If you’re looking for a place to host an event, look no further than Millennium Point. We offer a diverse selection of spaces perfect for almost any type of gathering. That’s why we’ve put together a few tips to help you host an unforgettable event.

Choose the right space

One of the most important aspects of hosting a phenomenal event is to find the right space. When doing this you need to consider your necessities and nice to haves. For example your necessities could include:

  • Presentation facilities 
  • High speed Wi-Fi
  • Audio facilities 

Nice to haves could include:

  • Catering options 
  • Having the event ran and planned by another company
  • Having an on-site technician to help with any audio and presentation issues

Here at Millennium Point, our facilities can accommodate a variety of occasions, such as expeditions, parties and performances making it a versatile venue that’s ideal for creating your dream event.

Customise your guests experiences 

Adding customisations to your event, no matter how small, can make guests feel valued and excited about attending. For example, personalising invitations and table places can make attendees feel as though a lot of thought has been put into the planning of the event. 

At Millennium Point, we’re here to help you through every part of your journey ensuring all your queries are addressed to guarantee a seamless experience. 

Consider the location

Location can make or break an event. If you hold it in a place that’s difficult to get to you may see a drop in the number of guests attending. For example, if you’re hosting a social gathering for employees and clients that involves alcoholic beverages, you’ll want to consider somewhere with a variety of great transport links. This will give guests the opportunity to take alternative transport so that they can join everyone else in the celebrations.

That’s why Millennium Point is the perfect place to host your next unforgettable event! We’re in the centre of Birmingham, putting you close to bus, train and motorway links, amazing restaurants and bars and affordable hotels, helping you hold the best event possible.

Invest in quality catering

Depending on the duration of your event, you may want to consider choosing a catered option. Providing high quality food and drink can be a talking point, for a lot of attendees, helping you boost word of mouth conversations about your business and your brand reputation. While food and drink isn’t the main thing you want your guests to be discussing (unless you’re hosting an event relating to the hospitality industry), it is a great opportunity to encourage conversations.  

At Millennium Point we offer sustainable catering options that can take your event to the next level. Whether you want to keep it simple by providing teas, coffees and biscuits in your meetings or you want to step it up with a fine dining experience we’ve got you covered. 

Utilise lighting

Lighting is a great way to set the tone of your event. For example, you’ll want to use bright lighting if you’re holding a formal corporate event or meeting, as this promotes focus and enhances communication. 

But if you’re wanting to hold a more intimate and less formal event, designed to break down corporate barriers and encourage more personal relationships to be built, you’ll want to use warmer and dimmer lighting.
