Detailed Site Inspections Without The Travel

These days travel has some extra concerns (to say the least) and sometimes it isn’t even feasible. We understand, however, that selecting a venue for an upcoming event is one of the most important decisions to make. With so many factors to consider, a venue site inspection is key in that process and a web search can only provide so much insight. Since 2003, we have successfully saved our clients thousands of dollars by serving as a local presence on the ground, working as an extension of the companies we’ve had the good fortune of working with. We are seeing now more than ever that having a presence in every US city and town is very beneficial to planners.

We’re GCG Event Partners, a national network of Professional Meeting and Event Planners who can help planners decide if the venues they’re considering meet their required specifications. Our dedicated members are located in every state and major city across the country.  Based on every client’s specific needs, we’ll hand-select a detail-oriented meeting professional from within our network who will visit the venue and collect important data. The culmination of these observations assists meeting planners in determining if the venue matches their event’s particular needs and vision. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that local site inspectors have experience and knowledge in providing this service.

We encourage planners to design a custom site inspection checklist, however, examples of what Local Venue Site Inspectors can do include:

  • Evaluate if the venue’s meeting space is adequate for your specific event
  • Send you photos and videos of the venue, meeting space, registration area… etc
  • Determine if the meeting space layout is optimal for today’s standards
  • Locate the break-out rooms and their proximity to the general session room
  • Discuss AV needs with in-house or preferred providers
  • Confirm availability and use of internet access
  • Determine optimal location for registration area
  • Locate elevators in relation to meeting space and guest rooms
  • Determine parking accommodations at the venue and nearby parking garages and lots (designated parking lot, self-pay, valet…)
  • Tour the guest rooms
  • Clock the travel time and distance between the venue and closest airport
  • Review the cleanliness practices adopted by the venue in relation to new Covid-19 standards

GCG Event Partners can make one of the most important aspects of meeting planning easier. As an added bonus, we can remove any concerns you might have about traveling.
