Are you planning an event in the Nutmeg State, and need a large enough space? Many Connecticut banquet facilities have such features to accommodate your needs. Events vary in purpose and in scope. For example, many corporate and networking events are done outside of the workplace and need a neutral area. School events, similarly, may need a space larger than a gymnasium or cafeteria. Events ranging from holiday parties to weddings need a banquet facility in the state, so what are some of the qualities for which you should look?
All Connecticut banquet facilities need to be large enough to accommodate your guests. Are you planning to have 500 in attendance, or will it be a smaller affair with less than 100? Some banquet facilities have halls large enough for a medium-sized crowd â about 250 â and the space can expand â often, two rooms being attached â to accommodate a larger crowd.
Additionally, having an event outside of a workplace or school, in particular, allows for a different atmosphere. The location shouldn’t seem too corporate â stuffy and uniform â but also shouldn’t have the austerity of a high school auditorium, either. Instead, the location should be unique and, in addition to the interior dÃ©cor, should have a view outside. Many Connecticut banquet facilities, in fact, face outward onto expansive grounds that are green and trimmed in the spring and blanketed with snow in the winter.
Aside from the view, Connecticut banquet facilities should have a catering staff to accommodate your event. In many cases, the caterers will have a few prepared menus for crowds of varying sizes, with entrees, appetizers, hors d’oeuvres, and drinks. At the same time, if you have a specific vision for your menu, the catering staff should be able to take suggestions and work with you to make your event the best it can possibly be.
