10 Things to Consider When Choosing your Event Venue

10 important factors to consider when searching for venue Cost Always work to keep the venue cost down to allow more room in your budget for food and beverages and entertainment. Being flexible on the date can be a great negotiating tool as weekdays generally tend to be less expensive than weekends. A good starting point is to check websites like Ogavenue and Venue Compass for price comparison of available venues in Lagos. Location The venue location is one of the most important parts in planning an event. A good venue should have convenient transportation access and adequate parking. A convenient location means different things for different events e.g if many attendees will be travelling from out of town or if you are organising multiple events in one day, hosting the event at a venue near the airport or the hotel will be beneficial. Better still, if attendees are being housed at a single location, hosting the event at that hotel mitigates logistical challenges. Ambiance Pay special attention to the existing decor inside the venue. Is it stuffy? Dull? Dark? Clean? New? Modern? What style is the architecture and what does the buildings interior convey? If you are holding a […]

Trump Organization to Go Budget Friendly With ‘American Idea’ Hotel Chain

On the campaign trail, President Trump’s children rolled through dozens of small towns across the country, reveling in the adoration of the crowds. But they were less enamored of the budget-friendly hotels along the way, an assortment of run-of-the-mill offerings that were barely distinguishable from one another. That led to a business idea. On Monday, the Trump Organization announced plans for a new three-star hotel chain with a patriotic flair, echoing President Trump’s campaign slogan about putting America first and reflecting the organization’s promise to enter into new deals only in the United States. The intention is to differentiate the chain, called American Idea, by featuring artifacts of American culture in the hotels, such as an old Coca-Cola machine in the lobby or American-made sundries in the rooms. And while the Trump Organization and its business partner say the down-market move is not about politics, the president’s business is inherently viewed through that lens: The chain will make its debut in little-known towns in Mississippi, a state in the heart of Trump country that favored him over Hillary Clinton by a margin of 18 percentage points. The organization’s business partner in Mississippi is a family-owned hotel company whose co-owner met […]
