Event Logistics Guide
VENUE SELECTION

When selecting a venue, there are many variables to consider.

  • Convenience is key. If the VERB Activity Zone event is close to home, people are more likely to attend.
  • How many people are invited? Are you inviting a few grades from a school or an entire school or after–school program along with family members? Or are you inviting multiple schools or tweens from the entire city?
  • Allow ample room for people to walk around, be active, and play.
  • Provide areas for each exhibitor to hold an activity demonstration. This could be a soccer kick, dance area, tennis net, etc. We recommend that you provide each exhibitor with 10' x 10' space. You can offer a larger space if needed.
  • Some exhibitors may need access to electricity. Is there access to outlets? Will extension cords or generators be required?
  • Is there ample and convenient parking? Will traffic control be a problem?

Venue Suggestions

There are many great venue possibilities for community–wide VERB Activity Zone events. Among them are:

  • schools — centrally located to existing audiences of tweens, offer both indoor and outdoor possibilities
  • community colleges — may offer more space if you expect a large crowd
  • area parks — can draw additional walk–up attendees
  • churches and community centers — central to existing audiences, may offer indoor facilities
