The Hull truck and reel cinema venues were dropped from the list due to being to expensive and unavailable. The Vue and Fruit venues had to be followed up for the next meeting.
This process of keeping a possible venue and dropping them, shows that the group is considering what is within the realistic limitations of the event.
“With an open-ended budget, anyone can plan a great event. But your financial resources are limited. An event planner can always plan a great event with any reasonable budget” (Hard, About.com).
It also shows that the group is looking at the facilities available at each venue and working out whether the price exceeds the possible benefits. This shows a professional attitude that is flexible and will consider all the available information whilst planning the event. Planning should be flexible because it must allow for the event to evolve as new information is received (Conway, 2004).
