Make sure the discount is enticing enough for potential customers to become real customers, and count the discount given as a marketing expense!

  5. Metal drink containers and umbrellas

Make Sure You Visit the Site


You’ve probably heard of some great corporate training venues around Metro Manila from your business connections. Suggestions should always be welcomed and considered, but make sure you visit the site before you book it. This isn’t just about seeing the place for yourself, but it’s also about gauging the venue’s location and the travel time. Ideally, you want to choose a space that is accessible for all the attendees, so choose a place with easy access to public transportation and ample parking for those bringing their own cars.


Check the List of Inclusions


Events spaces that cater to corporate training seminars will have an extensive list of inclusions that come with renting the venue. Make sure you take a look at this list carefully to help you get a clearer picture of what you’ll have on-hand on the day itself and what you may need to bring with you. Standard inclusions such as projectors, sound systems, and WiFi are must-haves.


Review Venue Set-up and Capacity


All event spaces will provide you with the capacity of their venue, but make sure to ask what kind of set-up this number reflects. Chairs and tables can be set up in a number of ways, which directly affects the number of guests a certain venue can accommodate. Similarly, how your tables and chairs are set up can have an impact on how easy it is for your participants to listen to trainers and speakers. Make sure you discuss this with your event venue representative to make sure your preferred venue can accommodate your preferred set-up and number of guests.


Does the Venue Come with Catering?

Food plays a big role in whole-day corporate training sessions and is often what most attendees remember the most. For whole day events, it’s often a good idea to provide a morning snack, lunch, and an afternoon snack. Not only does this keep participants happy, but it also helps everyone stay focused on the sessions instead of wondering where they’ll be having lunch.
