If you are looking for a party venue in Bushey, then you have a few options – you could host it in your home, or your garden, or you could rent a space such as a village hall, or one of the many available rooms in Bushey Sports Club.
If you’re a business owner and you’re entertaining customers, then you could host the party at your office, however just like entertaining at home there are downsides to this. Hosting a party is often a logistical nightmare. Do you have space, tables, seating, somewhere to lay out food, somewhere to set up entertainment, etc? Will having guests around impose on the other people who are there – especially in an office and trying to get some work done.
Hiring a professional venue is a good idea for any party. If it’s a personal event, then you get the benefit of having guests in a neutral space – less cleaning up to do, more space, no need to worry about tidying up before the event, and no need to worry about letting people that into your home – let’s face it, if it’s a child’s birthday party and you’re inviting the whole class, how well do you really know them?
For business parties, well, hiring a professional venue makes them more polished. It makes them look more well prepared, and it’s better than trying to turn a drab office into a fun place to hang out. It means you can let in your competitors, press, or customers, and have everyone let their hair down; because you don’t need to worry about keeping people away from ‘trade secrets’ or worrying about whether they’ll damage your hardware.
Catering is easier at a professional venue. There are usually kitchens on hand, and you can often use the venue’s own service for catering. In addition, you can work with them for things like entertainment (projectors and sound systems are usually on hand), play areas for kids, etc. Parking is easier at professional venues, and they will set up and take down the party area for you, saving you a lot of time.
Professional venues have more toilets and changing facilities, making life a lot easier for your guests compared to trying to cram 30 people into a small office that only has two stalls per toilet. They’re more spacious, there are cloakrooms and storage areas for guests to leave their personal items. Overall, life is just easier for you as a host, and for the guests as well.
Yes, there’s a charge for renting a space, but you might be surprised how inexpensive smaller spaces can be, and how cost-effective catering for a much bigger party can be when you take everything into account (parking, catering, entertainment, room hire, ticketing, security, etc). The bigger the party gets, the more it makes sense to let professionals take on a lot of the work, because they will be able to do a better job and make the party fun for everyone.
