not achieve this target. More reason, for a realistic estimate on numbers.

Take time to complete your event brief and include as much information as possible. The more details included in the original proposal, the better deal you will receive. Many later changes can result in additional costs.

Try to consult all decision makers to discuss their event requirements before sourcing a venue to ensure the correct venues are sourced.

Discuss with the person holding the 'purse strings' about the budget available for your event prior to sourcing the venue.

Examples of the types of events we can assist with:

  • Dinners & Parties, Gala Dinners, Themed Events, Christmas Parties

Venue Finding FAQ's

What is the benefit of using Reservation Highway?

Our collective approach enables us to achieve the best venues at the best pricing, based on the volume of business we place across the UK.

I am looking for a venue - What should I do first?

Put together a list of the key factors: the type of event, dates (s), location, budget, numbers attending and any additional factors, such as: overnight accommodation, specific layouts, special requirements. Send this to our email and we will acknowledge by return and start work on suggested venue options

How long will it take to get a proposal?

When we receive your request we will assess the best venue options and contact the venues to check availability. Dependent on the size and complexity of the enquiry, response times can vary, but we would hope to get a written proposal back to you within a few days.

Do you arrange site visits?

Once you have seen our venue proposal and made a decision to move forward with your selection we would recommend, when possible, to visit the venue for a site visit. We will arrange this for you on a suitable date and time and provide contact details for the showround.

Who is my contract with?

Our role, as an agent, is to introduce clients to the best venue for their event. When the contract stage is reached we will negotiate the terms and check all the details prior to signature. The contractual obligation is between the venue and the client.

Do I need insurance?

We would recommend that you take out adequate insurance to cover your event in case of unexpected cancellation when you may be requested to pay charges. Please ask for assistance if required.
