Outdoor Conference Venues
It may sound strange, but yes, it's a thing and holding a corporate or conference event outdoors or partially outdoors has considerable benefits to your attendees.
Outdoor events open up a whole new set of options - you can innovate your event conference and create lots of different attendee experiences as you are not as constrained by your venue's design. Meeting outdoors seems to re-energise people. The natural daylight and sense of spring arriving give delegates an extra boost of productivity.

The benefits of outdoor conferences
So, why venture outdoors. British employees will averagely work for 34 hours and 26 minutes a week, adding up to a total of 1,795 hours a year, and 84,365 hours over a lifetime, so what better way to break up the working year than creating some opportunities for your employees or delegates to get out of the office.
According to psychologists, exposure to nature helps us shrug off societal pressures, allowing us to remember and value more important things like relationships, sharing, and community.
What else should you consider when organising an outdoor conference?
The biggest piece of advice Lime Venue Portfolio can offer when booking outdoor space is to ensure you have a wet weather option up your sleeve. At Lime Venue Portfolio, we will always give you a contingency option. So, if the heavens open and people need to head indoors, you've got peace of mind your event can carry on as planned.
