Question 10 of 10
Read the article below about booking conference venues.
Fill in the gaps. You’ll need one word only for each gap.
How to book a conference
First decision is the choice of venue. Which venue is right will depend (not) just on the number of people attending. It will also depend on the cost (and) whether the participants (are) being charged to attend. If the event lasts for several days the problem of finding accommodation influences the choice, but just (to) complicate the decision it also depends on whether to have everybody on the same premises as the conference. Some seminars break up the sessions (from) time to time into smaller groups which will require additional rooms with the right facilities.
Professionals advise not (to) book any premises or facilities without visiting first. In (any) case, you need to meet the senior organizing staff to find out what they can do and what they have. And it is probably a good idea to test all the equipment and ask about back-ups.
A frustrating problem for organisers laying on the facilities is never being sure just (how) many people will turn up. People go sick, managers (who, that) were overseas suddenly reappear, an emergency at the company prevents some key people attending, and (so) on. Still, some estimate is vital for the booking. It may be indeed one of the factors in deciding the venue and in haggling over the price. If all that sounds just too much hassle there is another option — hire a professional to take the load off your back.
