Corporate Events Venue in NJ

The most crucial part of organizing a corporate event is choosing the venue. The place you choose has to be really elegant, spacious with suitable ambiance. But choosing a venue itself depends upon several things like the number of people, kind of event, location and other things. We at Richfield Regency want to offer you some tips on choosing a corporate events venue in NJ

Here are some things you will have to take care of before hosting a corporate event:

Guests
The very basic requirement before hosting any event is to know the number of guests. You can only begin shortlisting the venue when you have an average idea of the number of people that are supposed to be there. The guests will determine the location depending on where most of them are from, following food, travel arrangements and everything else.

Whether it's for a smaller event or for over one hundred people, we can accommodate the number of guests for your event.

Location
The next key factor is the location. You can only narrow down to few options of the venue if the location is final. If the location is pre-decided, usually when the event is supposed to be held in another city, you need to inform the guests well in time. You will also have to arrange overnight accommodation and travel. And if the event has to be planned at a really short notice, it is best that you pick a location in proximity to the guests.

We are conveniently located in Verona, NJ, right across the street from Verona Park!

Check availability and space
Once the number of guests and location is finalized, start looking for venues. You will have to check if they are available during those dates so start early. Make sure the venue is spacious enough. See to it that it has enough room for meetings, breakout sessions, award dinners and whatever else is involved. Also, before booking check if the rooms available are on the same floor and not too far from each other so that the guests don’t feel disconnected.

Before you book with us you are more than welcome to schedule a tour of our venue and we can discuss how we can all arrange the event so that you and your guests will feel comfortable.

Transportation and parking
The need of transportation will depend upon the location. If the event is going to be held in a distant place that requires certain guests to get there by flight, it is necessary that you make pick up arrangements for them from the airport to the hotel. However, if the event is in the same city transportation will not be an issue. The most you might have to do is arrange for cars or cabs to pick up certain people. The people who are driving to the event are entitled to a safe parking space, so you need to take care of that too.

If you're worried about parking, worry not! We have plenty of parking available on site.

Accommodation services
You must ask what all is included when you book the venue. If the tables and chairs you require for the meeting are available. Wifi will be a basic necessity, make sure the venue has a good range of wifi. Some options may be complementary, some may be not. If there are presentations involved, you will need a projector. You can ask them if they provide it otherwise carry it with you. 

We want you to have as great of an experience as possible, if we can help you by providing accommodations, let us know!

Catering
Most venues have their own caterers, so that’s one job off your hands. All you have to do is finalize the menu. The menu, of course, depends upon the time of the day and choice of guests. The food quality and quantity must be good as these events and long and tiring. Have lots of beverages served to keep the guests refreshed!

At Richfield Regency we have onsite catering and several menus to choose from. We can also accommodate for your guests dietary needs!

Prom Venue in NJ

Prom is most likely the last night that you would see all your high school friends gathered in a place. It marks the end of the high school journey and creates memories that will stick with you for the rest of the night. At the center of exciting issues like picking a date and an outfit is where the prom itself would hold.

There is a shift from using the school hall or gymnasium for prom. This has opened up exciting possibilities for the choice of venue. However, things can really turn sour with a venue that is not suited to your prom needs. For a successful prom, break down your task and get a professional service with a wide range of venues to put you through. Let us take a look at some interesting venue ideas and things to consider before settling on a venue.

The venue
You should select a venue that can expand to meet the demands of the high school class. In New Jersey this can easily add up to at least a few hundred guests or even more. Restaurants cannot really be considered an option because while they do have the capacity to feed hundreds of students and their dates, chances are they do not have the room for all the guests.  Nor would they have the room for dancing.

Well known prom venues in NJ like ours at Richfield Regency have the room for all the guests and chaperones to sit comfortably as they eat. We also have a fine dance floor where they can let loose and have fun.

Things to consider
Prom Venue in NJ

Your theme and attendees
Proms generally come with a theme. You need a venue that allows you to express your theme effectively. The number of attendees will also be a big question to be answered before you make the decision.

We highly recommend and encourage you to take a tour of our venue and let your imagination and ideas about the theme translate into a reality. We want to you to know that with us you can decorate and be as creative as you wish!

Amenities and safety
Look out for basic facilities while touring venues. Your ideal venue should essentially have a good sound system, lights and clean bathrooms. A venue that comes with chairs, tables, linens and has affiliated service providers can help you to save money.

We have been in business for many years and ever since the beginning our priority has always been to provide a state of the art venue and a place to truly make lasting memories.

Our LED lighting will only add to the experience the guests will have at their prom!

Catering
 At the heart of every event is the quality and presentation of food. No matter how appealing the d├ęcor is or the sheer ambience of the venue, guests would not forgive a bad meal. The importance of food at events has made it an issue to be settled at the early stage of planning. Different choices are available to the planning but it most times boils down to a choice between on premise catering and off premise catering.

On premise catering involves the food being prepared at the event venue. This means that there would be a kitchen at the event venue where everything concerning food will be handled.

Off premise catering on the other hand involves food being prepared at a location outside the event venue. Typically, the cooking is completed and the food is transported plated and ready to be served. In some cases, some aspects of the cooking are finished up at the venue particularly when the menu choices are exotic and delicate.

At Richfield Regency we allow for either on or off premise catering for your prom. We have several menus to choose from and can adhere to your dietary needs. Whatever you choose, we’ll be happy to help you make it happen.

Things to look out for in choosing an off premise catering company

Referrals
Go a step beyond websites and get people to share their experience from using a particular company. When considering a company, focus on the quality of their food as well as the range of options they offer.

Facilities and equipment.
The job of a good off premise catering service is to get the food delivered safely to the venue. The food must also be delivered while it is hot and fresh. To achieve this, they need top of the range equipment and tools. Inspect their facilities and ask questions when you need clarification.

Experience
It is not enough that the catering service has years of experience between their staff. You should also check for experience relating to your kind of event.

This is particularly important in off premise catering where a premium is placed on the presentation as well as the quality of the food.
