    Where to start?

    cpalmer2982 Wayfarer

      I want to open a event hall in the Houston area. My plan is to rent out my event hall to host various events such as babyshowers, engagement parties, conferences, birthday celebrations, retirements, etc. I have already started by business plan. I want to know what else is expected prior to applying for a business loan.  I would like to be prepared prior to applying.

          Welcome to the community, cpalmer2982.


          Have you already found the hall or are you planning on building one? Congratulations on having your business plan started already. That's a huge undertaking by itself. Have you thought about how you will market your event hall yet? You'll want to be sure to set monies aside for marketing/advertising.


          Does anyone have any other questions or suggestions for cpalmer?

              No I haven't found a hall yet. The thought of building crossed my mind

              however it's a little pricey. I have thought about my marketing strategy.

              I currently have a small business 'Lil' Tush is Diaper Creations. I used

              love using social media. My plan is to invite all the event planners that I

              have been associated with to a viewing of the venue.  I would of course

              make it an open event. I will advertise with fliers and build a rapport

              with business owners in the area. I also plan to generate several contest

              where people can win a free rental service with the venue via social media.
