The key to a successful event is in the details, and there are some small but significant ones that you will not want to forget when you are in charge of hosting a party, corporate event, or wedding reception. When you choose the right venue, many of these will be taken care of already, but you will want to know what to look for when you select a space for your event. Here are some of the essential details to consider next time you host a major event.


Coat check

If your event is taking place during the fall or winter, you will want to provide a place for guests to put their coats. This way you will not have coats draped over chairs creating clutter in your event photos. You can also ensure that coats and purses will not get lost during the evening’s festivities.



Finding parking in New York City can be a big problem—especially for guests trying to get to your event on time. To avoid the fuss of finding a parking space, you may want to provide valet parking with attendants working throughout the event. This will allow guests to arrive with no stress and allow them to safely get back to their cars once the festivities wind down.


Wi-Fi access

Wi-Fi is a necessity for corporate events and business meetings, but it can actually be necessary for wedding receptions and other parties where multimedia presentations are on the schedule. Check with your venue ahead of time to be sure that they have Wi-Fi and any necessary A/V hookups ready to go for your event.
