Plan an Event / Venues and Locations

Council manage and maintain a large range of venues and locations across the Whangārei District. The location or venue that is chosen for the event can often determine the success of the event. The distance participants have to travel, the venue hire cost, venue resources and venue type all impact on people's perceptions of the event.

A few considerations that need to be addressed when choosing a venue is the actual nature of your event.

  • Will it be held outdoors or indoors?
  • If your event is outdoors, what happens if it rains?
  • Will you book another venue in case it rains?
  • Will you cancel or postpone your event in the case of adverse weather?
  • Will your event require a resource consent for the location?
  • What activities will you be running?
  • What resources do you need to run your activities?
  • What space do you require?
