EasyEventPlanning.com has taken the trouble out of searching multiple conference center websites by compiling a list of convention centers and wedding reception venues in Binghamton NY, Maine NY, Endicott NY, Vestal NY, Greene NY, Conklin NY, Norwich NY, Kirkwood NY, Owego NY and Johnson City NY.
Before visiting banquet halls, be sure to think about how you see your event playing out. If you’ve always imagined an outdoor wedding venue and then proceeding into a ballroom for the reception, choose to see wedding locations that have that available. Depending on the size of the banquet hall, they may book another event during or around the time of your event. When visiting the party places, ask if there will be any confusion for your guests when arriving to the venue, what time can you get into the reception halls and wedding ballrooms to begin decorating and what are options for your cocktail hour location.
Think about the needs of your guests when choosing hall rentals. For many smaller events such as weddings, showers, proms and company picnics, there is no need for a large venue with hotel rooms attached. In this case, ballrooms or outdoor wedding venues will usually suffice. If you are holding a Quinceanera or corporate meeting in a town where most attendees do not live, you will want to look for a convention center that may be close to a hotel or have rooms attached for convenience.
Once you find the venue that suits your needs perfectly, you’ll need to book it. Check out our article, Negotiating Your Event Contract, for tips about how to get the most out of your contract.
