How do you select the right choice to meet your needs? These tips can help.

Go for the Wow: You want a space that is going to make all of your attendees step back and say “Wow” the moment they walk in the door. It’s really the only way to kick off an event on the right foot, so when you’re previewing, make sure it has that factor when you walk through the …
