Event Venues: Step Outside the Tried and Traditional

Choosing a venue for an event is one of the most important decisions in the event planning process. It can influence the energy in the room, the event’s performance, not to mention the budget and logistics.

While there are the tried and true traditional hotel/conference center options, non-traditional venues, such as gothic churches, barns, and museums are increasingly popular, and with good reason – they provide attendees and guests with a truly unique experience, ignite conversation, and usually offer the choice of bringing in your preferred rental partners.

After fleshing out the event details and requirements, you can begin your search for an unconventional space to meet your needs. The McColl Center for Art and Innovation, located in uptown Charlotte, NC, is a great example, having just recently become available to rent. This neo-Gothic former church provides a fresh, unique space with edge and excitement for corporate events, non-profit fundraisers, holiday parties and more. With a revolving display of work by the Artists-in-Residence, a convenient location with free parking, and large, open space featuring warm brick walls and high, beamed ceilings, this architectural treasure offers a one of a kind guest experience for both intimate and large scale events.

The bottom line: choosing a unique venue for your event will compliment and enhance the purpose and energy you are striving for. There are many exciting options available that will work logistically, and within your budget.
