reception venues money saving idea

We begin this article about graduation venues with one simple fact: there is not enough quality graduation venues to provide service to all of the graduates in the United States on any given year.


Which leads us to the title of this article: graduation venues need to be reserved as early as possible, in order to ensure that you will have a venue available for that big event in your family.

We are Tarrant Events Center, rocking the event center world of Fort Worth, Texas, and in today’s article, let’s talk about how you can make sure you have a graduation venue when you need one. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information, and to arrange for a tour of our facility.

Graduation venues, by the numbers

This is really a classic case of Supply and Demand, and in the case of graduation venues, there is much less supply than there is demand, meaning the chances are excellent that, on any given year, there will not be a quality event space rental available for a great number of people.

Let’s just take a look at high school graduates in the U.S.   Last year, there were 3.7 million graduates from public schools in the United States.  Simple fact of life: there are not 2.7 million graduation venues in the U.S.  And we just gave the number of high school graduates. Let’s also kick in college graduates with associates degrees, numbering another 1.4 million.

That’s a lot of graduations, and many of them are hoping to find an event room rental for their graduation party, or on an institutional level, a graduation venue for the graduation ceremony.

The reality of this discussion is this: there are not enough graduation venues to meet the vast demand for graduation venues.  And the percentages are worse in small towns and cities.

Making sure there are graduation venues available for you

You have three options for finding a graduation venue for your graduation party.

One, you can hold that party at home.

Two, you can combine with several other students to have a “group” party at one location.

Three, you can actually reserve a real event center, for your party, by beginning your search a full year in advance.

Here is an insider’s industry tip: many event centers take reservations a full-year in advance.  If you truly have your heart set on having a massive, celebratory graduation party, then your junior year, a year before you graduate, you need to begin searching for the event venue.  Period! End of story with regards to securing an event venue.
