Now that the world is moving back towards face-to-face entertainment, it feels like the industry is growing larger by the day. If you’re planning an entertainment event — whether it’s a concert, theater performance, comedy show, or anything else along those lines — you have a lot to think about. One of the most significant decisions you’ll have to make is the venue where you’ll host your event. Your choice of space may seem simple right now, but it can truly make or break audience turnout, response, and overall “vibe.”
No matter what type of event you’re planning, there are many reasons to consider an expo center or convention center as your venue. Here are just five of the many benefits of expo center events!
When it comes to event planning, being well-equipped matters. For instance, searching for the right venue for a concert can be difficult if you’re not even sure if the venue in question will have a place for musicians to plug in their equipment. An expo center is a great place to host your entertainment event because expo centers are well-equipped by definition! At the Greater Philadelphia Expo Center at Oaks, we have everything you might need, including plenty of electrical connections, storage, loading docks, security, vendors for staging, lighting, acoustics, and A/V, and interior design services.
Available Services & Amenities
Once you’ve arranged a location for your event, it’s time to kick it up a notch by enticing attendees with “extras.” A high-quality expo center will have additional services and amenities to make your entertainment event even greater! These include, but aren’t limited to…
- Concessions (Food & Beverages)
- Hotel Discounts & Partnerships
- Hotel Transportation
- Ample Parking
By booking your event at an expo center, you’ll no longer need to rely on a third-party service for any of these amenities. You’ll make life easier and save money!
Professional & Dedicated Staff
Another great reason to choose an expo center for your event venue is that they will have dedicated and professional staff ready to assist with everything from promoting your event on social media to helping attendees find their parking spots. Our event professionals have experience working with all types of exhibitions, including world-class entertainers.
