Your choice of venue can make or break your event. That’s why when deciding where to host your next business conference, there’s several important factors you need to consider first. Here’s our 7 top tips for making sure you select the best venue for your business conference.
Establishing the size of your conference and how many people will be attending should be the starting point when selecting a venue. Whether you’re planning a simple conference for locals or have grand plans for an elaborate international conference, Joondalup Resort can accommodate to your specific needs with a variety of different room configurations.
Our flexible and versatile conference room space gives us the flexibility to cater for groups between six and 450. Not only that, all our conference rooms offer a beautiful view with plenty of natural light – so you won’t find yourself shut away in a small box! All rooms in our function centre are designed to impress your guests, regardless of the size of your event.
Whether a venue is easily accessible and in a prime location can be the deciding factor when selecting a space for your business conference. Your attendees want convenience, so it’s important to ensure transportation is readily available to the venue and to confirm beforehand that there’s ample parking or valet service for those who choose to drive.
If you’re looking for a central location with the charm of a far away retreat, why not consider Joondalup Resort? Just 25 minutes north of Perth CBD and five minutes from WA’s sunset coast, Joondalup Resort is the perfect location for your next business conference. We also understand there’s nothing worse than the hassle of having to hunt for a parking spot. That’s why we provide our guests the option of using our free and secure onsite parking.
Finding a high quality venue for good value can be difficult. You want to make sure you tick off all your boxes of what you require from a venue while also staying within your budget. At Joondalup Resort, we pride ourselves on finding a conference venue to suit any budget and all needs.

Another important factor to consider when choosing a venue for your business conference is whether there is suitable lodging options available.

So before selecting a venue, find out if they can accommodate you and your attendees.

Before choosing a venue, you need to find out what audiovisual equipment you will require for your business conference. This includes:
Microphones and podium
Overhead projector and screen
You will also need to see if the venue offers charging stations and Wifi availability for your attendees, who will appreciate being able to stay connected during the conference.
At Joondalup Resort, all our packages include audiovisual equipment (whiteboard, flipchart and projector screen) and complimentary Wifi. If you have additional technical requirements, our professional Events Team are more than happy to help meet your specific needs.
Food & Beverage
Along with technology, another in-house service you will need to enquire about is the catering of your event. While most venues provide onsite food and beverage facilities, it’s still important to make sure they provide convenient choices. You’ll also need to see if they can accommodate food allergies or special diets so everyone who attends your conference is covered.
At Joondalup Resort, all our packages include food and beverage with optional upgrades available to you.
