1. USP

What’s your venue’s unique selling point? There are 1000s of amazing venues dotted all over the UK.  What sets your venue apart from all the rest?  An experienced venue consultant can help you identify your venue USP and show you how to capitalise on it.

2. Financial Planning

How much will it cost to run your venue?  How much will you need to make in revenue to cover these costs?  How much profit can you achieve?  An experienced venue consultant will be able to advise you what costs to factor in, increase profit margins, put together a sensible pricing strategy and invest wisely.      

3. Market Research

Who are your customers?  Who are your venue competitors?  What are your strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats? An experienced venue consultant will help you effectively examine your marketplace, work with you to identify opportunities and help you keep ahead of the competition.
