Call us at 817-996-3636 for answers to all of your questions about renting an event room rental.
The two problems you will face in looking for a reunion venue
In the event center business, it simply is not true that “one size fits all.” To put it another way, it is very rare that an event center can be ideal for anyone looking for a reunion venue, simply because of two very important factors: budget and vision.
First, let’s talk budget. There are inexpensive reunion venues and there are expensive reunion venues. You can pay in the $500 range, or you can pay $5000 or more. As my Grandma Doris was fond of saying, that’s just the real of it. Your operating budget, which will include money for rental, for decorations, for food, and for entertainment, will limit the number of event space rental choices. You may want the “Taj Mahal of Detroit,” but you simply cannot afford it.
Now, let’s talk about your vision. Make a list of all the things you want in a reunion venue. This list may include multiple big-screen monitors. It may include a stage. It may include easy access with roll-up doors, or it may include VIP rooms in addition to the main reunion venue. The good news is your vison will narrow down the list of possible venues very quickly. The bad news is your vision will narrow down the list of possible venues very quickly, and the very bad news is rarely will you find a reunion venue which matches your budget and your vision, so prepare, in most cases, to be flexible during your search.
The one feature you should be looking for during your search
Having issued that dire warning, the one feature we believe to be the most important in a reunion venue, or any venue rental, is flexibility. The way the venue is designed, the various configurations it has, and the options it avails to the clients will go a long way towards matching your vision with some sort of reality.
Why Tarrant Events Center is the ideal reunion venue
Take our own Tarrant Events Center as an example. We offer ten floor plans to choose from. We have various VIP rooms in addition to the main room. We have a finishing kitchen should you need it, we have multiple big-screen video monitors, a moveable stage, and over an acre of landscaped grounds. In other words, we have the capability to offer many different “looks,” depending upon the needs of our clients.
We may not match your vision perfectly, but we come much closer than any of the “fixed design” venues in the Fort Worth area.
Flexibility is the key!
