Now, let’s look at the whole picture in the event room rental process.
The rental fee for an event venue is just a small piece of the pie.
This is the first question almost every potential customer asks us: What is the event space rental fee? And it is understandable considering the fact that most people know very little, if anything, about renting event venues. For example, our own Tarrant Events Center costs between $2000 and $3000 per event, depending upon the day of the week. However, and this is very important to remember, that is just the rent of the room. In the next section, we will talk about the secondary costs of planning an event, but also consider this: Not all rentals are the same.
What is included in that event hall rental fee? For example, Tarrant Events Center includes ten floor plans to choose from, two VIP rooms in addition to the main rental room, a full acre of landscaping, table, chairs, WiFi, large screen monitors, a finishing kitchen . . . but these “extras” are not standard in all event space rentals. The extras we just mentioned are costly if you need to pay for them, so make sure you ask the important question, what is included in the rental fee, when you begin your search.
Secondary costs to consider in an event venue rental.
Etch this into your memory banks: The cost of decorating, or catering, and of entertainment will exceed the cost of the event space rental. Guaranteed! And this is one point most people do not consider when they first start planning an event.
Our suggestion, and this is also our policy: Adopt a DIY attitude and do as much of the decorating, food prep, and entertainment yourself. If money is an issues, and your budget is small, this is crucial.
There is wiggle-room and room for negotiation.
Here is an industry secret most of our competitors probably wish we would not share: In a competitive industry, where every client is important for the bottom line, there is always room to negotiate. Event center policies are not etched in stone, and they are rarely rigid. It never hurts to ask for a better deal. The worst that can happen is you are refused. The best that can happen is you end up saving money.
We are going to get in so much trouble for making that suggestion, but it is the truth.
