Question. I’ve been to a bridal show so what’s the difference in Venue Visits?
Answer. At a typical bridal show, venues are there with photo boards to help an engaged couple imagine the space. Venue Visits offers an immersive experience by bringing the couples to the venues. Venue Visits supports the venues and the couple! The venues are able to showcase their event space and potential couples are able to visit multiple venues in a day, saving time and effort!
Question. What are your COVID procedures for this event?
Answer. Participants receive a mask and individual hand sanitizer at registration. This event is limited to 20 passengers per bus (50% capacity). At each stop, the motorcoach is sanitized before re-boarding. Each vendor will maintain COVID protocols. Masks are required during the event and while onboard the bus.
Question. I want to book my venue now before Venue Visits. Why wait?
Answer. Great! Go for it! There are other advantages to participating in Venue Visits. This experience provides the opportunity to visit the venues while decorated for inspiration. PLUS, there are vendors of all types onsite at each location offering exclusive discounts and ready to talk with you about your special event.
Question. I've never considered any of the venues on the tour. Why should I participate?
Answer: That's an easy question! The vendors and the venues! Even if you have not considered any of the venues, you will be surprised what happens when you enter a space. Plus, the decor and room setup provide inspiration. Even if you already have a venue or know what you like, Venue Visits has an array of vendors ready to help you create your special moment.
