Successful events or conferences depend on the good idea, interesting participants and professional presentations. But this is not enough. The venue for your conference may turn into an important factor, which – according to the quality of choice – can make an event still more successful, or leave a bad taste with the participants. The atmosphere of the venue chosen, the technical equipment of the halls, the quality of interpretation and accommodation, the landmarks around, nightlife, restaurants – all this reflects on the mood of your guests.
To avoid unpleasant impressions, prepare very well in the choice of venue for the event. In Bulgaria there is a rich selection of conference hotels at any time of the year. Mountain and sea resorts are ideal with their fresh air and possibilities for relaxation, while big cities are preferred because of easy transport connections and the opportunity to keep your finger on the pulse of life.
How to choose? Decide which venue suits your event. If you are preparing a longer training for a small team, a resort hotel will be good for the participants and will provide relaxing environment outside work atmosphere. For big events and international conferences, good communications and easy deliveries are essential, so look for a venue in the city or within easy range of it. Company trainings and meetings are perceived as vacations by the staff and can raise motivation, if you organise them at places of entertainment such as a spa hotel or a town with many landmarks.
