Indoor vs Outdoor Events

27th July 2018

Deciding whether you want to run an event indoors or outdoors can be a challenge when considering your next party, fundraiser or gathering. Both options come with their benefits, but they also come with potential problems that can turn the day from dream to disaster if you do not adequately plan for them.

Here is a look at which option is best for you.

The Season

The biggest issue with an outdoor event is the need to consider the weather. Even during the summer months, the possibility of rain is something that is always lurking around the corner, and there is no bigger buzzkill than rain. To tackle this, organisers will book gazebos or tents to offer protection, but these do come at an additional cost.

 

The Size

Indoor events may protect you and your guests from the weather, but they also come with limits for how large the party can be. You can work around this by booking more rooms, but like organising gazebos for outside, this comes at a cost.

With outdoor events, you needn’t worry about running out of room – and your guests can enjoy the surrounding area at their leisure. Furthermore, the open air eliminates the possibility of stuffy lethargy that comes with being in one room for too long, and you get more opportunities for extra facilities.

 

The Security

A prime concern with any event is security. With so many guests, it can feel impossible to keep track of them all – and so you run the risk of non-invitees finding their way in. Indoor venues give you the added security of CCTV, lockable doors and dedicated rooms to store valuables. This is something that is not always possible in the open environment of an outdoor event.

 

The Style

Both options provide you with different possibilities for decoration, and it is all about what you want to achieve with your desired style. Indoor events mean that you can decorate however you like and have endless possibilities for themes. On the other hand, outdoor events mean you can take advantage of the surrounding area – and are perfect for adding the beauty of nature to the atmosphere of your event.
