Hosting your business event is a great opportunity to make a statement about your business and how you treat your clients, members or employees. The Manatee Riverhouse certainly makes a statement. With panoramic views of the beautiful mile-wide Manatee River and the BEST in-house catering in the region, your attendees will know your organization will treat them first-class all the way!
Here are some great things to consider when you evaluate venues to host your next business function.
1: What is your audience or guest list size?
It’s important to know who’s coming, so you can find the perfect size venue. A large banquet hall with a small crowd will make your event feel like there’s a poor turnout, and big empty spaces make it less likely for guests to engage in socializing or following along with entertainment / content. On the flip side, a large crowd in a small space will just leave everyone feeling cramped and uncomfortable.
The Riverhouse has three levels and an outdoor deck, all of which can be customized to make the perfect space for guest lists ranging from 20 people to more than 300.
2: What are the logistics for getting your guests or audience to your event?
Traffic can be trying for any event. Imagine hosting your business event on one of our nearby islands, only to have a unexpected traffic jam cause your entire guest list to be an hour late. If you are familiar with our area, you know it’s a real possibility and it only takes one car to break down or a simple fender bender or bad weather.
The Riverhouse is IDEALLY located with quick access to downtown Bradenton and multiple highways, including I-75, US64 and US301. Many paths, makes for a smoother journey.
3: Is your venue experienced in your type of event?
Any venue will tell you they can host your event. But you want a venue that knows how to minimize any problems that could arise, because they’ve done it before.
The Riverhouse’s decades of experience in hosting all manner of events for Bradenton’s elite businesses, private individuals, charities and more, means we’ve seen it all and we’ve done it all! From complex conventions, to community events and simple small group parties, we’ve hosted it!
